Found them by chance browsing through Amazon Buy Vip, Amazon's spanish clothing outlet.  They weren't expensive either (less than 100 ), but unfortunately they've sold out. The link below is to the maker's store, but you'll have to pay full price (200 )  :-\

I think they would be popular with pimps. .

Just what are you suggesting, Mr B???  ;)

 Admiral Harrington in Sainsbury's for 40 . It looks like a quality item and has the proper open umbrella effect on the back . Is a heavier feel than the Baracuta item and has a lovely lining. .

Does it hang a bit funny though Simon? Doesn't seem to be that elasticated around the waist.
Have you eyballed it in the flesh? If so what is the cut / sizing like?

If you ooze masculinity, like some of us do, you have no reason to fear pink.

I really couldn't fault it Mutley. It fitted me like my Baracuta's but obviously is a fraction of the cost . It actually seemed better finish than a Baracuta too , it is more like the Ben Sherman Harrington which happens to fit me better than a Baracuta but also even half the cost of the Ben Sherman . .

Maybe Baracuta are a wee bit overpriced now. . ::)

I like the Smedley-ish vibe and colour of this Paul Smith top, but the the prices are also smedley-like  :-\

I like that too, GS. The 4th button is a nice touch.

I'm making some knitwear at the moment which is also four button. There is however no need to extend the placket so far. Much nicer if the buttons are just closer together rather than half way down your chest. IMO of course.  ;)

On the subject of 4 button knitwear, I'm really drawn to this, but will have to take a gamble that they still have it in my size when they have their Summer sale:
