    Hi,

    I was looking through my wardrobe today and realised that I am severely lacking in the gingham department (one tattered old blue one).

    I am looking to buy a few new gingham shirts, in whatever colour (blue is a must, other colours are still possible). I am looking to keep them RTW and not *too* expensive, I am in the UK and my neck size is 14.5 / 15.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Harvie and Hudson do a nice one. Turnbull also, but in a smaller check IIRC

    James & Longbourne do a few.

    Robert Emmett sometimes.

    I'd love to get a Hilditch & Key Sea Island one but they don't have them it seems.

    I have one from Haupt that I think looks nice (the gingham isn't too big or small), is comfortable, and very well made.

    Brooks Brothers has some nice ones in the Black Fleece line. However, I'd wait until they go on discount, which seems to occur often.

    I have several RLPL and have been very happy with them. Pics in a recent thread on gingham shirts but too lazy to search.

    If you want to buy them now, J. Press has great looking ones in red and blue at 25% off, meaning they're about sixty bucks each right now (not exactly cheap, but not too expensive either). Button-collar, though.

    You'll definitely want to get them tailored, however.
