    Can't seem to find a definite answer, so I'm posting it here. As per title, iron a box pleat down the entire length of the back or no? Do you have a preferred length, or keep it similar to the length it originally came with?

    I accept whatever it is the laundry does back there. I'm guessing the pleat goes somewhere to the middle of the back.

    I iron around box pleats. If you do iron 'em, do it evenly. Personally, I like my shirts to flow smoothly with minimal or no creasing anywhere on the shirt, so I don't like to iron in hard creases like you would by ironing a pleat.
