    Anyone have any brands they recommend? I've have owned the following:

    1. Brooks Brothers: $98-$75.
    The most expensive, I like the variety of fits although I think the fabric quality isn't what it was. Are they trading on their name?

    2. MacCluer: $90-65
    I stumbled across them at a small men's apparel stop and fell in love. I like the fabric and particular the substantial collar. I live and die by the collar and I don't starch so I like a shirt collar that can hold its shape.

    3. Lord & Taylor Black Brown 1826. $80-50
    Smooth feeling fabric on the thin side can be a benefit in hot weather.

    4. EAGLE: $80-45
    Non Iron works well, but tend to wear out quicker, fabric is ok not as nice as others.

    I try not to invest too much in a shirt since I usually dispose of after a year due ring around the collar, sweat stains, and fraying at the cuff. I also figure anything over $100, you might as well go MTM.

    Only brand I can think of is Charles Tyrwhitt, which can be around $50 but only when you buy four or more. No personal experience with them, but I know people that have them. If you toss your shirts after a year, they should fit the bill.

    How do you like your shirts to fit?

    I've heard the Charles Tyrwhitt fits rather large, though they do have a super slim fit, which generally fits much better.

    If you do like a tailored look, I would suggest looking at some Scandinavian brands. They seem to get the fabric, fit combo.

    I tried on a SuitSupply shirt and was impressed with the quality.

    Up until now I never paid any attention to the fit of the shirt. I can now understand why people go mtm route because it can be headache trying to find an otr shirt that is neither too tight or baggy.
