How to iron your shirt the right way

November 26, 2020 1:29 pm


Ironing is not a job that anyone really enjoys but it makes the world of difference to your clothes. If you have a wardrobe full of Mens Farah Clothes and some beautiful shirts from stockists such as https://www.louisboyd.co.uk/brands/farah.html you will want to ensure that they look equally as beautiful and stylish when you wear them and ironing is the best way to achieve this.

First of all, you will need a clean iron – any scuff marks on the plate can be transferred to your shirt, rendering it unwearable immediately. The iron must be filled with water and placed at a medium to high temperature, ensuring that its steam function is set.


If it is especially creased, you should spray the shirt first with water. Start by ironing on both sides of the collar, ensuring that you press the fold in. Next, iron the yoke, which should be ironed on the ironing board after carefully arranging it.


The sleeves should be ironed next. On both sides, the cuff buttons should be undone and ironed until the sleeve is ironed. To ensure that the shoulder crease is correctly ironed, the seam along the bottom of the sleeve should be ironed first.

The shirt’s main body would then need to be tackled. First, with one half, both front and back, on the surface, the shirt should be put face up. To stop ironing any creases in the cloth, the material should be pulled gently with one hand while you iron with the other.


It is then appropriate to turn the front of the shirt away, revealing the back of that half of the shirt, which should then be ironed. The shirt should now be pushed around the board and the other half of the back, followed by the final front section, should then be ironed. The buttons and buttonholes, as well as logos such as those on men’s Farah shirts, should be taken care of.


Finally, before it is either worn, placed in a wardrobe or folded, the shirt should be put on a hanger and left to cool.
