Good shirt, but a casual shirt,
This review is from: Dockers Men's Non-Iron Fitted End On End Button-Front Dress Shirt (Apparel)
If you don't know what "end on end" is, it is an alternation of light and dark colors to create a pattern. View this shirt magnified and you'll understand what it is. Primarily because of this pattern, I wouldn't recommend wearing this as a dress shirt with a tie and suit, unless it was a more casual atmosphere.
As for the non-iron bit, I gave up on this shirt and have it dry-cleaned. I am lazy but realistic, and no shirt is going to have the crispness of a dry-cleaned or ironed shirt out of the dryer (or off of the hanger).
That said this is a smart, good-looking shirt and I would buy it again with the expectation of ironing or dry cleaning it.

How does it fit? If you wear L for example does this one in L size fit small or large?

Hi Ronny - I wear a 16.5 34/35 and it fits pretty true, comparable to a better dress shirt. I've had experience with Dockers shirts that fit a little big, but that's not my experience with this one.
Most important to me is the sleeve length (because if it shrinks the shirt looks a little silly on me), and the shirt has kept its length despite being washed and dried.
I hope that helps!

Have you tried removing it from the dryer while still a bit damp, and then hanging it for a day or two?

Thanks! I may try that, although I am a horrible procrastinator so that was the original intention to choose this shirt over dry clean only options.

My suggestion does not involve dry cleaning. If your concern is with having to remove it from the dryer at a specific time, then you could just hang the shirt wet and let it air dry. You might need to iron the collar and cuffs, but that should be about it. It won't look as crisp as a freshly starched and ironed shirt, but it also shouldn't be wrinkled.
