Courier Button-Back Shirt in Gingham Check

Courier Button-Back Shirt in Gingham Check is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shirt ✔️ This shirt is even better in person than it looks online...that's a rarity in this day and age. Love the styling and the option to wear the back unbuttoned for more casual outings. The fabric is nice and substantial and Madewell nailed the perfect scale of gingham check. An instant go-to in my closet. Buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool I can't knock this shirt, the style and quality are very good, but I was expecting a little heavier fabric, just from the look the top online. It's fairly thin, making it difficult to keep it hanging straight considering you are always moving. Maybe it could use some spray starch. I love the style and the print and I went up a size from S to M so that I could be sure to wear with leggings. I have a few of these style shirts and I'm always adjusting them at the shoulders. Is it Me?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gingham Glory I fell in love with the gingham trend that has been so popular this summer. However, I felt as though many of the styles that show off this pattern just have not been for me. THEN, I saw this shirt at my local Madewell, tried it on, and fell in love. This shirt is classic--something that I'll be able to wear even after the gingham trend is gone. I absolutely love the asymmetrical collar. It assists the shirt in showing enough skin to feel comfortable in this heat, but it is also appropriate for work and does not make me feel exposed. Another thing I LOVE is the buttons going down the back. For work, its simple to have the buttons buttoned and the shirt tucked into a pair of trousers. Nonetheless, I can also unbutton a few of the buttons, tuck the front into a pair of jeans, and be ready for a day/night on the town. Sizing wise, I got a size smaller than I would in a t-shirt or a fitted blouse. This shirt is awesome. I love it. It is a new staple in my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Go-To Wow I am in love with this top. Walked into Madewell for a new basic tee and walked out with this top. I've worn it at least twice a week since I bought it. It's so perfect for California summers – light, breezy, and totally chic. This shirt is the easiest way to look effortlessly cool. I usually get a small in the courier shirts but got a medium in this one for the slightly longer sleeve (don't notice much difference in size between the couriers except for shoulder width.) For reference: I'm 5'5", 135 lbs and this hits just below my butt (but I do a half tuck in the front.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Keeper Glanced at it online, walked into Madewell store five minutes before closing, tried on M and L (usually S-M in Madewell) cause I wanted the oversized look. After trying them on, there was no hesitation in my purchase and I ended up getting the large. Perfect material for summer, and the front and back design is lovely and just what I was looking for. Definitely recommend! FYI, I am 5' 4'', and 130 lbs. Sleeves come just above my elbow and the back fully covers my bottom and hangs down a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic, Timeless Great, modern take on a button-down. This is a piece that will get worn at least 2 times a week, I'm sure (sorry in advance to my coworkers) First, this shirt is a cotton/linen blend...aka heaven. It's the perfect thickness to feel covered up, but keep cool in warm weather. The gingham check print is tres chic and timeless, allowing this piece to be a forever closet staple! I love the unsymmetrical collar. On one side, the collar tucks in, giving the shirt visual interest. The sleeves can be unrolled, rolled, or folded up. The back can be buttoned - perfect for the office, or unbuttoned - perfect for outdoor adventures. I really love this shirt, and recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shirt! I love this shirt! It's not as long in the back on me as it's shown on the model and the back buttons are really cute! I bought a Small and it fit me perfectly. For reference, I'm 5'2, 115lbs, and usually an XS-S in Madewell clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly gingham Love this top! I'm 5'3" 110lbs, xxs fits perfectly and still roomy but not too oversized. I notice with this style xxs fits much nicer than an xs. Cute summer top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is the perfect summer top that can be dressed up worn with a pencil skirt or dressed down over skinny jeans. Love the details of button back and asymmetrical collar. Just perfect!
