Default Quality dress shirts without breaking the bank?

So long story short, I'm done with a big chunk of field work and going to be back in the office pretty solid for at least the next year. My professional wardrobe desperately needs some updating. Every day is dress shirt, pants, and tie. I'm tired of my shirts from Macy's, Penny's, Banana Republic, etc. fading and wearing out quickly.

Where can I get some decent quality shirts and ties without spending a ton on them? I'd love some of the Brooks Brothers iron-free shirts, but $90+ is pretty high.

If you would rather spend more time than money, you could hit up the thrift. seriously though I have gotten about 30 mint brooks bros shirts w/dry cleaning tags. if someone doesn't pick the items up in time they go to the thrift. Some might think pretty shitty of the thrift stores, I did to until I witnessed some bomb deals. It is pretty hit or miss and they preferably will be going right back the the dry cleaners lol

Edit: if you want some good shit new try one of these.



https://www.weargustin.com/ ( made to order and takes a month or so to receive).


http://www.gilt.com/ (usually has sales)

And I am sure you know but pay close attention to sizing charts, not all bloat size lol

Edit 2 sorry these links may not be budget friendly

Edit 3 gilt is having a dress shirt sale right now... http://www.gilt.com/sale/men/dress-s...errer=homepage

Brooks Brothers has an outlet with various sales from time to time at Legends. Brother in Law got a handful for a couple hundred bucks.

JCrew's outlet has some decent quality shirts at Legends as well, and they are always on sale. Their regular store shirts are fantastic as well, and have outlasted all my other shirts by far.

I occasionally go hunting through marshalls or Tj max, most of it is crap. However, every once and a while you find some good shit for cheap, esp dress shirts.

I am not a fan of the brooks brothers shirts. I bought 3 different types (all long sleeve button downs) to give them a shot and I am not a fan of them. Their polos aren't anything special either. I don't get what the big deal is.

I would take Paul Fredrick over anything I have bought from BB. http://www.paulfredrick.com/Catalog/...rts;q=pfbrand;

I don't have to dress up daily any longer though.

BB used to be great but they are now on-par with Banana Republic but still more money unless you go custom. Their off the shelf stuff has declined in the last few years.
