Rated 4 out of 5 by NYCAstor Sizing mars otherwise great shirt
I'm a young professional and long-time purchaser of BB slim-fit, non-iron shirts. The quality and non-iron attributes made them my favorite for a number of a years. I no longer purchase these, however, because I will no longer accept the poor fit. In no uncertain terms, these (even the "slim") fit like a sail, and tailoring is expensive (and should be unnecessary) and ruins some of the structure of the shirt that provides it some of its "non-iron" attributes.
I no longer even recommend them except to my heavier friends or colleagues. The new "Extra Slim" offerings are not slim enough, nor are they equipped with high enough arm holes. Hopefully BB will begin serving its younger and/or healthier customers with much slimmer shirts (please note that I don't mean the ultra-tight, form-fitting shirts that are popular with the fashionistas, merely the well-fitted--with wide range of arm mobility--shirts that our grandfathers once took for granted) or we will go elsewhere.

As pointed out by many prior users, these shirts are far from slim. To the contrary, they are huge. I am 6'1", 230lb, and these shirts were very baggy on me.
Moreover, the shirts are too short. They pull out of my trousers.
Finally, the sleeve vents lack a button. This makes the shirt look cheap.
I sent mine back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sailaway great quality, but not slim
First the good: The material and construction are great. And the price is quite reasonable. However, the claim of "slim fit" is highly misleading. These shirts are not slim by any stretch of the imagination. I'm sure Brooks Brothers knows their target demographic and designs their shirts accordingly. But if you are even somewhat in shape, you might as well wear a tent. BB does have an "extra slim fit", which I suppose would be better. Unfortunately they are not available in non-iron. Actually, given the size of the slim fit, I have my doubts that even an extra-slim would work without additional tailoring. Interestingly, I have a Brooks Brothers suit that fits very well. BB, your quality is great. Now please make some ACTUAL slim fit shirts! In the meantime I'll have to stick with my other brands.

I've tried Others and haven't learned a lesson. The Brooks Slim Fit On Iron shirts are the best. Quality is outstanding. These shirts launder great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lunettes A good basic dress shirt.
This shirt is a good basic dress shirt to wear with a suit. It looks nice. It's comfortable. The non-iron feature is nice. There are two things I would change about this shirt. 1) The "slim-fit" isn't that slim. It still feels pretty loose to me. I tried on the ultra-slim-fit shirt, and that was like wearing a cotton tube. So I wish this one were a little slimmer. 2) There is no second button along the forearm to close the cuffs. The cuff closes solely with a button right on the barrel cuff, but there is nothing a few inches up on the forearm so the slit looks "too open."

Rated 1 out of 5 by AJ88 Too Short for 6'2" man
This shirt is well made and looks great. It is, however, too short for a 6'2" tall slender man. The shirttails are too short and pull out with just a little movement, creating a sloppy look. Also, the sleeve length runs short. Other brands fit well with 36" sleeve length, but this shirt looked a tad short in the sleeves.
I bought 3 and had to return all of them as they would not stay tucked and did not hit correctly at the wrist.
Brooks Brothers needs to create a line for tall men, or adapt their shirts to accommodate taller builds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bigmasa Good quality, but...
I have been buying brooks and bought a few extra last year. I found that they used to have two buttons in regular cuff which allows me to tight the wrist up if needed. but the ones I had last year only has one button. I don't like this chnage at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Downndr Indispensable miracle
While we celebrate the non-iron technology, let's admit that the shirts do look better when actually ironed. When you do iron them, they will look flawlessly crisp all day long - that's the miracle! It is to my mind the best slim fit shirt of its type on the market and I've tried many. The shirring always draws admiring glances.
