Anyone have any good ideas or resources for shirts?
S&K has a buy one get one free deal. Paul Fredrick had the same deal going on not long ago. Also, Kohl’s has some really good prices on some good shirts for the money.
I’m a big fan of the geoffrey beene line. Can find good deals at maceys. But for some of the nicer, spread collar stuff, I’ve only had luck with Men’s warehouse, on special orders.
I’ll agree with jamesbond about Brooks Brothers. You can save quite a bit if you have a 346 store in your area by buying 3 for $200. If you have their card it’s almost always 10% off as well. I just got a soft leather business bag at one of the 360 stores for $150 when I’d seen it for much more at one of the regular stores. You can “build your own” shirts online if you have an unusual request such as a particular fabric with a certain cuff type or embroidery of your initials, etc.
Paul Frederick shirts are, in my opinion, poor quality.
I bought the 4 shirts for $80 deal, and i got what i paid for. They shrink, they wrinkle and just dont wear well. I threw them all out after wearing them 3-4 times.
Brooks Brothers are in the end, less expensive. They fit great, wear well, and are very comfortable. They last a long time.
Paul Frederick runs specials in USA Today and Registered Rep for white pinpoint at 19.50 each for a limit of 4. You can choose your collar and sleeves.
I love Land’s End shirts. I have a couple of them. One I bought probably 7-8 years (that’s right, I said years) ago on their clearance page. I wore it once a week, washed it and pressed it myself, and it looked as good as new until the elbow finally gave out.I love their stuff and it's usually reasonably priced. I also like the Kohl's brand of Croft and Barrow. I've had some good luck with shirts from them.
I use almost exclusively Land’s End now. If you you clean and dry them correctly, they require very little ironing. And for the money, you can’t beat them.
Jos A Bank is constantly running sales online. The Travelers series (wrinkle free) are decent, but still need to be ironed slightly.
