How to Correctly Iron a Shirt

Growing up, one of my chores was to fold the laundry. Thankfully that didn't include ironing because for whatever reason, it's not something I enjoyed. I still don't enjoy it (but would rather iron than do the dishes). And even when I do iron, I half-ass it and do it as quickly as possible. But I'm fully aware that there may not be a greater faux pas than wearing a wrinkly shirt. With that in mind, Mr. Porter has created a how-to video, with the beginner "ironer" in mind, taking us through various techniques for optimal crispness. Details include the correct direction to iron your collar, how to handle the yolk, proper sleeve maintenance, and even an added bonus of how to store your shirts for travel.
