If this has been asked to death, I apologize, I try to use the search button as much as possible and keep questions to a minimum. I'm looking for short sleeve casual ocbd's both in white and light blue (100% cotton) but at reasonable prices IE: under 80 dollars. I'm striking out big time, I tried the usual suspects (Goodwill, Target, TJ Max, Ross, & even got desperate enough to look at Wal-Mart) Online I've looked at Gap and only see long sleeve, LL Bean looks like all they have is wrinkle resist which I would like to stay away from. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Have you considered MTM? The oxfords are $45 at www.tailorstore.com You can customize the inner and outer sleeve length and armhole opening width. Downside is the shirts take about 4 weeks from order to delivery. Also it may take you a couple of tries to get the measurements right, but eventually you ought to be able to end up with a perfect fit.

Thanks for the link, I was actually looking at them last night, I just don't think I can wait 4 weeks. The only thing I have that fits me right now are a couple of AA tees, I need clothes bad lol. Loosing weight has left me with one empty closet.

I just checked there, all they have is 60/40, seems next to impossible to find all cotton.

I need to find another Thrift shop, all that's in my immediate area is Goodwill, and they don't usually have much.
