Brooks Brothers, go to their website. AFAIK they don't have a UK retail outlet, so add VAT & import duty to price in $ on website. If either of you ever go to USA for business or pleasure, make it a priority to pick some up, there are Brooks Brothers stores in many of the outlet shopping malls. They do different fits and different sleeve lengths.

Eton shirts are amazing. They last and last and last.

DH wears CT too, there seems to be variation in the quality.
His best ones have been from Thomas Pink, usually bought in the Sales.

I don't know about variable sleeve length but I love hawes and Curtis

DH still likes TM Lewin, even though they weren't as good as they once were. They get retired through getting stained rather than worn out though.

TM Lewin are great if you're of gibbon proportions. DH wears the 38" arm ones.

Can't say for sure how long they last as DH only wears them for going out and so they last years!

The only shirts of DH's that last anywhere near ten years are the bespoke ones he gets in Hong Kong when he's feeling flush. I can PM you the tailor's details if your DH is ever in Asia but otherwise tbh all the high street work-shirt places are about the same.

Pink if need double cuff- can't be beaten. DH likes jaeger for button cuff these days (his role is more casual now)

Thomas Pink and some of the more tailored heavy cotton shirts at M&S. But in general dh wears his collars and his sleeves and we replace about 4 a year

Jaeger Outlet - dh gets all his shirts there now

Twinkie1 Thu 26-Nov-15 20:52:38

DH gets holes on his elbows where he's on his phone all day. Boden replace his shirts each time it's happened and I just pay a small amount depending on how long we had them.

The other place to look is Austin Reed, I think they do long sleeves too.

Jaeger Outlet - amazing quality although IME white shirts start to look a bit grubby after a while even if the quality holds up.

My DP loves Borrelli and Finamore. His favourite Borrelli shirt is about 6 years old, has been washed countless times and looks brand new. They're expensive but gorgeous and worth every penny.

Luxire custom shirts are also fab, really well made, great choice of fabrics, nice hand-sewn details and extremely reasonably priced.

was going to recommend tm lewin, they have all sorts of arm lengths.

m and s do a 2 inch longer shirt. they have a whole range of polycotton at £20, a nice cotton at £30 and posh ones t around £45.

tbh, dh's tend to last 18 months as they are washed after one wear/ a seam goes and neither of us sew/ end up stained with god knows what.

pinechesterdrawers Fri 27-Nov-15 21:15:30

oh, m and s also do a made to measure which is worth a punt for £50 or £60.

dreamingofsun Fri 27-Nov-15 21:20:06

suggest looking at jaeger outlet - there's a link on here recently. got a lovely shirt for my son which looks really good quality and is 100% cotton for £15
