Excellent Casual Shirt
on January 29, 2013
I purchased one, and then after it arrived I purchased another in different color. These are excellent light to mid weight casual shirts, well designed and well stitched. A few comments about what I read in some prior reviews which I personally found to be not exactly accurate.
One reviewer wrote that these shirts wrinkle a lot. These are not wrinkle-free shirts. They do need some ironing after washing, but in my experience they wrinkle no more than regular cotton dress shirts.
Another reviewer wrote that these shirts run one size larger. This is subjective. I purchased an XL, and it was comparable to most other casual XL shirts I have (such as Polo and Dickies, for example). There are definitely smaller XL shirts out there from some makers. In fact, I recently purchased a similar looking shirt from Old Navy, and their XXL was comparable to this XL, but I believe it was Old Navy which ran smaller. Note that this is 100% cotton, and it will shrink a little. It may or may not be larger than an XL you are used to, you just have to try and see.
Another reviewer mentioned that these are light-weight summer shirts. To me they are just a little heavier than typical dress shirts. I personally wouldn't wear them in the summer. For me this is perfect weight for fall, winter and spring, but not for summer.
I'd also like to note that the actual color appears to be a little (not significantly) darker than on the images. I thought I noticed this with both shirts I purchased (chambray blue and denim blue chambray).
