    Good lead.

    I'll keep looking, but so far the only fits they have are "contemporary" (whatever that is) Slim, and Extra Slim. Doesn't much sound like my belly!

    Thanks for the lead; I'll look them up when we head into Toronto and try on a "contemporary" to see what that is. Their sizing guide doesn't encourage me, still, always worth a shot!

    They have some tattersall shirts, not quite what I would consider tattersall, but some are quite passable; you might want to search checked, as I think some of them are more tattersall than their tattersall. (I know that makes no sense, but ...).

    And best of all they are Canadian. Indeed, if you wanted you could go their shop in TO; and ever-the-Scot, I think their shirts are cheaper than many you find in the shops.

    We have one about 15 minutes away, and I do keep a close eye on their shirts, but so far little luck. They don't seem to do tattersall too well.
    I realized after I posted that I haven't actually seen a nice tattersall there in quite some time. I think I have one from there but mostly gingham and smaller check in my patterned dress shirts.

    Bill et al: for inexpensive country wear, including tattersall shirts, check out Rydale Country Wear https://ca-rydale.glopalstore.com/co..._GB&utm_term=a.

    Long-sleeved, short-sleeved, light-weight, heavier-weight....

    By the way, the button-down trend in southern Europe is 'buttoned with a tie, unbuttoned without'. Gets them beyond the manufacturers' inventory. That's Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Greece, Portugal. Probably France, too. Some remove the little buttons, some just let them be; if you never do them up, the button-holes in the collars are only seen by those realllllly close.

    Excellent. Thanks Rex. I'll give it a good look-over in the morning.

    As regards removing the buttons, yes, but there's no option then for collar stays - leaves the points a bit floppy.

    Try www.paulfrederick.com they sell all types of dress shirts and have sales year round; all you need is your sleeve length. I for example am an 18/34 which is considered big and tall size and you normally add about 3-5 bucks to the price.

    Rex, I'm looking over the Rydale site and trying to decide on sizes (too big or too small). I'm assuming you've worn their shirts - would you describe them as 'roomy' or 'slim fit'?

    Thanks, Redleg - I'll have a good look over their site too. I'm a 17.5 - 35 but short sleeves are good too.

    I will second the suggestion for Paul Frederick. I will also note that I have a nice cotton "tattersall" pattern shirt with a straight collar from Lands End. It is regular dress shirt broadcloth, rather than the flannel-type fabric that seems to be standard in Scotland, but it does give you the pattern without a button-down collar.

    However, it is true that dress shirts in the USA usually have button-down collars, and casual shirts are even more likely to do so. The story is that the buttons were originally intended to keep the collar from flapping into your face while playing polo or other sports. So I guess Americans feel more "sporty" with this collar style. While I do own some shirts with this collar, I don't wear them with my kilt (or with double-breasted jackets), since the combination doesn't look right to me.

    Now it does seem a little funny that the shirt designed for playing polo is no longer called a polo shirt, but I think that is due to Ralph Lauren's marketing department.

    But don't be afraid of wearing your "polo" shirt, or a turtleneck, or other shirt that you feel comfortable in. I find the kilt works well with a variety of shirts, depending on the occasion and setting.

    i recently purchased two shirts from the UK. It appears this company has access to Google Maps.

    https://hollandscountryclothing.co.u...ttersall-shirt

    Ordered this shirt and one other both in a size 17.5. i am 5ft7in. and am rather barrel chested with a 46 to 48 chest. The Hoggs of Fife shirt fits quite comfortably although the sleeves are a little long for me. Two shirts delivered to Canada was $151.05. Not cheap, not that expensive either, especially for a well made shirt in 100% cotton. Also very comfortable. Just thought i'd put one more option out there. Also dear Padre, did i see a sgain dubh tat on your right leg?

    Although i am still collecting the appropriate additions to my kilt closet i have been giving a lot of thought about what i want to wear and where i want to wear it. For myself, with all the information i have collected on the forum and received from other members, when the day arrives; if i look in the mirror and like what i see, probably good to go. One large step for me, one small step for kiltdom. You're way ahead of me there, but i think the mirror is still your best critic.
