"I went looking for some non-iron dress shirts to take with me on business trips last weekend without any success Do high-quality shirts exist that don't need touching up to wear properly after several cramped hours in a suitcase?"
No-iron shirts are an abomination. Buy a folder from Eagle Creek and stack your folded shirts in it, then put the folder in your suitcase. They'll be fine.

"I recently purchased several pairs of trousers with buttons sewn to the inside of the waist to accommodate braces. Could you recommend what to look for in a pair of quality braces?"
You need only know the name Albert Thurston. Thurston makes what are most likely the best braces in the world. Wear the barathea for summer (like the ones in the photo) and the boxcloth for winter.
