Can anyone recommend a nice checked shirt?

Quite fancy a brushed cotton, checked shirt. Don't want one too thick or baggy but do want it to be warm and cosy, and slightly casual. Like this one I found on Pinterest...

The uniqlo ones are really nice. They do a great gingham check one too.

Forever 21 have some nice ones. Quality isn't bad - got two for my teenage DD while I was in the States recently. Free shipping in UK over £50

My DD bought an almost identical one a couple of weeks ago from the Levi's stand in our local department store.

The Uniqlo ones are gorgeous and snuggly.

Try menswear departments. They are more likely to have brushed cotton ones and they're usually cheaper.

I looked everywhere and couldn't find what I had in mind, then bought this from Peacocks. I bought a small (i'm size 8) thinking it would be quite oversized (which is what I wanted) but the shirt is actually quite slim fit and is just nicely loose but no where as big as I thought it would be.

I got a really nice one from Abercrombie & Fitch it's usually the last place I would shop but a friend recommended it. I also have a really nice one from Madewell.

Oh wow, lots of great suggestions, thanks all. I really like the colours on a couple of the hollister ones and will check out the other suggestions.

Many thanks all.
