    Question What adj for this person?

    Hi,
    I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me the right adjective to describe a person who always dresses up in ironed clothes. Of course that's what we all do, but I mean the extreme form. I'm not sure if Hercule Poirot would be the perfect example, but something like what he did! I want the focus of the adjective to be on the ironed clothes.



    Thanks a lot.

    'Dapper' and 'natty' spring to mind.

    I can't think of anything else at the moment.

    I can't think of a single-word adjective that particularly suggests the "ironed" effect. Clothing like that is often called "well-pressed" or "well-ironed" and I can imagine someone being described as "always having a well-pressed (well-ironed) look". The style of Poirot could be called "dapper" or "natty". The term "spick-and-span" also describes a very neat, clean and tidy look, well groomed rather than necessarily trendy and one would expect the shirt to be crisply ironed.
