No. I still have 150 for those wingtips. I'd rather spend 200 on several dress shirts than spend 200 on two RLBL/PLs or whatever. Even for me, I wouldn't spend over 40 on a dress shirt. I am sure RLPL dress shirts are much better, but I don't care as much for shirts for quality as much as I do for shoes.
Also, I got them at a thrift store. I don't plan to find something there. I go there to find any good deals I see. I think having a set item to find in a thrift store makes going there useless, because you're bound not to find it, unless you're vague enough.
