If you are interested in shirts that you can just hang to dry after washing, our current collection is not what you are seeking. If your primary concern is how they wrinkle, although our current collection have not been treated chemically to produce the non-iron effect, they hold up pretty well during a days work. Hope that helps.
    I can attest to that, mine stayed fine with a simple steam out of the box for an entire day.

      One of the many advantages of crafting our fabrics from scratch is that we can construct each fabric to achieve the same wrinkle-resistant effect regardless of style. When purchasing fabric from a mill you are limited to the construction they have selected for the particular style that you like.

        Does Twillory own and operate its own power looms?

          While for many decades we used to own and operate our own looms, we found it more efficient and cost effective to contract directly with the weavers. We purchase the yarns, contract the weavers, and then contract the finishing plant. Doing things this way keeps the cost of fabric at less than half of Albini, Monti etc.

            I too received a shirt, and I also thought my feedback was to be sent directly to [MENTION=3047]Jake101[/MENTION].

            In a nutshell, my impression was cautious optimism. I compared a white sea island twill Twillory shirt side by side with a sky CT twill shirt. Fit was practically the same, design details were similar, Twillory wins in every category, which is to be expected, considering the actual price they can be had for is somewhat higher.

            My only concern was the finishing quality. There was a sewing pin still in the collar of my shirt. The stitching just seemed sloppy compared to CT. Possibly it was just a bad batch, or maybe I'm overly critical.

            At any rate, they still compare favorably against CT; they're a bit more expensive, but you're getting a tangible improvement in material quality.

              [MENTION=7370]roostertail[/MENTION] - That was the idea! We don't mind that [MENTION=12061]Jshackleford[/MENTION] posted his thoughts, but it wasn't our intention, we just wanted to hear what a few different people thought. Thanks for agreeing to check it out!

                  [MENTION=12061]Jshackleford[/MENTION] - I'll take responsibility for that. I guess I could've been more clear - but no harm no foul, right? Enjoy the shirt!

                    Now that I have a job where I need to wear a dress shirt most every day, I feel I have a better perspective and should update my thoughts.

                    The Twillory shirt is definitely very nice quality but it is a tad bit tight around the neck and back/chest area for me. I'm placing an order today for size 16 neck instead of the usual 15.5 I wear. I'm hoping the bigger neck size will also add a bit to the chest area. At this point, my favorite dress shirts are the J Crew Ludlow Traveler shirts (the regular J Crew dress shirts are a bit hit and miss since some of them wrinkle up like linen) and the Twillory shirt. The Twillory shirt is more fitted/tailored than the Ludlow shirts and I feel the fabric is a bit higher quality as well. I also like the smaller touches they add such as the metal collar stay and mother of pearl buttons.

                      Neither Ledbury or Twillory offer 36-37" arm lengths with a 15.5"neck. This makes me sad.
