It took me about 10 seconds to find this one. I'm sure that if you were to devote a few minutes of effort to the task, you could come up with numerous other examples.

 

 

 

Thank you.
Among tonns of pics found by google, it is hard to determine what is acceptable/correct, and what is amateur's unsuccessful fantasy. if only I could know, i wouldn't ask here. But most of questions asked here, can be answered by the same google, and it will took 10 seconds (as you said), but people, nevertheless, ask questions here. Why? Because, here we can find experienced people, and they can point you correct direction. That what forum is for, right? Pics in the internet (by themselves) can not do this.
 
No offence, ty again

My typical brand of dress shirts are arrow, however I have been thinking lately that I may need to wear a better brand of dress shirts.  Is arrow a good quality brand of dress shirts?  What is a good quality brand of dress shirts?

Michael answered your question here.

I haven't heard anything about Arrow, but always thought they were on par with Van Heusen and the like. I'm going to assume that it's not a great brand. Most of my shirting is Brooks Brothers (non-luxury). I think at my price range and convenience it is the best for me.

no jacket. glad with my choice looks pretty good. a pants are an olive khaki color so compliments nicely.

I have never been much interested in the chance that I have been picking a bad brand of dress shirt.  It wasn't until I hurt my feet and had to upgrade me shoes that I started thinking that I might also be wearing an inferior brand of dress shirt as well.  I typically like to wear solid white since that color goes with everything and there is zero chance that I could be not coordinating my outfit one morning, Something that is very helpful since when I get up in the morning and go to the closet I am 95% asleep.  One of the problems that I have been running into with Arrow lately is that that they wrinkle real easily while I am wearing them, id I role up a sleeve for any reason, like getting blood taken, the sleeve is all wrinkled when I put the sleeve down.  Problem is that until lately I really do not know what a good quality brands of men's dress cloths are.  I will need to rely on the internet for ordering since the only men's formal wear that my home town has are Joseph A. Banks, Men's Warehouse and Brooks Brothers.  My town has Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack  as well.  I guess what I am looking for is someone to point out a good brand of dress shirt becuse I have been wearing one brand for so long I really have no idea what a quality shirt is.

Brooks Brothers sells a decent shirt. Wait for sales.

I have read on ehow that if you look at the row of stitching the better quality shirts have a single row while the worse quality ones have a single row.  What are some of the other ways to tell a good quality shirt from a lower quality one?

post #21924 of 33133

Correction, the better ones have a single row while the worse quality ones have a double row.

Fabric, buttons, hand-stitching (rare outside of very high end Italian shirts), pattern matching, split back yoke.

And, first and foremost fit--though this will obviously be different from person to person.

How about Johnson and Murphy brand of dress shirts?  I am wearing their Cardell shoes, however I might rely on them for most of my formal wear, they appear to have most all of my dress wear needs covered, besides the suits.  

post #21927 of 33133
I've never seen them, but J&M shoes are not particularly well made, so I'd imagine their shirts would be of middling quality on par with most other department store brands.

I have no qualms about going out to the internet and ordering online, done it many times.  What is the name a good quality men's dress shirt brand?  I will seek them out online and hopefully they will have a web site or a re-seller that will sell them online.

If you are looking for something mid-priced but a good value, but Charles Tyrwhitt (ctshirts.com) and TM Lewin (tmlewin.com) are forum favorites. They both ship from England though, so you will have a bit of a wait on your hands. If you are anywhere near NYC or Washington, DC, you can stop in a Charles Tyrwhitt store to at least find out your size.

 

Brooks Brothers are also nice, but they are more expensive than the above brands and have a more limited color/style selection, especially in the extra-slim fit range.

Thanks for the info.  There is a Charles Tyrwhitt store no more than two or three blocks from my office, I go by there on my to and from the office every day and I have never noticed it.  I am not ready to buy as yet however I will stop by and take a look at what they have and keep them in mind for when I do need to buy.  Yes I do have a Brooks Brothers store in town although I have never bought there I have been by there many times, like Tyrwhitt I will keep them in mind for the next time that I need to buy.  I previously thought that the cheaper the clothing the better, however recent experience in dress shoes has taught me that is never the case.
