    I work in a business casual environment and its sometimes a little harder to express one's individuality.
    My boss does an incredible job of this, however. He has several l/s dress shirts which seem to be of the exact same make.
    They all have bright red translucent buttons and either red, blue or green stitching around the button holes, depending on the color of the shirt. They are barrel cuffs and all have 3 buttons on the cuff.
    They material of the shirts are a washed-looking miniature graph type. From what I can remember theres a blue, pink and purple shirt, all with the above details. I have never seen shirts as distinctive as this and am curious to know who makes them.

    Well... I was using boss as a quick explanation. I'm a low level employee and he's the CEO of a large company. I rarely ever get to even speak to him and its sort of an awkward conversation to have. I'm sure they're distinctive enough that someone on here will recognize it.

    They could also be MTM shirts, something to keep in mind.

    If no one has a stroke of genius before Tuesday, I'll see if I can somehow ask him.

    3 buttons on a barrel cuff? Rarely see that on RTW. most likely custom.

    I would not do this if I were you. It's just a bit awkward given your respective positions.

    Sounds completely like MTM. Although Turnbull & Asser has 3-button barrel cuffs.

    Pics are worth 1,000 words, in case you don't ask him but are secretive with a cell phone camera.

    They certainly will be worth 2 words when Mr. MTM 3-button-barrel-cuffed CEO sees himself on SF having been secretly snapped by an intern. Can you guess what they would be?

    I'm still trying to reconcile 'expressing one's individuality' with trying to figure out how to find the same shirts as 'that other guy'.

    try the basics before attempting a shirt like this

    I never said I wanted to wear one. I was just curious.

    Doesn't Turnbull & Asser do a three-button cuff?
