Rated 4 out of 5 by Authentic nearly perfect but . . .
I had this shirt on my wish list for a while. I purchased it to go with my Signature sable skinny jeans. However, when I took it out of the bag there was a ticket attached with a warning that colour( indigo dyes) might transfer. I decided to wait until I washed it by hand in cold water with white vinegar before I wore it as planned. Instead I wore it with blue jeans and underneath a chocolate coloured cashmere pullover from my own wardrobe.
This is a beautiful high quality shirt. I am particularly partial to Glenn plaid and to navy blue, which is my favourite colour for garments.The material is substantial. Bean did a good job in matching the plaids--a huge bugaboo for me. I hate unmatched plaids I think it diminishes the perceived quality of a garment. I purchased my regular size, which is 0. The shirt is slim but not fitted, just as the description tells you. On my slender frame it borders on slightly relaxed. My only problem with the shirt is the top button which when buttoned is not comfortable. I have a slender neck? This is not a big enough issue for me to return it, as I would never button it anyhow. I prefer to wear a neckerchief casually knotted in the open neck in colder weather, as a type of ascot, although not as formal. Hence I did not give the item 5 stars. I think I am pretty standard in my sizing, and I really appreciate that Bean Signature does not use vanity sizing, as many competitors do! I abhor vanity sizing. I could go on, but I will get off my soap box before I get myself into trouble;-).
I see that what remains in this item is only the 0. For information purposes I am a smidge under 5'4" and weigh a smidge under 100. I have a petite well-proportioned frame. I am neither short- waisted nor long-waisted. On me the shirt looks great un-tucked poking out beneath a sweater.
I know for a fact there are scant few left in the 0, so if you are at all inclined now is the time to charge and send!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveArt love this shirt !!!
I am 5 foot tall and wear between size 2-4. I have broad shoulders and am flat chested. Size 4 fits me perfectly, I mean, absolutely perfect everywhere including the length. It is very flattering. It's a more fitted style, but there is a good room for movement. I just ordered my second one in the same color, weathered brick. Great on its own or layered. This brick color goes especially pretty with Signure ponte knit blazer in raison I purchased recently. Great sale price!

This is in reference to the plaid style. Fits me well, like the model pictured. The shirt is long for tucking in on my 5'2" frame , but it's manageable. It also looks great worn unbuttoned with a white v-neck tee. I have received admiring compliments, and I enjoy the comfort of the shirt as well. Love the menswear look. Quality product as well. I ordered the smallest size and weigh about 105, with few curves.

I usually wear size 10 but read previous reviews and ordered 12. Fits very well; slim yet not tight. Nice weight for late fall wear. Classy dark color...never could wear darks well until gray-silver started creeping into my hair. Now the contrast looks sharp. The only challenge is ironing...the shirt runs heavy on wrinkles even from the dryer. Steam iron required and slow, patient ironing necessary, but worth it for a great looking and wearing shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJMAMA Hip, fits great
Love this shirt so much I'm writing a review for the first time. I only wish it also came in black. Wore it to work and felt stylish, urban, and comfortable. The fit is great, I wear a DD and usually have to add an extra hidden button to avoid peek-a-boo bra, but not with this one. A roomy, yet tailored size 6.

Rated 4 out of 5 by djm100 Order up ... at least one size
I typically wear size 8, but upon suggestions in reviews, I ordered a 10. . Cut very small - even the shoulders were snug - which rarely if ever happens. Not sure about shrinkage, so sending it back and getting a size 12. Hope it fits well because I really like the shirt.

I am usually a size 10 and ordered a 12 and 14. The 12 fit the best for me. It is fitted but not too much. can still layer a cami underneath. Love the dark navy color. Length is really good. Just wish it had a tad of stretch in it.

Love this shirt except it runs small!! I usually wear a 6 so I ordered an 8 so it would be slouchy......could have used a 10. It is very slim fitting but great quality and the perfect chambray color. I bought it in the blue so it would go with everything.
