    Price includes US shipping.

    Note that the solid and uni stripe OCBD's are very, very slim. I think they are slimmer than BB ESF.

    This is the best deal you will find on made in USA OCBD's. These shirts have no neck labels except for the Garland Shirt Company in the dark check.

    The solids and the University Stripe were manufactured by Brooks Brothers in North Carolina, probably for another label. I am reasonably sure that these are Jack Spade Swenson OCBD shirts based upon the button on the back of the collar, sport shirt sizing, cuff placket button and the stitching on the box pleat. Jack Spade Swensons retail for $188. The fabric is a premium oxford cloth.

    The Dark Plaid has a Garland Shirt Company label which is really just a place-keeper. That shirt is an unlabeled Thom Browne shirt. I have some TB shirts which are exactly the same, but with labels. So, yes, it's an insanely good deal.

    These have Sharpie marks on the area where a neck label would be. The yoke is two layers of fabric there and the ink does not wick to the second (visible) layer. A few (10%) of them have the button on the back of the collar sewn on too high, not visible when worn but would mess up the collar if buttoned. There is one spare button of each size attached to the shirt.

    I'm selling these shirts super cheap and they are off the rack sizes, not custom makes. I am not going to measure shoulder, waist, or length on each of them.

    Price: $22 for one, $40 for two.

    Measurements are Neck-Sleeve P2P If I put a number inside parentheses then I have that number of them.
