    Some modern Nylons are OK - but I would love that shirt in cotton!

    Cabelas has that shirt in a good poly/cotton blend (65/35 ratio with I believe the 65% being cotton) And in assorted colors and also offer tall sizes; and in both long and short sleeves But it's nowhere near that cheap. www.cabelas.com/category/Mens-Safari-Shirts/104029380.uts The Safari II is all cotton and has additional pockets.

    Not a bad deal but remember postage is £4. Takes it up to prices i have seen in the shops.
    Would buy one but I cant stand the "oh its only £8" plus extortionate postage...

    They have them on the shelves at sports direct, if I was you I would go for a bigger size than you need, they are really tight in the shoulders and upper arms.

    These arrived today, reasonable shirt worth 8 quid but way too small, i normally take between L and XL so i ordered XXL......much too small all over, arms, shoulders, gut,........not good so going back.

    To be fair, the shirt was ok and the qualitywas certainly good enough for knocking about in the woods, garden, fishing etc and thats all i would use it for.

    However the sizing is VERY small, infact i don't think i've ever seen sizing so different from anything else, it was that bad i thought it may have been labeled wrong.

    If you're tempted, go up two sizes.

    I have a couple of them, however I bought them when they were £10. Would not have paid the original price (if they were ever sold at that) but I do like the long zip pocket, it's where I stash my mobile phone.

    I remember when nylon was nylon, sweaty and uncomfortable. Thing have changed, this shirt drys a lot faster than cotton.
