    I've become a big fan of BB non-iron dress shirts and like the Milano fit. I'm looking for alternative brands that offer similar quality in the $60 price range since I only by the BBs on sale. What other options do I have?

    Try TM Lewin's Slim Fit shirts - multibuy pricing is around $160 for 4 shirts, and they sometimes have further discounts. Plus they offer free returns and exchanges. They are a good value.

    Thanks for the suggestion. How Does TML compare to BB in the non-iron category? In terms of quality, fit, durability, etc.

    I'm tempted to order a 4-pack.

    Personally I don't like non-iron shirts, but their normal cotton shirts are quite comparable in quality to a standard BB shirt (though maybe a little poorer in terms of quality control) .In terms of fit, the slim is a little less fitted than the milano, but the extra slim is even more fitted. The TML web site provides detailed measurements, so you can compare their fits to your favorite shirt.

    You can find them on ebay for under $60. The recently discontinued black fleece line has a similar fit and is near that price on clearance. Nordstrom trim fit and Neiman Marcus trim fit are both good quality for a reasonable price. Lands end 100% cotton slim fit shirts are another good option.

    Ok, So I was about to order a 4 pack of TML shirts until I realized I didn't see any pockets over the breast. Am I seeing this correctly? I'm not finding any business shirts on TML with breast pockets. Did I miss a memo or something?

    The English don't really do pockets.

    I definitely need a breast pocket on my business shirts. Any other good options in non-iron / wrinkle free other than BB (Milano fit)?
