Agreed. I can vouch for CT shirts, although the ones that I have purchased in the past year seem to be of better quality than some of the older ones that I have, so some people might want to give them another chance. All of my shirts from CT have held up, but the newer ones seem to be of nicer fabric.
Also, for those who think the CT shirts are cut too big, try the fitted line. Since that line's been available, that's all I've been buying, and I love it. (Yes, the regular line can be very tent-like, similar to but not as bad as the Polo regular-fit dress shirts).
I know that I should probably try Jantzen, but I just don't have the time to screw around with it. With CT, I know the shirt fits, it's of decent quality, and I can easily browse their website and pick out things that will be on my doorstep in two weeks.
I also buy the Brooks Brothers fitted line - those shirts are far more questionable than the CT, but they're also cheaper, and I can get them even faster.
