'Search' I would suggest - you will learn more than by hoping people will repeat what they have already written.

if i didn't want your opinion I would not have asked....

I am a custom shirtmaker based in NYC. that makes shirts in the USA.
the shirt that comes out of the brooks factory in Garland NC is OK.
not fantastic.
I think the program is somewhat limited in terms of customization.
the regular price is no real bargain.
I know some guys who buy them at sales or use coupons, etc.
at that point, prices are a bit better.

they make non-iron MTM shirts in the same factory that is used by many other companies that produce in Asia.

I am not a fan of the quality of that shirt.
but , you can get a non-iron mtm shiirt

My company offers a number of non-iron shirt fabrics. They are my personal favorites of the 250 shirt fabrics I have to offer. But, if that's what you want, I can help you.
