Rated 5 out of 5 by versatile shirt love it, it can be casual wear or formal, and the material is all cotton January 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A little on the sheer side - otherwise, a staple! This shirt is, as other reviews have indicated, a little sheer. Besides this unfortunate feature, this shirt is a total classic. The buttons, the pocket, it's pretty much perfect. Bought three of em. July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Aptly named This shirt really is an essential wardrobe piece. It's very versatile and I find myself almost wanting another so I can always have a clean one in rotation. I'm 5'5", 138lbs, and fairly large chested (32DD) and I ordered my usual size, a medium. It's a perfect fit. I especially like the length. Longer shirts tend to make my legs look short, so I'm glad that this shirt is on the shorter side. The one thing I was mildly disappointed with when I got this shirt in the mail was the buttons. In the photo (on my computer and phone at least) the buttons appears to be a warm yellowish brown tone, like yellow cedar. But in real life they're a cooler, more muted brown. Not a big deal. I just would have preferred them the way they appeared to me online. I still would highly recommend this shirt. May 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe I love this shirt. The look, the feel. HIghly recommend. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by everyday staple This shirt is very soft and lightweight, and perfect for wearing under a sweater. Keep in mind that it's a boy shirt, so even though it's fitted, it doesn't have any darts. It does have a slightly wrinkly texture, but it feels nice on. It's made just like last year's shrunken oxford, another one of my favorite shirts from Madewell. February 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great staple! I love this shirt! Its a great staple in any closet! Lately I've been wearing mine with a black pencil skirt, black tights and leopard booties; a serious, yet fun look. I think this shirt runs large, I ordered the xs after receiving another boy shirt in small which was huge. Buy it, you will not regret it. January 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Button Color When I first saw it on the web, the color of the buttons are a little yellow, but it was white when I actually got it. It was disappointing. January 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shirt A great staple for any wardrobe. Lightweight, great quality, well made. I love the sheer-ness. Just perfect. My only beef with the shirt is its a little short for me. I'm 5' 10" and I wish it was a little longer. I'm keeping it anyways and will use for layering!!! May 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super cute boyshirt This is definitely not a girly shirt. It's got all of the boxier, manly elements that make for a great boyshirt. I'm a bit larger in the chest (34D), so I usually have a problem with button up shirts. I just ordered a size up and now it's my new throw-on staple. I recently ripped my favorite chambray button down (so devastating...) but this has slipped seamlessly into my closet rotation. It wrinkles really easily but if you're wearing it casually it shouldn't matter. I like wearing it with a cute vest, legging jeans and a pair of boots. It's right on the cusp of being maybe too expensive for what you're getting, but the wear I get out of this shirt makes it absolutely worth it. LOVE! March 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great button down--thin material I like the look and feel of this shirt, but it is a little bit thinner than I would've hoped. I have to wear something over or under it to work--otherwise, it's a great shirt! January 8, 2013
