I wear dress shirts everyday for work and I go through them pretty quickly between dry cleaning and washing. I love the quality of this shirt. It stays wrinkle-free and fits perfectly. It's breathable and stretchable, so it's easy to move around. Happy with the purchase!

Excellent fit and stretch! I bought the red and the light blue ones and they look nicer in real life. The fabric really feels comfortable and the subtle style looks good in any occassion. Just as it says in the description, this dress shirt stays wrinkle-free. I recommend this to anyone who has no time to iron their clothes.

Good fit and quality material! As someone with a slim build, it's always a struggle to find a dress shirt that fits and doesn't look baggy around the waist. This shirt fits perfectly. Bought the one that is a size smaller than mine and I wasn't disappointed with the purchase. It gives a nice stretch and breathability. Definitely planning to buy more in different colors!
The Surge of Popularity of Wrinkle-free Shirts
In 1953, wrinkle-free shirts were first introduced by Brooks Brothers, an apparel brand in New York City. The brand popularized the wash-and-wear shirts that were made from a combination of polyester, Dacron, and cotton.
However, it has been known that the anti-wrinkle properties of the shirts came from a chemical derivatives that release formaldehyde. When asked about it, Guy Voglino, vice president brand manager at Brooks Brothers, stated, "Proprietary formula is used, one that meets global safety standards for both those involved in the production of them and for those actually wearing them."
The Science Behind “Greener” Wrinkle-resistant Cotton Fabric
The formaldehyde-based process called cross-linking are still commonly used by manufacturers to create wrinkle-resistant fabric. The process raised concern as it involves chemical agents that are hazardous to human health and to the environment.
Ruth Benerito, a multi-awarded American chemist with remarkable contributions to the textile industries, invented the the wrinkle-free, "easy care" cotton fabric. Benerito and her team of researchers from the USDA Southern Regional Research Laboratories in New Orleans began the research in 1958. They veered away from the traditional chemical combination the manufacturers are using to create wrinkle-free cotton without the brittle.
Benerito used acid-chlorides as reagents and created a new method of crosslinking cellulose chains in cotton. This approach spread throughout the textile industry and was later incorporated into the process of manufacturing stain, flame, and wrinkle-resistant cotton fabrics.
Yiqi Yang, a textile chemical engineer and emeritus professor at the University of Georgia, Athens, and his collegues also developed a cross-linking method that doesn't require formaldehyde. The team of researchers tested several different chemical combinations and came up with the best results to create wrinkle-resistant cotton clothing.
Cross linking citric acid with xylitol produces anti-wrinkle properties without the discoloration. In addition, these carboxylic acid cross-linkers are made of environmentally friendly, renewable raw materials. These formaldehyde-free linkers developed by Yang and his team were patented by the Southern Regional Research Center.

“With non-iron dress shirts, you can simply take them out of the dryer, place them in your closet, and have them ready to go in the morning.This not only saves you time from ironing but also cuts a heap off your dry-cleaning bill.” - an excerpt from an article published on the men’s grooming and style website called TOOLS OF MEN
Why the Stretch Anti-wrinkle shirt is worth purchasing, according to Timmy Robinson (US)
I'm a corporate slave who lives alone. So I barely had enough time (or energy) to get my laundry obligations done, much less iron clothes on a daily basis. I was browsing online and came across this anti-wrinkle dress shirt, so I bought it since I also need new ones for office wear. Wearing this feels soft and comfortable. The shirt also gives a nice fit.
I heard that garments treated with wrinkle resistant properties tend to shrink after several uses. But this great business shirt didn't. It's been a month since I bought it and I've worn and washed it several times but the fabric still looks and feels good as new.
This anti-wrinkle shirt had me completely sold. I’ve had it in my wardrobe for over two months now and the quality and the elasticity of the fabric looks exactly the same the first time I got it. This shirt is true to its claims. Saves both the time and the hassle of ironing and looks good in any occasion. Will definitely buy again in different colors.
