Charles Tyrwhitt shirts are usually cheaper than Brooks Brothers. Brooks Brothers typically charge around $90 for a shirt in the US. On their UK website they are charging around £120 to £160 for their shirts.  If you are shopping from the UK I recommend you switch to the US site and compare prices, taking into account shipping.

Customers rarely pay full price for a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt.  Any pricing data I put here would soon be out-of-date. Instead click the sales and vouchers page for for the latest discount and voucher code information. Brooks Brothers often have sales related to the US holidays, like Labor Day, so if one of them is coming up it may be worth delaying your purchase.

Charles Tyrwhitt vs Brooks Brothers – Review of quality

I don’t think there is much difference in quality when you compare Charles Tyrwhitt vs standard Brooks Brothers shirts. (I haven’t bought one of the more expensive Brooks Brothers shirts, like the Golden Fleece range, so can’t comment on their quality compared to Charles Tyrwhitt.)

One area where Brooks Brothers shirts are superior is the non-iron. New Brooks Brothers non-iron shirts are superior to new Charles Tyrwhitt non-iron shirts – if you judge them by the amount of ironing you need to do. When I took my Brooks Brothers shirts out of the washing machine I could put them on a hanger and they dried wrinkle free. I couldn’t do that with my Charles Tyrwhitt non-iron shirts, even when I first bought them. However, having now washed the Brooks Brothers shirts more than half a dozen times I need to iron them like any other shirt and there is little difference between the two brands.
