It's been a decade since I've been able to buy these shirts and I'm going to bend the card a bit to stock up against the next inevitable drought. Good thing they last 10 years or so.

Why would you drop $50 on one dress shirt? There's plenty of good dress shirts for 50-75% less. Even at Salvation Army or 2nd hand shops sell the creme de la crop brands (Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama, Brooks Brothers, Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, Banana Republic, etc). Living in a state (MI) with some of the highest-income cities
in the entire nation (#2 bloomfield hills, grosse pointe, farmington hills, etc) - a lot of old people die and their uppity clothes get donated!
But that's okay, i get crazy too... for example, when Tommy Bahama releases their DETROIT TIGERS MLB camp (100% silk) shirt for $250 per shirt, I'm SO there!
