Roger,

You've talked about the 10 shirts you have in your closet that you wear to work. 

I have a feeling you'll say it doesn't matter the brand (or rather, why should it matter) but I've worn through one too many oxfords in too short a time on set and I need some help.

I'm looking for a brand recommendation. Do you have one you return to or are your 10 just a mix of different types?

I just go to the mall like most people. Nothing special.

I once read an article where everyone on the set of a Coen brothers film dressed up like Roger Deakins, with long sleeves, jeans, and boots. Don't remember the production where that happened...

I'm glad I'm not the only one that wears Oxfords on set. I feel too unprofessional in a t-shirt. I'll at least say my Stafford shirts have been tried and true to me. However, due to their price, I usually wait until there's a good sale on them in bulk and just get the varying colors. If I could wear the same thing every day, I would.

Gant make superb Oxford type shirts but is rather expensive at £85.00. It is a heavy twill weave and will last a long time. There are other great brands out there some more expensive, some less expensive. If you want the shirt to last, then it will have to be a heavy weight cloth to withstand the constant washing cycle and ironing.

Marks and Spencer brand UK sell Oxford shirts in all sizes and cost only £19.95. The shirts are well made using a heavy weight cloth and the cuffs actually fit your wrist. Many well known shirt brands have small cuffs despite generous shirt sizes. I can recommend Marks and Spencer shirts for longevity. They sell online and I understand they may ship for free! This is not an advertisement but I am just sharing my experiences of saving money.

I bought half a dozen today for Santa to deliver down my chimney!

There are so many brands have the perfect style & quality like Nordstorm, Fashion beans & Marks & Spencer etc. Of course they are expensive just because these are some amazing stores having quality products but whenever i shop through these brands I shop through some stable coupon codes» as this cost me really inexpensive. But also it depends upon the brand & their current offers.

Chicago has some great brands for men’s shirts and are favourably priced.
Norway is probably the most expensive place to buy men’s shirts or any clothing but what a fantastic country. Photographers paradise!
