Slim Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Chambray

Slim Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Chambray is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Chambray Love this chambray. It's the ideal style and color for a staple chambray. As with all Madewell slim fit shirts in my experience, the shoulders are just a little tight (and I have narrow shoulders). I would still recommend getting your normal size. Madewell has plenty of other chambray styles if you're looking for an oversize fit, this shirt is not the one. This is more of a classic button up fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Chambray Shirt! This one fits the bill and checks all of the boxes! Great light color, great weight, perfect slim fit (but not too slim), two pockets on front. This shirt is fabulous. Fit is true to size, if not slightly small (for Madewell sizing). I'm typically a small at Madewell but took this shirt in a size medium. Looks super cute with blue or black denim, sleeves rolled up. Will get a lot of wear out of this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect chambray I bought this to replace another chambray shirt I have I thought was not long enough. This shirt fits true to size for a most stores but I think large for madewell. I got a medium because of reviews and the slimmer fit. It fits well. Slightly oversized but flattering. I usually wear smalls and xs in madewell shirts. The color is modern. Not too washed out. It will go with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect chambray shirt. Shirt is casual and classy! Slim contour and length is attractive. The French seams and quality of sewing/stitching is excellent. Softness of the fabric is nice yet there is substance as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT The perfect boyfriend chambray shirt. I am 5'4" 115 lbs and usually wear an XS. I ordered an XS and it's the perfect mix of fitted and slouchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt! This is a great top! I am 5 feet, 115 lbs, 34B/C and the XS fits me very well. I am currently breastfeeding, so I was looking for a top that would be conducive to nursing but also is stylish. This shirt certainly fits the bill and I know I will get a lot of wear out of it! I frequently have issues with button downs ever so slightly gaping at my chest and this does not at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Chambray Shirt I waited awhile to get this shirt, because usually slim cut shirts don't work on my rather curvy, thick frame. I'm 5'3" 165 pounds and usually take a L or XL with Madewell depending on the cut of the shirt. But I had been wanting a very pale blue chambray shirt, so I finally decided to take a chance and see if it would work out. And I'm so happy it did. It's indeed a slimmer fit than most Madewell shirts, but what this means is it fits more like a petite cut would AND it skims the body closer. It is not skin tight though, so for someone like me if you order your regular size you should be good to go. The material and color are beautiful, just exactly what I wanted. Now I wish I'd gotten the slim fit white shirt, maybe Madewell will bring those back. Sure hope they do this cut in other colors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can wear with anything I love this chambray shirt! It goes with everything. I like how it fits and I like the length - can wear untucked and it doesn't look too long or tucked because it is long enough. The material is soft. It fits well because of the leaner profile. Doesn't hug in the boobs like other button downs. Because of other reviewers, I sized up to a size large. I'm normally a medium and in Madewell I'm often a small becuase of the vanity sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very slim, very nice Love the slim silhouette! It's a nice change from the oversized looks that've been so popular lately. I agree with the earlier reviewer that this shirt runs small by Madewell standards. The XXS is 14" across the shoulders, 34" at the bust and 32" at the waist -- on par with size petite 00 at many mall retailers. The fabric is lightweight but not paper-thin, warm enough for spring-summer-fall but not winter in colder climes. The wash is a bit casual, but still acceptable in a relaxed office environment if dressed up with a blazer or pencil skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, runs small. Wonderfully made shirt that will clearly stand up to a lot of wear and tear. Runs very small for Madewell, particularly in the shoulders and arms. If you have larger arms, you may want to size up.
