    Well, just out of curiosity, who makes them? The quality seems fine and I can buy them cheaply from a local thrift store.

    I did my due dilligence, there hasn't been any discussion on this topic yet, please fire away. [​IMG]

    Not sure, but I have a few of them and really do love them. They seem to fit me the best, the designs are nice and the price is right. I've gotten a lot of nice comments on them as well.

    Interesting. I'd like to know this, too. Mine are Egyptian cotton, fit well, look nice, appear -- at least to a n00b -- to be well-constructed -- and yet were very cheap.

    i used to like them a lot, but they tend to fit me like a tent. and trust me, i am NOT a beanpole. the quality was really good, but i had to take every shirt to my tailor to have the sides and upper arms taken in.

    I know someone who works for them on importing, so I'll see if I can find out.

    Talked to my source. Apparently manufacturer and country of origin are top secret information.
    Sorry! Someone here can probly find out, but not me.

    By US law the country of origin must be indicated on the garment ... so that part is NOT top secret. Now the maker may be top secret ... but I'm sure if we had our "old-timers" back ... they'd be able to figure it out ... easily.

    Where is A.Harris when one needs him.

    These are awesome work horse shirts. When they go on sale at Nordstrom Rack they are like $10-15 each. [​IMG] Totally worth it. The construction is extremely solid, and care is as easy as it gets. Just throw them in the washer/dryer, give them a snap out of the dryer, and walla! They offer both traditional and slim fit. I found that for my build, sizing down the traditional by one size works well. The arm holes aren't as high as the slim fit.

    I snag these up all the time at the thrift store. The non-iron ones are amazing - literally no iron needed. I sometimes use a steamer on them and they look great.

    I truly think these shirts are a great, everyday office shirt that will last awhile. I personally think they are a lot better than more expensive shirts I own.

    Not really. I prefer shirts without ... but they aren't terrible. That said, a good number of people feign disdain.
