Getting back to the topic at hand I own a bunch of Express shirts, but not as a testament to their quality more so because they are easily found really cheap. Brian you should check out dicount stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Gabriel Brothers if there are any around in your area. These stores usually carry a good selection of Express for dollars. Example: Gabe's sells their Express shirts for $9, and I've found their suit jackets there once in a while for only $16. As to quality it appears that Express are improving slightly. They have dress shirts now with two button collars, plus have a Seven line (no idea if it is connected to Seven for all Mankind) with MOP buttons. Though I will warn you that their stretch shirts get kind of funky after a couple of washings, yet I don't feel them worthwhile enough to send to the drycleaners. I usually hang dry them after washing which seems to prolong them for a while. All in all they have soom great striped shirts at times, I would just try to find them elsewhere or wait till they go on sale. Ps. You can also find some really good steals at discount stores, better than Express, like Ted Baker (great patterned fabric) shirts for $25 at Marshalls.
