Hi there.... who are some really good CASUAL shirt makers in the UK? (or Europe)

There is plenty of discussion around dress shirt makers but I'd like to buy a load of really well made, well fitting casual shirts for everyday wear.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Literally no one knows of any good casual shirt makers? So bizarre!

Where are people buying good casual shirts from?

I just spent the last 2 hours searching the internet and there are almost ZERO good or interesting casual shirts online!

Anyone?

Thanks - I don't like button down shirt collars or overly swept collars (espcially on casual shirts ) which is what they seem to specialize in! But certainly interesting.... thanks.

Portuguese Flannel?
Thanks - not really looking for flannel but good to know about!

I think what I'm after is like Japanese tailoring, you know, indigo dyes, japanese type textiles with those sort of fine detail patterns, light material, very casual, jeans and shirt under a leather jacket type vibe... Loose!

Paul Smith/PS Jeans. Agnes B. Flax London. Percival. Folk. Toast.
Thanks for the suggestions - Percival I find the most interesting (and I recall I used to have something by Agnes B but I can't remember what it was!)

I found something on the Percival sale for only £50 (can always send it back if no good)

None of them are exactly what I have in mind, but they offer some interesting items.

Guess I'll just have to start my own fashion label specializing in cool, casual shirts!

Picked up an "overshirt" from Percival that was in the sale so got it for £50 - kind of an indigo blue, tough workwear smock, sort of communist China style! Not entirely sure how I'll wear it but.. it has a lot of pockets so might make it my smoking jacket now that I smoke pipes! (pipes have a lot of accessories needed to make them function)
