Thomas Mason, available for ~$150 from several MTM makers represents the standard against which to measure most other MTM shirt options. IMO. And you can get it from J.Crew too for slightly less. Not sure how they're able to produce so much shirting and keep their pricing relatively low, but haven't heard any complaints about the quality on the interwebs so far. $140 for an Oxford cloth is more than I am personally willing to pay for an oxford cloth, but I'm sure it...

Also, while they wrinkle slightly more than my 100/2 and 120/2 shirts, the wrinkles are more soft and subtle, whereas the thicker cottons tend to show unsightly cardboard-esque creases (relatively speaking). To the OP, don't cheap...
Wore my Chambray jeans in 100 degree weather today. They performed as expected. Pretty similar to other lightweight cotton pants I own. I like them. I'll probably use them for when I go out at night mostly.
Ugh, I feel so dumb posting, but here it is: Went to Burlington Coat Factory at the suggestion of my mother. Purchased a black suit in a price I could afford, $100 or so. Didn't do too well in the purchasing department for many years later.... Hell, I bought HB and KC not too long ago. Although I suppose the above story isn't quite true. I did get hand-me-downs from my uncle and grandfather.

For obvious reasons, not the best quality. There is a reason no one bothers to...
I second the J. Crew rec. I love their jaspe ones. The regular ones are good for unbranded good fitting polos. I like Ralph Laurens better though. I think Lacoste is just as good, but not sure if they make the non-mesh you refer to in OP.
Strand. Wish I had one.
All this talk of food is making me rethink my recent purchases of MWAC, RRL, & N&F Chambray jeans... How much MORE food could I have bought instead!!!!????
