Best White Dress Shrts for $80 or Less?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I need some white dress shirts for work. I would like to get them trim-fit. Any suggestions on good shirts for $80 or less?

TM Lewin. Not as well made as they were 25 years ago, but still very good bang for the buck. Their slim fit is very trim - more so than, say, Brooks Bros slim fit- and the tails are nice and long.

Just go by fit
almost all low -mid priced shirts are made by one of 2-3 huge companies in asia.

I've been very pleased with charles tyrwhitt. They have trim fit, non iron if you like it, spread collars, etc. For about $50 a shirt shipped or less.

At this price point, wouldn't online MTM be a better option?

depends. some online mtm shirts use crappy materials and getting the fit right can be a challenge.

I see no reason to go mtm

How does the fabric and construction quality compare to others (say to Brooks)?

about the same. Its not turnbull & asser, but they are durable, look pretty good, and wear comfortably. You can always pick one up, wear it for a bit and see how you like it.

As a poor man, I like Tyrwhitt shirts a lot, but I believe T.M. Lewin offers a better value. If you can live with non fused collars (which are a pain in the arse to iron and the only reason I usually get tyrwhitt's instead of lewin's) I think they are a better option.

I'm a big fat guy, and as such I usually wear Brooks Traditional fit. I don't see different fits on either of those websites. How do the fits of these shirts compare to BB traditional fit?

Can't tell you. The few BB shirts I've found around here are so expensive (around €120) I haven't even bothered trying them...

But I can tell you Tyrwhitt's slim fit is far from slim. It's actually quite a flattering fit for bigger guys; it works great for me and I'm not small (15" neck, 42" chest, 37" waist and 41" hips if this helps...) . Their slimmest is the "tailored fit" which has darts on it. They also have a "classic" fit which is fuller. Just measure yourself and check out their size charts here...

In this order they  become slimmer: Traditional is the fullest; Classic is average and can be worn by average grown men; Luxury is perhaps a bit slimmer; Slim has normal sized shoulders like the classic but the body is less full; X Slim belongs in the boy's dept. or for men with narrow shoulders or freaky bodies.

if you are a larger person, the slim fit at CT will probably fit you well. I wear the tailored fit, and find it to be pretty damn good. Little bit of extra material here and there but generally very good for OTR.

Though I've never worn it (so I don't know the fit), I did compliment a waiter once before on his shirt.. I guessed Brooks Brothers non-iron, turns out it was a Uniqlo non-iron. I'm sure it couldn't have been more than $100, if even close to that..
