Glad I got two when they were two for $99

This has been in the works for a long time. The rising cost of raw materials, cotton was the main factor.

Doesn't "non-iron" mean "contains nasty chemicals that probably shrink your testes into cancerous lumps"?

Don't worry, folks, we can just start wearing all-cashmere.

I think those shirts are pretty much the only thing they have in stock and are shipping out... unless there are delays with them as well?

I wonder how long it will be before they are bought out by Sears Holdings Corp.

They've been having delays with them. I ordered a couple of dozen of them over Christmas, and they've been arriving in ones and twos. The last batch arrived last week.

I never do non-iron shirts. They make me sweat like a pig mainly because they add ammonia to straighten the cotton (notice the shine on the shirt).
It's better to be not-lazy (and iron your shirts) than sorry.

Laziness has always worked well for me.

Agreed. The non-iron are def worth it! It's not just about not ironing them but they don't get all creased by the end of the work day.

I wear them, and like the convenience they provide. However, after about three years they start to thread in odd places. Still worth it though, IMO.

I always find it funny that people care if their clothing gets wrinkled through use. Next people are going to want non wrinkle shoes.

After drinvg to work and getting up and down throughout the day, I would like to look presentable in a 4pm meeting. When i wear non non-iron shirt, by 4pm it's not a good look. Gotta have the confidence!
