  • Pinpoint Shirt Suggestions

    Excuse the subject typo! Looking for shirt recommendations.

    Can anyone recommend shirts that are
    - pintpoint Oxford fabric
    - button down collar with decent collar roll
    - slim fit
    - under $50
    - preferably not non-iron

    Thanks!

    L.L. Bean with one major issue...

    TA291653 is the plain color
    PF291655 is the stripe

    They fray and fall apart in my experience. There used to be a "lifetime guarantee," but now they will just fall apart and that's that.

        For what it's worth, I ended up buying 3 of Spier & Mackay's light weight oxfords. While not exactly pinpoint, the lighter weight oxford cloth is pretty close to what I was looking for.

        As a plus, right after I received my order, they went on sale. I emailed customer service and they credited my the difference.

          What are your thoughts on the oxford? Are they good for extreme heat (Houston), or are they just a little lighter and suitable for northern summers?

          Thx!

            I don't know if I can give a good answer to the question - if I lived in Houston during the summer, I'd probably die no matter what shirt I wore. These are definitely lighter fabric, but the weave isn't very loose. Definitely lighter than SMs regular oxfords, but it isn't going to be as comfortable as a poplin.

            I am definitely happy with the shirts. The extra slim fit works well for me, and these won't require any alterations.

              Thx for the info! I was considering these, but as I suspected, they won’t be light enough.

                For Houston it's best to just go with linen or, if light wrinkling is an issue, poplin.

                  Any particular recs for poplin in the sub-$50 range?

                    My first stop would probably be the sale section at Charles Tyrwhitt.

                      I have a few paper thin J.Press for Trunk Club OCBDs that I picked up at Nordstrom Rack. They are just as good as poplin for the heat here. I need an alternative one day when they wear out and I really like S&M’s shirts. I also have linen and linen/cotton. I am always on the lookout for shirts than can help elevate the hell that is April-October in Houston!

                        If short sleeve works for you, Jomers just dropped short-sleeve poplin wares. Don't linger; their stuff tends to go pretty quick.

                          Thanks for the Recommendation. I can’t kick the image of Dwight Shrute from the office when I think of short sleeve button up shirts for business wear. I wear polos as much as I can, but sometimes an appointment requires a little more polish.

                            And it's like my email inbox is just option after option specifically for this thread today lol

                            Suitsupply just hit me with their lightweight polos.
