    Sleeves yes, cuffs no. ( too cheap/lazy to get a sleeve board) Those damn shirts should feel lucky to be ironed at all! [​IMG]

    Sames - yes on the sleeve, no on the cuff - as a matter of practicality more than anything though I don't ming the look.

    No crease in the sleeves. Although I do have a sleeve board, I use it mostly on the cuffs and not the sleeves. It's quicker and easier for me to iron the sleeves without a crease and not use the board.

    Re: Crease: Sleeve no, cuff no. I iron the cuff with a 'curve', so it's not flat.

    I always ironed a crease on the sleeves when I ironed my shirts.

    Sleeves no, cuffs no. I specifically iron out any crease or wrinkles on the top of the sleeve.
