Non-Iron Pinpoint Button-Down Dress Shirt
No ironing, really!
I bought 2 shirts for my son for school, and then went back to buy 2 other ones. The shirt REALLY does not need to be ironed, and it is 100% of high quality cotton, a must for comfort. This is for a school uniform, and it looks perfect without ironing, in contrast to other brands, where ironing is necessary for the shirt to look sharp. Also, I am very grateful for the husky sizes being available at BB. Not easy to find in NYC...

Great update of an old favorite
I admit that I am a 51 year old woman who has returned to shopping in the boys' department. That's where I bought my shirts and blazers back in the late '70's and I decided to revisit the BB boys' department in desperation. I like to wear buttondowns. LLB and L'sE women XS's are too big. I'm very slight. I wanted the no-iron, but the L'sE boys are TREMENDOUS. As a teen I wore a size 14 in boys'. Now I find I'm a 12 - change in industry sizing not me! BB's size 12 fits great. It's MUCH slimmer than the shirts from L'sE. I could have fit 3 of me in their size 12. The quality of the material is terrific. The color choices great and with the 3 for pricing and waiting for a sale, the price is right. I haven't laundered one yet, so I can't tell you how they will hold up, but I suspect these will be my favorite shirts and I'll be back for more colors. If you're a slight female, or have a son to shop for, you should definitely give these shirts a try.

always get's ripped.
Althogh the appearance is nice. Still don't get fooled by appearances. After washing it comes out like new. However due to the neccesary treatment to the shirt it rips quit easily. About three of my son's shirts ripped in about three to six month of purchase.

Excellent dress shirt
Shirts look terrific look, last a long time. Since I line dry I have to iron them but it's easy to do b/c of the no iron fabric. Unfortunately the yellow and pink shades are too dark - just the wrong colors. I wish they made striped versions such as yellow/white, red/white, blue/white
