TRL Helpdesk: No iron shirts

Recommended Posts

Just something I was thinking about this morning:  I get most of my shirts from M&S, most of them have a "no iron" label on them but I iron them every time.  Does anyone actually not iron these shirts?  If you don't, do you not look like a crumpled crisp bag?

When my partner dumped me last year, she gave me a new iron, I've had it 12 months & I haven't even taken it out of its box.

They're not important until you're not getting enough.

Depends on the shirt. A formal shirt, for a job interview, I would iron straight out of the packaging. Or at very least the front part which is visible behind the jacket and tie. For a less formal shirt, I'd look at how it appears after washing and hanging.

Plus I have a few linen shirts for hot weather, which crumple and crease almost immediately, whether you've ironed them or not.

I don't wear formal shirts very often anymore.

 

However, used to always buy non iron shirts from M&S.  Never once ironed them.  Either drip dry or a quick whizz round in the tumble dryer.

 

Always looked the very epitome of swish.

 

Mind you, my colleagues always used to say that I got dressed in the dark.

I iron my non-iron shirts (non M&S). I could probably get away without if dried indoors on a hanger, but they do look better once the iron has been run over them. Easier to do them though.

This I find is the main benefit of non iron - they need a going over if you have anything important on, but they don't take half as long to iron as some of the crinkly regular shirts which end up going into a sort of Brad Dwyer rotation of only being picked in desperation.

Charles Thyrwtt or TM Lewin shirts are better than M&S for mine Clive.

Non iron = easier to iron if you have standards. If you don't, they're pretty much ok.
