I tried on a couple of the A&F button up shirts the other day for the first time and I must say I was impressed by the fit. They are well constructed and fit better off the rack than any of the other mall-brands, in addition to Ralph Lauren and like. They have comparable designs to any other standard brand, including a few bountique types seen on the forum. The cotton oxfords are nice and sturdy....sleeves are a bit long, but that works for me. Any tailor can shorten if needed. Most of the button-ups are logo-less, so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. The canvas tag is easily removeable and I will remove that moose if I end up purchasing the oxford shirt, which is one sale now. Regardless, the logo and image are not a valid excuse to not buy these shirts, as many on this thread have claimed. Just curious what it is about the shirts themseleves that makes them so repulsive?

I really want the madras button up and one of the plaid button ups... just can't justify spending $170 + tax on them just yet. Hopefully they'll go on sale when summer hits. I like their stuff, people need to get over themselves.

Yea that shirt posted like a page back is a pretty nice shirt and will probably go for around $30-$50 dollars on sale. I buy their shorts.

Any of you guys have experience removing the moose logo on the buttonup shirts?

just take a seam ripper and take the pocket off. i do this all the times (aber kids xl for all you fellow 5'5" and under guys) fine for the oxfords, might look odd without a pocket on the western style shirts though...

I work at Hollister(Owned by A&F) and their shirts are actually pretty decent since they have that western style. I have one that I'm pretty much required to wear for work and it aint bad actually. It has snap buttons however it's a casual shirt so it doesn't make a difference. This is the one I'm talking about: http://www.hollisterco.ca/webapp/wcs...-1_12558_12551 It fits pretty well too.

Some of the shirts look OK online, especially the more workwear looking ones without the moose embroidery. But I can't get past the B&M's obnoxiousness enough to step inside.

I'm interested in the oxford shirts and want to remove the moose w/o removing the pocket.

removing embroidery rarely goes right in my experience...
