Is wearing a jacket everyday too much?

I cant afford to dry clean my shirts and would like to minimize the time spent on ironing. Unfortunately, I also own non-non-iron shirts,

A jacket does not excuse a wrinkled shirt.

Want to avoid ironing?
1) Remove your shirts from the wash immediately after the cycle stops.
2) Put it in the dryer on low for no more than 3-5 minutes.
3) Remove promptly, hang it up, smooth any wrinkles and let it air dry.

  1. Only buy Eton shirts. They last forever and don't require ironing.
  2. Like the others said, if you hang dry, you don't generally need to iron.

Woah, I'm a huge Eton guy, all I own, but I still iron mine. What're you doing different? I wash mine on dedicates setting and air dry. They're not wrinkled like say my undershirts would be, but they're certainly not crisp.

Please advise.

So, If you like to minimize your time then I will give you an idea. I sweat a lot, for that reason my shirt became wet. The shirt is curled while traveling. What I do?? After going to home from office, I hanged my shirt onto a Hanger and spread it outside into open air. As a result sweats became dry and wrinkles became vanished for air flow. If you have no space outside of your home then hang it inside of your room and switched on the fan. By following this way, I wear a shirt 4-5 days in a week. Isn't easy?

You can also hang up your dress shirts in your bathroom when you shower for that extra steamy free action
