HOW TO IRON A DRESS SHIRT


My new gorgeous flatmate in Soho, Gonzo, promised to teach me how to iron properly.

He was a former Abercrombie & Fitch model and now a senior flight steward at Virgin Atlantic. He’s very particular with the way he dresses. Never goes out with a wrinkled shirt on!

I recorded our candid conversation with his friend Karl that takes ironing at a very high and serious level! Haha

What you need:

An ironing board
An iron (Gonzo gushes over his Tefal iron found in Hongkong that sells for £30)

Gonzo suggests that we invest on a good iron. For him, people give you the attention you deserve when you present yourself well. He says people appreciate those whom they see and know took effort in looking good especially when coming to work.

(He insists on ironing the collar first because doing this last will wrinkle all the other parts you did first!)

(Follow the seam of the sleeve; Create a straight line from the shoulders to the wrist.)

Yey! Thanks, G, for taking the time!

Here’s our 3-minute conversation:

Enjoy!
