Stylish photoblogger The Sartorialist takes to his website today to discuss ironing. Unsurprisingly, he's got very specific tastes. "When I go on a big trip that will include Milan I always iron just enough shirts to get there - and then have the shirts pressed at my hotel, the Hotel Principe di Savoia. They do the most incredible shirt pressing ever. Incredible to the point that I had to go down to the laundry room and have them explain how they did it...I have worn shirts for almost a full day with barely a wrinkle anywhere except for high movement spots."
