It's definitely one of the nicer examples. I think you did well! There was a period in the early 2000s where they were offering an "OCBD" made out if stretch fabric. Those were definitely dark times haha.

Looks alright to me, not the tent-like cut that I imagined. Looks like a size too big maybe, the seam should be closer to the edge of your shoulder, but shirts can be a little billowy and still work, a sort of 'grandad shirt' look. The bloke in the Brutus ad would certainly look a lot better in that sort of silhouette.

i certainly agree that the bloke in the pic would look better if his shirt was a bit more generous.

 

It is kind of growing on me to be fair, sometimes i think shirts can be a little bit too tight, and to me it kind of goes well with the bagginess of the 1966 jeans.

He would have been a skinheads's grandad in 69 .. never saw or heard of a skinhead older than early 20s

Exactly right. We spent most of our childhood running around outside. Usually only one fat boy per classroom. The Brutus shirts were the tightest fitting especially the short sleeves with the sewn in box pleat. My first B'S had the sewn in box pleat but my first stripped B'S had an open box pleat like the American shirts and was less fitted. The American import shirts were more baggy. I think Donkey Jackets shirt is not too big except maybe in the shoulders.

Its interesting to read that not all of them were sewn in box pleat, that B'S in the picture is also an open box pleat.
 
Then we have ones what look like they have no box pleats, back collar buttons or hangers whatsoever.

Im not sure if they are high waisted enough, its not always easy to tell from the pictures.

 

I don't think the uniqlo ones are, at least from what ive read on here.
