Brooks Brothers 346?
Styleforum Top Picks
I picked up two 346 shirts to try, and they do not see the light of day after I tried one for a day.
not the best quality...I have 2-3 shirts for beater wear...look for 1818 luxury line items as they have a few once in while...you may even get lucky with some Black/Golden Fleece...BB has their semi-annual sale going on right now. you may find some items that you need at discounted prices...
I live about 15 minutes from an outlet mall with a Brooks Brothers factory store. It's yielded some casual and dress shirts. Their casual madras shirts were nothing special (hardly anybody's are), while the 346 dress shirts (slim fit non-iron stretch, 96% cotton) seem fine for light use and are lightweight, which helps in our sweltering climate. Nordstrom's store-brand and Charles Tyrwhitt shirts seem a bit heavier.
I've picked up an 1818 unlined Fitzgerald linen jacket and, tonight, a 346 stretch wool (97% wool, 3% Lycra) gray suit for $192. It should be more than adequate for occasional social occasions and is probably at least as good as anything in the price range at Penney or Macy's. Think of the outlet as competition for Stafford, Ferrer, or Claiborne.
