I am curious if you all iron your clothing? I am a guy, and I have yet to iron anything, even my khakis and polos. I just take things out of the dryer and fold them until I wear them. I hang all my shirts/tshirts, so they don't get too wrinkled. I feel sort of guilty. Should I go buy an iron?

I don't even own an iron. That's what dry cleaners/launderers are for.

I do my own laundry. But now I'm wondering if I've been living my life as a savage, having never ironed anything.

As little as possible. If something needs ironing after washing, it hangs in the closet for a very long time before the iron actually touches it.

That's what I thought the topic was too!!! I have heard of this being done, but mostly by those housewives in the 50's vintage. I don't know of anyone who still does it, or will admit to doing it!!!!

I make a point not to buy clothing that requires ironing, if at all possible. I very, very, very rarely iron.

I mainly wear tshirts, jeans, sometimes polo shirts and dickies shorts/pants. I never notice any wrinkles, but maybe I just don't see them. Are irons a thing of the past? It doesn't seem like I even need to iron my dress shirts, as I think they're wrinkle free.

No. I take everything right out of the dryer when it's done and hang it up right away. Anything that needs to be pressed goes to the dry cleaner.
