Shrunken Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Gingham Check

Shrunken Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Gingham Check is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall Shirt Okay so, Madewell shirts usually run large for me, so this time I bought an XXS (I'm 5'2, 115lbs) because 1) like I said, Madewell always runs large and 2) anything ex-boyfriend means it's made to be roomy. This XXS was actually an extra, extra small! So it fit me more like a regular button-down, not slouchy as it is marketed to fit. Still, I love it. It's soft (not terribly warm), the cut is great, and the colors are pure and deep. I wore it to Thanksgiving with the family with dark blue skinny jeans and black Chelsea boots and felt good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall for this one Madewell plaids are iconic but, still, I hesitated on this gingham print. Eventually, I realized that I needed it in my life - what's not to need? Those colors are so rich. As a layering piece it add depth and on it's own with dark jeans, it's just fancy looking. Gold POPS with this color combo. Loving it with white pants as a transition into fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall Layer ISO of the cutest flannels to curl up in for the fall! I love this shirt! I have very big athletic shoulders so I could've worn a Large in this, but the medium is just fine! It's very soft and cozy. Will be a go to for my fall outfits for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I'm loving the shrunken boyfriend fit this year! I'm 5'3" and often the button downs are too long for my frame. This fit is perfect on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute plaid button down Most of Madewell's shirts run fairly big, but this XXS fit like an XXS. I'm 4'10" and usually wear petites, so the fit really works for me. I love the material too. It can be dressed up (I wore it for a pretty important meeting at work) or work with jeans. I love the color combo for fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from quintessential fall Nice fall-y colors - the shirt is more red than burgundy in person. Also, it fits pretty true to size - oversized like shown in the model photos. I'm 5'3" and 115lb and got the XS. I think I could've sized down if I wanted it to be more fitted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shrunken but a little boxy The shirt is a little bit shapeless, so not extremely flattering. Can be tucked in or worn open to help this. Still recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little shorter than expected I loved the pattern of this shirt, but didn't try it on in the store before purchasing online. I'm 5'10" with a long torso and got a Medium, and while it's a flattering fitted shape, it hits a little shorter than I would've liked... just hits at that strange length that looks a little weird not tucked in. Madewell, please include the length of the shirts for online purchases!!! This would be super helpful information to have, especially on final sale items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish sizing was more accurate I love the print and style of this shirt, but bought it Final Sale and am disappointed in the sizing. I am a consistent XS in Madewell clothes, but this shirt is quite small in the shoulders and chest. I know it is a "shrunken" style, but that should just mean that it isn't a boyfriend fit -- sizing should be consistent with other Madewell clothes. I recommend sizing up if you want to take a gamble and order this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I like the flannel. This one is just a little smaller and boxier than one I would normally go for since I prefer them to be a little looser and longer. Good quality I just don't love the fit at all. Wish I could return but oh well.
