Here's the problem with summer clothes: they need to be ironed.
Winter is great - I wear sweaters and sweatshirts and heavy jeans most of the time and none of those things need to be ironed. But the summer is another thing altogether. Everything is either cotton or linen because I am overly sensitive to the heat and I can't abide by anything that is man-made, synthetic, or jersey-type stuff. I need the beathablilty of cotton and linen. And they come with wrinkles.
Now I remember being told by a southern friend that down south they call them "expensive wrinkles" when it comes to linen, and they forgive them. But they have to start out crisp and flat, and there's a price to pay for that. Our iron is used just about every day, often more than once, because we are both "iron-as-you-go" people. No sense in ironing things and then putting into drawers where they will wrinkle all over again!
I can't imagine all the hours my mother put in to ironing back in the good old days before permanent press fabric. But even modern clothes need to meet up with a nice hot iron every so often. And my cool linen shirts and pants always do.
That's why we have an ironing board in our bedroom...
