Is there a big difference between the two? Is it less important if I always have my shirts professionally cleaned? Specifically Charles Tyrwhitt shirts. Thank you gentleman.
I think it's pretty obvious that it's less important in that case. In other words: if you're going to get your shirts professionally cleaned (and pressed), the advantage of a non-iron shirt is largely eliminated. The purpose of the fabric, as suggested by its name, is that you can launder it without ironing. If you're going to iron it anyway, that's not an advantage.Is it less important if I always have my shirts professionally cleaned?
The singular suggests either (i) that there's only one gentleman present or (ii) you're only expecting one answer. I won't speculate as to which was intended.Thank you gentleman.
There are many laundry/dry cleaners who will not accept non-iron shirts for their laundry.

The biggest selling point to Non Iron shirts is that they retain their crisp look longer - so at the end of the day, you dont look like a bag of wrinkles. I dont know anyone the wears non iron shirts in a professional environment who doesn't press them after laundering them.
I wear non-iron (BB) exclusively during the week for work. I always wear a cotton undershirt, and the "breathability" issue has never bothered me. I work exclusively indoors, in an air-conditioned environment, and it simply isn't an issue. I'm a little old school, and was a long time adherent of traditional BB shirting (I actually enjoy ironing - find it relaxing), but IMO there's no question that, at the end of the day, non-irons continue to look good, whereas traditional shirts are pretty wrinkly. I have BB traditional finish shirts for my formal (black tie) shirts, but even here, if they offer a non-iron alternative, I may take the bait. I also have several CT non-irons, and IMO they're a little more variable in their non-iron finishes. Some I need to touch up a bit more than others. But all in all, I like them.
IS THERE AN ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM ? i HAVE TO THROW THE SHIRTS AWAY BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS LOOK SOILED. BOBI find that the non-iron shirts tend to gather more sweat stains on the collar and cuffs. I always send my shirts to the local cleaners for washing and ironing (can't beat the $1 price) and after a while, the non-iron shirts never really get clean well.
None of the non non-iron shirts ever have any sweat stain issues
