Bought several of these, but had to return them all. The button area and placket was horribly wrinkled in all 6 shirts, so the poor quality was not just a fluke. These would have been worn under a work uniform, and they STILL were not good enough to keep.
The other 6 from Outer Banks were wrinkle free, and clearly will wash and be beautiful out of the dryer. The Eddie Bauer shirts should have been marked as seconds, and further reduced. Frankly, I still would have returned them. But, at least would have thought twice before purchasing.

These should be marked "seconds" because the quality is quite poor and inconsistent. Returned 6 white ones, as all the plackets were totally wrinkled and looked like Cargo Pants they were so gathered. However, the colored one by the same manufacturer arrived fresh, flat, and beautiful, as a Polo shirt should appear. So, if you are looking for something where the neckline appears wrinkled and slept in but never straightened, this is the shirt for you. It is clear from other reviews that theirs did not look like this. Only a few unlucky patrons got the horrible looking ones....like I did. I also ordered 5 Outer Banks white Polos in the Pique fabric, and they are all perfect. Have never seen such poor quality control. If you look at the photo, but switch to a darker colored example, you will be able to view the problem. Other items also defective. Quality at STP seems to be compromised a great deal lately.
