Orvis Kaki Care Recommendations

I recently acquired three pair of Orvis Ultimate Kakis. One is new. The other two are very slightly used from eBay. I like the high rise. They are pleated. Similar to my LE chinos long rise, pleated. The cotton is thicker than LE. Also, they are probably not treated for wrinkle suppression like my LE. My question is how would you care for these? I usually wash and iron chinos. I never use starch. I like a crease. Would you wash and iron Orvis? Seems like sending them to a cleaners might be a whole lot more convenient. Since the cotton is so thick, they could press them quite readily. What do you say?
