Excellent shirt, lovely color, perfect boyfriend slouch in my regular Madewell size. I think I will get a lot of wear out of it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by zoeygreen perfect weight, texture, fit
This shirt is exactly how it is described and pictured. I bought the second color after receiving one color. It will be easy to roll up sleeves in summer. The fit is loose (as stated) which is exactly what I wanted for that easy breezy summer vibe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoeB This will be my spring/summer go-to shirt
I was hesitant to order this shirt because the material was linen and I was afraid the fabric would be too rough. This linen is super-soft! Also, the blue mist is an absolutely gorgeous shade of blue. I ordered the Medium because I have broad shoulders and often have to go up a size in Madewell shirts (I'm 5'6", 120lbs, 34c). I ended up exchanging the Medium for a Small and it's still plenty roomy. Love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Belu Just Got It!!
So--I'm wearing this shirt currently and I love it! However I do wonder if it's too big for me..I am unsure if when I wash it if it will shrink a tiny bit (which would make it the perfect fit) or if I need to return it and size down...
I bought a small. I am 5'3" and about 127lb. I carry my weight in my middle so usually I am a medium in shirts but since this is made to be an oversized look I got a small. There is plenty of room in here! Which makes me wonder if if there is waay to much room? I'll ask my husband..
Other than me being curious I love it! It's soft and it feels more like linen but really looks like a warn in denim shirt that you once loved and fell apart! So it's perfect!

What is it about linen? Especially re-conjured as ‘denim’ shirts? Couldn’t help myself, got both immediately, and just as I expected, they’re awesome. Perfectly updated classics. I’m M in TTS, but always get S in ex-boyfriend, and these are perfectly relaxed, cool & slouchy as promised. Happy that the light blue is as pictured on the model. Soooo in shirt heaven right now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by elma Cute but runs very large
I ordered the small but could have gone for x small or even xx small if it was offered. It is an oversized fit but this is realllly oversized. Looks like I'm wearing my dad's shirt, not my boyfriend's.
I'm 5'6, 125lbs 34b.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kedixo great, but gets holes so fast
I love this shirt. I really, truly do. But, like another reviewer, a hole developed under both arms within two wears. I've tried to be delicate with this, but I pulled it out of the wash yesterday to find that small hole had ripped to about double its size. I'm going to keep wearing it for now, but I'm so sad, and know that it's just a matter of time now, and I haven't even had it for a full month.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CMNE RIPS EASILY
The fit and fabric of this top are beautiful and exactly what I wanted from a chambray shirt. HOWEVER, after less than a month of ownership and a few easy wears, it developed a large hole where the sleeve buttons near the wrist. ANOTHER hole just ripped at the corner near the buttons when I went to tie it at my waist. I was disappointed and expected better craftsmanship from a store called "Madewell". This has given me doubts about the overall quality of the products offered here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by xocy Ultra-Bummer
Saw the new linen products for Spring online and excitedly ran to the nearest shop and bought myself the tunic dress and the ex-boyfriend shirt, both in that beautiful, ultra-flattering-on-everyone ultramarine color. Linen is just about the coziest fabric on the face of the planet and in my mind I imagined myself getting all the linen Madewell had to offer, draping myself in it whether it was socially acceptable or not, like a female George Costanza would in velvet.
Unfortunately, after wearing the button-up twice, the shirt somehow developed a huge, gaping tear which was an automatic super bummer and now I have no idea what to do with it. So, while I do love the shirt, I can't say I can entirely recommend it. Ensconce yourself in linen elsewhere perhaps.
