I don't have a white dinner jacket and would love to have/wear one. But I've always thought of a white dinner jacket as something that belongs in some function in the open air, rather than inside a hall. However, this impression could be completely baseless. But then again, doesn't the South have its own rules?

I thought that would depend on the fabric you choose? I personally have not had problems ironing pure cotton shirts of differing qualities as long as the shirt is damp when I iron it. Your poor wife. You should either learn to iron, or take your laundered shirts to the dry cleaner's to be pressed.
