Thats a great point. I used to own so many iron free shirts. I got used to wearing shirts being so easy... Wear, throw in washing machine, then hang dry, and voila ready to wear (or at least enough to add a sportscoat and hide wrinkles until they disappeared on their own )
Just learn how to iron ;-) 4 mins per shirt or so...You surely have the time for that?Thats a great point. I used to own so many iron free shirts. I got used to wearing shirts being so easy...

Problem is, they are I'll fitting being cut for older men ( even my seidensticker shirts at 90euros each).
So I bought suitsupply shirts, great but buy after the first wash, oh boy.. forgot all ironing skills so ended up going back to my older shirts (that to be honest held up so well, until a few started rippng at elbows.. I did wear them 8+years - I do have a lot to rotate through tho).
Then I discovered Spier Mackay and love their shirts too but indeed it's the same problem, a lot of Ironing is needed ...
this is an amateur (but genuine question to learn)
Why would companies produce non wrinkle free shirts and why do people wear them? I e Who has all that FreeTime to spend ironing?
Is it because they are more comfortable?
They last longer?
I did understand that they had less chemicals which is an important point!
Thanks for the feedback and answers
I'm sure someone will tell you to stop driving to work
I personally just see no reason to buy a shirt that requires ironing when there are alternatives. I don't find any discomfort in non-iron or wrinkle free shirting.I'm sure someone will tell you to stop driving to work
4 min per shirts maybe, but setting up, ironing minimum 5 shirts (probably 10 if you have a good Rotation) we are speaking minimum 1hour.
If I can save an hour on sundays, I'm all for it. Now if you tell me the chemicals added are really terrible (for myself, the environment, and the shirt longevity) then in all ears - and a better argument too
