    Hello. I was checking out the style of this Georg Roth shirt and I am really digging it. I like the contrasting cuffs - which I think makes the shirt looks very sharp with the sleeves rolled up. The only problem is this designer sells shirts for $200+ and I need a more affordable alternative but with similar style. Let me know what you guys think of the shirt and/or if you have any suggestions. Thanks.

    Two words: "English Laundry"


    And if you have Last Call near you, that's about the cheapest place to find them. Just a warning, though. Some of them can be quite loud.

    Have you thought of MTM. I bought some shirts with contrasting details from Blank Label for around $80 each. Not cheap but it was a b-day splurge.

    There was a time when I think I just might of been able to pull off shirts with contrasting cuffs. That time was before Modern Family aired.

    @Deke - LOL, the first thing I thought of when I saw this post was that Modern Family guy. I started to dislike the look after I saw that guy wearing them in every episode.


    @Ryan, I agree with Alan on English Laundry being a cheaper alternative. I've seen them at Marshalls and Burlinton Coat Factory.

    I do own one English Laundry shirt, but I never let the contrast show. Either I roll the sleeves up further or just leave them down. It's fun enough for me just to know it's there. It's just unfortunate, though, that often the PRIMARY pattern is still too loud on them.

    You may like the one's that Johnston & Murphy sells, $98.00. They are not as loud as others IMHO.

    Charles Tyrwhitt also sells some of their more casual shirts with contrasting inner cuffs. I have one of them and think it's cool, but it isn't nearly as contrasting as they can get. You can get these relatively cheap when CT has their sales (which is often). Ex: http://www.ctshirts.com/men%27s-casualwear/men%27s-casual-shirts/Blue-peached-pinpoint-slim-fit-shirt?q=usddefault||CX014BLU|||||4498,||||||||#


    Agreed that the loud contrast makes me think of Modern Family.

    @hornsup: What do they cost when on sale?


    Side note: I'm glad to see a site who's "evening shirts" mean tuxedo shirts, and not something like Ed Hardy or Affliction. Every time I see someone in an Ed Hardy shirt, I have a short one-way conversation in my mind... "You know how I know you're a d-bag?"

    @Alan: I got the one I have for $35-40 during their "shirts as low as $35" sale. I'm not 100%, but I think mine only had contrasting inside cuffs, not contrasting inside collar.


    (Note: CT's sale section has some right now with patterned shirts with white contrast inner cuffs/collar)


    RE Side note: The true sign is when they take off the EH/Affliction shirt (which, regardless of time of day or surroundings, is always a possibility) only to see they have tattoos either reading "Affliction" or other decorative tattoos to match their shirt. Bonus if any of their ink is done in color.
