Who actually walks around with a giant alligator embroidered across his breast?

The last of my high school shirts are starting to go. What would be a good thrift store in Manhattan or Brooklyn where I could get well-sewn men's cotton shirts with a plain, subdued appearance? I am not a "fashion-forward" sort of person; think Goodwill, not Buffalo Exchange. I like deep solids or very subtle patterns, perhaps accomplished in the weave of the fabric rather than by dying. Removable collar stays would be great; they make laundry so much easier.

Interestingly enough, the Goodwill around 89th and 2nd Ave comes closest with their men's pants. There are just racks and racks of nice wool pants with half-linings and neat seams and even some suspender buttons. But somehow they have no good shirts.
