I've almost exclusively moved over to Charles tyrwhitt and overall am happy. IMO the quality is much better than Jo's a bank, and slightly better than BB. You can catch them on sales for about $40 a shirt.

I recently had a custom shirt made, just to see if I was missing anything, and I'm pretty unhappy with the material, at 4x the cost

This thread is now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (shirt).

Google CT shirts 3 for 99 and follow the link

http://www.ctshirts.com/default.aspx?q= ... aQodAUwKVg

The website shows the shirts for 3 shirts for 99, able to add to shopping cart, but unable to checkout

Even to create an account the website is unresponsive ?

Is there an online link for BB sale--2 shirts for $90 sounds great. I can only find 3 for $229.

I recently got five very nice Robert Graham shirts, with list prices from $178 to $298 each, for 75% off at Buddy's Small Lots here in north Jersey. The tags indicated that they came from a men's store that had apparently gone out of business.

I am not seeing the Brooks Brothers deal online, at least for dress shirts. Is it in-store only?

I received a mailed catalog from them in November and was able to order at $29.95 per shirt plus $10 shipping for 3 shirts. I didn't realize they come from England so the scheduled delivery was about 2 weeks from when I placed the order. No tracking number was provided.

The package never arrived. After I notified them they sent a replacement shipment with a tracking number which arrived in a timely fashion. Nice shirts, comparable to the Brooks Brothers items I've worn for years. Also similar to the Costco dress shirts at about $19 each, some with free shipping.

Four shirts for $2 each at Goodwill. They'd never been worn, best I could tell. They're not Brooks Brothers, but they're not Wal-Mart either. They look great with the $8 jeans I found there also.

I rarely go there, but the DW wanted to for some reason. I was browsing to kill time.

I don't know if they have any deals going on but I have converted to Paul Frederick shirts. They are really high quality and remain in nice shape for many years of use. After I bought my first one, I feel like those that I used to buy in box stores were like napkins in quality.

Be careful with the BB outlet stuff. I've found it's not the same quality as the stuff from the retail store, at least with respect to shirts and ties. The brick & mortar BB had a 4 shirt for $200 sale after Thanksgiving and they usually have good sales between Christmas and New Years.
