Location: The Salvation Army, 208 8th Avenue, New York, NY. I had only one find at this location last time I visited, but it was a very good one, a 100% cotton tattersall button down from Paul Stuart. The asking price was $7.99. This was actually a terrific find considering that Paul Stuart shirts are astronomically priced. The store’s website puts the price for a dress shirt in this style anywhere from $197.00 to $297.00 (although I think at the higher end the shirts are made of Italian cotton broadcloth and have French cuffs). It’s not often that I come across a Paul Stuart button down on my thrift expeditions.
The tattersall pattern is composed of navy and light purple stripes. Of course, I could wear the shirt casually without a tie, but I think it could look really sharp with at tie and perhaps a navy blazer.
