Now I use a world class dry cleaner that offers hand finishing at $9 per, which is riduclous, but my time is worth a lot more than that. It's difficult to own anything nice these days unless you are willing to care for the items yourself.

The last I heard lawyers did a bit better than $9 per hour. Your cleaner should be paying you to do your shirts.

In a weird sort of way, I kind of enjoy doing it. It reminds me of when I was a kid and my dad would pay me 50 cents a shirt to do his laundry. Fast forward to 2011, when I told my dad that I was spending about 2 hours every Sunday ironing, he told me that was the dumbest thing he had heard in a very long time. LOL

So do I. Some nice music with it and of course an iron that steams like hell, because that sounds good.

Yeah, Tuesday evenings are my ironing days. Mondays wash, Tuesdays iron. Practically my whole evening is devoted. I really hate doing it though. I sweat like a pig.

Meh. Wish I was wearing a white shirt.

Lufty - suit looks pretty good in general. There seem to be some bumps along the shoulder so perhaps the padding needs to get straightened out. Also, I'd recommend taking in the waist to give it more shape which I think would look on you.

I iron all of my shirts the morning I wear them.

All this ironing talk is making my head hurt. Wish I could justify doing it all, but no way it's ever going to happen unfortunately.

The padding is wonky and extends a bit too far, hence…

I had considered some additional waist suppression - but the illusion here may be from lens distortion. Here's another shot from a different angle:

As do I. Or the night before, if I'm in a planning sort of mood.

Probably the last outing for this suit. After being told repeatedly here that the jacket is too short on me, I've finally realized you're all right. And it has teh divots, too.

I dont think the socks are all that bad. That said, the shoes are probably half a size too big and so I usually wear my thickest socks with them, all of which are argyles from Venzani.
