Agreed.Lifes too short for ironing creases in jeans,although quite a few skinheads do and if i`m honest it does look smart.

Surely it can't be to do with life being too short.
There's always time for ironing stuff properly and if it looks better not ironed, then don't.
You'll be not shaving and wearing dirty shoes next!

Anyway, the twisted seams on old Levi's can make a crease in the conventional place look very odd / wrong.
Similar with Lee Riders but in the opposite direction.
So if you only ever wore Levis or Lees, its another good reason not to iron your jeans.

Thought I'd share this: https://www.pediwear.co.uk/pediwear-collection/products/5179.php

Apparently Pediwear created their own line and designed a brogue boot with airwair sole. Looks decent and probably made on one of the Northampton makers' lasts.

On a different theme, a nice pic of an original Italian bomber from '68:

Anyone leave the privacy of their own home wearing moccasins like these?

apparently ironing jeans and even starching them is a growing fad not just among some skinheads, but among normals too:

I tried to iron a crease in a couple of times and it took me an absoloute age and still didn`t look right-fuck that! It takes me ages to iron them normally,so i`m not standing there longer than I have to,just to put a crease in-smart or not.

If ironing is not your thing, you can take your jeans to the dry cleaners where they can steam press it. I did that only once to one of my stf 501s because I didn't want to throw it in the washing machine and fade out the dark indigo color, I got it back with sharp creases the crease marks are still visible now that its completely faded andthat was 4 years ago.

I used to have a black pair that were made for wearing outside,with a more durable sole,when I was at school in the early 80s,they were popular back then
