    I've seen nice ones by PRL and Brooks Brothers. I know Lands End and LL Bean specialize in this sort of thing. Thats where I'd start.

    I have a T&A brushed cotton shirt that I bought a few years back during a sale. They are having another right now that might price them around $125.

    Hi Tim,

    I think most of the shooting companies (Purdey, Holland and Holland etc) will do this kind of thing pretty well, as will your local agricultural merchants, though the end result might be more agricultural than your looking for.

    Hackett maybe?

    Thanks Charlie,

    My limits with H&H or Purdey are ties only for now and the ag merchant's best offers round here are Tom Joules who as a mate needs more persuasion to produce the look I want. I bought a great one some years ago in a shop on the IOS but lost it in a flood. Hackett not great and a bit too yah - I'll keep looking and let you know when I get there. Best, Tim
