Dress Shirt Quality Rankings?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm new to the world of nice dress clothes, and I was wondering if anyone has compiled a rough estimate of dress shirt quality by brands or knows where I can find one. I think this would be really useful for newbies like me. For example, if I see an Eton and an Etro shirt on sale at the same price with similar designs, I don't know which one to go for at the present time.

 

Examples of name that would be on such a list (ideally) include: Eton, Etro, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Ike Behar, Loro Piana, Borrelli, Ralph Lauren, Corneliani, Armani, Charles Tyrwhitt, Brooks Brothers, Burberry, Zegna, Zegna Sport, etc.

 

Also there are a lot of Italian sounding designers that seem to be of cheap quality, so a brief list of which ones to avoid would also be helpful.

 

Thanks!!!

Should be able to find a lot of information about this using the shirt function.

Quickly in no particular order:

RLPL
Borrelli
Truzzi
Kiton
T&A
Emma Willis
Barba
Lorenzini
Finamore

All of which are great quality but a bit like comparing apples and oranges.

He means search function and there are threads on this, although IMO you should be focused first on what brands fit you best and then on price point vs quality.

There was a thread covering this topic a while ago. There are easily 15 - 20 shirt brands that stand up to meticulous scrutiny. Even some of the lower tier brands should not necessarily be discounted. A well fitted shirt looks amazing, whether lower tier or upper tier. Go to a department store and play around.

My local Saks is having amazing discounts, Kiton shirts for $110, Brioni for $70, Truzzi for $60, and a bunch of Eton shirts for $40. Check out your nearest Off Fifth, perhaps they are having crazy discounts.
