Creaseless trousers?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
How do you get pressed trousers without a crease? I've seen several photos of flat front trousers without a crease but no wrinkles. Any ideas?

Most of those creaseless trousers you see have some nylon or cashmere or something besides wool in them.

Usually those are khakis. No real trick to it, just the same as ironing the body of a shirt. Press in the middle and rotate it around. If your trousers are very slim though, there may be a problem.

I'm missing something here. No front crease? Or no wrinkles? Or both?

You can take a high-twist fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily and simply don't have a front crease made. Some heavier cloths also do not hold a good crease but don't wrinkle easily, too. Also, if you are looking at photos from ads or websites, it's not surprising taht the trousers don't have any wrinkles.

What I meant was that the trousers are clearly pressed but do not have a crease down the front. This recent photo by the Sartorialist sparked my curiosity.

Just don't press a crease in.

I always press my khakis without a crease, I think they look better this way.

Press them with the leg flat, like a pair of jeans.
I have a Jil Sander wool trouser without a front crease. I specify it every time I bring it to the dry cleaner: no crease. It doesn't seem to be a problem for them.

If you will notice, David Letterman wears his suit trousers without a crease. The trouser has to be pressed with a hand iron not on a pressing machine. Using the press would put creases on the outseam and inseam.

If you want to do this and have trouble on a regular ironing board, get a sleeve board and use that for pressing the difficult parts like around the pockets.

True? How long has that been going on? Weird, no?
