Its been a few years since I've purchased shirts and I want to start fresh!

I have $1000 to spend on rebuilding my shirt collection. I was going to just order them from charles tyrwhitt but I'd love to hear what you guys would get and how many of what shirts?

I was thinking:

2 Whites ( 1 FC and 1 BC)

2 Light Blue shirts

And maybe a mixed batch of solids and strips

Along with some checkered shirts.

Thats my list.

What brands would you guys get? BB? Thomas Pink? etc

A lot depends on how often you need to wear shirts (everyday?), what profession you work in and what else is in your wardrobe (e.g. in terms of suits and ties). As it is, you have listed pretty much most types of shirts that one would have in a conventional business wardrobe (white solid, blue solid, along with other solids, stripes and checks)!

TBH - unless you are very easy to fit off the rack, I would be inclined to go MTM or bespoke and build your collection slowly. Shirts are one area where I think its really easy to spot a poor fit in a RTW item as something is ALWAYS off (either sleeves are too baggy, sleeves are too long etc etc).
