Neil Chambray and Ironall on the way. Thanks @Duke Mantee for the help in sizing and nudge to get me to go for them. 
Also Hoosier for his quick service!

Paging @Duke Mantee how’s the FW tees? Are they vintage cut? Boxy with short sleeves similar to Mister Freedom or Runabout Goods? 
I like the dinosaur one that was teased on IG somewhere

I can’t narrow that down I’m afraid - their tees are in a big variety of fabrics and shapes.

If the dinosaur tee is this below, then it’s a lightweight cotton but not cut like the MF skivvy if that’s what your referring?

I've got the blue/white Big Bend tee coming my way soon.
Like Duke mentioned there's a lot of variety in terms of fit and fabric.
I have 4 tees (3 blanks and one graphic). Two are the same lot just different colors and they fit the same. The other two are different.
The armholes are't cut as high as the MF skivvy on any of the ones I have.

Ok gotcha! 
seems you both saved me some money. 
I’m quite picky when it comes to tees I prefer the boxy cut and real short sleeves. Haha

The body is definitely shorter/boxy compared to a lot of brands, but the sleeves aren't as short as the skivvy.
They're my favorite fitting tees currently alongside Warehouse.

Couldn't resist this t-shirt.  Drove across the country in 1981, including a trip to Big Bend National Park, then across the Rio Grande, and on horseback into Boquillas for tacos.  Wallet flew out of my pocket on the way back and a local chased me down on horseback to return it.  His horse was faster, thankfully.

@Broark would you be willing to post a fit shot of the FW vs MF tee?

Sure once I get a chance, I only have two skivvys and they fit drastically different.
I have a white one in large that I use more as an undershirt and a grey XL that fits like a tent. <_<

How easily can the white patch / tag be removed from the bottom of the placket on the Power Wear henley-neck tees? Always been really interested in these, but put off by how loud that is

Does the woven placket continue to the bottom of where the patch is, or is it left unfinished?

The label is sewn across the placket - looks fairly easy to remove

Thanks for the close-up, Duke. Looks like the stitching goes through all the layers of the knit as well? Doesn't seem to be anything structurally important, though…

What are the buttons made of?

No problem - yep, just unpick the stitching front and back (inside), the label is sewn onto the finished garment.

Buttons are plastic (I think)

Does anyone here have the 1833010? If so, can you confirm that it runs a bit small?
Measurements look on the smaller side for the 17.5, I found a rare size 18 that I'm thinking about scooping up at a good price.

I’d be surprised if a Neal came up on the small side - but I don’t have that exact model

The Desolation Row special (I guess that means it's exclusive to DR?) Fieldworker Trousers in cotton / linen denim is very cool...

Can’t remember if I ever posted this but I was messing around with LUTs in my photo software and I quite liked this colour effect 

It’s the utility jacket, driver shirt and garage worker overalls with custom RDT

Thanks @FAB FOUR, looking for the non-stencil khaki version.
Don't really need any new jackets right now since it's starting to heat up, so I'll hold off until next winter.

I’d love the UDT/Seal Deck worker jacket in black but without the stencil on the back…..   
love the patch on the front though
