Flannel Oversized Ex-Boyfriend Shirt

Flannel Oversized Ex-Boyfriend Shirt is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly comfy boyfriend flannel I love a good boyfriend top, and this button down does not disappoint. It's easy to wear alone or layered underneath of a chunky sweater. It's incredibly warm and the pockets on the side are a cute (and functional) added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cozy and flattering! This shirt is amazing! It's thick and warm but flattering at the same time. I sized down and found the fit and length to be perfect, I'm short and petite. It's also a nice neutral color that goes with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm thinking about buying two! This flannel is so amazing! After reading the other review about the hidden pockets, I had to get it. Why can't they all have this?! It even looks so cute with your hands in the pockets too! I love interesting and unique details like that. I went into the store and tried it on, after purchasing it online the night before, the small was a perfect fit. The medium was to over sized for me. I'm normally a small in Madewell. I am 5'6 140 and I didn't have any issues with arm length at all like the other review. It's thick, warm, great cream/grey color, nice shape, cool detail... basically I want two. I'm a mom and want to have one to mom in and one to adult in. It's really so nice I feel like I could sleep, work, play, and go out in it!!! Very versatile

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SHORT sleeves I ordered online, so couldn't try it on before committing to a size, but based on reviews, I "sized-down" and ordered a small. I am generally a sm/med in Madewell (5'6", 129lbs), and while the body of this shirt is fine (and YES, I LOVE the pockets), the sleeves are short and that bugs me. (Hits just above my wrist bone. Maybe I just have freakishly long arms for my height? But I think they need to be about 1/2" longer.) I'm going into my local store to exchange for a Med.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves a bit short, color described Not sure if I'm keeping mine because although the flannel is wonderfully thick and soft and it's very wide in the torso, the sleeves are a bit short on me. My arms run about an inch longer than the avg arm, so it'll be great for some of us. If you're tall, expect slightly short sleeves. I'm 5'6" 130lbs and got a small. I may try a medium to see if the length will be better, but in doing so, the larger armhole will pull at the bust more. Flannel has progressive shrinkage (shrinks more than once), but I wonder if this will or if it's been treated so it won't. (When I roll up the sleeves I like the look better.) Agree with other reviewer about the color. It's not what I'd call ivory. It is a very very light grey/silver. I set my fig colored sleeveless mock neck next to this shirt and they seemed to be related. Pockets on side seams are cool but a bit high and bulky.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Half Way Oversized The shirt is "oversized" from under the breasts down. It's not particularly "oversized" in the back/chest/arm measurements though. I wear a 32C, ordered a Small and it fits (visually) in the chest area but doesn't have great ease of movement for the shoulders/back/chest. If I went up to a medium to accommodate for more comfortable movement, the body portion would be way too big, even for "oversized". The sleeves are the right length on me (5'3") so I'm guessing taller people will find them to be too short. The flannel is thick & hearty, like 5oz flannel sheets density.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best decision I've ever made-THERE ARE POCKETS This is what flannel dreams are made of, guys. I'm a flannel girl through and through. I own many of them. THIS IS MY FAVORITE and I could scream it from the rooftops. It is oversized, so order your normal size or size down if you want a little more structure. The only problem I had was that mine had a snag in it when it came in the mail- not to worry though, called customer service and they were great! Also note that it says bright ivory as the color, but it's more of a very light brushed gray almost with a tiny bit of heather detail. Here's the BEST thing. I was trying it on and all of the sudden I noticed these slits on the side... POCKETS. not just the chest pockets either... Completely ins visible but fully functional hand pockets on the sides. Honestly, could it get any better than that? If the dark gray/striped flannels have the pockets too, I might have to go back for those.. I would happily pay full price for this shirt again. If you're on the fence, go for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the style. I love the style, especially the side pockets. Here's my complaint. I'm getting a little sick of my orders being sent directly from the store. They look like they have been dragged around and abused, and it already looks "fuzzy". This is not the first time I have experienced receiving less than perfect merchandise. I am keeping this because I love it so much, and I don't feel like waiting for the whole return process thing, but I am tiring of this policy. Frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On point I hesitated to purchase this online so I went in store and tried it on and it was just as good as I hoped. I usually teeter between a small and a medium in Madewell shirts (5'5", 135lb) and the small fit perfectly and had a balance between structure and oversize fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not flattering/ very wide I thought this would be oversized in length, but it was oversized in width! So very wide, it makes a small person look large and a large person look larger. Not flattering on anyone (besides the model in the pic)
