(mellow band music) – Hey now, I’m Dorian, joined by my wife and
celebrity men’s wear stylist, Ashley Weston.
– Hi guys. – So today, Ash, we have a
great reader and viewer question for Two Minute Tuesday. Let’s get into it. (upbeat electronic music) So Ash, Timothy Leary, hilarious name. – Why?
(mellow electronic music) – Google the guy if you
don’t know who that is. – Okay. – I’m gonna say one phrase
that he is known for, “Tune in, turn on and drop out.” Anyways–
– (chuckles) – he has a question, although
if this is his user picture, he doesn’t look like the
Timothy Leary I know. Anyways, Timothy Leary wanted to know: Can you please make a
video about the proper way to iron a dress shirt?
– (chuckles) – So Ash, I thought this was perfect, since you work with dress shirts all day everyday, for your job. – I do.
– So I want to import to the audience what you do
to make your clients look like literally the definition
of a million plus dollars, a billion dollars if we’re talkin’ about some of your clients.
– Like leading men. – Leading men of a
billion dollar franchise, this is what Ashley does
for the dress shirts. All right, and go. – Okay, so this is a really simple answer. You don’t iron a dress shirt. And I bet you there’s gonna be a lot of, a lotta people that are watching right now that are going to challenge me on this. – We’ll call them (dog barks) heads. – No, it’s just–
– Yeah, they are. – maybe you guys learned it
a certain way which is fine. However, this is the thing. I deal with just hundreds, thousands of dress shirts every day. I have to get my clients ready for their big red carpet premieres. – And they need to look perfect– – Yes, exactly.
– not kind of okay, not okay-ish. Perfect.
– Yes. – So let’s keep that in mind, fellas. – And so, the easiest,
fastest, most efficient and effective way is to use a steamer. (steamer hisses) So a steamer will. It’s just; it’s super quick to heat up. It will get all the wrinkles out. It’s way easier than an iron.
– Oh my God, yeah. – Because with an iron,
you could potentially burn the shirt, leave
the little marks on it. – I’ve done it.
– We’ve all done it. I’ve even done it. And I’m a professional. So it’s like you really
have to get the setting, the heat setting right, and know what your shirt is composed of. Because oftentimes, if it’s
not just 100% pure cotton, if it has blends in it,
you could really ruin your dress shirt, so–
– And it’s a pain in the frickin’ balls–
– Oh my gosh. – to iron.
– It takes so much longer. – Get the board out,
put the sleeve properly, make sure it’s laying flat, do it one way, flip it over, do it the other way. Do I want creases in the top of my sleeve? No, okay now, do the top of the sleeve. Oh my God.
– It’s a lot more labor intensive.
– For no reason. By the way, Ash is gonna list
her favorite portable steamer. You can get a stand-up
style if you really want. – Which I’ll include that as well in the article.
– If you’re doing a lotta steaming, obviously,
that’s the best way. But there’s a portable steamer that I personally use all the time too. She’s got a gazillion
of ’em, sitting around. That just works fantastic. We’ll link it in the–
(tone beeps) Whoop. We’ll link it in the description. But Ash, real briefly, give
them the quick, three steps about how to actually steam a shirt. – So what you wanna do. Take a dress shirt or
whatever shirt you want. Put it on a hanger. Hang it somewhere. Get your steamer. So with dress shirts,
I just like to button just the top button and
leave the rest undone. That way, I can get around
and really steam everything. So I always start with the front, and I slowly–
– Do you pull the bottom taut? – No, you don’t have to–
– Okay. – at all, not at all. Unless it’s like just kind of flimsy, and you wanna just be able
to get the entire shirt. But you don’t need to do that. And literally, you just take the steamer, and you just start from the top and go all the way down,
you know, relatively slowly. You don’t wanna go super fast,
but just relatively slowly. And you just kinda
cover each surface area. – Same as the sleeves–
– Same with the sleeves. – pull those out; do it on both sides. – It’s just so easy. There’s like. I mean, it takes–
– It’s really, really simple. – literally like 20 seconds
to steam a shirt. (chuckles) – Yep, all right fellas, hopefully, that answers your question. Guys, if you have other questions, leave them in the comments section below because that’s how they get answered, just like Mr. Timothy
Leary had his question. That’s how we do these. So guys, thumbs if you like this video, subs if you loved it. We’ll
see ya in the next one. – (in unison) Bye! (smooth electronic music)
