Formal Client: Need Budget Shirt Recommendations

Hi friends,

I need some recommendations for dress shirts of decent quality, both collar and buttondown, for a fairly formal client. No tie needed all the time but wanted to buy 4-6 shirts in the $70-110 range. I will be traveling a lot and would rather not bring my best shirts for some trips.

Any suggestions for decent quality shirts in this range?

Any suggestions for current websites to check out?

Thanks much,

Lee

What's your size? If you might be able to buy some of the shirts while traveling in major markets, you ought to name them here, for store references (and saving on shipping or regional markups).

I vary between a 16.5 and a 17 depending on brand.

It's still a very broad query. Presumably the home country is the USA. Charles Tyrwhitt, Brooks Brothers, and the brands at Nordstrom Rack are respectable options.

Not real impressed with the local Nordstrom Rack selection but thanks for the other recommendations.

FWIW, I always pack Brooks Brothers non-iron shirts while traveling. I also appreciate the fact that they're one of the few American brands of shirts available in a slim (and even extra slim) fit. I'm certainly no skinny hipster, but I have broad shoulders and a moderately slender, gut belly-free torso, so shirts that aren't slim-cut look like crap on me (and add 20 pounds).

BB has two flavors available here: Supima and Egyptian cotton. The Supima line is 3 for $225 and has dozens of styles, including a variety of collars, available. The Egyptian line is *much* nicer in feel ... and also *much* more expensive. Below is an example.

If even 3 for $225 is too much, I've had decent luck finding BB shirts on eBay, assuming you don't mind wearing "vintage."

Finally, if you have an upper-end outlet mall near you, you might check there for shirts. The one closest to me has a Zegna outlet - not my personal fave, but my dad likes them and their outlet is a good option for Father's Day and b-day gifts for him.

Charles Tyrwhitt, 4 shirts for $199. You can probably even find a plain white for $35. Good shirts, great price.
