Rated 5 out of 5 by Navy4Life Fantastic Shirt -- LOVE it!
I first saw this shirt on someone very high-ranking in an overseas U.S. embassy, when two gentlemen and I complimented her on it (in pink) while we waited to board a flight. The shirt looked like it was freshly put on but she said she'd been wearing it for 12 hours at that point! She told where she got it and how much she loves it (she has 3), so I made a mental note to treat myself to one some day. Finally took the plunge and, although It was more that I would normally ever pay for a shirt, I could not be happier. They are gorgeous (I have blue and white). I honestly wore one right out of the box -- and it did not need ANY ironing. No kidding. The packaging is top-knotch, too. I paired the blue shirt with a taupe/brown suit and got compliments all day. My husband told me several times that, "there really is something about that shirt!" They will pay for themselves within one year with the money saved by not having to dry clean it. I think the tailoring would make it look great on the outside of slacks/skirt, too. I will buy a pink one now!

I used to love this particular shirt. I had two in each colour. Now my white ones are wearing out and I want to replace them but these are not pure cotton. The beauty of these shirts were that they were pure cotton and therefore comfortable to wear year round. The addition of the synthetic DOW XLA is not welcome. Until the non iron shirts return to pure cotton I will not be purchasing them. I do hope that Brooks Brothers considers going back to pure cotton or at least having the option. They were perfect without the stretch. I shop at Brooks Brothers for the classic style, quality, and natural fabrics which are hard to find nowadays. Please reconsider your decision to add artificial fabrics to many of your items. I eagerly await the next season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JavaJade classy option for real women
I have 2 of these shirts (blue and a blue stripe) and I'm sorry that I didn't discover them earlier! they're a nice substantial weight and always look crisp and neat. I'm very busty and this shirt accommodates well. All the other non-iron shirts I've ever purchased are now a waste. These are truly crisp when you pull them out of the dryer. It's better to buy one of these than 3 of another brand. The French cuffs are a lovely option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlairNY Great Button Down Shirt w/French cuff detail!!!
Finding a button down shirt that fits through the chest, but isn't billowing everywhere else is quite difficult for me. I have tried on numerous "non iron" button down shirts from other stores, in an effort to try to find a less expensive alternative. After going to store after store, and still struggling to find a non-iron button down shirt that fit as well as this one, I finally realized that nothing was going to fit me as well as this one does. Although they are expensive, they are definitely worth the money, and the best part is that they really do look great after you machine wash them as directed! You just have to be sure to take the shirts out right away and hang them! I especially love the french cuff detail on the sleeve of this shirt. It allows me to show off a bit of personal style in a work environment which is otherwise VERY conservative. Overall, a great shirt!

Saw this on an Oprah show where it (in white) was a must have in everyone's closet. Got it in pink - only color in my size at the store I visited. Now getting white & blue.
Get complements everytime I wear it.
