Shirt is a shirt
by A Customer from West Memphis AR USA

2nd purchase because it's so good
by MsTerry from  

Review: I bought these for my Airline Captain brother. I wish I could tell you how many nice things he said about this Commander shirt. He loves the fit, the style, the comfort, everything. He says this is the best shirt he ever wore. And he really likes the pockets open at the top, too.

Good Shirt.
by A Customer from Double Oak TX USA 

Cons: If you're a big fella, the shoulders and sleeves may be an issue.
Review: Fits OK - the shoulders are a bit snug and the sleeves openings aren't any too big, either. Looks good, we'll see how it lasts.

Nice Shirt
by SeaWolf from Key West 

Pros: Well made
Cons: Needs wing backing
Review: Nice shirt, could use a slight taper. I'm not little and I needed to use a military tuck, due to the excess material. Also I agree with the wing backing and make the pen hole smaller to make the rest of the pocket more useable

So far So Good
by Peter from Kissimmee FL USA 

Pros: Good value, Fairly good fabric quality
Cons: The collar is not lined like one of their competitors. Can be uncomfortable in the summer.
Review: I have only worn the shirt for a couple of days now, but overall I am happy with the product. This version of the Van Huesen shirt is of much better quality and fit of their cheaper model. The fabric is of a higher thread count which lessens the "see through" effect if worn without a t-shirt. The collar is standard and will become uncomfortable if worn on a hot and humid day with a tie. Oveall, I think is a good value and will give good wear over time.

Review Factory Size
by Eduardo from Jamaica NY USA 

Pros: Good quality
Cons: Inappropriate Size
Review: I'm been using Van Heusen Commader Shirt for more than 10 years, I love how the 15.5 neck fit on me and the quality of the shirt. This time the quality of the shirt was the same pretty good . But the size of the shirts (I bought 7) wasn't good, the neck size was like the double , and the shirt size was bigger , don like how it fit me this time (remember I've been using the same shirt for about 10 years) I don't know if is Factory errors or VAN Heusen begin making the shirts bigger. So I really don't think to continue buying Van Heusen commander shirts SIze SS 15.5

My go to shirt
by Andrew from Pittsburgh PA USA 

Pros: Large,relaxed fit if you need it, durable and budget friendly, open top pockets
Cons: Epaulet/shoulder bar holders too large, open top pockets are a personal preference, tails seem a bit short
Review: I've been using this shirt for nearly 10 years now and it's my favorite. I'm not a small person, so I enjoy the,uh, extra room in this shirt. If you're looking for a slim, tapered fit, this is not your shirt. It can be a bit billowy and it seems to be just a bit short, as it can un-tuck itself.

But,I've recently tried shirts from other suppliers and this is still my favorite. The neck gets a bit tight as it shrinks, but I have my shirts dry cleaned now, which seems to help.

No real complaints, I prefer the open-top pockets and my only complaint is the shoulder bar/epaulet "wings" are too large. If you're wondering whether the Commander is worth the premium over the lesser Van Heusen shirt, I believe it is. I have a few of the lesser shirts supplied by a previous employer and the Commander is worth the extra cost to me.

Only one complaint
by Robert from Hamburg NJ USA 

Review: I like the shirt, what I don't like is the stitch put in to the left pocket (supposedly to hold a pen). I want to remove it so I can put my American Legion name tag in it, but the stitch is not easy to remove without destroying the shirt. Suggestion...make it a simple stitch that can easily be removed if needed!

Half and Half
by Doug from  

Pros: Good quality
Cons: Short
Review: Good quality shirt and doesn't wrinkle that much at all. I did order a larger shirt, have a gut I'm trying to get rid of. Being that it was larger I assumed it would be a little longer than normal but that wasn't the case at all. So good shirt but the larger size isn't longer if that's what you're looking for. Would purchase again.

I would buy this product again
by A Customer from Arlington VA USA 

Pros: light, practical and comfortable.
Cons: loosely sewed buttons .
Review: The Van Heusen Commander shirt is an excellent shirt. Light to wear, very practical with the open top breast pockets. It is comfortable and large for its size, washes easily and hardly needs any ironing. On the downside, a few buttons came right off when I put it on for the first time and there are some loose threads in and around the breast pockets. On the other hand, the shirt has a good and a strong collar that keeps its form when washed. When dry cleaned, no starch is needed.

As expected this time, sometimes inconsistent
by Benjamin Davis from Philadelphia PA USA 

Pros: Crisp, clean appearance. Convenient open-top pockets.
Cons: Inconsistent and unpredictable quality.
Review:

For those who haven't had the V/H Commander shirts before, the fabric is a little like linen bed sheets: flat, smooth and crisp feeling, with minimal ironing needed. Some of their other shirts (like the Aviator) have a much different fabric feel; they tend to be much softer, with a bit of piling over time and a fuzzier, more linty feel.

