    Yes it's an absolute horror i agree.
    Everytime i eat a steak now, i do a little prayer before for the soul of the poor animal. I've got to do the same thing for vegetables.

    Are we not going a bit off topic now? after all this thread is for discussion about the style/subculture, not discussing the ethics of food consumption, there is a reason why no politics is an unwritten rule somewhat on here too.

    My name is not Dave its Rodney!.

    As for brooks brothers, i do rather like them, they have rather nice collars, the one i have has no back button or hanger and and an open pleat but still, im not devastated considering the price i paid for it, and it has a nice american fit, they are a no brainer if you see them in charity shops for cheap in vintage shops.

    Was there any connection/overlap between your crew and the soul band from Santa Cruz The Inciters?

    Nought wrong with Brooks-- most of their shirts don't have the back collar button these days, and haven't for a long time. As for the back pleat being open, it's there to move with you-- so an open pleat is functional. You seem to be a pretty slim fellow so that probably ain't a problem for you, but with the couple Mikkel Rude and the one Brutus shirt I own, I use a seam ripper and make so the back pleat is at least partially functional.
    If you're browsing Brooks Brothers, check out their "Red Fleece" collection. They're about $60 USD/£50 right now on the site but I'm sure you can find some on eBay, etc., for cheaper. They're *slightly* slimmer cut(still bag out a little bit, "American cut", not slim waisted or darted), straight hem, have the back collar button and locker loop. More of a two-button collar, but a decent roll.

    Here's a Red Fleece I was wearing today. Pretty robust oxford cloth. [​IMG]

    I second the Red Fleece recommendation. I found one in a thrift a few months ago in a green university stripe pattern. It fit very well and has become a regular in my rotation.

    that is a nice shirt, but 3 finger collars is not something i can do without, it just adds so much more to a shirt imo, in would rather have none of the back details as long as its a 3 finger, any larger tends to go into harry hill territory, tho imo.

    there is also a brand called BD baggies, although they are open pleat and and more regular fitting.

    There is also a brand called getup, although i have never heard of these, still nice stripes.

    From what I've seen of BD baggies, their collars aren't much more than two-finger. Get up have some nice collars but they are prohibitively skinny fitting.

    If you don't mind spending a few extra quid the Gitman Bros Vintage shirts are very nice IMO. THey have the 3 finger collar and back collar button. There is always Gant as well. I picked up a Gant "Yale Co Op" addition over the summer and it has all of the details. Box pleat, locker loop. 3 button collar. You should be able to find those on the bay for not too much money. The only downside is that they are made in China if that is an issue. Ben Sherman has a lot to answer for haha! They've ensured that every Skinhead needs all of those (their) details to be "right". There are plenty of options for great quality shirts that fall within the parameters of The Look.

    From what ive read on this, it has 3 finger collar etc, tho sometimes descriptions can be incorrect, perhaps they also do a more modern range.

    ive seen gant shirts plenty of times, and they are nice, the only thing what puts me off them is visible logos on the outside of the shirt.

    looked at the gitman shirts before, they are nice but perhaps a bit too expensive for me brand new, but second hand is always an option.

    Well Ben Sherman were just biting Brooks Bros' details anyways.
    Gotta say, the Gitman Vintage collars are the same or smaller than the Brooks Red Fleece collars. I celebrate both products!

    Gant has different ranges, and a few of them have no logos on them aside from a tonal "G" in a discreet spot on or newr the sleeve cuff . [​IMG]

    I own a few Gitman shirts and all of them are a solid 3 finger collar. I'm sure that they have a few different cuts though. I guess I just got lucky haha [​IMG]
    My red fleece number is about 2 1/2 fingers but the fit is so nice I can live with it.
    Agreed about BS, but I wouldn't wipe my arse with one at this point. Those things disintegrate after 2 washes.

    Yeah BS are definitely pretty "BS" these days.
    Your Gitmans with the 3-finger collars might be straight-up old school Gitman, or a special range.

    Or maybe I just have thin fingers [​IMG]

    I worked for BS for 8 years and do not own a single piece other than a pair of chino shorts. I got promoted to "Regional Product Knowledge Trainer" and tried (in vain) to get them to used nicer fabrics.. they obviously did not value my opinion hahaha.

    I realize how sad this is but I'm drawing my son's bath water and have time to kill.

    Striped shirt is a Red Fleece and gridded one is a Gitman Vintage. Same exact collar size. However the BB's placket at the top button is rounded, which I prefer, whereas the GV's is 90°
