You may also want to explore different fabrics on these brands, One example is Sea Island or Egyptian cotton,
which can shimmer like the Nile river, giving a very regal and elegant look to your outfit.
The brands you listed to begin with are all good brands as well.
Welcome to Styleforum.
+ 1, damn dude you come out with top comments.
Kiton is a brand I really do like. But I would not consider purchasing their shirts on basis of price alone - very expensive and just how good do you want your shirts to be? I admit to being very tempted to buy them, but at $500+, shit man, that is a lot of money.
While their shirts are of excellent quality, the price is approx double that of Brioni, Borrelli, Charvet, or Ralph Lauren Purple/Black Label. I do not think the quality is double that of any brands mentioned by me or Man Of Lint. In fact, based on what I have seen in stores, I am almost certain the quality is about the same as all those labels mentioned so far. If Kiton is better, it is not by a landslide better thats for sure.
Shirts though - there is a threshold for me where it becomes hard to spot or differentiate between a very good shirt and an excellent one. Only on close inspection (metaphorically like a jeweler looking at a diamond through a loupe) could one tell a discernable difference between VS1 and VS2.
If you have the money, go ahead and get Kiton, they do make nice shirts full stop. If like me you look for value for money, go down Eton road - good shirts and they dont cause your wallet to disintegrate before your eyes.