The shirts I got from mypilotstore.com were exactly as expected this time. Sometimes the supply from the manufacturer is inconsistent, though. I've purchased a set of Commanders before that had clearly lower quality standards with buttons just barely sewn on/falling off, markedly thinner fabric, etc. They probably come from different factories with different standards. Unfortunately, there's no way to figure this out until you get them in the mail.

Overall, I will keep buying these. They fit me well.

Good shirt
by Ron from Anchorage AK USA 

Pros: Nice looking shirt
Cons: Made for fat people
Review: This product for everything else is perfect. You need to offer a tapered style. Yes, I lift weights and have a larger neck and need an 18.5" neck in my shirts but this shirt has approximately 10-12" of additional material for "thickness at the belly" .. Makes for a nice fitting shirt at the top and nery sloppy, loose and unkept look at the waistline. Due to that alone, this shirt looses 2 of the 5 points total.

This order of 5 shirts are unusable due to defective collar!!!
by George from Aiken SC USA 

Review: This order of 5 SS shirts were unusable. They looked normal in the packaging, but when I washed them, the collars became matted and un-ironable. I sent them to the dry cleaners, hoping they could fix them, but they came back the same. The collars contain something inside that causes a matting or extreme wrinkling. Much too bad to be worn in public. I have 2 shirts that I have'nt opened yet, but 3 of the 5 is unwearable. I have been buying these shirts for years, and have always been satisfied until this order.

Best For the Professional Look
by Robert from Lake City FL USA/ Port Harcourt Nigeria 

Pros: Crisp sharp appearance and open pockets
Cons: Warm and starchy feeling in heat
Review: I fly for a private airline in Nigeria.
When I'm away from the public I wear my Aviator shirt because it's lighter and a little more comfortable.
However, when I fly to the USA or know I'm travelling around the public, the Commander retains its crisp appearance and professional, non-wrinkled look.
Also, the open pockets make it easier to reach note pads and calculators.

Great looking shirts.
by paul from mountain home AR USA 

Pros: In very words, Nice shirts.
Cons: Haven't found any yet.
Review: These are great looking and fitting shirts. I have two organizations that I need to have a white short sleeve shirt and by their regulations the shirts need epaulets. These shirts are very wearable and with a vertical crease on each side over the breast they give you a very sharp appearance. So well pleased, I will probably order the same shirt in a long sleeve this week.

Not bad but the Aviator is better!
by Richard from UK 

Pros: Thick material, sun glasses slot in left pocket
Cons: Creases too easy and doesn't iron too good, strange pockets for pilot shirt
Review: Firstly I wear these shirts for as part of an airline uniform in the uk. Been wearing these things for quite a while so know a thing or two about shirts.

In a nut shell, just buy the Van Heusen Aviator shirts instead, yes they have a lower cotton content but the material will iron and look better, lasting all day rather than creasing straight away.

The Commander pockets are strange also, where as the Aviator are normal with pen holder slot still.

Again you want a pro's shirt, just buy the Aviator!

The quality has greatly deteriorated
by Rick from Charlotte NC USA 

Review: I have bought these same shirts in years past and they held up well. I recently purchased four shirts and within only a few months the collars have lost their shape, they show large areas of dimpling which indicates that the backing has separated and the collar seam on one has frayed because they sewed the seam too close to the edge of the fabric. I will not buy their products again because their construction is unsatisfactory.

Being to thin is not always good
by Kevin from Village of Lakewood IL USA 

Pros: Very nice looking, and very comfortable
Cons: shouldn't have got that pocket design
Review: The material is to thin, and the it doesn't hold starch very well, so they get wrinkled fairly quick after I put them on. My pants also slide down because, the material is so silk. The pen slots on the pockets are to big and it makes it hard to get my cross pens in.

Short Sleeve Commanders Shirts
by Bill from Medina OH USA 

Pros: Value, with good permanant press shirt for $16
Cons: The shirt loses life, needing replacement every 18 months or so.
Review: I enjoy the easy access into the shirt pockets, open for glasses and pens, trip sheets, etc. without unbuttoning flaps. The Commander pocket flaps are cosmetic, but not functional. Other models of Van Heusen shirts have the working flap to cover and protect items if needed. The shirt is a standard size so I didn't have to return shirts to get Size 16 either altered or returned. Good product for the price, and delivery was in a couple of days. Thanks for the timely service.

I would buy this product again
by Phillip from Burnsville MN USA 

Pros: Great fitting, durable, professional looking.
Cons: Fabric at the top of the pocket tears easily.
Review: These Van Heusen Commander Shirts are great! They are durable, easy to clean and need little ironing. There is only one area I have a concern about and that is the top pocket corners. Beause of the heavy use pilots' shirt pockets get, the top pocket corners of the main part of the shirt have a tendency to tear out easily. There isn't any reinforcement on the back side of the fabric where the top of the pocket is sewn in. Consequently, the shirt tears easily. I have repaired every shirt that my pilot son has because of this tearing issue.

