Product Details
There's something both utterly modern and old-school charming about this wear-everywhere piece. (It probably has something to do with the dapper oversized fit.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by dressed up or down--perfect! I am so glad I got this shirt....it truly is the perfect denim wash, can be both casual, thrown over a tank/tee or tucked into high-waisted black jeans with heels to spiff it up. Like so many things Madewell, I purchased this to replace a much-loved denim shirt that I owned for a decade. When the question comes up, "Where will I ever find one I love as much as this one?'...most times the answer is Madewell. That's saying something, right there. March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It Truth to tell, I had to send it back for a size large (I had ordered the medium due to the reviews which said how huge it runs). The medium did fit me, but in order to get the boyfriend fit I wanted, I decided to exchange it for the large, which is my usual size in Madewell clothing. The color and fabric seemed very satisfactory, though, and, as I am still waiting for my large size shirt to arrive, I can't wait to wear it a lot this Spring. March 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love I have several chambray shirts from jcrew & madewell but, I LOVE this one. It's longer in the back which is great and the sleeves are long too. A few of my jcrew ones the sleeves are too short and can only be worn rolled...but this shirt looks great either way :) I'm 5"7 and 110 and the small fits great March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE color to get I would wear this every day if I could. I usually prefer darker colors, but the fade on this is unique, and pairs well with everything. I was surprised to discover that despite the light color, this hides stains well, at least coffee stains. For reference, I'm on the petite side 5'2'', 100 lbs and ordered the XS. I was able to wear this shirt until I was 7 months pregnant and afterwards, it was the perfect shirt for that post-preg belly. For my frame, it's slightly more oversized than on the model pictured, but still looks great and is so comfortable. If this came in petite or xxs, I might also consider getting it so I could get the fit as shown on the model. If you can only get one chambray, this is it. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable staple Button ups are my favorite things and I have been looking for the "perfect chambray" shirt for a while as my other ones are either too boxy or not flattering. This one is appropriately named and I wear it often because it is exactly what I've been looking for - a nice fit, interesting wash, and goes with everything. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and color Very comfortable and casual chambray shirt. I imagine that the more I wash it, the softer it will become. I've purchased several chambray/denim shirts from Madewell, and they are always awesome and versatile. The light wash on this shirt is perfect for Spring. The only thing that surprised me a bit was how long the back of the shirt is, however, it didn't really bother me. March 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt! I'm literally wearing the shirt as I write the review (this was unplanned, I swear). It's a great, faded color, not quite as washed out as the photos make it appear. It was a bit stiff at first but has gotten softer as I've washed/worn it. I'm 5'4'', 115 lb and the size XS fits perfectly in the shoulders with a nice, loose boy-style cut. March 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by versatile and stylish shirt! I got this shirt on sale. Definitely worth every penny! Very stylish and can be dressed up and down. Goes with almost everything. I am 5'8" 135lb and usually a Medium (or size 6) in Madewell sweaters (tops), but the small in this fits perfectly and has that loose look. I want a second one, but the darker one is sold out by now... February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfy and versatile! I love this shirt - it's great for dressing up or down. February 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by super comfortable and versatile great purchase, goes with anything, super comfortable, a bit expensive for a button down, but luckily i will get a lot of use out of it. sizing is true, no need to get a size up, this fits loose without looking sloppy. January 31, 2014
