I know I've got a couple of people more fashion savvy than me here (not that that's hard to do). So, you order a linen coat from a very small picture online. It arrives in less than ideal packaging. Therefore, it's extremely rumpled. How do you know if this is the sort of linen coat that's supposed to look slightly wrinkled or not?

'Cause I can't get the damn thing to look not wrinkled.

Will I be going out looking like a huge slob if I wear it Friday?

I have only one linen thing, and it is constantly returning to its originally rumpled state. I think linen is supposed to be somewhat rummply.

Okay, thanks!

I think you can get linen unrumpled, but only if you take it to the dry cleaners.

Of course, as soon as you sit down, it'll rumple. Linen's like that. Very easily rumpled.

So showing up in rumpled linen isn't a huge fashion mistake....

Linen = rumpled

That's been my experience. Then again I should be one to talk. All my clothes appear to be in a rumpled state, LOL.

Let me put it this way. Because I didn't want to give Browncoats a bad name when I wore it, I had to _buy_ an iron because up till now I haven't needed one...

Unrumple it as best you can, then don't stress if it gets somewhat rumply while you wear it. You don't want it to be really wrinkly though. I try to stay away from real linen.

The reason I didn't stay away is because the iron cost more than the jacket. And the iron was 6$.

Wow, where do you shop?

That jacket, a couple shirts and a suit were all 2 dollars for each item. I got them through bcoutlet.com. They're a BITCH to shop through, though, because they'll keep items in the database that they don't have anymore, or that they have one size 2 in, so you just have to keep adding items to your cart and about 2% of the time you can buy them and the rest of the time it's "that item is not available". It's a cast iron bitch to shop there so it's pretty much only for very low income people with buttloads of free time.

going along with all the other people who are saying linen = rumply. it's a feature, not a bug, cuz when it's rumply it hides the bulge of a gun better. john woo taught me that, i think.
