Brooks Brothers shirts last forever. No longer is one limited to their full cut size--which is truly a full cut! Their no iron, slim fit shirts come in many attractive collars, styles, and colors. Most stores, I assume, have a deal "if you buy three shirts.." All in all, a good shirt for the money.
I have not purchased a Lands End shirt in years, but I think that they make a good basic shirt.
I like BB, especially their slim-fit shirts.
I was rather pleased with my Land's end custom fit shirt (really, just a very basic computer MTM program). It came out pretty well, given that it only cost $62 plus shipping. And I liked their 80's pinpoint fabric - at the least, it seems nicer than the BB non-iron fabrics. I'll probably order a pink one soon. My only "complaint" is (and I knew this going in) the apparent lack of flexibility with some of the styling choices - I would like to get a taller collar, but it doesn't appear to be one of the customization elements.
