Cargo Workshirt

Cargo Workshirt is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shirt Loved the look, but it seems a little large through the shoulders. The material is a little stiff. Maybe when the material softens up it will drape better. I bought a medium. Would have liked to try a small to see what happens. Adore the color and the dark buttons. It's like a canvas shirt I used to have years ago and have been wanting to find again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great everyday shirt At first, I wasn't so sure I loved this shirt after snagging it during the recent sale. But after wearing it for a day, I'm totally in love. It's oversized, which I love. So I took my regular size because it's supposed to be a bit flow-y. The color is really great on my skin type (similar to the complexion of the model.) Great shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I wear this over a tank or tee as a jacket, fabric is super soft but thick. Very stylish for daily trips to the dog park and washes great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated chic I have another type of button down shirt from Madewell that I love, so I gave this a shot too. Off the hanger, it doesn't look that amazing, but it feels great to wear and looks flattering too. I'd definitely give this a buy again if it ever goes on sale - such a steal at the sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, and very versitile Love this shirt and am so glad I bought it. I wore it all fall with a dark brown cami under it and have worn it a lot this winter with a dark brown or a golden brown long sleeve perfect t shirt under it , skinny jeans and booties. I wish I would have gotten more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get any better!! Tried one of these puppies on sale....then when it arrived, I quickly purchased this gorgeous shirt in EVERY OTHER COLOR!! Let's just say, awesome quality, nice fit, cute take on a classic I will wear for years...when I think about the price I got them for I can hardly believe it! My friends cooed over the sweet little details and even though I ordered the XS because reviews said it ran so large, had to purchase the S in the last color. Still great!! Not over the top big, just need paired with something slim on the bottom....Girls, you have to grab these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super shirt Bought one color as a gift, then another color. I'd buy one in every color if I could get them all on sale! If there is a downside, the arms could be a little longer but not a deal breaker, for sure. The fabric is butter-soft, wears and washes wonderfully. Love the placket. Looks real good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected happiness I love the other similar workshirts and kept passing these by. I would see them and think it had an identity problem- was it popover? or a shirt with a weird flap detail that was just trying to be more than the original workshirt? Then I tried it on because of the lovely gray color. And then I bought two. It's a great shirt that is reminiscent of the aforementioned, but is quite wonderful in its own way. The flap does open, sometimes unexpectedly, so beware of that. I wear a cami so I don't have any problems at work but, my work is fairly active, so it probably is situational. In any case, I am quite pleased with this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a full size bigger It's a great casual shirt. The length fits similar to the model (covers the butt) to wear with leggings. I wear a 29/30 and medium in most things at Madwell/Jcrew. I do have wide shoulders so I was completely surprised how baggy the medium was. I bought the small in green and will wear as a jacket in the Florida spring/summer/fall and as a layer over long sleeve in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort shirt! I normally wear small (5'4" 120lbs) but I bought XS based on the reviews. I love the army green color with reddish wooden buttons. Although I'm not too crazy about front shirt tail. It would've been nicer if it's buttoned down all the way. it's straight boxy medium weight shirt, plenty room to wear inner wears and wear this as light jacket. I find my sleeves are roomy but very tight on the wrists when buttoned, a little shorter than expected, maybe that's why model had them rolled up. but Overall price is good. It looks just like the photo. I'm happy with my purchase.
