Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling when you’ve secured a job interview, only to realise that it calls for business casual attire? Are you also tired of checking the price tag on a basic button-up shirt only to find that it costs an arm and a leg? It’s a predicament that most men face, with limited options that often leave you feeling less than stylish. The most adventurous thing we can think of is maybe rolling up your shirt sleeves to feel a bit edgy. But fear not, as we have found some affordable and stylish solutions to help you dress the part and make a lasting impression.



A shopping haven that offers an enticing range of affordable button-up shirts starting at just EGP 270.

Their range focuses on classic basics, ensuring you have the shirt you need for your everyday use. Prices start at EGP 600, slightly higher than Sutra, but the investment is worth it. We believe they should be a go-to destination for anyone looking to start a business casual wardrobe from scratch.
