I'm not familiar with Ministry by Design. But the world is awash with non-iron, 100% cotton dress shirts. You might be better off buying them, rather than the polyester shirts with "temperature control technology" you mention.
Since you haven't indicated where you are, it's difficult to recommend a specific local retailer. Among online possibilities, there's always Brooks Brothers and Charles Tyrwhitt.
As for temperature control technology polyester shirts, they have their place. I'll wear one when I go running, for example. But you say you want a dress shirt.
I don't really care what brand so long as the shirt looks good (not like a shirt you can buy at wal-mart) and has the colors I want (navy blue, black, and white)
I'm not going to comment on black dress shirts. I just won't.
As for the shirt looking good, that's at least as much a function of proper fit, as it is of anything else.
Ideally, I'd like a shirt that I can wear with a suit or untucked with jeans.
Generally, a dress shirt will be too long to wear untucked without looking too long. No, not always. Sports shirts tend to run a little shorter.
Do you want a dress shirt, or a sport shirt?
