I suspect CT doesn't overdo it with their non-iron treatment. You usually still have to iron the shirts and they can develop some micro-creasing similar to some must-iron shirts, but the difference is they still look very good at the end of the day.

I don't know where to put this, but I have asked about Tyrwhitt's suits and have received some additional measurements. Hope they'll be of use to somebody.

 


Black Label suit jacket (discontinued):

Size: 40; 42

Shoulders: ???; 48.7 cm
Chest: 54 cm; 56.5 cm
Waist: 49.5 cm; 52 cm
Trousers thigh (-2.5 cm from crouch): 35.2 cm (x2 for circumference)

Classic Fit suit jacket:

Size: 40; 42

Shoulders: ???; 48.4 cm
Chest: 55 cm; 57.5 cm
Waist: 51.5 cm; 54 cm
Trousers thigh (-2.5 cm from crouch): 36.7 cm (x2 for circumference)

Tailored Fit suit jacket:

Size: 40; 42

Shoulders: ???; 48.7 cm
Chest: 54 cm; 56.5 cm
Waist: 49.5 cm; 52cm
Trousers thigh (-2.5 cm from crouch): 35.2 cm (x2 for circumference)

 

Totally agree with you. Just received 4 non iron shirts and I'm totally disappointed. 3 shirts probably were made from cheaper fabric.

I compared these shirts to non iron shirts from previous orders and there is feeling that shirts are different (fabric seems to be thinner than usually and I don't like it).

Yes, still need to iron a little bit, agree with the above.

Everything on the right side of the hook is Charles Tyrwhitt.

I suppose I'm a CT Fanboy. I wanted to reply to this thread in hopes that it may help others.

Shirts: I've noticed that their shirts have changed at some point over the last 3 years. My more recent poplin weave shirts are much easier to iron. I personally prefer the herringbone weave because of it's durability but it's not the best for hot climates (like here in Texas)

Modern luxury: I've ultimately been impressed with the 5-7 Luxury shirts from them. With that said, I wouldn't pay more than $15-20 extra for them above the normal CT shirts.

Ties: their ties are good but not great. I've noticed their recent line of ties has a thicker padding. That helps with durability but it makes the tie much stiffer as well. I personally like it, but others may not.

Cuff links: one of my favorite things from CT oddly enough. They're solid piece design, ct signed, and well built. I have three pairs and each set is commonly worn.

Suits: while I only have experience with one of their suits it slightly exceeded my expectations. As most know CT tends to focus of details other companies don't. Surgeon cuffs, corozo buttons, etc. The place is certainly lacks is the fabric (to be expected). Ultimately, the one I own has been a great addition to my weekly rotation but I consider it "different" rather than better/worse compared to other suits in it's price range.

Price: as most know, ct shirts has adopted the jos a. Bank model: everything is always conveniently on sale. Many people like the $50 shirt/tie combo or the occasional $30 shirt plus shipping deals. I personally buy the $100 credits (living social, rue la la, etc) and pay between $35-50. Many think the credit isn't worth it, but the key is to wait until 1-2 weeks before it expires. Usually a deal will come available that makes it more than worth it.

I own around 35 ct shirts at the moment and have given 15 or so to Goodwill over the past 3 years. I like them because their customer service has always been excellent, they're fairly current with their styles and I can't find any shirt for under $50 that fits me as well as a 17/35 extra slim fit.

As far as price points, I'm a cheap a** so take it with a grain of salt.

Shirts: most of my shirts cost me around $30 after shipping. Anything under $40 is worth it. I've gotten them as cheap as $18/shirt (end of last year).
Cuff links: $20-25 shipped is an average price. Not many deals beyond that.
Suits: not many deals but I paid $165 for my blue pinstripe s100 suit from them (jacket $135, pants $115, and two $100 credits I had bought for $45 and $50 respectively).
Ties: I just bought five of them which ran me $70 (again using a $100 credit)


I hope this helps. I haven't tried their shoes yet, but I have seen them in several of their Manhattan stores. They seemed to fall somewhere in between J&M and Allen Edmonds but closer to JM.

Re: CT's non-iron fabric. As with every non-iron shirt I've tried, I find my one CT such shirt hot. In fall, winter and early spring this usually doesn't bother me too much, but on hot summer days I hate it. Even in winter I notice that they don't breathe, but being too hot isn't as problematic then. For this reason I try never to buy non-iron fabrics. Tha one CT I do have I got because I really wanted that pattern and style shirt, and it was only available in non-iron. Plus, I thought I'd test CT's non-iron just to see how it was. The problem is not unique to CT, so I don't blame them.

Hey guys. Have been reading this forum for some time now and just joined. I wanted to say thanks! Thanks to this thread, I came across Charles Tyrwhitt shirts and today went out and bought a lot of them with the 4/200 discount. These shirts are great, fit me perfectly, and make a great base for any wardrobe.

So I am looking to get a white medium spread collar shirt to go with my Ralph Black Anthony Suit.

I really liked the fit and look of the Black Label Bond Shirt shown below but I only might wear a white shirt 2 times a year at most and $350 seems too much. It might be a great shirt but every white shirt i have owned has gotten a stain on it plus biggrin.gif plus all the groomsman need to get the same shirt and can't spend that much.

The 15.5 fit awesome everywhere except the neck was slightly too tight and the 16 was a little big. Neck around 15.75.
Would need to have gotten tailored on top of it.


With that being said I think I want to get shirts from Charles Thrwhitt for around $40 each.

Some of the shirts at Charles Tyrwhitt looks nice but I am a little confused on the sizing of Extra Slim and Slim.

What would be the closed to that Ralph Shirt? The waist on that show 31-34" while the Extra Slim in CW shows 39".

Also which of the CW shirts has just a Solid color with no pattern? Twill Weave, Regency Weave, Poplin weave?

I am about 197lbs, 40" chest and 34.5 sleeve and 33 wais
