um,Boden [risking being reviled by anti Boden brigade] or White Stuff, now they're nice (get them for dh who is about 43 I think...God,how awful,I can't think how old my own husband is !!!)

I like the check shirts in Boden

I like the white stuff ones but they may be a bit too casual

That italian stallion one is gorgeous-wonder if he'd wear the pink one ?

Went to fat face today and nothingl

Paul Smith.. Can't beat his shirts this year.

All of DH's shirts are from Charles Tyrwhitt.

They are partic good IMO as they do a gorilla long-arm option, and slim-fit styles, plus a choice of cuff fastening (cuff-links or buttons), and (best of all) properly non-iron shirts. As in zero ironing. zip. zilch. And they feel lovely and soft.

Paul Smith
Especially ones in the formal shirts (London) part on website.

Very nice.

TM Lewin much better quality that Charles Tyrwhitt ime, and have a great choice of styles and size (inc long arm). They normally have a special offer on, and last forever.

ooh - link cmot!

cmotdibbler Wed 20-Aug-08 09:17:01

TM Lewin. They are the only work shirts that DH (tall and, um, well built) will buy now. We haven't bought the non iron ones (I buy the ladies shirts), but they iron beautifully anyway.

brimfull Wed 20-Aug-08 09:24:18

cmot -thanks for that link,fab sale on atm as well!!

derelicte Wed 20-Aug-08 09:25:04

Thank you cmot!

There is a fab sale on at The Savile Row co which I have only recently discovered for dh work shirts (was buying them as a present btw, I am not responsible for buying his clothes!)

Second Paul Smith too.

brimfull Wed 20-Aug-08 12:07:14

www that sale is great,I take it they are good quality?

WideWebWitch Wed 20-Aug-08 14:00:13

ggirl, I think so so far but have only bought from them since July this year so can't talk about how long things last. Dh thinks they're good quality too and their service is good.
