Gentlemen! Having well – ironed clothes, or in fact, having clothes that are not ironed well, says a lot about a man. An ironed shirt, sans crinkles states you’re a man of discipline and a man who sees the importance in the finer details. For what seems like a simple chore, many struggle to either iron their shirts in a timely manner or find themselves with a shirt full of creases after rushing through the process. Below I show you through the steps I take when ironing our shirts and provide a few tips along the way.
A good quality iron is worth its weight in gold. Not only is it better for your clothes, but the extra cost paid will be made up in time saved. I like to look for a sole plate with a high heat capacity and steam delivery system. We prefer to use a heavier iron as it is smoother and quicker as you only need to move over the fabric once. Ironing boards aren’t so important, however the cover and pad is worth investing in something quality.
Before you get started, fill the iron with cold water. Steam is the key to getting rid of unwanted crinkles and creases. The best time to iron the shirt is when it is still slightly damp and has some moisture. If your clothes are dry it can be useful having a spray bottle on hand. You will definitely need this if your iron doesn’t have a steam function.
I always like to start with the collar as it’s the focal point of the shirt. Unfold the fabric and on the underside move the iron from one point of the collar to the other.
From here move onto your cuffs. Unbutton or unfold the cuff so it is perfectly flat and again on the underside iron over the fabric.
Using the end of the board to hold the shoulder in place, start on the front side with the buttons and move from the shoulder down. Be sure to move the point of the iron in and around the buttons, but never over. Repeat this on the right hand side of the shirt ensuring you take your time on the placket.
Position one of the shoulders on the top edge of the board to give you half the shirt to work. This then allows you to easily slide the shirt to finish the other side. I like to do the bottom part of the shirt first and finish with the yoke.
Use the seam to flatten the sleeve. It is essential that the sleeve is smooth as you are ironing two layers of fabric and don’t want to crease the other side. Work the iron from the shoulder down to the top of the cuff.
Hang the shirt ready for wear on a wooden hanger. Let the fabric cool down before wear as whilst it is still hot it will set to your body shape and new crinkles will show.
