Twillory Releases New Dress Shirts for the Non-Iron Man

non-iron dress shirt
Ironing is no fun. If you’re like most fellas, you probably don’t like to be anywhere near an iron. Irons are hot, they’re kind of hard to use, and ironing takes time away from other important activities, such as chopping down trees and taking shots of whiskey.

There is such a thing as non-iron clothes, but they come with a price: they’re treated with formaldehyde. Yikes! Isn’t that one of the main ingredients in embalming fluid? Sure, sometimes you can feel like a dead man walking when you’re at work, but c’mon, formaldehyde?

That’s where the heroes at Twillory come in. No, Twillory is not the name of a magical realm in a children’s fantasy novel, but rather a new direct-to-consumer menswear startup. Founded in 2014, Twillory has already made quite a splash in the world of menswear, and they’ve just changed the game again thanks to their new non-iron dress shirts.


Last week Twillory announced the release of a revolutionary new type of chemical treatment for dress shirts, which they’re calling “SafeCotton.” SafeCotton doesn’t have any of the harmful effects of formaldehyde. What are those harmful effects, you ask? According to a report from the United States Government Accountability Office, formaldehyde in textiles can cause rashes, skin irritation, headaches, and has even been linked to lung cancer.

Twillory has been working to patent SafeCotton for the past two years, and it’s finally available for purchase. It’s the first and only formaldehyde-free non-iron dress shirt on the market, and you can get two for just $99. Color and pattern options include sky-blue window pane, blue gingham, blue twill, and white twill.

If you’re looking for something to do with your old dress shirts, you might check out Twillory’s Re:Purpose program. In partnership with a vocational charity called CareerGear, Twillory accepts donations of used menswear and gives it to the homeless, unemployed, and disaster victims in this country and abroad.

West Major’s Crafted Shirts Are the Latest Chapter in the Story of Western Wear
west major brand feature 0

Led Zeppelin, Jerry Garcia, and Pink Floyd. The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. A strolling George Harrison across the cover of The Beatles' Abbey Road. All these men, these bands, may be iconic to classic rock, but they have another thing in common: They were fans of and wore the classic Western shirt. It wasn't just rock; folk, blues, and many other genres' luminaries, over the course of a decade from the mid-'60s to the mid-'70s, were photographed wearing the classic American style. “If you go down all the genres of music," Nick Wetta, founder of West Major and maker of the best damn Western shirts in the world, tells The Manual, "you’ll find guys wearing Western shirts.”

Wetta, 31, is not a cowboy. Far from it — he's a self-described nerd who grew up in Arizona with no natural athleticism, but a passion for drum fills. His heroes were musicians, not horsemen, and to match their look, he'd pick through the racks of thrift-store pearl-snap shirts trying to find the perfect silhouette. "The fits were all over the place, and a lot for them were old and falling apart," he says. "But when I would find one that fit right, it was a grand slam.” Economy was only one reason for his secondhand sources; another was that those old shirts in photos were neither made nor marketed anymore; instead, the modern iteration, with its blousey fit and boring plaids, was geared toward Midwestern farmers. “And that is awesome," he says. "[But] it felt like there weren’t any Western brands for guys like me.”
