Wrinkle-Free Microfiber Dress Shirt
Can't endorse this shirt.
The microfiber fabric is looks and feels cheap. I don't know a simpler way to state it. The fit is a little on the skimpy side. Not worth the price. I returned it.

We are still amazed at the quality of these shirts
I have bought my husband several more of these shirts. Some are three years old and the look as good as the newest ones. They wash like a charm: cold water, low dry, and they come out of the drier wrinkle-free. His barely ever wears his other short sleeve dress shirts. They were just too hot under his pharmacy smock, or his dress blazer, fot that matter.
I'd say that the Aqua and Rose are quite bright but very attractive. We match them to his ties and he had none that worked with the Rose. He has several that went with the Aqua so that we kept. The red is a beautiful rich red that goes with all kinds of colors - I think he has three of them. I'd love to see the shirt in a navy blue because he has all the other blues, more than one in some of them! It's so hard to find a dress navy blue shirt.
No one knows he isn't wearing a long-sleeved shirt under his long-sleeved smock. I have never understood why business dress code deemed that men had to wear long sleeved shirts to look professional, no matter the weather. We women can wear sleeveless dresses in the same situation and are acceptably dressed.
Thus, I've always searched for good looking, short sleeved dress shirts for him to wear under his pharmacy smocks and these are they are the best I've ever found. I've stopped looking as long as Norm Thompson continues to carry them! It would great if Leo Chevalier would add some new colors, especially a navy!

Great looking and fitting. Good value.
I ordered three of these shirts in red,blue, and black. They were delivered in a timely manner. The shirts themselves are very comfortable and hold their press in hot and humid weather. They wash very well and after two washings they've maintained their color and construction. I've been complimented on their appearance and will purchase them again. Now if you could only put a better quality zipper on your real suede jacket.

Not good value
This shirt was not at tall the same color as in the catalog. Also, it didn't have a good feel. Not what we expected

Perfect for travel
This shirt is the perfect travel companion because it can be handwashed, hung to dry and you are ready for the next "formal" night of your cruise. It's especially helpful if laundry services are limited or unavailable in other travel situations.

I needed a turquoise shirt for my daughter's wedding whose theme is turquoise. I bought a sport coat from NT with a tinge of it in it, and then found this shirt which matches wonderfully! My daughter will be so happy, so that makes me happy!! Thanks Normy (if I might call you that...)

A great dress shirt!
My husband is a pharmacist. Most pharmacists wear short-sleeved dress shirts under their rather wam long-sleeved white jackets. It's very hard to find a decent short-sleeved dress shirt since the fashion industry seems to think short-sleeved shirts can't be dressy.
The place we used to buy his shirts is going out of business and no longer has any short sleeved dress shirts left and I have been searching for a new vendor. I found a few but the prices were outrageous and the shirts didn't fit properly. And most of them had button-down collars and he looks much better in a pointed collar. We were both quite discouraged because so many of his shirts have worn out and need to be retired.
I was so happy when I came upon Norm Thompson's microfiber short-sleeved dress shirts! Unfortunately, some of the colors were sold out when I found them and he was not able to get the indigo blue, for example, in a large. But he now has four light blue and four red shirts and they fit him like a glove. He wears a 16 1/2" neck but wants some extra room in it. These supply that and his best ties look perfect with the collar style. The collars come down long enough to cover his ties in the back. The shirts don't fit him like blouses as some of the others I found did. Aside from looking nice on him, he is very comfortable in these shirts.
I hope Norm Thompson will continue to make these shirts. There are many pharmacists who wear short-sleeved dress shirts and many men in the medical field, who also wear white jackets, favor short-sleeved dress shirts. They don't take their jackets off at work although these shirts look super if my husband had to take his jacket off.
The shirts washed like a charm, came out with no wrinkles and I'm sure they will repel stains but he's not as likely to test that feature as I would be. He's neat; I'm the slob!
Thank you very, very much for having this style shirt and please continue to carry them, especially those without a button-down collar.

Best shirts ever
I was so happy to finally find a shirt that fits and doesn't look like it was two sizes too large! I had numerous comments about them from friends and decided this was the shirt I could wear and have confidence that I wouldn't have to worry about looking like Wimpy. Keep them in stock PLEASE!1
