Snaptastic Multi-Pocket Travel Shirt
Snaps help, flaps don't
Travel? Sure, but a perfectly fine shirt for everyday wear.
The appeal here is of course the snap fasteners, a real boon if you have carpal tunnel or arthritis or both. It's not perfect -- the snaps are smaller and slipperier than most buttons -- but once I got used to them it was much less frustrating in the morning.
My only complaint is the pocket flap. To put pens and pencils or a glasses case in the pocket you have to shove the flap down inside the pocket and push stuff in front of it into what space is left. That's why I have several of the snap-front plaid shirts, although I prefer the dark solid colors. But having two pockets is sometimes useful. The "secret inside pocket" partly solves this because it *doesn't* have a flap, so it's easy to slide something like a ticket or a motel keycard into it -- and easier to get it out.
If the designers are listening, think about larger snaps and two plain chest pockets. But keep the solid colors.

One of the most comfortable shirts I have ever worn, Easy machine care. Lightweight and cool. Seems to be exceptionally well crafted. The plaid one I purchased had the pattern so well lined up and even from side to side that it had to be a gifted pro who pieced it. (my wife is a sewer, and she pointed this out to me - she says plaids are so difficult to piece and sew properly.) I love the snaps instead of the buttons.

Great Shirt at Reasonable Price - NOT Square Hem
The shirt is comfortable, fits well and is generally well made. The fabric will show some wear after several washings.
Note that there is a shirttail bottom, NOT square as stated in some of the mailings.

These shirts are perfect for the tourist / retired executive hubby. Please restock them in the larger sizes. Spring is coming and they will be in demand again. They look great and are easy care.
