    I put this in the wrong forum at first, so hopefully this one is right.

    I'm 18, first year student at UCSD and I want to buy a few nice shirts. By that I mean with collar and button. Right now I only own two button down shirts: a solid black and a solid darkish, somewhat shiny red, both Calvin Klein. My budget is <$100 per shirt. I know absolutely nothing about what I'm doing, what brands are good, what to look for, ANYTHING. Also, this is going to suck, but I need to be able to buy what I'm looking for at Amazon.com; I have lotsa money in gift certificates there. My plan is to hopefully get some tips here, then take a girl with me to macy's or whatever, try on and see what looks good on me, then buy it at amazon. These shirts are generally for dates or going out to nice places with friends, family parties, etc.

    I'm 5'10 160lbs with an olive/tannish complexion [i've been told this means i should get colors to compliment that, i have no idea what that means or what colors this refers to] and have 32" waste so have been told I should get slimmer-fitting shirts.

    I also need one pair of nice shoes that will go with everything, but I don't want to spend very much. Like 100, again. Again, no idea what I'm doing.

    I am looking for any and all recommendations. As a young guy, I own like no nice clothes, excepting a few pairs of paper denim or seven jeans.

    Here are some shirts that I like:

    umm, I'm mostly looking for brands that people like and advice on what to check out for button down, long sleeve shirts in the &lt;$100 range.

    There were some replies to your thread in the other forum, I would look at shirts from bluefly. I've had decent luck in terms of slim fitting dressier shirts from Hugo Boss as well, you may want to do a search for them on amazon, there are some that are &lt;$100, although most seem to be between $110 and $150, not a great deal, but if you can only buy from Amazon, not terrible either.

    I second Boss. The Enzox shirt is my favorite in terms of fit. They start at $85 at Macy's, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, and go all the way up to about $165 for the nicer fabrics.

    If you wan to 'cash in' those amazon gift certificates, you may be able to find someone to buy them off of you (at a discount.) Then you could shop anywhere you want.
