wrinkled....and that's a quality that should maybe be honored, not oppressed.
It's almost the beauty of the fabric IMO....
Also....I only own casual lightweight linen shirts....not heavier weight ones....

I mean ppl don't give a fuck about clothing in 2015. We consume 2x as much as we did even 20 years ago because it's so cheap it's designed to become disposable crap. Lots of people don't even own irons. So yeah it's wrong but nobody cares. If you're not wearing a $5 tshirt from old navy on the weekend you're probably ahead of the game.

I usually iron my linen shirts a bit to knock out the hard wrinkles. A good hot iron with proper steam will knock out the soft wrinkles. Also using spray starch or spray sizing helps as well.

The more you wash linen the softer it gets, wrinkles less... If your garment can be washed, some items might shrink. I make my own linen shirts so I prewash the fabric to prevent shrinkage.

casual fabric anyways.....
I'm not talking balled up, stuffed in the corner for 2 months wrinkled....

I'm talking fresh washed, line dried or low heat dried, fresh out, wrinkled....

I'm very interested in these shirts you make for yourself though....you got pics?? Is it hard?
I want a linen daishiki....

So you droppin $40 to $80 bucks per shirt? Shirts coated in formaldehyde resin to give them that magical wrinkle free look. Possible cancer connection to that chemical, watch ya back.
