I'm considering cosplaying the engineer from Team Fortress 2 and am having trouble thinking up a place that might sell a plain red, long sleeved button down shirt. Any help? Reference:

Just get a white one and buy a really strong red dye. But i also recommend trying to find a similar fabric to your shirt and buying like a small amount and a few different dyes to try out you may also have to redye them to get stronger colors (same as a second coat of paint on something) so buy different kinds and try them out on your test fabric.

Hope i helped and good luck

You can go to alot of store that'll more than likely have one. Alot of men's ware store will have an array of coloured button-down shirts. You can try Wal-Mart maybe. Go out to the mall and have a look around, you should more than likely be able to find something similar, and you can always dye one if you can't find the right colour.

Online. I googled "men's red button down shirt" and got a ton of hits. Both of these look like reasonable color matches (though I'd change the buttons):
