    urban outfitters has one that's made with a nice cotton poplin as opposed to the really thick canvas lke material they use for real military shirts.

    Does anybody know where I can get a shirt like this one by Filippa K http://europe.zoovillage.com/store/...268&DisplayItemID=20757&Position=3&ListType=1 An online store will be most helpful since my area dosen't any good stores.
    Hi Its funny you ask that now because I was also looking for this kind of sweaters but couldnt find them anywhere. I went to a local dump store and they had these kind of things in all plastic: http://www.armybarracks.com/shopDeta...&ProductId=381 Now I want also something like that but then in lighter, thinner, better quality material and most of all more stylish. I know a friend of mine wore one of those things a few years ago but that was a brand clothing and looked really really nice and it was made of very thin, nice good quality cotton / wool I think. Anyways if you find anything let me know. By the way I cant open your link. xerxes

    There's a J Crew shirt similar to the one you posted here:

    http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...atId=cat106037

    Not my favorite but it's similar.

    Varvatos makes one that's a lot nicer I saw in Nordstrom in Chicago, but it's a lot pricier and not sure where else you could get it.

    Military/safari is fashionable, so everyone should be doing them. If you are in a large city, check H&M, Zara, Mexx. There also is a v. expensive Neil Barrett one covering Justin Timberlake on the cover of the current USA GQ.

    Seriously? I have not seen any anywhere. Polo/RL has some decent (mostly NOS it seems) ones, check eBay.

    If you have one near you, its fairly easy to find those shirts for about 10 dollars at an Army/Navy Surplus store, and it will be real and more durable.

    h&m is currently making these. i saw them this past weekend at the midtown store in manhattan. i believe urban outfitters is making one as well now, but while both are sure to be bunk quality, h&m's $15 to what is sure to be $40-$50 at urban outfitters is much more reasonable.

    Yep, H&M has a couple right now, Banana Republic has a nice thick one (which I purchased last month)......I think Zara has one as well. THey can be found everywhere....they are also called "safari shirts."

    I would go with the H&M one it is usually of the same quality as j.crew, urban outfitters, and bananarepublic and much cheaper.

    98,2 % percent of "stylish" Finnish males currently have something camo or military style now. Can you spell "A-t-t-a-c-k o-f t-h-e c-l-o-n-e-s"?

    Personally, I stay away until the trend passes.
