 Really depends upon how much you want to pay. Uniqlo is a great option at the cheaper end of the scale. I've only had good experiences with Uniqlo knitwear, but I haven't bought any for some years (as I haven't needed to, as my v-neck lambswool jumpers and wool/cashmere blend cardigans are still going strong). However, others have said that the quality might not be as good now and that they've experienced pilling and wear fairly quickly.
^Very nice.   If you are mailing something overseas that is made out of, say, alligator (a species protected under CITES) do you know whether you have to provide any sort of certification when you send it? Is that something with which you've had experience?
@fxh - You might enjoy this article on the Gantmacher brothers and their impact upon the button-down shirt:   http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/comment/obituaries/elliot-gant-the-man-who-popularised-buttondown-shirts-dies-aged-89-20160319-gnmea1.html

With regard to the square, I'm pretty sure that you should be able to stuff it into the pocket so that the other three parts are down below the top of the pocket and only one quarter is showing. The tricky bit would be to get a decent "puff" with only one quarter but I'm sure it could be done, especially if you puff the other quarters below it and just make sure that the quarter you want to show is on the top. 
 You've got to look at Guardians of the Galaxy if you want some inter-species loving. 
 I knew that we'd have at least one private school attendee here who would grasp my meaning.
 Do you happen to know if Oxxford's cut fits/suits you? If you don't know if it will fit you or if the cut will flatter you, then don't buy it. Don't get taken in by the brand. Oxxford makes very nice suits but if it doesn't fit, it doesn't matter what the fabric is like or how much hand-work has gone into the suit. For what it's worth, Topshelfapparel is a very good seller. He's also a member here (or was, at least) - VMan. I've bought quite a bit off him in the past and...
