Then don't buy 10 shirts. Buy three or four and continue living with the ones you've already got until you can afford more. You're just throwing money away.

Get which ever ones fit you better. I don't know Macys but the Jos A Bank shirts I've seen aren't even single-needle stitched. Maybe some of them are. At any rate, fit's more important.

Totally not the motto of the forum...have you checked out the thrift/discount bragging thread?!?! If you set aside an hour or two a week, I'm sure you can find some amazing shirts with little or no wear at your local Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc. Whatever reservations you have about thrift stores will change once you grab a new $200 shirt for $2. It'll look and feel a hundred times better than a $40 Jos A Bank shirt. Do your thrifting research and then hit up some stores.

So true. I find it difficult to even shop at retail stores now.

Now that I haven't though of. But being the noob that I am, how the hell am I supposed to tell what's good, from what's just garbage?

Read through the thrift store bragging thread. Its a pretty good guide of what to look for.

Use this link:

http://www.ctshirts.com/josh

Shirts are only $39.50 - add 2 of them to your cart. When you get to the checkout screen, enter 'thanks' into the promotion code box for an additional $20 off. Including shipping, 2 shirts will cost you less than $35 each. If $35 per shirt is still too expensive for you, then there is no hope.

Like this. Buy a few white and blue shirts to start. No one will even notice.

^ CT seems like a good start.

OP, as noted, if still out of your budget, hopeless indeed...

Just to add that the "thanks" code is expired, but "stca" works well and shaves $20 off the total.

Five shirts should be enough to start. Get a good fit, buy on sale if possible, keep them clean and ironed, and you'll look fine.

Too bad...nobody is going to have any decent suggestions less than that, unless you start thrifting.

Cool, thanks for the heads up on that code! I might be looking to get another couple shirts soon, so i'll have to make note of the new one.

Unless you go the thrift route, I'd suggest buying one of each of these brands, and seeing which one fits you better and seems of better material/construction when you have them in your hands. Then you will know which is "your" brand and which isn't.

Yes, five shirts will do you for the work-week, and you can launder them on the weekend. Maybe if you cut it down to five shirts, you can bump up your pricerange a bit to CT &c ... and if you don't you only have 5 cheap shirts to regret later if you get addicted here.
