Anyone wear Prada shirts?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Anyone here wear Prada dress shirts? Opinions?Reviews? I am very tempted to get pne but can't bring myself to spend that kind of money. Anyone have any more moderate suggestions? I spretty much wear calvin Klein and Banana republic slim fit now, but looking for more of a choice. I am not a brooks brothers kind of guy, but more european, modern look. Any help? or I may bite the bullet and start picking up a Prada shirt every couple months

How bout getting a custom made shirt? At that price I'd rather get an Ascot Chang.

Ditto- two good custom shirts for the price of one Prada.

The Devil does wear it. Ask him this question. They are overpriced and have a mediocre quality

Prada shirts are overpriced. construction is good. FAbrics are usually interesting. Lots of stretch fabrics.
Fit is always spot on. for someone who is slim. I have copied numerous Prada shirts. the problem is that I have very little access to the stretch fabrics that they use.

I agree completely with Carl. I don't know that I'd be thrilled to pay full price, but if you could find one on sale or if you have the $$$, I think they're great and (as a skinnier guy) I love the fit. If you live near a Neiman's Last Call or Saks Off-Fifth, you also might be able to find Theory on drastic markdown. They also have simple, stretch-fabric shirts that aren't nearly as good as the Prada, but aren't bad especially when 80% off (like $30 or so).

What is "FHNA," out of curiosity?

I have owned several Prada shirts in recent years, and agree with Carl's assessment. They are very well constructed and fit me perfectly. However, I no longer find them attractive as I've returned to a more traditional look. I've also come to realize they are priced much too high.

I dont know about newer ones, but older Prada shirts were great. really well made and cut nicely. It's easy to hate on the brand because it's a fashion house, but (at least in the later 90s) they've always had interesting fabrics, styles and well made

As well, I have no idea what they charge now, but while they were very pricey, they didn't use to be as absurd. IIRC, in the late 90's, early 2000's when I was buying lots of Prada, the standard no-pocket, stretchy-cotton solid L/S button-fronts were about $295. That's high for an RTW shirt, of course, but not ridiculous for what they were and how great they fit (it was tough to find a good, skinny, minimal shirt then)...

I only have a Prada polo but it is exactly the same in fit...slim and spot on. I've seen a lot of oxford type shirts that I've liked but have not pulled the trigger yet. As mentioned above, try Last Call or Yoox and Bluefly...I've seen some decent prices there.

I have to agree with everyone. I love the fit of their shirts, and I think they have great patters too. when they are available on sale, I would definitely buy. I did pay full retail once on one of their shirts. Don't regret it, but it hurt.

I think a pretty solid assessment of Prada in general is that the product is well made, but overpriced. If you can find any of their garments on sale, they would be worth purchasing, but at full price it is a pretty big stretch. This goes for shirts, shoes, suits, anything.

the price is high but as is said above the construction is good, but it in my case the fit is spot on, i use a prada shirt for a bascis model for al my bespoke shirts.
