    Why do members on style forum tend to not iron wrinkles from their denim jeans? Is this viewed as not stylish or is it too time consuming?

    The same people that frequently wash their clothing and don't walk around smelling like wet dogs and sour milk.

    Who doesn't iron their jeans? I even put a crease in mine.

    I buy the pleated jeans - selvedge, of course - so I can have more crease action. And then my mommy irons them.

    jeans were originally a workwear garment and, in staying true to the spirit of them, are properly worn in a carefree fashion. moreover, jeans are valued for the patina & wear they develop over time which is counteracted by your fruitless attempts to retain their factory condition

    you're not clever, sophisticated, or proper by ironing them - HTH buddy

    it might give your fits that sense of masculinity you so desperately need ... like the 80s hall & oats vibe (yes, you can use him for inspiration).
