As Good As It Gets

— Mon, 7th July 2008 —

Practical, durable, trend-proof — These are core tenets to The Beggar’s philosophy on shopping and style. We hold in the highest regard those products and brands that can withstand the test of time, and competition from higher-priced high-flown rivals. Case in point, take a look at where Ray-Ban Aviator’s rank among Men.Style readers, many of whom could easily afford more expensive versions of the classic eyewear.

The Moment’s latest High-Low column, which features “the cheap and the chic,” sings the praises of another classic: Brooks Brothers non-iron Oxford button-down shirt. [The Moment] At a mere $45 a piece, one or two of these workhorses will get you through any weekend excursion.

We previously mentioned Brooks Brothers’ ability to achieve the perfect balance of craftsmanship and affordability with this blue two-piece, which was ranked by Esquire as the best suit for under $500.

***NOTE*** If you’re considering worshiping at the alter of founder Henry Sands Brooks, now is the time as Brooks Brothers just entered clearance mode both in stores and online.
