    Just saw an ad in the back of Esquire: If anybody wants $20 shirts, you can type in E7RSE2 on the Paul Fredrick website.

    Depends what you define as good. For the price I think it's a decent quality. They also have a "trim fit" which is 5" smaller in the chest and 6"smaller in the waist, which I find to be a decent fit.

    Their regular price is in the $40 range (half a Brooks Bros.), so take from that what you will. I wouldnt pay $40, but at $20 they're good. I think their 80s cotton is as good as any <$100 oxford.

    I guess Paul Fredrick shirts, or at least the ones I've taken a look at, are like that $100 Target suit Drizz advocates: an ideal spare/emergency/travel item, but by no means a staple.

    that sounds a lot more trimmer than BB's slim fit (which I think is supposed to be 3.5 inches thinner in the chest and 5 inches thinner in the waist). do you find them substantially more fitted than the same sized shirt in slim fit from BB? I find BB's slim fit to be maybe 1 inch to big in the chest and 3 or 4 inches big in the waist (I'm wearing a 16x36 slim fit at a 42-43 chest and 36 waist at the belly button).

    edit: ok, BB's size drop is 5 inches at the chest and 5 3/4 at the waist, so it's the same. I'm actually looking at some of the trim fit shirts that are in the clearance section at $19.50.... it seems to be a true clearance since the sizing is very irregular in availability. haven't decided whether i'll buy....

    They run that $19.95 promotion all the time. I have a couple of them. They're fairly slim fit and decently constructed. The fabric is a little thin, and the arms are proportionally larger than the body. However, at $20 they're good emergency type shirts. I have a couple still in poly bag that sit around just for that purpose. The normal priced shirts go on sale every so often, usually for about $25-30 each. They're not bad at those prices either.

    Anyone know what the chest measures on the 17" slim-fit shirts?
