The result: Rivet & Thread, our limited-edition heritage denim collection of small-batch styles inspired by the timeless treasures they unearthed. We like to think of this collection as a loving nod to our roots. Take this totally essential denim shirt, for example—it's already worn in to perfection for you.

Rivet & Thread Workshirt

Rivet & Thread Workshirt is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual Details I tried this shirt on in the store and liked it a lot! The fit was slightly different than what I'm used to at Madewell. I usually wear an XS in their buttondown shirts, but this one fit me best in a small at the shoulders and through the body. The sleeves were a little too long in this size, though. I really loved the details. The shade of blue on this denim shirt is great and the details make this one really unique. There's even a large interior pocket in a contrasting fabric on one side, making it great to wear as a (very) light jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pocket structure, buttons and stitching. Not your ordinary jean shirt. Looks great tucked in and belted or layered under a sweater or puffy vests. Fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shirt - was complimented the first time i wore it I was eyeing this shirt and when i went on sale, i snatched it up. I have a messy, casual style, but this shirt makes me put way more put together than anything else I own. The first time i wore it, my brother-in-law who doesn't notice much, told me that i looked great! I also own a couple of Madewell western shirts which i love, but this shirt has a slightly more refined look. I hope they keep producing it in varied washes like some other the other chambray shirts they carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, Yes, Yes! I have been considering buying this shirt for a few months and finally I purchased it. I am the type of person who would rather spend a hundred dollars or so on one great shirt than buy several pretty good shirts-- and I chose will with this shirt. It looks and feels great on. The color and texture are fabulous. The cuffs and pockets are wonderful too. I highly recommend it (btw if I had a problem with the product I wouldn't hesitate to write about it!). I am 5'8" and wear a size 12. I ordered the shirt in a large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking shirt- but beware if you are tall or large chested! This is a really great shirt, but as I am finding as a new Madewell customer, your clothes are pretty much designed for women with short arms, legs and no chest- I'm keeping the two shirts I bought (disappointingly, they went on sale 2 days after I received them-ugh!) because I do love them- will have to wear open with a t underneath and sleeves rolled... Recently went to your new store in Westfarms, Farmington, Ct so I could try a few things on I liked online and found the same to be true of most of your clothes. Would be nice if you offered your jeans in a longer length!
