I admittedly don't know where to go for custom shirts. A store called Mark Shale can do custom suits and jackets, but I don't think shirts is something they do. I think I'm set though with the five shirts I bought recently; after this, I'll just need perhaps three white / light blue shirts for wearing under a suit jacket.

It really depends. I buy what I really like. There are times that I will spend $100 or so on a single shirt, but other times I may only spend $14 or $25 (more on the casual side). I know that i need stuff that can get ruined so buying only high end stuff is not optimal for me.

I recently have been getting my shirts custom made. I have an awkward size (16.5, 32/33) and even then it still fits terrible. Blank label and modern tailor both make custom shirts to your specs. Ive gotten 2 already and they fit great are only around $80-$100. Local tailors wanted double that. Other then dress shirts and suits, its all cheap as possible, american rag $10 T shirts at macys FTW.Steven Aquino

It depends on how badly you want the shirt.
I have t-shirts that were over $100 and $5 shirts in my closet. It's rare I pass on a shirt that's sightly interesting and under $20.

as to your friends buying the cheap 2 for 50 shirts, they do not hold up over the long run, iron like crap, stitching comes undone, the buttons break. collars don't hold up, the colors fade really quickly. don't buy cheap shirts. i learned the hard way. i went through 20 dress shirts before i bought quality and now i hardly have to buy new ones
"only rich men can afford to buy cheap things"
think like this: do it right the first time, less money, less time wasted.
for dress shirt i spend between 80-110 per shirt, anything above that is tailored.
for sweaters, 50-100 depending on the type of material sometimes more but it has to be really special for me to do that.
for tee shirts, i get tons for free from vendors and i do not wear them that much. 20-30 per shirt i try to keep it below 20 if at all possible
for polo's they can get pricey. i spend for regular plain ones from polo raulph lauren 20-50,
designer, nice soccer types, fully stiched and logo'd and heavy duty 60-120 per shirt. they hold up like a tank and look good as hell.
for suits, well i don't buy many so that is way out of wack, 500 min price 1000 max unless it is a really special type
dress shoes i wear a 12,13 4e and pay through the nose for them. 120 min max 250-300 but they last a long, long time, 5-10 years if you use shoe trees and keep them up properly.
ties are really expensive and can range from 30 to 100 per tie. that the max i will pay. ties last forever, so look at it that way.
