    I have noticed that with %100 cotton long sleeved shirts, when I bend my elbow, they get creases on the inside very easily. Does this happen to all cotton shirts (long sleeves) or I am buying cheap ones? What can be done to avoid this?

    Yes, it a sign that you are wearing a real shirt made of a real fabric showing character and authenticity.

    Real 100% cotton wrinkles... so wear your wrinkles with proud.... However I have read that some weaving styles wrinkle less than others

    I used to try to keep my clothing looking fresh and pressed for as long as possible. Now I just wear clothes and they look as they look; at the end of the day I rarely say that wrinkle looks horrible, I should have sat in a different way.

    I find that poplin wrinkles the most and most textures don't crush as easily or shoe wrinkles as easily I should say

    I find that my pinpoint shirts will crease and wrinkle if you look at them wrong. I no longer even buy pinpoint shirts because they wrinkle so easily. I prefer broadcloth. Apparently 2-ply shirting fabrics wrinkle less.
