they dont look half bad for the price, and considering they go on sale alot, do you think these are an OK bet? i am particularly interested in the cotton stretch millitary shirt

They aren't bad for the price.

One of the better mall brand button ups, I like them more than J Crew anyway.

Fit is great, construction and materials are ok but nothing worth writing home about but fine for the price. Definitely worth it when you can pick them up for $20 each or so.

Maybe I'm the only one but I hate Express shirts with a passion (When I use to purchase them back then). Their quality is not something to look forward to. After the first wash be prepared to hate them.

they stink
after a year they will feel like the worst material you ever felt in your life

They're great if you never wash them. Color fades and material feels worn down after one or two washes.

solid for the price but must dry clean

They work for my needs especially the fit. I have too many shirts that look like dresses when they bunch up at my waist band. I dry clean them all the time, and I have a bout 4 different colors. I always buy them on sale.

For the $, I say they are serviceable.

The fit is good; nice and slim without being tight. The quality is okay, not good enough to warrant buying at full price though. If you sign up for a mailing list, you'll get coupons, sometimes $30 off $70 or so. I would wait for these deals to buy them; you can get them at about $18 a piece.

Only Express worth anything are the ones from the "Express Design Studio" line. Period. Everything else sucks as far as material goes. And I wouldn't want to spend anything more than $25 on anything at Express.

Fits pretty slim throughout................ except for the mother fucking arms.

I wouldn't pay retail for them but like others said, if you get them heavily discounted, I would use them for work.

For the price, I can't really complain. They do their job.

I don't wash them at home. I drop 'em off at the cleaners for laundry. They press and starch them for me as well. Good as new.

Although, when I do buy dress shirts at Express, I always have to take them to my seamstress to have them taken in. I prefer a slim fitting shirt, and even the "Slim Fit" shirts that Express sells are too loose for my taste. But that's just my personal preference.
