    Ordering new shirts for yuntif…

    Would you purchase:

    A) Paul Frederick shirts for $20

    or

    B) Charles Tyrwhitt shirts for $30

    Also, do you prefer regular or non-iron?

    If you are really the rosh yeshiva, you should get them from the thrift shop.

    CT, Non Iron, any weave but Poplin. I recommend twill, basket weave, or royal panama. PF shirts aren’t that nice.

    Walmart does mail order (even to cities that ban Walmarts, largely due to its low prices and large selections). Their shirts are half the cost and include “comfort collars” so you won’t looklike someone wearing a too small shirt that forces you to leave the top button undone.

    def. CT. unbeatable quality and style.

    #1065519

    How do you get CT for $30? I thought there’s an additional shipping fee.

    No place in the US bans Walmart per se. It is just that many places, NYC included, have zoning laws that make it difficult for Walmart to build their huge stores.

    @VM- The rambam in hilchos talmud torah says a talmid chochom should dress in the style of a beinoni- not an ashir, not an ani, but a beinoni. Thrift shop doesn’t fit the bill.

    @nahapochu- I’m leaning toward CT, non-iron, but I like how thin poplin feels, why don’t you recommend?

    @nolongersingle- it’s $10 for shipping under $100, $15 over $100

    Are they any better than the shirts for sale in the Hat Box and other heimishe merchants?

    #1065524

    I need more details, specifically, why it might be worth paying $10 more for a CT shirt than a PF (a 50% increase, to be dramatic).

    So you can show off the “better” label to your friends.

    ive had 8 cts for 4 years, most of them look like they just came out of the box. the 2 pfs i had both ripped at the cuff. ct’s customer service is great, pf’s acted snidely from the time i asked for shipping to lakewood.

    How do you get Paul Frederick shirts for $20? Their biggest prom that I haven’t seen in a long time, was 3 for $100.

    If you buy NON IRON – its less work for your wife or you save by not sending the shirts to the cleaners !

    ct much much better! Have had both and ct much nicer and last longer. Pf crease terribly even after good ironing. ct has a nice selection.

    Why less work for his wife? He can’t iron them himself?

    Definitely the CT. I got a few a little while back when they were on sale and I have been very impressed by the quality. They come out of the wash looking brand new and are very comfortable.

    Because naturally the wife tends to the household duties.

    If CT is more expensive, is for a reson. You get what you pay for!

    How do KS shirts compare to CT or PF?

    #1065536

    In case anyone doesn’t know, KS = Kirkland Signature (Costco).

    Do they make shirts without collar-point buttons?
