I recently bought a Brooks Bros non-iron slim fit button-down off ebay. When it arrived, it turned out to not be non-iron. At first I was a bit cheesed, but once I'd worn it, I was in love. The non-iron fabric is fine & functional, but it feels kinds flimsy, like the cotton has been cut w/ saran-wrap. This shirt as much nicer, textural feel to it, exactly the hefty kind of "hand" I want in an oxford (for knitted and woolen ties and tweed etc.). The fit, of course, is spot-on (box-pleat aside). I've been led to believe that BB's slim fits now only come in non-iron (because, presumably, those of us w/o tent-shaped torsoes can't be bothered to iron). Does anybody know where I can get more BB slim fits that ARE NOT non-iron?
