    A few months ago I started a new job traveling the country. We are at a location for 3 weeks, home for a weekend and on to the next location. Needless to say I live out of a suit case. It isn't so much the packing and unpacking that wrinkles my clothes its wearing them for a day. I bought some Dockers D1 dress pants that I wear pretty frequently. Even things like rolling up my pant legs to put on my socks will wrinkle the pants for the rest of the day.

    The issue is I work in factories where I'm in a clean yet dusty environment. I'd rather not spend a fortune on top tier pants for work but these Dockers are killing me with trying to look professional. Any recommendations on slimmer dress pants that don't wrinkle easily? Trying to keep my budget to under $75 a pair.

    Dockers are cotton, right? Cotton wrinkles. Try for something in wool or a wool blend. Much better wrinkle resistance.

    And put your socks on before your trousers.

    I honestly didn't even think of material, was more focused on who's offering "Wrinkle Free", so simple

    I always think of this after I'm already dressed and putting on my socks, maybe some morning i'll think to change my routine.
