I'm looking to pick up one, possibly two dress shirts for interviewing. (I don't want to buy a ton of shirts until I actually receive an offer.) What are some cheap options in NYC (less than $100/shirt)?

What I'm particularly looking for:

-TAILORED FIT (this is most important, and it's particularly difficult since I have long arms--if I size down enough to have a shirt fit well in the chest, the sleeves are normally way too short)
-White
-Barrel cuff
-No chest pocket
-Spread (or something similar) collar

The only problem is that I want to be able to try on the shirts before purchasing. Once I get a feel for what works, then I'll have the confidence to order online later.

Charles Tyrwhitt. Their shirts are awesome.

Second on Charles Tyrwhitt, cannot emphasize enough how great they are. I have the same problem as you when it comes to proportions and CT's tailored fit shirts are a godsend. The only drawback is that the tailored fit selection is super narrow relative to their slim and classic fit lines but seeing as you only want white, this won't be a problem. Their only storefronts in the US are in NYC, one of which is in the BarCap building.

I haven't had a carb since 2004.

Everyone on this site seems to think that Charles Tywhitt is God's gift to man. While their stuff is good, especially for the price, I've definitely owned/seen better shirts. But ya, if you don't want to spend a lot and you don't want to shop at discount stores, Tyrwhitt is a good option

Go to Brooks Brothers. Brooks Extra Slim Fit shirt > any CT tailored fit shirt.

They are $79 normally, 3 for $209, and during the semi-annual every December and June, they are $59 each.

Don't get a Brooks Brothers extra slim shirt if you actually want to be able to button your collar. I would agree that CT is the best shirt for what you're looking for (quality and price). After you get a job though you should definitely go for custom shirts, it's the only way to get a spot on fit without getting alterations. There's a lot of great companies making custom shirts at affordable prices now too like J.Hilburn, Blank Label, Indochino.
