Enough with the wrinkles

I moved to a new place with in-unit washer and dryer a few months ago. Since I started using those machines, my button-down casual and dress shirts come out of the laundry extremely wrinkled. Jeans also end up wrinkled enough that they usually require ironing. I've almost never had to iron clothes in the past. Now I spend quite a bit of time ironing everything, and it's especially difficult and time-consuming because the wrinkles are so severe. How can I stop this from happening? Ideally I want to go back to those blissful days of not ironing at all. A few pertinent facts inside. [more inside]

Men's Shirt Selection and Care

GrowingUpFilter: In the middle of changing my look (as previous thread attests). I want to go slightly smarter, and have been buying some shirts lately. Quite expensive ones (for me, at least). Except, I can't figure out how to iron the damn things. Sleeves askew, collars curled. Should I get them laundered instead? Also, what exactly defines a good fit on a shirt? Should it look like a second skin? Where should it puff and billow?
