Rated 4 out of 5 by bozemangal Order a size larger
Based on other reviews, I decided to order a size larger than what the size chart gave. I am not a large person. Instead of buying a medium, I bought a large. The shirt fits nicely. The medium would have been too small for me. The material is nice and the fit is flattering. The buttonholes were tight making the shirt difficult to button at times. I had to enlarge the buttonholes. Elsewise, I found the shirt does it job well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaryFloridaDiver Way too small
I like the style and quality of the shirt, but it runs way, way too small. I usually wear a Large, but ordered an XL large expecting it to be loose and roomy for the hot muggy Hawaiian and Florida days. The XL fit like a Medium and the material doesn't budge and inch. Couldn't button it at the bust. Quality doesn't matter if you can't fit into it. Manufacturer doesn't go by normal US sizing standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alehar Refined Style with Keep you cool lightweight fabri
Happy with this short sleeve shirt. Great detail, slightly fitted, lightweight material that does keep you cool. My size L is consistent in both this and the long sleeve version but had trouble with the sleeveless (see my review of that). I've order extra of this style as its offers a tailored look, clean and crisp with style to boot. Pairs well with khaki pencil skirts, for causal lunch/dinner when the temps are high humidity. Highly Recommend

Rated 2 out of 5 by CapitolHillResident An unfortunate waste of expedited shipping cost
I ordered the pale turquoise and the lime green on June 24 with expedited shipping to be able to take them on my last-minute June 29 sub-tropical vacation.
They arrived today, June 26, I tried one on, and within a few hours I took them back to the UPS store.
The fit (XL) is much too tight to wear in a location with 85 percent humidity! The shirt is strangely very tight in some places and loose in others. In my view, it is more like a roomy medium would be.
The lowest button is too low, regardless of fit. My older-style XL fits beautifully and will serve me well. I wish I had more of *that* style.
I also agree that the buttons are very hard to get in and out of the buttonholes. I did add a second star for the nice colors.
I am really, really disappointed. Even if I had not expedited the shipping at extra cost to me I still would be very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by miamariesmom Ideal Summer Shirt
To me this is an ideal summer shirt. It's great for walking the dog and gardening. It's light weight, it's comfortable and it washes well. One thing to remember -- if you carry any extra weight around your middle, you're probably going to need to go up a size. I'm 5'6" and my weight is in the normal range but any extra goes around my middle. I usually take a medium but this shirt fits perfect in a large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by terbertnew Poor craftsmanship
I ordered two of these shirts for travel. They were fine until they were laundered. Out of the dryer, they are not suitable to wear. Even after ironing, the seams are puckered, and the shirts look terrible. This is because the seams were not properly aligned during the sewing process. Huge disappointment!

I really like the look and feel, the pockets are great, but the fit is quite large and boxy, I thought about sending it back, but kept it and decided to take it up and put darts in the back. I ordered another in the xs (and I'm not that small a person, I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs.) We'll see if it fits better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OutdoorKat Too small in back, too big in front
Great fabric, it would be perfect for travel that involves outdoor stuff. I think it would wash well in a sink and hang dry for those that don't have easy access to laundry while on the road. The color is nice too.
Unfortunately the the cut of this shirt needs help. I am on the small end of an average size woman (5'3, 130) with a decent bust (36D). I ordered a medium because I usually need the room across the bust. It's really big in the midsection of the shirt (around the waist) and way too small across the back. When I try to put my arms out straight in front of me I cannot do it as the fabric is so tight across the back there is just no room to move my arms.
The funny thing is there is plenty of room in the front along the bust, and no peek-a-boo that I often experience with button down shirts. When I looked at the shirt hanging on my body it looked like it was way too big and that I need a small. But try to move my arms and it's game over. Too bad because I think that overall it's a really nice shirt. I cannot recommend it though due to the issue with the odd fit. It's being returned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by thousandislander Plus size please
This shirt was perfect for my Australia trip but alas the XL size was too tight on me. Please consider making it in either a relaxed fit or in plus sizing. Larger ladies like to be cool and look great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Antsy Much improved, but ordered a size up
Several years ago I bought - and returned- this shirt twice. The Medium, my usual size, was uncomfortably tight in the shoulders. The Large was big, boxy and looked like a man's shirt. I wore it two times, because I liked how easily the fabric washed, dried and packed, but just was unhappy with the look. Recently, seeing that the shirt had been redesigned, I decided to try the Large again. Third time's the charm! The "remodeled" shirt fits well - still loose enough for comfort in hot, humid weather, but more fitted, feminine and flattering. I'm so glad I tried this shirt again, and look forward to wearing it in Mexico this winter.
