Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.
This shirt is a winner – and this is coming from a complete skeptic when it comes to cotton no-iron shirts. In fact, even though it fit well, I initially bought just one to try it out. I wore it and washed it (delicates/cold cycle, for your reference) and hung it up. Then I sighed, as it had some wrinkles at that point. I figured I would at least have to iron the collar and the cuffs, which invariably happens with so-called no-iron shirts. But no – the next morning the shirt had no wrinkles, and the cuffs and collar had somehow stiffened up. I have no idea what the technology behind it is, but I am sold – I have already bought two more of those shirts and they have held up just as well so far. I also really like the fit, as it is fitted, but not overly so. I wore one of these shirts on an awful 90-degree-summer-hit-DC-way-too-early day, and the shirt was comfortable and still looked good at 8pm, despite not having been starched by the cleaners. Final note: this rave review for the fitted cotton no-iron shirt. I did not find the classic version to fit as well, and it had French cuffs, which require ironing to look good, no matter the material. The fitted version has very simple cuffs. $59 in a variety of colors at Banana Republic. Women: Fitted non-iron shirt – Light citrus
