Okay, I am now wearing the shirt, and I can tell you more about it.
First, and most importantly, it's very comfortable, but at the same time
loose enough to be functinal for movement. The color is the exact same color
as the shirts in the films. It is khaki. The shirt has sewn-down epaulets,
and long sleeves. On the back of the neck, stamped in black ink reads the following:

L Superior quality clothing
100% cotton Made in Hong Kong

But don't let the Hong Kong part discourage you. It is NOT a cheap shirt.
The material is finely-sewn and very durable and thick, but not heavy.
Like the bullwhip, it is both light, strong, and durable. Overall, a
pretty close match to the ones in the movies. Now I am satisfied that I
own a shirt that is as close to the ones in the movies as possible.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
