  1. Anyone here use dryers with their cotton dress shirts? Any issues like shrinkage over time or accelerated wear and tear?
  2. What's that you have on the tip of your Silver Star?
  3. Is it sad that I knew exactly what video this was before I clicked?
  4. David Attenborough's style of speaking is also quite nice.

    Shirts

    Well a little variety is nice. And the oxwhite is relatively easy to iron. I count in my wardrobe right now 4 JTs, 1 BB I bought at 70% off at Outlet, and 3 Oxwhites. At one point I had 7 JTs and I could wear them all week, but had to phase out my initial 3 due to wear and tear. Buttons were popping out every other wash as well. To be fair I had them made in 2015 and used them every week.
  6. IMHO, MF is a much better local strapmaker. https://instagram.com/mohdfadhilstrap?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=1r5bajj6n2b1c

    Is that meant to be a bib?
  8. At least she didn't say "decenter".
  9. Yes I did before too. I get best results with a lot of water and my Tefal on max temp. I still think my Silver Star is too hot. I might try it on minimum next week.
  10. Just tried this, didn't work for me. Here is my JT shirt immediately after ironing.me
  11. Ok. And you don't need to wait for the section to cool down before you move to the next section?
  12. Finally got the Silverstar about a month back. Excellent results pressing pants and putting in a crease, but I am not getting good results ironing shirts. I got frustrated and switched back to my Tefal steam iron last night, and I just realised how much hotter the Silverstar is, even with the Tefal set to max. So I'm thinking I was simply using a too high heat on the Silverstar, to the point that the fabric of the shirt doesn't cool enough as I move the shirt around, and 'forgets' the ironing it has received. So what setting do you use on the Silverstar for shirts? I was using 4. Or do you also have a vacuum board that you use with it?
