Rated 1 out of 5 by iwantquality Disappointing
I bought this shirt in the cirrus blue and mauve berry. The colors were pleasing. Although this shirt feels comfortable, the lining does not fit the shirt, causing bulges and puckers. After ironing, it does not stay pressed and looks horribly wrinkled very soon after donning. I was very disappointed in the quality of these shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermonter4Life Love, love this shirt
I originally bought a large but soon found out it was too big. I exchanged it with a medium and it fits perfect. The only downfall to this shirt is that you can't wear it from the dryer. You have to iron it, but that's ok with me.
Living in Vermont, some days it's nice to wear this over my t-shirt instead of a sweatshirt. I love the comfort and how warm it is! I now have this in two colors and am looking to get the third (hopefully for Christmas!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by peppermintpattie Great colors but lining shrunk
I really wanted to love this shirt. I love linen, love the colors, and thought that this lined shirt would be awesome. Think about these 2 things before purchasing:
1. After washing for the first time, the lining shrank in length - I pressed the shirt, and the lining didn't stretch back out, so when worn, the hem was being pulled to the inside causing an unsightly puckering at the bottom.
2. When linen is worn next to the skin it wicks away moisture and keeps me cool in the heat, and comfortable when it's cool out. Because this shirt is lined, the linen isn't next to the skin and therefore (for me) just didn't work the same. Whenever I wore it I was either too warm or not warm enough.
The positives: The mauve berry and dusty orange colors are muted (not clear or bright) and therefore (for me) absolutely gorgeous! The sleeve cuffs have 2 buttons to adjust for smaller wrists. It is very soft and comfortable (not restrictive).
This shirt did not seem too big - I usually wear a medium, and the medium fit fine, but because it is a 'relaxed fit' (which means the body is straight with no shaping) maybe that's why some felt it was too big. I would say the fit is identical to the Comfort Corduroy Big Shirt I bought a few years ago.
I gave this 4 stars because the lining shrunk - I didn't deduct for the linen not regulating body temperature because, after all, it is lined. Because I really love the colors, I thought about keeping them and removing the lining, but, well, that just seems silly, so I will sadly be returning these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lookingforagooddeal big big shirt
This shirt runs large and long. I am 5'3" and 115 pounds. Got the small, should have got the extra small. The lining makes the shirt wonderfully soft and warm but is a huge pain to iron. Still a great shirt and very versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Shirt runs large
This shirt came today in orange, and while the color is beautiful and the lining so cozy, the shirt is too big on me so I'm sending it back. I am 5'8", 155 lbs. and ordered a large, my usual size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanthereagain Lovely Linen Shirt
I love this shirt. I'm 5'5', weigh 133, 38DD bust. The medium fit was perfect. Comfortable, not too tight nor too loose. The colors are muted, I like that. I will wash and hang to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skysailor This is a winner!
If you have ever wanted to wear linen on a cool evening, to a backyard barbecue for example, this is just what you want. I wore a much loved heavy linen big shirt for years and lost it two years ago. This is the first time anything has come close to matching in both attractiveness and utility, and the shirt is a winner. It has more heft than the usual linen and will be a close companion this summer. I got this in the dusty orange and the color is lovely. I'm 5'6 127 lbs, 35" bust, and the small is just right
