Yes, these 2 stores are offering 140-180's cotton. My question is whether these have been tried by forum members and how is the experience including laundering and ironing?

M&S 170's cotton shirt is at £40. Pink's much more costly.

The best fabric for shirts is a 120 2 ply.

!40 2 ply is sea island quality, but it is too soft for some people. It isn't a good fabric for a shirt you are going to wear to work. 170 and 180 shirts are just too thin. For work, think 80 or 100, 2 ply. For evening wear 120 2 ply is good. Sea Island cotton is good for the evening if you don't wear them too often. Anything else is a waste of money.

A good quality 100s cotton is much better than a junky 170s like Tyrwhitt or Pink would use.

A good quality 170s or 180s is nice, but you're not going to get it from Pink or M&S.

Do not waste your money on Pink. I would not trust a shirt, let alone 170's cotton, to be honest I would not trust most shirtmakers with 170's cotton.

170's is not your once a week shirt, even though is has a nice soft feel. 140's is nice, but I would only purchase a 140's shirt if I planed to wear it once a month.

If you want a fancy shirt, get yourself a quality 120's and again, I would avoid most companies mentioned.
