    Hello,
    I'm on the lookout for a dress chambray shirt that I can wear to the office, as an alternative to poplin or pinpoint oxford for warm weather. I've found one that Ledbury makes (see below), is $145 an average rate for a decent chambray dress shirt? Is it undreasonable to expect to find something decent at a lower cost? Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    $145 is a decent price for a chambray shirt. Taylor Stitch also does a good one. There are lower priced alternatives at places like J Crew, and Brooks Brothers which are about the same quality, as well. But unless you are going high end or budget, in the "moderate" prices you are working at, the important thing is to find a shirt that will fit you well, both for your specific physique and for your tastes - some of the shirts will be more "preppy", and others, more "workwear".

    I have a couple Albini chambray shirts from Proper Cloth and I love them. I've heard good things about the Howard Street chambray and will probably give it a try soon. Like LA GUY said, $145 is a decent price for quality chambray. Best of luck.

    You can also find these at SuitSupply (I believe they're around 100$), and Eidos has made them in the past.
