    Cut the collar off. Cut the sleeves off. Perhaps if your insane you do both

    I usually just get Lucky brand or Levi's from Amazon. The one in my avatar is a Levi one... but I don't think I've worn it in a year or two.

    Women's section on Amazon. Search for blouses.

    If it's good enough for Robert Plant or Prince, you know you're golden.

    This style and these two colors are my thing.
    The western style is cool, but the intricate patterns and colors can clash with you’re strap/guitar. Things can look different under stage lights.

    Yeah, I get these ads too.

    I think they're really cool but with my build (or lack thereof) I'm sure they would not quite look the same as they do in the ad...


    @cragginshred

    I've gone to department stores like Dillard's, Macy's, Nordstrom, JCPenny, etc. - or discount places like Gabes and TJ Maxx - and whatnot and find their clearance racks with $10.00 shirts that are "out of season" or "out of style" (hence the clearance) and find something with a pattern - I'm not the "star" in the band I'm in and being "showy" is OK, but it has to be kind of "tasteful" and somewhat "reserved" as well - so I go with subtle patterns that are unusual enough that it's not really a "work shirt".

    Nordstrom has some great shirts but they're pricey. You can't go wrong with black (either one of these would look good with jeans):

    I like this one but it's probably a love it or hate it shirt

    What I need to do is grab some dashikis. They could be my trademark, kinda like SRV's hat or Angus's schoolboy look.
