    They are in every f/w 2010 collection. Shouldn't have a problem finding one.

    For a reasonably priced, decently fashioned, not-so-unique option, there's Mr. J. Crew.

    That J Crew shirt has been the hit of the season. It is still selling for full price.

    I'm actually wearing that J. Crew shirt today, I love it. Very comfortable and a great fit, though I recommend sizing down one if you prefer a trimmer look.

    I 2nd Lands End Canvas for a cheaper version. If you want to upgrade it, you can buy some MOP buttons and have those swapped out for the crappy plastic ones they put on. For the grey shirts, you can put in smoke MOP buttons; I think those look better on that grey.

    The J Crew shirt that was linked above, however, I think is much more stylish than the LEC offers. If you have the money, however, I'd go with the RRL. Only do LEC if you're on a tight budget. You only need one of these, so it might as well be a great piece.

    I've been on a hunt for a decent red chambray shirt for the past few months. Quite by accident I walked into an American Apparel and saw a decent stock of red chambray shirts (button down collar, priced $58). Tried one on and the fit was pretty good, fabric was a little stiff.

    I didn't pull the trigger because I am not familiar at all with how AA's button down shirts hold up. Was curious to know if anyone has any experience with them?

    Just to add, Lands End Canvas has a red chambray shirt, and they have 25% off sales once every four weeks or so.
