    I spent the day shopping with much dissappointment. I was looking specifically for two things shoes and shirts. I was looking for a blue herringbone french cuff shirt and the only place i found one was Joseph Aboud, whichwas $60 and was def. not worth it. I was wondering if anyone knows any place that is selling herringbone shirts online for that price or less. I've been looking all over and can't seem to find them except for the MTM shirts that are way out of my price range. Was looking for something like BB. or better.

    Thanks
    Nik

    try this link:ctshirts they also have the same shirt in a lighter shade. if you don't plan to wear a tie, go down a full-size, as these are cut very baggy according to our members.

    Not quite $60, but the blue herringbone (slim fitting&#33[​IMG] Carlo Francos on ebay would be an excellent buy.

    I have a white herringbone w/ double cuffs Carlo Franco and love it. The blue on clearance as per jerseyguy's suggestion would be a good choice.

    Speaking Thywhitt, the address www.ctshirts.co.uk/woven seems to get you 50% off. I picked up a light blue herringbone for US$47.50.

    Could that be, perhaps, to compliment the suits you won? How do they fit, by the way?

    They actually fit pretty well,  Need some minor alteration but other than that they were a surprisingly good fit.  I'll check out Carlo Franco and charles tyrwhitt, 47.50 is not bad at all. Chances are i'll go with two ct shirts because they are ruffly the same price as one cf shirt and god knows i need more shirts. Thanks for the suggestions.  Oh and is the 50% still there for first time customers? and if so how long does it last? How do the shirts fit? I'm a pretty small guy and need a more fitted shirts? Nik

    Tyrwhitt is a good shirt at discount. I have two of them and wear them all along. If you need shirts on a more limited budget Tyrwhitt isn't a bad choice at all.

    Try Harold Square Macy*s, the Henry Jacobson shirts include a blue Herringbone weave with a white color and white FC. Cost is about $75
