Harvie & Hudson have checked shirts . They're very decent and well under $300 http://www.harvieandhudson.com/products/Shirts/Ready_To_Wear/Classic_Fit_Sale At a higher qualitty and price point is Hilditch & Key- on sale. Shirts run quite full. They also have slim fit. Altering shirts is cheap, however. http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk/Gentlemen/Shirts/Default.aspx SF affiliate Shop the Finest has zillions of check shirts from the better Italian makers.

I own several oxford cloth shirts. None are button down. Mine come from H&K, T&A, Finamore, Hawes and Curtis ( old owner) The Finamore was bought this year.