Commander pilot shirt (van heusen)
by A Customer from MN 

Review: Sturdy shirt that requires an inordinate amount of collar scrubbing compared to the others I've worn. The epaulets are a bit too long; it makes the shirt look awkward.

by Jon from Jupiter FL USA 

Pros: nice collar, cool, irons well
Cons: too much material at the waist, eplets stand up too high
Review: I particularly like this shirt because it irons well has a substantial collar and is cool due to the higher level of cotton. The only problems I have with it is that the eplets are a bit longer than the distance to the button which makes them stand up a bit and the shirt needs a little bit of a taper to the waist.

Love wrinkle free
by Marc from Charlotte NC USA 

Pros: No ironing.
Cons: Fits too big.
Review: The wrinkle free material is wonderful and makes life on the road much easier. However, it fits like a tent. The draw back of Van Heusen has always been either fat or skinny with no in between. Makes this shirt for a normal sized man and they have my business for the rest of my career.

great shirt and great price
by david from Ocean Isle Beach NC USA 

Review: This shirt is used as our Marine Corps League Detachment 1005 in Shallotte NC. Great but I ordered two and did not try them on before sewing on uniform patches and they are too small. I will return one for exchange one size larger (16). Apparentlly, I have grown since enlisting in the USMC 40 years ago.

I might buy again
by Rob from New Smyrna Beach FL USA 

Pros: No pocket flaps
Cons: too heavy and hot, and not fitted
Review: The shirt is not fitted good like the Aviator and the color is really off white compared to the Aviator... I would buy Aviators if the pockets did not have those Damn flaps. That's only reason to buy the Commander, no flaps to contend with.

good old commander
by Marko from Rutherford NJ USA 

Review: Commander is great shirt I wear it with great pleasure. However it seems to me that tailoring used to be a bit tighter. For example I ordered now just a half number bigger shirt and collar is perfect fit but shirt is almost two numbers as wide....This should be considered when purchasing.

Excellent quality - stainproofing is a savior!
by Mark from Md USA 

Pros: Cotton/Poly blend percentages. Stainproofing.
Cons: Righthand pocket no longer has a pen pocket sewn in. As a lefty I miss my righthand pen pocket - my first set of COmmander shirts had it, but two subsequent sets have not had it.
Review: These are very high quality shirts. I have used the Aviator line of shirts for years as well as several other company shirts and the Commander is the best I've seen yet. It has enough cotton to iron & starch very well but still be pretty wrinkle resistant. In addition the fabric is treated with a stain repellent that has saved me numerous times. Once I spilled Crystal Lite on my shirt and it just beaded up. My hand was stained but the shirt was not. For those of us that have to each at the controls, spills/splashes are inevitable. Rain beads up on it too.

Excellent product with a few caveats.
by Robert from Oklahoma City OK USA 

Pros: Great fit, long-lasting, and I really like the open-top pocket style.
Cons: Some bubbling on the collar after just a few washings, the trim on the short sleeves needs to be tacked down more securely - I keep catching it on objects.
Review: Van Huesen Commander shirts are great - I like them with a few reservations.

Good Shirts
by RICHARD from MIAMI FL USA 

Pros: Phony flaps instead of real ones make pockets more usable for storage
Review: These are very good shirts but not 100% cotton. Since I fly in Florida I would love to finds shirts like this but 100% cotton and wrinkle free. This would make summer flying in non-air conditioned cockpits a bit more bearable.

Beware of new cut
by Ian the 1900 pilot from Peoria AZ USA 

Pros: Stain and wrinkle resistant
Cons: New cut is not as fitted

The Comander shirt
by Ronald from Mount Joy PA USA 

Pros: Thickness of the material.
Cons: Sleeves too short and don't like the cuff
Review: The sleeves are too short (makes the shirt look too small for me) and I don't particularly like the cuff on the sleeve. The cuff keeps rolling up and I'm constantly straightening them out. I guess I didn't realize they were cuffed before I bought them.

Why not all-cotton

Improved? Product
by Sleeper from Plymouth, MA 

Pros: Good quality
Cons: Stain Treatment
Review: I recently purchased two Commander pilot shirts. I've had a positive experience with Van Heusen pilot shirts in the past, so I had no reason to be concerned with this purchase. However, as I unwrapped them, I noticed they did not appear as white as older Van Heusens in my closet. Then, when I washed them, I noticed the water beading up on the shirt and when I ironed them the spray starch did the same.

I contacted Van Heusen and they confirmed that the shirts are now treated with a stain repellant and offered to replace them. Since all the shirts have the same treatment, replacement would not solve the problem. I'm just gong to wash the heck out of them and hope the treatment fades with time and I can get them white.
