post #4996 of 6228

I would buy a grand total of "0" non-iron shirts.

^ so what?

People forget one additional (and traditional) reason for ironing - disinfection.
Why else would anyone iron underwear or bed linen?

I think S&M should sell whatever helps them. I don't mind the non iron shirts as long as it doesn't take away from their core pieces. I wouldn't buy any, but whatever keeps the doors open and S&M expanding.

This is my feeling as well, although I don't buy or wear non-iron shirts.

 

I've heard that non-irons don't typically last as long as must-irons? I dunno...I have a full time job in the financial industry and 2 kids that I spend the rest of my waking hours with and I still find time to iron my own shirts. I won't judge though...

This has been my experience as well, although it may have nothing to do with the fact that they are non-iron. Non-iron shirts just tend to have a weird feel to them that is not at all pleasing on the skin. Not to mention they usually need ironing anyway.

I started dry cleaning shirts about 6 months ago.  Best $20-30 every 2-3 weeks I spend.  Its $2/shirt.   I have no desire to iron shirts in the evenings or on weekends.  Same gig as you with the 2 young kids. 

I will wash and iron an odd shirt if I have a specific purpose for it and its in the "pile", but usually just wear something else.

I hear you guys on the ironing but what I normally do is I will wash say 10 or so dress shirts and iron about 5 or 6 at a time. If I wake up and I want to wear a particular shirt that hasn't been ironed yet, I just iron it. I mean it takes a couple mins or so.

I rather save that $20-$30. But to each his own.

Which tie is that? This one?

Is it just pressed for each shirt? I can't say/recall last time I had a shirt dry cleaned but if I knew of a convenient place that would clean/press my shirts for $2 each, I'd be all over that. Where do you go?

Best practice, IMO, is to gently launder your own shirts (because you can select your own gentle detergents and ensure they get the right treatment) then take them to a reputable cleaner and get "press only".

I always cold wash and hang dry. Has worked for me so far.

Cold wash and press. Sometimes not perfect or the odd wrinkle near the shoulder or cuff. But my time is worth more then 20$. Not trying to sound like a dick by any means, but my kids consume a hell of a lot of my time.
I think it's actually 2.20/shirt or so.
I'm in the Oakville/Milton area so I go to a couple guys out here. Pricing ranges from 2 - 2.50.

Is pricing downtown that much more?

Thanks for the info. I don't know but I'm going to find out!
