    Does it have to been online? It's really easy to find PRL shirts at discount stores like TJ Maxx.

    Lands' End shirts are servicable quality, but a little blousy for me.

    Lands end makes a slimmer fit, as does LL bean. Those two are probably your best bets.
    Traditional companies that have been making this stuff for forever.

    Yep. I remember spending about $19 for some great quality oxfords at Uniqlo. Give them a call if you're not in NYC.

    Brooks Brothers' can be had on sale or on Ebay for around $40 and the quality is better than Polo Ralph Lauren IMO.

    Not under 40, but slightly above is a house brand at Nordstrom named 1901. Bought 2 of the athletic fit oxfords that I really like. Price is $49.50

    Polo rugby on sale; there should be a 25 percent off sale coming up. The fit is pretty spot on for me. I am a medium in both rugby and gitman brothers but feel that the rugby is cut slimmer and better in the waist and hips, and very similarly in the chest and shoulder.

    Lands End isn't terrible and they fit slim, yet not skinny.

    You can probably get some BB Extra-Slim fit ~$50 on a good sale. Rugby has a good reputation, but I have yet to try them out. JCrew's outlet stores have OCBDs for cheap. They may not be as good as actual JCrew, but they're not terrible either.

    I would advise to stay away from Brooks Brothers though if you have a slimmer body shape...their shirts tend to be rather large around the midsection.

    Uniqlo used to have nice oxfords but they suck now.

    Try Rugby on sale?

    If you buy 3 for $200 from Brooks Bros and then find a discount, you won't be too far off, and they're pretty good quality (and can be had in like four different fits). I think H&M has some for $19 too.

    Polo custom fit? Picked up one at Bloomingdales for $39. See them routinely at places like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc. for ~$29. Yes, the custom fit and in basic colors!
