Rated 5 out of 5 by Counsellor Retiring, Finally
Today I am buying a new edition of this shirt; I finally retired my previous fitted, white, non-iron BB shirt when it literally fell apart. I bought the shirt at least 8 years ago and have worn it through cities, airports, law firms, day-to-evening events, country weekends, and international trips, through friendships and relationships and heartbreaks and jury awards. This might be the best and most useful piece of clothing I have ever owned. I don't know if the new version will stand up, but I'm about to find out. p.s. for the last 4 years, I've worn it with the sleeves rolled up, because I had my maiden-name initials monogrammed on the barrel cuff. p.p.s. in most clothing, now that i've had a baby, i wear a size 10 on the top and 12 on the bottom; however, because these shirts are not too long (nor too short), a size 8 still fits nicely, even in the "fitted." I think the "classic", which I also own, is a bit too bulky --feels like I'm wearing my husband's shirt. Doubt I could wear the tailored version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 59shopper Great shirt- once you figure out your size and fit
I am not usually a BB shopper because most of the styles offered don't match my own style, but I had heard the non-iron shirts were great. I agree and now own multiples of this shirt in white and in black. Unlike other so-called no-iron shirts I have tried, this one truly is low care. I wash it in a front loading machine on normal warm for the white and normal cold for the black, dry on medium-low until just barely damp, then hang to finish drying. I love the fact that multiple fits and many sizes within each fit are offered. I could not figure out my size and the appropriate fit for me based on the size chart and descriptions, so I went into a physical store and tried on several combinations until I found the one that worked best. I ended up with a (much) smaller size and a closer fit than I would have chosen based on the online information. Once I had that figured out I could order online and count on consistency. Good fabric quality and nice workmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peanu2t Great Purchase
I have purchase the Non-Iron Tailored Fit Thin Stripe Dress Shirt with DOW XLA and the Tailored "Lilac" shirt in a size 2. The shirts are really great, but I decided to make additonal purchased in the "Fitted" and have purchased 4 Non-Iron Fitted Stretch Shirt with DOW XLA in Black, Blue, Pink and White all in size 2. I personally prefer the feel and fit of the "Fitted" shirts instead of the Tailored.
However, as I stated both are really great shirts but if you want a true fit with a little ease of the extra room, I would suggest buying the fitted.
During the past week I have purchased 6 more shirts all Non_Iron from Brooks Brothers. The shirts are well worth the price if you are looking for quality professional shirts. They are wrinkle free although I do iron mines to maintain the crisp look as shown in the pictures online. I haven't been disappointed with my purchase yet.
I wished Brooks Brothers offered this shirt in the "Pale Banana" color like the 3/4 sleeve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mamma Where are the TALL sizes??
I know this is not exactly the right forum for this, but since it's the only one I've got, I'm using it.
I love this shirt & recently bought several no-iron shirts of various styles. Since BB doesn't offer TALL sizes, I went with the 14 (and even a couple 16s) to see if they'd work.
The 14s were wonderful EXCEPT they were too short; the 16s were too big & exactly the same length as the 14s.
The length was even more of a problem since there is about 6 inches between the last button & the hem. Horrible, if you're all torso like me.
PLEASE ADD TALL SIZES (and more NON-pastel colors).

have at last found THE white shirt--lovely fabric, pure white, perfectly sized and proportioned. I wish BB made the same shirt /same exact proportions--just in a much longer length (e.g. classic men's shirt or 'boyfriend' ) to wear with jeans or leggings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole A+ Quality and Look; B Fit
I own a banquet facility and purchased this shirt for all my staff. Absolutely beautiful and classic look. Perfect for those that don't want to (a) pay for dry cleaning and (b) don't want to iron. Every time the shirt comes out of the dryer, it looks perfectly pressed.
The shirts do run a bit small. If you are a size 10, I would buy a size 12 -- especially if you are busty.
This is the only shirt I would purchase for myself and the staff that represents my business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by buckeyecynthia no iron fitted stretch shirt
I bought two of these, one white and one blue and love, love, love both of them. They fit and look just great. The cost is more than I would usually pay for a shirt but they are well worth it and will last for years and look terrific as well because of the classic style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by classicstyle Love the shirt ~ do not love the length
I am 5' 5" and absolutely love the crispness of this shirt as well as the tailored fit.
The shirt length is too short however and if you prefer to wear a lower waist pair of suit pants--they do not stay tucked in. I like the more contemporary pant--even though it is not "teeny bopper" low cut and would really appreciate Brooks Brothers making the shirt 1 1/2 inches longer .
