What Is Your Opinion On Express Dress Shirts?

What do you guys think about Express dress shirts? Do you think they look professional? I have two, and I'm wondering if I should get some new shirts to replace these?

The critical question is fit: if you're fortunate enough for S/M/L to give you the exact fit you want for collar, sleeve, and body, congratulations! Similar story for Uniqlo, BR, etc that do S/M/L sizing.

It's much more likely, though, that something will be off: the collar is too tight for days when you need to wear a tie. The sleeves are to short to cover your wrist bone and show 1/2" beyond your suit coat.

If this is the case, you need to graduate to a brand that has cuts that fit your body, and exact collar/sleeve options so that you can be both comfortable and professional.

I wrote a longer post(https://www.wardrobeessentialist.com/post/moving-up-from-small-medium-l…) about this if you're interested.

They're shit, and should not be warn. Step number one - go to Charles Tyrwhitt and get your EXACT measurements. Step number two - buy 10-20 blue and white shirts and you'll never have to think about it again. It'll probably set you back $400-500, but the non-iron stuff just lasts forever and you can actually machine wash them which saves money on dry cleaning. Just remember...BLUE and WHITE shirts only, don't deviate.
