Model shows it loose and tied up But I think even if I was thinner that wouldn’t be the case.
Cuts of twenty/thirty years ago fit better at my current size then today’s cut of shirts.
I have your products and other like brands of that era and cuts let you move. Today’s are for waifs without muscles etc.
Fit: This chambray has the ideal blend of loose/comfy and feminine/fitted. The area under the armpits tapers in slightly which gives you some flattering curves to avoid the total boyfriend look. There was plenty of give to raise my arms and move around. The sleeves were the perfect length and the bottom hem hit long enough to avoid the boxy look that J. Crew is sometimes guilty of.
Comfort: In the past I have had chambrays from J. Crew that feel overly stiff. Not so with this one! The material feels fairly soft and has give to it. I’ve worn this chambray on its own and under a sweater—it was comfortable both ways.
Looks: Due to the fit and neutral light blue color, this is a chambray that can pair with so many different outfits. It looks great alone or styled with a scarf. Also looks great under a J. Crew quilted vest. And my winter go-to is wearing a chambray under a cozy sweater with the sleeves cuffed.
The medium fits my size 8/ 36D wife almost perfectly. The only issue (and not overly uncommon when she wears buttoned shirts) is that it opens slightly at the chest when she lifts her arms up. It's not a deal breaker, but she has to be aware of her movements somewhat if she wears this as a shirt rather than using it to layer over a tee.
As I mentioned, the material feels great on the skin and looks fabulous as an ensemble whether it be as a buttoned up shirt or a light throw over a t-shirt. Either way, you cannot go wrong with this classic style and fit. The overall quality is good, with sound stitching throughout. However, there are issues with the less than fabulous buttons, that are borderline cheap plastic. Some of them get caught on errant threads while buttoning. Not just one hole, but several of them. I think this is quality control issue to an otherwise flawless shirt. But I'm knocking off one star for this less than perfect sewing job on the button holes.
Overall, this is a timeless piece that can be a wardrobe stable due to its versatility and multiple uses. It’s more of a warm weather shirt, though if layered would work between seasons just fine. I appreciate the fact that it’s 100% cotton, but that also means it requires a little maintenance. My wife washes and hangs it up immediately on a hanger while wet and lets it air dry. Still, it will need a tumble and spot ironing.
This shirt is kind of a fashion rendering of a work shirt (sort of like the "flight suits" that are made to wear to a cocktail party). There are bust darts (for a medium- chested wearer). There is fitting at the waist. The fabric is blue chambray, but it has been acid washed to give it an almost madras-like look and feel. All good.
Unfortunately, part of remaking this for fashion was to make the pocket vestigial. That is only 3-1/2" wide at the opening, and only 4" deep.
If this had a real pocket, or even (gasp) one pocket on each side, it would be my favorite shirt. As it is, it's what I'll wear when I want to look blue-collar flavored, but not actually do any work.
This shirt is good quality. The fabric is light weight 100% cotton and has a good texture with some visual roughness but not rough on skin.
Fit is mannish. It has darts in the back, but not in the front. Better for small busted women. I'm 36 DDD and definitely, this is something I wear as a light sun cover over a shirt. If I wear as a shirt it will gap. I got size L, and maybe going up a size would help, but the L buttons on me, and I think the cut is the issue. It's a less tailored style.
Priced at fifty dollars right now, and that's maybe high but not crazy. It's a basic short, but it has better construction than a cheapie shirt. For example, the back of the shirt has a fabric panel for shoulders, then for back, instead of just one big rectangle. Stitches on the edges are all finished, on the inside are serged. The fabric seems like it will wear and has held up to a few washings. I expect this will last. It's not high end but also not disposable.
