    Thread title explains purpose. Do you find them easy to use? Do they decrease the lifespan of a trouser? If you're pressing the trousers of a suit all the time but not the jacket, are you going to get a lot of differentiation between the two fabrics?

    I iron when necessary. Never saw the appeal of a trouser press.

    Yes, as a quick and reasonable approach to keeping creases in trousers: All the other suggestions you make about life and damage to cloth are totally wrong. I also press from time to time as that does enable the garment to be fully prepared.
