Best Slim White Dress Shirt <$50? - Page 2

post #16 of 40

Hey regarding those Charles Tyrwhitt shirts,

 

I understand no one can predict the future,

 

but I was pretty jazzed by their 39.50 dress shirts.  So I ordered one to check out the fit.  It's gonna take till april for it to arrive.

 

Their website states the 39.50 shirt price runs until march 31.

 

What is everyone's experience with what their typical pricing is?  Can you usually snag shirts for 39.50 from their website or is this a one of a time, really crazy good deal sort of thing?

Pretty standard. Certainly not one-of-a-kind.

Calvin Klein slim fit shirts are pretty solid. I purchased one at TJ maxx for $15

Wow that is a great deal - just took advantage of it myself. The new easy-to-iron poplin shirts are great. I'd recommend those if you're looking for a great white shirt under $50.

I've got 9 of these as they are always on sale at the Bay. I have no idea if they're any good buy sartorial/SF standards though. I mostly where them with jeans on nights out.

For CT pricing, you can always do the 4 for $200, so $50 is standard (though you have to buy 4). However, there is almost always some sale for $40 each, no minimum. You just have to dig around for it. At one point, the Wall Street Journal had a $40/shirt coupon code. I'm not sure if that is a one-time thing or is always around.

I would say that $50 per shirt is fairly standard and you should never pay more than that. There are regularly shirts discounted to $40 or so, either for non-staple items on clearance or if you're buying one shirt at a time (maybe you can stack the $39.50 offer multiple times but guessing not). So $40's a bit better, but not something you have to jump on (if you do the 2 for $100, I highly recommend buying on the UK website as it will be 2 for 100 British Pounds 100 British Pounds is approximately $150 now). You have to add UK shipping which is in Pounds instead of Dollars, but you still save a decent amount. Exchange rates fluctuate, however, so I can't predict how long that pricing arbitrage will last. Definitely take advantage while it does.

Tried on some Charles Tyrwhitt Extra Slim, and the cut is still too big. Any ideas on even slimmer?

What's the issue exactly? Too big in the chest / shoulders or too big in the waist. If the shirt fits in the chest / shoulders, you can get some alterations done to make it fit in the waist. I find BB extra slim fit tighter in the chest but looser in the waist.

There are some slim fitting designer shirts, but those tend to be pricier and would not meet your cost target. If you're willing to spend more than $50 per shirt, I'd seriously consider doing MTM. If you do go for online MTM, make sure you check reviews and pick a place that will make you a test shirt and/or copy a shirt of yours that fits well with alterations you specify.

Too big in chest/shoulder and throughout the torso. Shirts that fit me so far are H&M dress shirts (size Medium) and Kenneth Cole Reaction (15.5; 34-35). Was wondering if there are any others that are similarly cut and sized.

Re: TM Lewin.

 

Their slimmest fit is still slimmer than both Brooks Brothers ESF and CT ESF. I own (or did own) the slimmest-fitting shirts from all 3 makers in 16/33. The BB was the roomiest fit, followed by CT. I couldn't even button the TM Lewin and had to return it.

I have the Extra Slim BB shirt in my measurements and it's slimmer than the slimmest T.M. Lewin. The BB is roomier than I'd like, but still looks good. The TM is so baggy that I simply don't understand how it could be their slimmest fit. Just my experience.

Are you talking about the TM Lewin Fully Fitted? For 16 neck anyway, the TM Lewin is slimmer than BB ESF and CT ESF. I know below 16, BB ESF start getting slimmer than the equivalent CT neck size, but I'd be surprised if they got so much slimmer that they were slimmer than TM Lewin.

I agree. I have their fully fitted bib front tuxedo shirt in a 16/35 and I can't fit into it. It's trimmer than anything I've seen from Brooks Brothers.

While I'm here - anyone want to buy it? Cheap. Tags are still attached. All I did was try it on.
