    Clothing for work

    Ok, right off the subject of IT, wanting some new shirts for work, don't want to spend to much so was looking at Asda George and tesco, but im rather fussy on sleeve length, i prefer short sleeves, i can't find a nice shirt with short sleeves, anywhere, unless i want just black, but was hoping to find something maybe burgandy or just generally different colours. does anyone know anywhere I can get some decent shirts from which are short sleeves?

    All I wear is black short sleeves... Matalan do a range of shirts cheap tho for the chic geek.

    I always buy M&S non-iron shirts, last ages and come out the tumble dryer looking perfect
    Their bundles are not bad price either.

    Check out ebay, you can get some shirts which are the real deal for a pittance, or if you have a TKMax nearby this is the place, low prices but with a lot of style, which you will not get at Matalan, Primark or Asda.

    Matalan is officially my favourite shop - I get everything from there!

    I bought the whole range of slim fit work shirts from there! Waiting for them to release more colours

    I can't stand having synthetic material next to my back. Luckily, I can wear casual to school so it's Cotton Traders polo or t-shirts.

    Debenhams usually do a good range of shirts ranging from cheap to bloody expensive - I usually go for the mid range Thomas Nash ones - they rarely need ironing

    You can get some really nice shirts for very little cost at Primark but I have found they have gone funny within a few weeks in the wash. It isn't my washing, as other items would be effected if it was the case, and I am washing at 30 deg c.

    They actually work?!? I've always assummed they were a bit scammish.
