Hi folks -- I've been looking into buying new dress shirts (under $75) and would like some recommendations on the best places to check out. At the moment, Spier & Mackay Slim in a 15/33 fit me the best, however, that's after an initial cold soak/shrinkage, as my neck size is a true 14.5. I've tried CT shirts, but ultimately their slim in 14.5 is too tight around my chest. Spier & Mackay has been good to me, nevertheless, their basic blue or white dress shirts sell out rather quickly in my size.

Are there any websites I should check out?

Harvie and Hudson at sales time. Tax free should be competitive.

Standard size shirts will always have you deciding between the ideal fit of the collar and the sleeves over the fit in the body. There's consistency in shirts made to your specific measurements, where the only decision to be made is related to the style and not the fit.

Use lyst.com to find deals. I scored a brand new pair of Isaia boots the over day for $134 + shipping.

For shirts, you can find Eton on sale in that price range. They last forever and are super easy to take care of.

Have you tried Brooks Brothers Milano or Soho fit?

I personally like TM Lewin much more than CHT, both the fit and the quality of the fabric. They’re remarkably cheap.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
