Pure Cotton Wing Collar Dinner Shirt
My husband is very pleased with the quality and look of this shirt. We wonder how long the black inserts in the buttons will last? He had another quality make of dress shirt with this sort of buttons. The black bits in the buttons started to fall out in the wash! Let's hope M&S prove better.

Slightly Odd Sizing
I regularly wear a dress shirt because of my job, so don't like to spend an awful lot of money on them as I get through them quite quickly.
General quality seems fair for the price but I found the shirt not suitable because if the fit.
I'm afraid I had to return this shirt as the collar seemed too big for the stated size. I usually wear a 16.5 collar on a dress shirt to give a little extra breathing space. This was a 16 (which is what I usually get at M&S for a run-of-the-mill shirt) but, surprisingly, it was actually too large in the collar. As a result, it puckered around the back of the neck when wearing a bow tie. However, a smaller size does not give enough material around the chest to allow for comfortable movement.
Also, I found that the front panelling seems a little short in length as it doesn't quite reach as far as the top of a cummerbund and this looks odd if the jacket has to be unbuttoned for any reason.
Therefore, a little disappointed in this product.

New Dress Shirt
This looks stylish fits well and good value for money

Bought this for my husband to replace a similar one of many years. He finds it quite adequate, but have to smile at the blurb for it, as I'm sure not many people are wearing their DJ and dinner shirt through the whole day! My only concern is that the "waffle" effect on the front is also on the collar and I suspect this will not wear well.
