Supima® Pure Cotton Dobby Striped Shirt
The cotton has a lovely feel to it, very soft. The pattern is very subtle but effective and the contrasting fabric on the collars/cuffs are a nice touch. The sleeves are a little long, the cuffs could be a bit tighter and it could be a bit more 'fitted' but overall it's a lovely shirt.

Not truely tailored fit.
As this shirt didn't come in a slim fit, even though on the packet in-store it said other fits available online......not true in this case, I dropped down a collar size to obtain the desired fit as I have done with a previous purchase. This shirts cut still came up loose and baggy compared to a similar shirt in a different colour.

Take Care with Autograph Shirt Fittings
I was not aware of the differences between the different fittings for M&S mens' shirts.
This was explained to me at my local store yesterday.
The same shirt can be bought in regular, tailored or slim fit.
I did not notice when I ordered this shirt that it was a slim fit. The same shirt was also available in store in tailored fit.
The slim fit is too tight on me. I should have ordered tailored fit.
I shall more care if I order online again.

Why does it need to be washed as wool?
Bought this for my husband. Lovely feeling fabric and good looking shirt. But how come it needs to be washed as wool? I've just put it in the wash for the first time, in a gentle cycle, but I've no idea if I will remember to do so every time, so I'm anxious in case it shrinks if it's washed as cotton.

Very nice but.................
Smart, comfortable, stylish (though that's subjective) but a bit of a chore to iron. The material is one of those super-fine cottons that seem to hang-on doggedly to the "fresh from the pack" creases. Maybe after a couple of washes it will ease-up.
