    The white and black one were both fleabay specials. They are from the RRL icons collection which doesn't go on sale. And, yes, I'll post on the WAYWT thread after the shirt arrives.

    Belstaff Trialmaster, circa 1980. Barbour has a slanted pocket. Yeah, I wanted a vintage one with authentic wear.

    They have. Otherwise, you would still be wearing RL oxfords by next week. [​IMG]

    I think those shirts have been on eBay for a while. Didn't grab them since my experience with western shirts haven't been overwhelming...

    I really like the one dress shirt (non-western) that I got from RRL... it has very nice and interesting fabric. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I suppose they occasionally can go on sale, but the Icons collection is separate from what they get in for the various seasons. They are their staples and I've never seen them be marked down with the other clearance. I like the fit of the small shirts there. I've been loading up on shirts lately as I'm rebuilding my wardrobe for what I hope will be the last time for a long while. I'll be having a lot of stuff up for sale in the B&S forum at good prices over the next few weeks, including some RL oxfords, whacked.

    drizzt, RRL really has kind of become my guilty pleasure store. I would be no means wear everything but they consistently have stuff that I will wear (bandanaz). I'm also really into the Flat Head but have not made any purchases yet.

    It is a thick, tight weave cotton knit. Nice trim cut. Very flattering fit. I'm sure it will get lots of fun wear.

    Shirt looks good.

    To elaborate my last point, I usually find western shirts a tad too long to be worn untucked. This is mostly because of my relatively short torso; I suppose I can have the shirts shortened, but then balance would be off due to the presence of chest pockets. Doesn't help that I'm quite short to begin with[​IMG], and have a 8-9" drop. Sizing down usually makes shirts too tight.
