Rated 2 out of 5 by cawright Not a "slim fit" shirt by any stretch
This is a beautiful shirt, but I had to return it. I'm 5'7" 150lbs with an athletic build. I bought the 15/32 slim fit and it looked like I had put on a circus tent. Hopefully I have better luck with the extra slim fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bw1128 Nice but needs some attention
I love the non iron approach but wished for a slim fit style, they were a little more slim fit. The shirts still seem to be a little too baggy around the side, this coming form one who is not too skinny. I also wished that there was a second button on the cuff and one in the middle becasue they seem to flare out.
Dont get me wrong, I love brooks brothers and will still buy from them, I just wished that they would take these comments to heart and fix them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmal The gold standard
If you're looking for a dress shirt without a pattern, look no further, this is the one for you.
If someone were only going to only own one dress shirt this shirt, in white, is the one to get. The fit is great, the quality is great, it's as opaque as you can hope for at this price point, and the Ainsley collar is the perfect between the stuffy point and the bold wide spread. And naturally the non-iron feature is a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by andorbln I've been buying this shirt for the last 15 years and I haven't been wearing any other shirt for work ever since. I have never found comparable quality for the price in Germany and I think it's the best value for money you can get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Davelli Great fit and construction, but needs better QC
I ordered this shirt in white. It was my first Brooks Brothers dress shirt, though I own several other clothing items from them.
I'm 5'8" with a very slim build, and this shirt fits very well. It's not quite as slim-fitting as some of my slim-fit dress shirts from other brands, but it drapes much better on my torso than those other shirts. It also doesn't blouse as much around the waist when tucked into trousers.
The Ainsley collar is a nice spread-collar design. I don't particularly care for point-collar designs, even with a tie. The Ainsley collar is stylish without being trendy.
The non-iron part is pretty decent. It is "non-iron" in the sense that once you take it out of the dryer, it will be presentable. However, if you're a stickler for wrinkles and/or ironing, then note that it's not totally wrinkle-free. Some of my other "non-iron" shirts from other brands truly are wrinkle fee when taken out of the dryer, like you literally pressed them. The Brooks Bros non-iron shirts don't seem to be quite that "non-iron".
My only complaint isn't really with the shirt, but with quality control. The shirt I received had a very obvious dimple in the fusing of the collar. It was very noticeable. I was able to iron it out, but it shouldn't have made it to me like that in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bohica These are excellent shirts that should be the staple of any man's wardrobe. I know they will always look good when I grab them from my closet. They have survived regular wear and washing without any signs of deterioration. I own this shirt in just about every color and collar style and I would definitely recommend to someone building a wardrobe or replacing the basics.

The slim fit is great. The traditional fit shirts swallowed me and the slim fit is the perfect cut.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Haberdasher Poor quality cotton.
I purchased some of these shirts in March 2012 and was very pleased with the quality. The ones I just received, however, feel as if they were made with a much lower quality cotton. The fabric is very rough compared to the ones I purchased last year. Plus, right out of the box, I've noticed snags in the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarkCoffee Excellent Fit
I have 5 of these shirts. The fabric is nice and in no way feels flimsy or cheap. The brooks brother pleating on the sleeve is unique and stylish. The spread of the collar is perfect, neither being to pointed nor so far spread that you look like a gentry attending a royal wedding in the UK. The shirt fits perfectly so long as you are an athletic/slim built male. If you are heavier or an extremely skinny male one of the other cuts will fit better (Traditional or extra-slim, respectively). Of the 5 shirts I have one came with a small flaw. On the inside of the cuff some of the stitching did not line up properly with the cuff and so the cuff was not sewn on the inside properly. This is something my wife or tailor can easily fix or with BBs fantastic return policy I could just swap it for another. Either way its not much of a problem, though admittedly a bit irritating because of the expense of the shirt. The other possible problem with this shirt is that being a non-iron shirt it can be a bit scratchy around the collar. If you don't like wearing a tie and things around your neck bother you I would recommend not buying non-iron shirts in general, as this is a typical issue. The black fleece shirts are likely better for you in that case. Overall a good looking, perfect fitting, well put together shirt. I would recommend for business professionals who wants to dress sharper than the typical guy sitting next to you wearing an ill fitting, thin, pointed collar shirt....you know the type!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boston2009 Great Shirt
I've purchased a BB suit before, but never their shirts. The quality of the shirt is unmatched to my other shirts (mainly JCrew and Banana) and it's a more tailored fit.
The slim fit should be renamed possibly. I'm not overweight, but I wouldn't call myself slim either. If I had ordered a standard fit, I don't think it would have fit me. I made a gamble on the slim fit knowing I'm within a few blocks of a retail store to exchange if need be.
The non-iron feature is great. Not because you don't need to iron them, but because the shirts maintain their clean, ironed look at the end of a long work day. I've not tried to wash, then not iron it to see what would happen, as I get my shirts professionally laundered, but I would think most people buying these shirts are doing the same.
I'd recommend these shirts to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paolok Button fell off after wearing once
The shirt looks and fits fine, but I think the one I purchased was shoddily made. One of the buttons splintered into pieces when I was taking it off after the first time wearing it. It appears to have been sewn on all right, just a cheap button. Now, it can be easily sewn back on, but considering the price of the shirt, the poor quality is surprising.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hankdog Good value
I bought this shirt for my son who is starting to interview for jobs...he originally thought he would need the athletic fit but found it to be very tight in the arm holes. So we re-ordered the regular fit and it was fine...a little big through the mid-section but fit nicely in the chest and shoulder area.

