    Yeah, I haven't had those issues and they've been worn everyday for almost the past year now.

    @Duvel, not a fan of either, but it's not what I usually like to wear anyways. To each their own.

    I hear ya, @Viscious. I don't wear those shirts myself, but I thought I needed something different. Change it up a little without straying from the classics. To me, a good military-styled shirt is still classic looking. It's kind of a Hemingway, Bogart vibe.

    Ditto on not having any issues with AE belts. In fact, they've aged quite well overall.

    I feel like this gets mentioned so often that it's not really that valuable to say here, but Nordstrom Rack frequently has AE belts on sale. If you live near a Nordstrom Rack, that would be a place to check before you go shelling out full MSRP.

    I'm quite taken by the partial linen weave and the military look.

    There is this on sale: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...entPage=family

    The sale section has a number of good-looking shirts on sale, come to think of it.
    Honestly, I would just go on eBay and try to find some British Army GS shirts. Try to find the older cotton ones and not the newer ones with a shine. With posting from across the pond, you can get one for about $25.

    Regards,
    Vic

    Thanks, Vic. I'll check those out.

    Something more like these two.

    This is the older style.

    This is the newer style.

    I have a couple of each style and they heavier material irons very nicely.

    I prefer the look of Penfield's jackets (Vassan and Gibson in particular). And they're cheaper even at full retail at $160-180.

    I tried out a Penfield Gibson a few months fact. The fit/design was fine, but I did not like the material, which felt stiff and cardboard-y and did not drape or move well at all. It just felt cheap and uncomfortable compared to my Barbours, and still too thick and heavy for my needs.
