Plastic buttons on the Pink shirts only, even what they call Super 170s, which they sell for $210 full retail. Â Absurd. Â I find most of their patterns (bold checks and stripes) very tasteless. Â
I _think_ the 170s shirts _may_ have MOP buttons. They are the only Pink shirts that still appear to be made in Ireland, unless Pink is just using old labels. However, for a little less you can get Hilditch & Key Sea Island quality shirts, in which they seem to use 160s cotton. A good shirtmaker's cotton has much better finishing than anything Pink uses. If you like the Pink patterns and $90 + tax seems like a fair price for you, go for it. However, I personally think Banana Republic shirts are better made and cheaper, with enough funky patterns. Like Pink, they're 3rd-world made, but unlike Pink, they have MOP buttons (many do, at least).
