It's about time to buy another couple of shirts and was wondering if anyone had come across a pilot shirt that is either Wrinkle Free or No Iron? I've seen a few that were Wrinkle-Free blend but not totally wrinkle free. Thanks for any tips.

The only thing that Wrinkle-free means is that they are easier to iron.

Just gag up the money for a good quality made in the USA shirt from Landerwood. And if you care you can iron it.

If you don't care, don't iron it...I don't care what you do just as long as you stow the backpack and ipod out of my sight!

Made in the USA doesn't necessarily means good quality...
Take a look at what Chevy's and Ford have become?

I like Crew Outfitters brand shirts. Not no-iron, but nice shirts.

Be a professional. Iron your shirt and pants every day. You're an airline pilot. Lets start dressing like one.

So when are they gonna start treating and paying us like one?

Just grab your shirt or pants, put then in the dryer for about 10 minutes on wrinkle release and bang!

Unless you want the nice stiff marks down the sleave. Then your gonna have to grab an iron.

Everyone knows the pay going in. It sucks, but it's a part of the industry and paying dues. To use that rational is wrong. We are to act/play the part because it's our job. Passengers are watching and we should make sure they have no doubt there are professionals flying their aircraft. Not a couple of spoiled immature punks who didn't get spanked when they were kids.

No way,the collars are horrible. You can tell who is wearing that quality 9.00 shirt, the collars are about 2 inches off the shirt.

act/play? When I come to work I don't Act or Play. I do the job that is outlined in my FOM/POH (no more and no Less). I would rather fly with a guy that has a wrinkled shirt and can land a plane in a 30kt crosswind then a guy that has a nice pressed shirt and is Acting/Playing the role of a professional pilot while trying to send me and my pax's into a ditch.

You took that quote out of context. How about "look the part." Is that better?

That is weird, I have never had that problem. Maybe I have old ones, or a different style...

Jeez guys chill out... I have searched for wrinkle free pilot shirts too (they don't exist by the way), not because I don't want to iron, but because they stay looking sharp longer throughout the day. I iron my shirt everyday, but it still looks pretty rough at the end of a long day. A nice pilot dress shirt equivalent to something like a Brooks Brothers wrinkle free would be nice.

By the way, here's the closest I was able to find, although I haven't ever ordered one. The shipping costs are a little prohibitive.

If you do a search on this site for pilot shirts, you will find a couple people who have had custom shirts made for them. I think if you really want to have a very nice pilot shirt made from wrinkle free cotton, then this would be the only way to go. In the meantime, I like the pilotshirts.com beefy oxford tapered shirt. It seems to hold its shape pretty well throughout the day, and it very easy to iron. They can get a little warm in the summer however...
