    Screen Accurate Shirt

    So, I've been looking to purchase my first SA Indy shirt. I've searched the internet for pics, reviews, screen comparisons, etc. Today I ran across the pic below while doing a google image search, comparing an Adventurebilt, an older Todd's, and a more recent 2012 WPG. All sizes appear to be mediums from what I can tell. I gotta say the WPG looks really good. I think I may have to pull the trigger and get one, gotta start somewhere. As much as everyone praises the NH version, it is just too expensive in my opinion, when there are so many other options to try. My prerogative at this point is that I need to do a hands on assessment. You can only tell so much from a pic. Anyhow, thought I would share, as there does not seem to be any recent WPG pics out there. Let me know what you guys think.

    It's not amazingly accurate for the film, the pocket flaps are off for one, and the cuffs are smaller, and the angle of the collar, and the button point on the epaulette...But it's more than decent for a "close enough" shirt, and if it was cheap enough, I'd consider it as a viable option....

    My favourite choice would be Azuma...Who makes the best shirts I've seen for Indy....But.....He only makes a few, and while they're cheap when he sells them, getting one after the sale is always a little more expensive....Failing Azuma, perhaps Magnoli is second for me....But Adventurebilt would probably be a decent choice too....

    Incidentally, in the cheaper range, I think the Todds recently have been rather good....But since they do change sometimes it's often hard to know which version you'd be getting....They're cheap as well though.....

    Have you considered the Wested shirt as an option?

    I have one- I've had it for about ten years and it's held up well. I'm not overly picky on details when it comes to screen accuracy, so I can't say how close it is.

    I see the Magnoli has gone way up in price since I bought one. I own four (white, black, gray and French blue) and I love the custom-tailored look.

    Update:
    Finally got a reply from the guys at Adventurebilt. They're working on a new batch of Indy shirts right now. If anyone is interested you should shoot them an email and let them know. They can email you as soon as the new batch is ready. Also, I pulled the trigger and ordered the WPG. Will post pics when it comes in.

    WPG shirt arrived today. Gotta say I'm impressed. The material is super thin, as you would expect with an Indy shirt. Color looks great. Fits perfectly and not baggy at all. Tail is long, but not a problem. Posting pics below.

    The shirt is nice but I'm struck by how much you look like young Harrison Ford. Nicely done!

    Thanks for the compliment! I didn't realize the comparison with the poster in the background. The brim of the hat cuts of Harrison's face in the same way as it does mine!

    Hi!
    It's very difficult quest for the shirt but very interesting. ( Well sorry for my awfull English)
    The wpg got a fantastic look and very close exept the grey color when it's brand new. But after some months, it's look very great.
    And there is the pocket pen, so perfect for a Raiders shirt!

    At left , the adventurebilt ( that i don't know), looks very good for the color.
