The dress shirt. From the boardroom to date night, worn with a suit or even jeans, every man needs at least a few in his closet. You know a good dress shirt can be very expensive, but realistically, it doesn’t have to be. There are many good quality, high-style dress shirts available. You just have to know where to look. Here are eight very different dress shirts you can practically steal, costing just $100 each.
Zara Fine Pinstripe Shirt
Zara’s Fine Pinstripe Shirt takes pinstripes to 2.0, with its cool dot pattern on top of a more traditional design. If you are looking for something just a little bit different, but not too crazy, Zara’s got your perfect dress shirt.
Gap + GQ David Hart Tab Collar Oxford Shirt
For several years, GQ has collaborated with the Gap, offering a limited edition line designed by their Best New Menswear Designers in America award winners. There are so many great pieces in this collection, especially David Hart’s Tab Collar Oxford shirt. This bright India Pink shirt can bring some fun color into a dark suit. Bonus: The fabric is extra soft and machine washable!
ASOS Smart Shirt in Long Sleeve
There is nothing smart about paying an arm and a leg for your dress shirts. ASOS takes care of your shirt on a budget problem ASAP with their Smart Shirt in Long Sleeve. The gray cross-hatch design is modern and casual, but still dressy enough to make the category.
Gant Diamond G Perfect Oxford Fitted Shirt
Gant’s Diamond G Perfect Oxford Fitted shirt is high quality, but not high priced. The fitted cut is designed to be flattering to your body, yet soft and comfortable. Available in several colors including various shades of blue, white and pink, the buttery yellow color really stands out. This shirt would look great with a navy blue suit and pink tie.
H&M Premium Cotton Shirt
Designed in perfect colors for the Fall, H&M’s premium cotton shirt is exactly what you should wear from the office to happy hour. This premium product for a not-so-premium price looks way more expensive than it actually is. The shirt is formal enough for a suit, but causal enough to wear with khakis. It could even work with jeans. And yes, it’s machine washable too!
Nordstrom Smartcare Traditional Fit Check Dress Shirt
Unlike many other department stores, Nordstrom has very high-end items along with really great deals all under one roof. Their Smartcare™ Traditional Fit Check Dress Shirt is a beautiful shirt that won’t break the bank. The blue and white gingham print makes a plain navy or grey suit way more interesting. The fabric is also cut in a way that will flatter every man, no matter what his body type is.
Club Monaco Slim-Fit Triangle Dress Shirt
Club Monaco’s Slim-Fit Triangle Dress Shirt is the most modern shirt on this list. Just because a shirt is a dress shirt does not mean it has to be solid or have a traditional pattern like pinstripes or gingham. Whimsical and fun, it features a point collar, two button cuffs as knife pleats at the back yoke.
UNTUCKit Purple Gingham Mendoza Shirt
If you like to wear an untucked dress shirt with jeans or casual pants, but the extra fabric just doesn’t look right, UNTUCKit shirts are your dream come true because they are designed specifically to be worn untucked. Their Purple Gingham Mendoza shirt is one of my favorites because you probably do not have anything similar in your closet. Available in regular fit and slim fit, you will love this 100% Japanese cotton shirt.
