Looking for some slim fit classic white and light blue business shirts.

Plenty of other colours but thin on what should be a staple of the business wardrobe!!!

Usually buy at local Nicholas Jermyn but prices are up there for a very basic shirt!

Cheers

I buy mine when I am in the US. The shirts I buy are $150 here and $20 from the outlet shops there.

I usually buy 10-15 at a time.

I was going to the rivers outlet stores in Aussie, but lately just getting the Warehouse ones and wearing them until they wear out!




I know a little more than nothing but not much...

atailor.com.au or luxarytailor.com.au - same place. If you "like" them on facebook you get notifications of coupons, so you get a shirt made to measure for around NZ$80.

I've bought all the colors and patterns I like from there though, so I'm interested in where others get theirs from.

Try these guys in the UK www.ctshirts.co.uk. Top quality shirts and about 60% cheaper than, say, 3 Wise men.

P.S. I got 3 of the non iron business casual shirts, and boy oh boy, no need to iron, it works!

Also get machine washable suits as dry cleaning charges in NZ are ridiculously high.

I buck the trend and wear what I feel comfortable with which doesn't include "business shirts". Understand you can't always do that though!

Hint:

White shirts with yellow collar stains. Soak them in a bucket with NapiSan or an equivalent product before washing.

networkn: I buy mine when I am in the US. The shirts I buy are $150 here and $20 from the outlet shops there.

I usually buy 10-15 at a time.


On this note - any recommendations for LA or San Fran? I pass through there every few months.

It does largely depend where we are, I have specific places in Vegas, but usually I just do a bit of research and pick the biggest outlet closest to where I am staying. I make a point of going to Van Heusen Stores and Banana Republic do an awesome Non Iron Blue Shirt but it's pretty pricey at $80USD. I usually buy those online and get them shipped to my hotel free with a 25% off coupon. They are by far the nicest blue shirts I have owned. 

In Hawaii there is only really one decent Outlet store and it's no where near as good as the larger cities.

Izod don't make business shirts but I buy a LOT of my sportswear there.
