Joseph & Feiss White Slim Fit Dress Shirt
An acceptable buy
This is one of the better non-iron dress shirts available on the market for consumers who want a reasonably low price for reasonably good quality in my opinion. It has a chest pocket and a back-pleat which are features I consider to be both aesthetic and functional.
There are, however, two things about this shirt I find a bit weird and hence the 3-star rating. First of all, the collar is somewhat bigger than you might expect. For example, if you buy size X, then the collar will actually be X+0.25 inches. (As a small guy, I need the collar to be, at the very least, true to size, not bigger.) The second thing is the silhouette. Sure, it's slim fit, but something like "Slightly Extra Slim Fit" would be a more accurate term because, well, that's how it is around my body. Would appreciate just a teensy bit of extra space.
On the other hand, the sleeve length and width are what I expect for slim fit and I'm sufficiently satisfied in this regard.
As long as you're an average guy who looks good in slim fit, then chances are you'll find this shirt to fit passably. But if you're a bit leaner, even a bit better for you.
(Just remember to wash and dry this shirt at least two times to get it to shrink fully.)
