I've just forced DS to try on all his shirts and they're waaaay too small. I am not friends with the iron so what's the consensus out there for shirts which come in sizes 16y + and will happily come out of the dryer with just a bit of smoothing out?

Can you buy poly-cotton men's workshirts?

(and teach DS to iron his own shirts?)

DS 2 was 6'2 at aged 15. I went on eBay and found companies selling M&S men's shirts at discount prices. Presumably seconds but they were fine. Didn't iron them if using the tumble dryer, which was most of the time as it was the school's winter uniform. They had polo shirts in summer.

He's about the same size now (about to turn 19) and still has a couple of the shirts, although he only uses them for events like weddings and other formal occasions.

My DS has some from M&S that are age 16 that fit him fine and also some that I think were 16" collar but he says are too big. As he's only 14, he may yet grow into them! They were all in the school uniform dept IIRC.

Oh and we don't iron anything school shirtssmile
