    Washington Shirts. Oxford cloth. 100% cotton. This is important to specify in Korea as polyester doesn't carry the same stigma here as it does everywhere else.

    I'm going in for a forward fitting tomorrow at B&T. I will have to check out their shirting, see if I can't find me a wide dress stripe gray and a pin stripe brown. I think these are definitely my two choices for shirts.

    Thanks much Noodles' Good Natured Advice Thread.

    You just made me want to go out and get a shirt just like that. Intentionally not spoiled.

    I have to go to Korea every year. So maybe I can pick it up for you. [​IMG]
    I still regret NOT getting the wide spread collars. [​IMG]


    Dear Clags, I really liked this shirt. I believe you have butt load of these...

    do it. for all the navy suits you wear i think you could get a lot of mileage from a shirt like that.

    You can get fairly good shirts for 60-80 dollars a pop at Washington. Pretty happy with them. Rudals, when next you come, I suggest loading up on 5-6 there.

    AND DEFINITELY GOING WITH THE WIDE SPREAD COLLAR!!! [​IMG]

    Last time that I had to go to this place by myself, I walked into what I thought was Washington's only to find out that it was the wrong shop.

    Please post fits with these when you get both, especially the thin stripe brown.
