My husband and sons are electricians in hot, humid Alabama. We looked for awhile before finding these 100% cotton workshirts, which is a must for their occupation and the climate. They are well-made (although, after receiving, I always have to go over each shirt and clip threads), embroider nicely, are comfortable to wear, and wash well (most stains come right out; some need pre-treatment), and only need light ironing. We recently replaced shirts that were 2 years old, and they were only slightly faded from the original color. My one complaint is that the collar looks droopy after a long, hot day. The company added permanent collar stays, which help some. Overall, they are great shirts, and I would recommend them.
