    minus the ironing.
    1 week unless I am working outside, then just wash and wear.
    I don't iron BDUs, or starch them.

    1 week, unless they are dirty or smell. I typically febreez the butt of the pants, and the back of the top mid week.

    Mine are always ironed/pressed by me... :cool:

    I work the Panama schedule, and wear a new set every rotation. Always dry cleaned with heavy starch.

    You guys must get a lot of mileage out of those things, what with them never getting dirty and all... :mamoru:

    When i'm in the field (army) i don't wash them. When we get back in, the fuckers jump in the washer on their own.