These shirts are amazing. There needs to be more sales to increase sales but the shirts are great. If only they these shirts came in different white patterns. Like white pinstripes or white checkers then these shirts could become a higher standard of dress for different occasions

Rated 4 out of 5 by icon The quality and styling of the shirts are first rate. I would prefer them to be slightly slimmer still as they are still a little bulky for someone with a 33" waist. As your super slim shirts are not as dressy as these models, they don't fill the need.

I have broad shoulders and don't like shirts with all the extra fabric on the sides so this shirt fits and looks great. Would like it if they had two buttons on the sleeve instead of one. Otherwise, great shirt.

All Non-Iron Brooks Brothers shirts are fantastic. They are extremely comfortable, the quality is better than almost all other brands. They also look perfectly pressed after they have been washed and dryed.

I wasn't sure what to expect with the non-iron but I liked it. It breathed just as well as cotton I felt and stayed crisp all day. Great quality shirt also. The cut, cloth, stitching, etc were all great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tallman Applauding Slim Fit Non-iron Shirts
Since I am tall and thin, I have a difficult time finding shirts that fit properly. When I was younger and could wear a 15 1/2 collar, it wasn't as much of problem, but now that I need a 16 1/2 collar, I find the body part of most shirts much too full. Hence, I was very pleased to find that this Brooks Brothers slim fit shirt fit much better. Hence, I applaud Brooks Brothers for making this line of slim fit non-iron shirts available, and I would encourage them to expand the line even further to include sport shirts. Actually, I could probably use an extra slim fit shirt, but this option doesn't seem to be available for any non-iron shirts.

Classic white shirt. I wish this stuff was still made in the US. Oh well. I'm not sure why there so expensive when they are manufactured for so little. Anyway it fits well and has a great feel when worn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BobRedbuick 2 shirt, sale label, different sleeves' size !!!!!
I was very dissappointed to receive 6 shirts from brooks brothers and find that the blue shirts had sleeves that were a full 4-6 inches shorter than the white shirts!!! I thought that i had made a mistake, but i compared all six to an older brooks brothers shirt puchased a few months ago and still, only the blue shirts are incorrect. Strangely they all are the same size, according to you. Very dissappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bradley Size conscious - try it on at a store.
Don't get me wrong, this is an awesome shirt. Nothing beats it in terms of classic style and ultimate versatility. I own many BB shirts, and these alone I must buy 1/2 size down in the neck and the sleeve because they tend to be a little on the blousy side (I'm referring to slim fit ones too by the way). My advice is to go to a store and try it on for fit. I enjoy a more snug fit with my shirt while others may enjoy the comfort and freedom of some extra material. Overall, high quality, great service and lasting design keep me coming back to BB year after year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WallD The shirt puts all others to shame.
Occasionally, within an industry there is a product that comes to market that is a true game changer. When the iPhone originally it changed the market so that we knew we were never going back to phones as the way they had been. While this type of thing happens a lot in technology it does happen that frequently in men's clothing. However, this shirt has done that and really you can't even consider a reason why you would buy any other shirt. The best part is that the game-changing innovation did not come at the expense of the quality that is BB's trademark.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RLinTO Easy to use, but need more selection
These shirts are great for eveyday use. Completely avoid ironing which is great when you don't have the time to iron shirts for the whole week. Only complaint would be selection of colours is a bit too traditional. Should ramp up the colour selections, to stay up to date with current colour trends. Everyone needs the traditional white and blue, but would be nice to have other colours like purples, pink etc... Also, would like to see other materials like coton twills in the non iron slim fit.

*****What better way to highlight your athletic-toned torso in a professional business environment than by wearing this slim fit pinpoint spread-collar shirt!
*****It looks tastefully good, giving the wearer clean, neat lines and it will impress your business associates and clients with its classic simplicity.
*****The spread collor provides a good horizontal break for those of us with long oval faces, and it looks exceptionally good with a large-knotted tie such as a full windsor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ripken08 Good shirt although thought non-iron would be more
Great service. The store in Annapolis had two shirts in stock and the sales associate ordered another on-line for me. The shirt was delivered the next day. Fantastic!
I bought 3 non-iron dress shirsts, which look and fell great; however, I thought the non-iron would be more crisp. The main reason for purchasing the shirts was the idea of a no-iron dress shirt, and despite taking the shrts immdeiately from the dryer the shirts do not look as good as I had expected.

I looked several places for a pink, non-button-down collar shirt for my son. My husband suggested I call Brooks Brothers, which I did. The person who answered the phone was extremely helpful. When I arrived several hours later, the shirt was wrapped and ready for me to pick up. The shirt fit him as if it had been custom-made, and my son was dressed perfectly for the Main Line wedding he attended. Next time, I will think of Brooks Brothers first.

Purchased a new suit for my son and had old ones fitted, at the Falls store in Miami. Best product selection, best customer service at the store and in the fitting department, very patient with our requests and change of shipping instructions, and the merchandise arrived today in perfect condition, clean, pressed, and ready to use, and ahead of time, and the alterations were incredibly accurate and well done. It's always a pleasure going there.
