Cheap dress shirts for mess kit

After most mess functions my dress shirt is on the way out, and it's rare that it lasts more than two. I am now struggling to find dress shirts with the following characteristics:

Normal collar (not that wing rubbish)
Black studs (exposed)
No frill / pleating

Anyone know a good supplier? My last mess do involved me cobbling together bits and bobs from various shirts!

Go to an RN/RM/RAF kit store. Golfball shirt for £14, fused front so you never have to starch it. You need to make the holes for shirtstuds yourself though.

Marks and Sparks usually have a good choice of rugby/high jinks drinking shirts that'll pass for teh real thing

You could always pinch one - that's cheap!

I am locking this thread for two reasons:

1. There is already a 'Dapper Clothing' thread for this stuff.

2. We are Officers. We do not have 'cheap' clothes. We may have inexpensive ones.
