    I just bought a few pairs of flat front lightweight wool pants that don't have any sort of crease in them. I'm contemplating pressing one in (or rather, having a dry cleaner do it). Thoughts on which is a better look for flat front wool pants? These are mostly for business casual days (dress shirt, no tie).

    It's up to you. Personally, I think that slim pants look better with a crease.

    Wear them a few times without the crease and when you're ready to take them to the dry cleaners you can have a crease put in if you think it's needed. Without the crease, it's a different look and it may grown on you.

    Or you can get a trouser press/valet.
