Proper way to press breeches

Post by Major von Kluge »

My Luftwaffe officers tricot breeches (made in China of polycotton material) crease easily and do not stay pressed. Anyone know the correct technique for pressing breeches?

They'd need to be pressed 'flat' rather than 'sideways' like normal trousers,( if you see what I mean )... you'd want to avoid going over the edge with the iron though as you won't want a crease at the edge of your breeches.
I've done 'old fashioned' riding breeches like this many times
