Another mail out campaign received from Charles Tyrwhitt, another 3 shirts for $99 code. Enjoy!
Hi all, need a recommendation on non-iron shirts.
thanks. any code for 99 plus free delivery?
Enough shirts..Now I need 3 pairs pants for $99 or less.
+1 for Charles Tyrwhitt non-iron shirts. Provided the right process is followed to ensure the non-iron look, they are great.
grabbed 6 :) cheers!
Absolutely. I've had mine for 2 years and still haven't had to iron them. Trick is to use a good fabric softener (I use https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/172555/pur... ), hang them immediately after washing, and then once they're about half-dry, put them in the tumble drier.
That seems like more work than just ironing a shirt
Trust me, it's not. The amount of work put in is fairly minimal even if it is two extra steps compared to normal washing. Fabric softener isn't an extra step (you should be using it anyway to prolong the life of your clothes if you are an ozbargainer).
Wash —> Hang up (+/- iron)
No ironing method:
Wash —> Hang up —> Tumble dry —> hang up
Each hang up stage takes maybe 10-20 seconds per shirt
I hate ironing.
What is the right process?
As above mate.
Only area I differ is I tumble dry mine completely and then hang up straight away.
I never use fabric softener and sometimes wait a few days to hang them up. Mine normally last about 3 months or so before I have to start ironing (but are still easier to iron than regular shirts). Reckon the fabric softener makes much of a difference? I've always avoided it as I heard it damages the fabric. Or maybe it's just the hanging up straight away I need to get onto…
@bleeder: Yes it makes the fabric much easier to iron.
There's a common misconception that fabric softener in some way damages clothes. It actually prolongs their life by providing a lubricating layer between the individual fibres. Think about how many times a day the fibres rub against each other as you move around. If that were magnified so that each fibre was a large rope you would see them fraying. Fabric softener allows the fibres to move without friction so they fray less, prolonging garment life.
I remember finding a good video showing this from the American Textile Industry website.
The exception is towels and other clothes that need to absorb, rather than repel, water. Fabric softener reduces the amount of water a towel can hold.
@mingofmongo: Mind = Blown. I've been avoiding using it all these years. So you shouldn't use it on towels?
@bleeder: Theoretically it makes them less absorbent… But given how soft they feel I use it anyway. I use Cuddly Sensitive for towels, can usually pick it up half price at Woolies or Coles
No free delivery this time.
Yep… pretty good… but standard delivery is another ~$15.95
Great price. Thanks OP
Thanks OP. Works for the polos as well.
will hold off until the next free delivery around same price
Pretty disappointed by CT shirts. Still haven't found the appeal to wear any of the 3 that I purchased in the previous sale. They are heavy, and large although the size seems to fit me overall. The button down collar is about the size of my head.
On the contrast, I'm very happy with the TM Lewin shirts that I bought soon after. They are lighter than CT shirts and delicate, and they fit well. My use is for casual business attire.
Yeah I noticed with CT in large neck sizes only classic fits are available. I have a huge neck but not my whole torso.
With the TM Lewin shirts I bought for the first time recently, the best fit was a 48 neck with "fitted" fit. They do regular, slim, fitted and super fitted.
CT do Classic, Slim, Extra slim and Super slim fits but the tighter fits only seem to be available in the smaller neck sizes. Worried if i buy a 48 neck the rest of the shirt would be huge on me.
They offer different types of shirts. I'm loving my CT stuff, depending on style thru are soft and delicate or thick and more warm.
Does it fit well for Asians?
How do you decide your size and fit, especially if you are tucking it under a medium'ish tummy?
Never shopped for shirts online.
Thanks in advance
Measure yourself with the guide on the CT website. I then ordered several different sized shirts based on that measurement. Free exchange, so keep the ones that fit best and exchange the rest.
What is the difference between the T M Lewin Shirts and the Charles Tyrwhitt shirts? Similar? I am looking for shirts that are drip dry and don't need to be ironed. I use to wear Van Huesen but these are 40 % polysester now and I find they don't breathe.
So if I get some shirts and the for us not suitable. Do I have to pay for the return? As I see the returns are to an address on new south Wales.
is there a store to get yourself measured?
