Charles Tyrwhitt vs Brooks Brothers – Review of pricing

When comparing the pricing of Charles Tyrwhitt vs Brooks Brothers, Charles Tyrwhitt shirts are typically cheaper than Brooks Brothers. Brooks Brothers typically charge around $90 for a shirt in the US. On their UK website they are charging around £100 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. The range is also better on the US site. For example, there are many more Extra Slim Fit shirts on the US website than the UK website.

Charles Tyrwhitt’s prices vary a lot, but you can often (nearly always!) get good deals such as 4 for £100. Customers rarely pay full price for a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt.  If I put pricing comparison data here it would soon become out-of-date and/or be misleading. Instead, for Charles Tyrwhitt shirts I suggest you click here for for the latest discount and voucher code information I have.

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.)

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 differences between the two brands.

Charles Tyrwhitt vs Brooks Brothers – Review of fits and sizes

The four tables below will let you compare the different shirt sizes of Charles Tyrwhitt vs Brooks Brothers. All sizes are in inches and all the measurements are garment sizes.  In early 2013 Brooks Brothers removed the detailed size guide they had on their website and Charles Tyrwhitt went from measuring chest sizes by the garment size to giving a “to fit chest” measurement. Following feedback, I’ve put the actual garment size data in the tables below as this makes a straight comparison easier.
