Nordstrom Smartcare™ Traditional Fit Pinpoint Dress Shirt
Basic dress shirt
I have worn this model dress shirt for about three years. It has always fit well, retained its shape throughout the day, felt very comfortable, and survived the laundry. I heartily recommend it.
I purchase already during some years Nordstrom Smartcare dress shirts and have finally definitely to note that quality is decreasing. Already after 3-4 hours the shirt shows strong wrinkles, being a) far away of "wrinkle free" quality and b) of former shirt qualities (compared to a purchase of 2 and 1 year ago). Price stayed the same, quality decreased. I believe other companies will do this better. It is a shame, as I bought during the past years ONLY Nordstrom shirts.
I have been ordering the same five shirts from Nordstrom for years. I buy five in January every year and never had an issue. I ware each shirt once a week for the whole year, and them donate them to my kids' school for art class. I do have to give the shirt a quick press in the morning, but it just takes a few minutes and the shirts look great. I have saved loads of money at the laundry (at east $650 a year!).
Good shirt / wears out quickly
Fit and look of these shirts are good, and for the price definitely a solid product. I typically purchase 2-3 shirts every other month as I know they will not last beyond 6 months. I exclusively use the cleaners though, so I assume the cleaning is somewhat more harsh.
Overall a good product, but I would prefer they held up a bit longer. The collars, right at the neck, appear to fray first. With other shirts I experienced fraying at the cuffs long before the collar. Honestly, I would prefer these shirts wore out in the similar manner. The neck area is simply too visible.
