    There is nothing "good" at that price point.

    If you cannot afford more either reduce the number you buy or else buy any you like and expect a short life and unexceptional appearance.

    Good to me means durable. I dont care for brand. I just want something that last at least 1 year and has a decent fit.

    Not at Century 21, but online try Lands End shirts on sale or with their coupons

    Why the fixation on Century 21?

    The fact that you first asked this question in August is GBR's case in point. It is difficult to find a high quality shirt in that price range unless you are some very odd size. Some members here have had good luck thrifting. There is a lengthy thread devoted to it if you are interested.

    Because they have the best discount.

    Are you going to change your requirements that they be from Century 21? Your reason "they have the best discount" doesn't make sense. And you also said you were 24 in your original post...

    Not sure exactly what you are looking for, what constitutes a good fit is very subjective, but Lands End, already mentioned, usually has shirts on clearance for less than $30, often under $20. They are durable. I don't know whether you would like the style.

    The irony of this thread is that OP was asking 1 week ago, at which point he could have received 40% off at Brooks Brothers had he purchased 3 or more. Had he been less fixated on C21 and bothered to read any of the gazillion posts here about the BB sale he would have been fine. Alas, now the sale is over.

    This.

    OP, Charles Tyrwhitt or TM Lewin are decent shirts in your price range, along with Lands End, as previously mentioned several times. Bonus with these is you will be able to get the staple shirts you need, not the bright yellow contrast collar rejects that show up at C21.
