Shirt discussions are always lively
Â I guess it's a good thing, it means there are a lot of good places/brands out there that deserve recommending. I second most comments here. Thomas Pink shirts (and most shirts, generally, IMHO) are overpriced, even on eBay. They don't have the attention to detail or quality that "Jermyn St." used to connotate. However, they're not BAD shirts, and if you like the styling and fit, are certainly nothing to be ashamed of. I hope that doesn't sound defensive. I have a couple H&Ks, a couple Pinks, numerous Brooks Brothers non-irons to compensate for laziness, and several Tyrwhitts - I haven't been patient enough to use Jantzen yet, though I'm eager since, according to their customers here, they present the best value in the world
, far as shirts are concerned. Honestly, I'm pretty impressed with the Tyrwhitts at their sale price-point. I'd agree they're Pink-like, but they have nice details and I find them to be a solid step above mall or brooks brothers in style and quality. So, get em on sale, or search the forum (someone had a 50% off link back when). Also, Ben Silver's website occasionally marks down H&K shirts somewhat, and it's rare in the US to find them on sale. I've yet to take advantage, but I've never heard bad things about Ben Silver's service. It should be noted that I'm on a shoestring budget, so value/ease of care is a priority for me, along with fit/style. How many times can I type "value" in one day? Â
EDITED to remove the phrase "BS Service." Ha.
