    Around here it seems to be that Charles Tyrwhitt and Brooks Brothers have great dress shirts. I am debating on purchasing a Suit Supply shirt but I am reading mixed reviews on them.

    What other brand dress shirts would you guys recommend?

    How much do you want to spend, per shirt?

    Hilditch & Key will be on sale at the end of June and will drop to £55 or so. I haven't found another shirt maker that pattern matches sleeves for under $100. IMO, they are a pretty big step up in quality over BB and CT.

    Yeah sorry I totally missed that in the title [​IMG]

    So you are probably past the CT, TM Levin, etc price range if you are willing to go that high.

    Consider made to measurements by an online tailor, I think mytailor.com, and maybe moderntailor.com are some examples of those?

    Suitsupply is around 100 for their basic slim fits. They are pretty decent. But tm lewins stuff is almost as good at a much better price - although their selection with barrel cuffs is limited... Boggi is in the same range I think, and they are very nice. A bit better than the two brands I mentioned Imo

    most of my OTR shirts are from BB, CT and some Paul Stuart because they are the only brands that offers sleeve length that actually fit my short arms. For the past year, I have been rebuilding my collection and using MyTailor, not online but when they visit my area.
    I am extremely satisfied with the results. I started with cheaper fabrics on a couple shirts and once they have my measurements nailed down, that's when I switched to better fabrics (TMason, Alumo etc) . I know it is a little more that stated budget for OP, but I find it more reasonable and satisfying in the long run. I also plan on using affiliate Luxire soon..

    check out ratioclothing.com. It's online made-to-measure but they only take a couple of inputs (meaning that there's less room to mess up). Start around $90, but I believe they have $20 off for new customers. I own two of their shirts and couldn't be happier. I would recommend subtracting 1" from the waist measurement though if you want a slightly slimmer fit (they can accomodate most requests to their shirts).

    Looking at their shirts on the website most of their button cuffs have funny buttons. I just want a basic cuff botton

    If you are a bigger guy, then Hilditch and Key would suit you better, as would Brooks Brothers.

    If you are willing to go a little over or maybe even around your budget, I would highly recommend MTM shops. If you are near NYC, you can actually venture in and get measured. I have trouble finding shirts that fit and have decided going the MTM route myself. From researching and reading on here, you will see that most people are happy with their MTM purchases. Try the proper cloth or mytailor or other.

    Indochino's shirt's are pretty solid. I bought them during a promotion, but I think that the regular prices range from $80-$120. I've never found a rtw dress shirt that fit well. They're all boxy, baggy and/or short in the arms.
