: : : Does anyone know where I might find a shirt similar to Indy's shirt in Raiders? It would be great if I could order one over the
: : : internet. I've tried several "adventure" clothing sellers, and I can't seem to find the exact model/color. I know the original from
: : : the movie was extremely expensive, but I'm looking for something a little more reasonable. I'm sure others have this question as
: : : well. Thanks!

: : You're in luck-and so am I. Tonight I was in the mall, and I
: : walked by a store called Structure, a fashionable men's clothing store.
: : On a mannequin near the entrance, I saw a khaki, long-sleeved button-
: : up shirt, that looked almost exactly like Indy's I went in immediately
: : and inquired about it. It costs $40, a very reasonable price. I reserved
: : one on 24-hour hold. I'm picking it up tomorrow, so then I can tell
: : you what the brand name and style number is. It doesn't have eapulets,
: : though, but it's pretty close. And it's not one of those thin dress-shirt
: : things, either. This is a thick, durable, cotton adventure shirt. I'm
: : getting it because I am aware that there is no way in hell anybody
: : outside the movie industry can get ahold of an Andre Dometakis shirt.

: 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.
