A Corby pant press is an indispensable grooming aid for anyone
who finds crumpled, wrinkled pants an eyesore. Featured in
many of the best hotels in Europe, the top-selling “Made
in England” Corby press extends the life of your pants
by reducing the wear and tear of industrial pressing, and
not creating a surface shine on your pants, as so often happens
with repeated ironing. The primary benefit of the press is
that it removes the unsightly creases that start to happen
the minute you bend your knees to sit in a car, bus, train
or office seat.
The Corby press is designed to refresh the
original crease (as put in by a dry cleaner or a regular iron)
and to ease out “back of knee” wrinkles. By the
end of the day, your pants look like they have been through
an accordian. It provides the convenience and ease-of-use
to just go home after work, place the pants in the press,
turn on the timer and walk away. When you return, the pants
are sharply pressed and ready to be worn again.
Simply raise the side levers, slip your pants between the
pressing plate (with its unique stretcher bar that ensures
a more taut insertion) and the cushioned heating pad, close
the press, turn the dial for up to 45 minutes of heating (depending
on model type) and walk away. The thermostatically-controlled
heating pad warms up and gently presses out wrinkles and baggy
knees without scorching or burning as it eases your trousers
back into that sharp, just-pressed look. When finished, it
automatically turns off while your freshly-pressed pants cool
down ready for you to wear – without the added cost
and bother of getting them professionally pressed.
Please see How to Operate for
a visual description.
Handy extras include a tray for loose change
or keys and a contoured jacket hanger that airs your jacket
before you return it to your wardrobe – so the press
also doubles as a Valet Stand.
Your Corby is safe to use on any material which you would
normally iron, however, you should check for any special instructions
Even if you only press one pair of pants per week at $5/pair
per visit (an average individual working full time will normally
cycle three pairs per week) you will spend at least $250/year
on pressing. That’s $1000 over five years…for
ONE pair of pants! To say nothing of the time wasted back
and forth to the cleaners.
A Corby pant press operates for years and
costs just a few cents per pressing.
Quick and as easy to use as placing your pants on a hanger,
you will save literally weeks of time over the years. Think
how much time it regularly takes to drive back and forth from
the dry-cleaner, wait for the pressing, and wait…and
wait. Plus, the stress of remembering to pick up the pants,
driving in traffic, etc.
No. The pant press was not designed for these items.
Depending on how creased your pants are – and how much
time you have – you may run the press for anywhere from
30 to 45 minutes depending on model type. The results improve
if the pants are left in the press to cool down rather than
being removed immediately. With more significant, long-set
creases you may need to put the pants through a second press.
No. The press applies consistent heat regardless of the length
of the chosen timer setting. Most people insert their pants
when they get home from work or at night before bed, select
the highest setting and remove their sharply-pressed pants
the next morning.
The press heats to around 60° c / 140° f, regardless
of model type. The thermostatically-controlled heating element
virtually eliminates the possibility of pant scorching so
you can rest easy knowing your pants are in good care.
No. The press is also a valet stand, so most people put their
pants in the press at the end of the day, start the timer
and retire for the night. The press shuts off automatically
so there is no danger of over-heating. Once placed in the
press, the pants are ready to go at the twist of a dial or
touch of a button (depending on your model). In fact, if the
power goes out you can even leave the pants in there overnight
and without turning it on, get a press from the compression
of the plate with the pad alone!
31.9 inches. This applies to all models.
No, it doesn’t need to. The majority of pant creasing
occurs on the bottom two-thirds of pant legs, particularly
around the back of the knee. The Corby is perfect for removing
Yes. You would first start by pressing
the upper part of the pant (below the pocket) and then proceed
to press the pants normally. Please see How
To Operate for an illustration.
Years of reliable, quality pressing
is in store for you with the purchase of a Corby press. The
press is designed to refresh the original crease (as put in
by a dry cleaner or a regular iron) and to ease out “back
of knee” wrinkles. You should not expect the press to
create original hard crease lines down the front and back
lines of your pants. Regular clothing maintenance requires
most pants still be taken for professional dry-cleaning.
All Corby pant presses are made in
England and hand assembled to meet the most exacting quality
and technical standards. Your new Corby Pant Press comes with
a one year warranty that is honoured by WorldWide Ventures
on behalf of John Corby of England, who have specialized in
making pant presses since the 1930’s.
In the unlikely event your Corby needs repair or technical
attention, just call us at 416-968-9311 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get your press fixed up in no time. The
majority of problems can be cleared up quickly by sending

always be serviced at our Toronto warehouse for a fast, economical
The inside of the front panel may be wiped with a dry cloth,
but no polish or cleaner should be used on the inner front
panel or heating pad surface.

requires the purchase of a special bracket from your retailer.
