Where do you get decent shirts at a decent price?

I generally go with TM Lewin 4 for £90 but wondering if there is someone better to go. Obviously you can get shirts much cheaper but I do like getting decent quality

To me its all about the fabric.

If you want them to last then Paul Smith, Italian made, not cheap, but quality lasts.
Just got rid of some favorites, worn weekly, worn out, after 8 years wear :(

This lot make some good shirts, also, but depends on how racy you like to be at work.

Charles Tyrwhitt do a similar offer; always washed well for me. Gant seem to be good quality too, from the couple that I've had but have paid a bit more for.

Charles Tyrwhitt for Men's Shirts, Suits, Ties, Shoes & Accessories From Jermyn Street, London (http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/)

Can't go wrong with a Hugo Boss shirt either, especially in the sale. :)

What about the cuff?

Double-cuff is too fiddly in the morning and doesn't add much in my book (to the wearer, the shirt companies like it though).

CT come with a variety of cuff options.

The two Gant shirts I've got have a simple button cuff option, while the Hugo Boss is cufflinks only I think.

For formal (i.e. weddings, christenings etc.) I like the pin collar/club collar shirts

Claudio Lugli with club collar and holes for collar pin; or
Luxury Handmade Shirts | Hawkins & Shepherd (http://www.hawkinsandshepherd.com/) Pin Collar Shirts London.

For work (i.e. casual) tends to be stuff I've picked up from a charity shop (Tattersall, 100% cotton checks) or I did get a really good one "Mantaray" shirt recently with fantastic stitching and corduroy elbow patches, for £4. :glasses

I only ever iron the formal shirts.

+1 on Tyrwhitt.

But that's because i am 6'6" and have long arms. They do extra long sleeves.

Good quality cloth and always a french (double) cuff for wearing with a suit. Casual/smart casual/business casual without a jacket then either but if you are rolling them up at any point double cuff with cufflinks are a pain in the sphincter!

I used to wear Thomas Pink shirts, the quality was always good. Then I think they moved all their production to somewhere like Vietnam and the quality collapsed. I'm not paying over £70 for a shirt that is made in a third world sweat shop.

Now I tend to stick to TM Lewin, where you get four shirts for £100 and the quality is very good for the price.

Mrs pj likes me in a Charles Trywhitt, and ever since I bought a few, Charles emails me once a week offering me a free tie, £15 off etc etc.

+1 for TM Lewin 4 @ £90 is hard to beat - especially when you can get the extra sleeve length for online ordering.
Bought on the understanding they won't last forever - but once the collars start to fray due to a Desperate Dan stubble I cut the sleeves down and use them for summer DIY shirts

Always found TM Lewin to be a bit crap. But that could be because the sizes are not great for me. Material seemed a bit thick and low quality.

I'm bought a nice shirt from Hugo Boss, good fit, £70. I used an online retailer in Belgium (you give your sizes and they fit to measure) but buggered if I can remember the name. Think it was suggested to me on another thread a while back.

Double roll up nicely though. :D

Personally I have mine made for me by a nice little company in Slovakia.

Best quality, nice designs, cost me about £20 a pop when I buy a few at a time.

TM Lewin

Bought a couple from a branch of TM a few weeks ago.

100% two-fold cotton, button cuff .. but even though they have the 'Established 1898, Jermyn Street London' main label they also have a tiny label inside near the spare buttons .. Made in Vietnam ..aaah

You come across as a complete chav, with your emphasis on fashion brands as opposed to quality.

Poor quality watches with a brand name, suits and shirts that were probably made in Indonesia or Eastern Europe... And it's not like they're an expensive brand with some exclusivity - I regularly see HB suits for €350.

I've recently gone down the route of made to measure for suits and shirts, with my own choice of fabrics, cut and design - and costing no more than your mass-market off the peg jobbies.

By default they come with plastic stiffeners in the collar, but spend the extra few quid and get some proper metal ones, just remember to take them out when you wash them!

You like their clothes? Good for you. They don't look bad - I saw quite a nice looking suit in the shop window just last week. But to believe that they are the pinnacle of menswear, or of style, is simply wrong. They are a slightly more expensive Debenhams, nothing more.

Yes.

In fact, I'm currently wearing a pair of shoes made by these guys:
iTailor Shoes,Bespoke shoes,iShoes made to measure (http://www.itailorshoes.com/)
Most comfortable shoes I've had for ages. Good quality, get a lot of comments on how great they look (I went a little different from plain black).

They also do shirts and suits. I have a couple of shirts from them, no suits. The shirts are decent quality, my only complaint is that you can't provide measurements for wrist circumference, so the cuffs can be a little loose. I guess I'll have to get more wrist exercise somehow to bulk them out.

Basically you're dealing directly with the same people who will be making clothes for the brand labels, and paying a bit less. If you decide to try this route, I'd advise just buying 1 cheap shirt first, to check your measurements. In fact, I had to order a couple of shirts, changing the measurements slightly, before I got it right.

I do like the idea of tailored shirts. I don't think I've ever had one that I was happy with - either it's vast and voluminous, or it fits but comes down to my knees, or it rides up my back like I'm a girl wanting to show off my tramp-stamp!

Then there's the trend for tight fitted shirts where the buttons are straining slightly - great if you're a model I guess.

Pink shirts are without doubt the worst to iron that I've ever come across - professional laundering if you go that way.
Lewins are alright, inexpensive and plenty of options to get a decent fit.

I gave iTailor a go off the back of this thread, they had some offer on so a tailored, customised shirt ended up something like £25 including p&p - think the shirt was only £18 or so.

Pretty impressed, the only error is one that I made - I asked for quite a short shirt as I want one I don't tuck in, and should've been more cautious. I also measured myself pre-Christmas so need to wait a month until I can wear it with confidence ;)

Anther TM here. Lucky enough to have a factory outlet near me (Cheshire Oaks, where there's a Jaeger outlet also).

What was wrong with them? I have been buying from Savile Row for close on 10 years, and have never had an issue with them.

I like a breast pocket with single cuff and find that their customisation is reasonable. They are not £80 shirts but more than adequate.

Could be some bargains to be had at Austin Reed as they enter administration. Both shirts I've had from them have been decent, but they're over-priced compared to TM Lewin and CT:

'A statement from the administrators blamed a "challenging" retail market and cash flow difficulties.'

A statement from a CUK forumista blamed uncompetitive prices.

Where do you get decent shirts at a decent price?

I generally go with TM Lewin 4 for £90 but wondering if there is someone better to go. Obviously you can get shirts much cheaper but I do like getting decent quality

Have you tried Primark?

Chester Barrie for me through House Of Fraser. Cutaway collar and single or double cuff.

A Chester Barrie shirt I once bought from House of Fraser had buttons with Richard James Savile Row etched into them. I guess they are made in the same factory then!

Simon Carter and Chester Barrie are same stable, that's for definite.
