A Non-Recommendation

Or should that be an un-recommendation? I'm not sure. Either way, this is a review of something that I bought that I thought would be great, and it has not turned out to be that great after all.

I work as an Auditor, and am supposed to portray a professional image. Some days I do a better job of that than on other days . . . but on the days that I want to look somewhat professional, I wear a button-down shirt with khaki pants. I have two wrinkle-free shirts from Lands' End that are just awesome. They come out of the dryer looking like they've been pressed. Before Christmas, I saw an ad from Mark's Work Wearhouse for their Denver Hayes wrinkle-free shirts, and since I liked the colours and patterns available, I bought two.

It was a disappointing purchase. The shirts are very thin, so when I wear the solid pink one, people can see the pattern on my bra underneath (which doesn't look too professional, IMHO). They come out of the dryer still wrinkly, and they get very linty for some reason.

So, if you're in the market for wrinkle-free shirts, avoid Mark's Work Wearhouse and head to Lands' End. I know from past experience that Eddie Bauer wrinkle-free shirts are good too.

Thanks for the recommendation. Valerie keeps telling me how wonderful Lands End is too. Now that I have two recommendations I might have to check it out :)
