Dress Shirt Recommendations
All right, so I have been slumming it out wearing brooks brothers shirts for too long. Today marks the 7th time one of the elbows on the non-iron shirts has blown out on me, and I am done with brooks brothers for good.
My problem with every dress shirt I have bought, even the few very expensive ones I opted to buy, is that they just don't fit right. Regular trim shirts are huge- alternatively, slim fit shirts still have way too much fabric around the body but are tight as hell around my arms and shoulders... At this point, as long as it fits, I am willing to spend around $200 a shirt for something that is not crap... does anyone have any recommendations?

y not go to a department store and be fitted. even if they dont have something in store you can always find your size and brand and order shirts you like online.

Go custom. I'm sure there are great option in MA for less than $200/shirt.

The best solution is always to go for bespoke or made to measure. From ready to wear I know that the best shirts comes from Charvet. They are very pricey thought. With 200 usd you could find a Turnbull & Asser or Hilditch & Key(see sea island quality), both shirtmakers from Jermyn street in London, with the second to be much more economical. You can try to buy online or look at your city for any shops that sell these.Hidden Content my blog about gastronomy and cars

YSL, Hugo Boss Black, Versace Collection fill my wardrobe. I typically don't button the top buttons or wear a tie and go down a neck size. I usually wear a 17 but I buy 16.5//42eu.If it Floats, Flies or F**ks, Rent it.

GO to a tailor who does custom shirts and have some made up.
