Thanks in advance.
$145 is a decent price for a chambray shirt. Taylor Stitch also does a good one. There are lower priced alternatives at places like J Crew, and Brooks Brothers which are about the same quality, as well. But unless you are going high end or budget, in the "moderate" prices you are working at, the important thing is to find a shirt that will fit you well, both for your specific physique and for your tastes - some of the shirts will be more "preppy", and others, more "workwear".
