Rated 1 out of 5 by tpgdc Collar problems
I've had two of these -- and the same problem with each. They're fine if you take them to the dry cleaner, but the collar tips turn brown if you put them through the home laundry. I threw away the first one when this happened, then bought another a few months later. And now I'm having exactly the same problem again. They're fine shirts, but they're unwearable once the collar tips turn brown -- and there seems to be no way to get the brown out. Very happy with other Brooks Brothers products, but this one is a real disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CCubed Great in White-colored shirts fade at collar & tip
Pro-these shirts fit. I am 5' 9" and now weigh 195--down from 270 (deliberate diet). I have a barrel chest-now 44" down from 50", a 42" waist (down from 54"), a 16" neck (down from 18") and a 33" sleeve (down from 34"). At my heaviest, a Traditional fit 18 1/2" by 34" fit perfectly. Now a 16" x 33" fits perfectly again. The salesman at the BB store in my city, who's been selling me shirts for years, advised I stick with traditional fit since my chest is still a big barrel chest, although smaller than before.
I have several of these traditional-fit collars in white and various colors (primarily light blue), They fit well, and I especially like the sleeve lengths in increments of one inch. (When my arms become adjustable to 34-35, or 33-32;
THEN I may briefly think about the shirts you can get from virtually ever other manufacturers!).
The only issue I have is with the colored shirts (I get mainly light blue). The bend of the collar seems to wear out and I am left with a frayed band of white right around the junction of my neck and the collar.
Also, the colored shirts fray at the points of the color, leaving them white-tipped.
But they fit! Which is far more than I can say for any other brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SS18 No other shirt like it!
The greatest advantage of this shirt is the no iron feature. I have been using these shirts for years an am disappointed only in one thing: the no iron process/treatment somehow affects the edges (cuffs & collar) causing them to wear out relatively quickly. So, for their price, they are not sufficiently durable, but for me the no iron feature is more important.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DavidG This is a broad cloth point collar white shirt. In the tradition of BB, it is generously cut, a very good thing. But it is a light weight broadcloth. If you buy this shirt, be prepared to wear an undershirt or your skin tone will appear through the portions of the shirt that aren't double layered such as cuffs, seams, button band and collar. It is comfortable, but not the heavier, opaque material that I remember being a BB classic.

Great value for your money. I'm a big barrel chested guy and these shirts fit beautifully. Comfortable but not bulky with enough room in the neck. I'm a big guy who doesn't want a sloppy look, these shirts fit and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FinalPythagoras Best Dress Shirt I have seen in recent times....
Finding really nice dress shirts that have limited wrinkle potential is very difficult to find. I have been shopping at a notable men's shop that tends to run sales for many years, however their quality has gone down. I have never been a Brooks Brothers customer, however I am extremely happy with these shirts. It is my first dress shirt purchase at Brooks Brothers. The price is comparable, but the quality and stitching is the best I have seen in a while. I washed them and they came out wonderful, with zero shrinkage in the shirts. I ordered them in an emergency, as I have a trip to Korea on Saturday, and their customer service was the best! They checked my delivery and made sure the warehouse knew of my concerns. I will try other clothing when I'm in need again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasBornTexasProud High quality dress shirt.
I have been wearing this dress shirt for 7 years. It is the highest quality shirt, beautiful fabric with the non-iron feature. I am able to wear it all day, make flights in it and arrive for a business meeting confidant that it will look freshly pressed. I get all of my shirts monogrammed, and they always turn out very professional. All of Brooks Brothers non-iron shirts are great. They offer a great selection of colors and styles.
