Non-iron shirts? Anyone?

Hi,

Wondering if somebody has some good recommendations on non-iron dress shirt manufactures. Where do you get yours from? I wear slim fit.
I'm done with ironing shirts on the weekly to has to be non-iron.

Cheers.

Costco. Kirkland Signature brand shirts are good. The selection changes every few months. Sizing can vary but you can return them if they don't fit.

They also usually have at least another brand of dress shirt available. They have Calvin Klein slim fit (maybe modern fit?) ones available for $24 now.

Re - Ironing

Ya it sucks. But it still makes a difference a fresh pressed dress shirt, if you have to wear one

Have you thought of just sending your shirts out to the dry cleaners for laundry & pressing ?

I did that for many years. Lot less hassle. And a lot of Drycleaners compete on this service with pricing, using it as a loss leader to hopefully access your other dry cleaning needs

Have you ever tried using a garment steamer? It doesn't suck like ironing does. However, you do need a good steamer, though, such as a $300 Jiffy, and not one of those $100 Conair, etc., PoS.

Whatever you do choose, my suggestion would be to dry them in the dryer separately (or at least in a light load), take them out of the dryer as soon as their done, don't pile any other clothes on them and hang them up as soon as you can.

What's a good price for something like this? I checked with my drycleaner a week ago and they told me 3.95 wash + press. Considering it as I hear not all non-iron shirts are actually "non-iron" i.e. they'll look considerably better if you still iron/steam them.

Yeah, it works, like ironing works, but if you've used a quality steamer, you would know why I wouldn't recommend a lousy steamer to someone who hates to iron.

Surprised no one has suggested Brooks Brothers.
Yes but their prices have slowly increased and quality seem to have steadily going down... I wouldn't buy any unless it's the black friday sale.

RW & CO, you can definitely find good deals when they have XX% off clearance. I've bought some non-iron dress shirts, fitted fit, slim fits, tailored fits for less than $20.
