Central Shirt in Gingham Check

Central Shirt in Gingham Check is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for fall in the south! I ordered this shirt in a size xs and the fit is great . I wear an xs or s usually but bc of the review online I opted to size down . I think it would have worked out in either size though. I'm 5/4 135 lbs and pretty curvy around the hip area. If you plan to wear this top with leggings I'd recommend getting your usual size bc it does have a tapering effect at the bottom. This top has a boxy relaxed fit but still true to size in my opinion. The fabric is wonderful . lightweight ,soft and cozy . It's definitely a thinner flannel material but that works great for me since I'm in the south and it doesn't get very cold here . Great fall staple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt I love this soft flannel shirt. Black and grey, not navy. It fits true to size and it's an oversize fit so if you are in between sizes go down like I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft & forgiving This shirt feels like the softest pajamas. The cut is perfect to hide any number of flaws! I wish Madewell would make a few more variations on color & print! I would buy them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Central Shirt I own a few of these central shirts now and this one definitely fits like the rest. However, the other reviewer is correct that this is a flannel type shirt. I personally love that for fall! I also agree the colors are darker, but I love that too. Other than that, this shirt is the same cut as other central shirts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boxy to the nth degree Depending on the shape of your figure, this shirt might not work. I'm an hourglass shape, and no matter how much I tuck this shirt in I feel like I'm fighting with a lot of material around my waist. I'd even sized down to an XXS from my normal XS, but it feels like it only looks great on me if I'm wearing a heavy cardigan over it to weigh down the boxiness...but I live in Southern California and that's not a dependable option. It's a shame because I like the dark gingham check, the material is breezy but durable, and the one workable outfit I made with the shirt was so amazing that I would totally wear it as my winter uniform everyday. But I can't, so it has to go back...unless it goes on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flannel fabric and much darker colors in person Wanted to love this as I'm a sucker for anything gingham/checkered. Just note that the fabric is flannel, so you're looking at just two seasons of wear. And the checkered colors are actually dark gray and black -- hard to see that in the pictures as it looks a lot lighter. As for the fit, I ordered my regular Madewell size, XS. It fits well in the bust and arms, but the back is so poufy, you must tuck in the shirt all the way around or you may look like a walking boxy pillowcase. Still, I think I'm keeping it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flannel love Loved the idea of a short sleeve flannel. Ordered my usual size m and needed to return it for a small. The small is perfect! Can wear it tucked in, tied at the waist with my high waisted jeans or hanging loose.
