Rated 5 out of 5┬áby SarahP Great shirt, Sizing depends on height!
Just wanted to write a review to help others out with sizing! I am 5'8" 130 lbs and originally ordered this in an XS after reading a lot of the reviews, many of which said to size down. However, after trying out both a size S and XS, I ended up returning the XS. The length of the smaller size was just shorter than it should have been and the sleeves were tighter (not as loose as they look on the model). The size S is a perfect fit for me, and the sleeves are not too tight like they were with the smaller size. I can cuff them now with no problem and they look great, not tight like they did with the XS. Overall, this shirt looks great on, is very comfortable, and works for a lot of different outfits. I've been wearing it nearly every day since I got it! Definitely recommend, but I'd say if you are of average/tall height, order your normal size! Hope this review helps some other tall gals out there. :)

I love this shirt, it is so comfortable and goes with so many different outfits. I love how i can dress it up or down and even to work. It does run big so size down. I'm usually a small and i had to return it for an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Char28 perfect summer alternative to silk
This was my first madewell purchase and it was completely worth the shipping and Canadian customs duties. So much so that I'm already planning to order this style in the blue plaid.
It can be tricky to fit into button-ups with a larger chest (I'm 5'7, 145 lbs and wear a 34DDD bra) so I gravitate towards looser fitting styles to eliminate gaping at the buttons.
Medium was perfect for me; maintains the beautiful structure and flowy silhouette but does not dwarf me.
I love the soft cotton fabric. This will be great for warmer days and so much easier to care for than silk.

I love roomy tops and this one is perfectly so. I appreciate the slimmer sleeves and how the stripes go in a different direction on them. Another thing I really liked on this top is the thick yet soft fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby tpa217 Best shirt of all time!
This shirt is perfect! Goes with anything and can wear anytime. Extremely comfortable, excellent quality and fit (I'm usually a S and I got a S in this shirt as well). Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby BillyJoel Obsessed with this shirt!
I love the way this shirt drapes, especially half tucked as shown on the model. It is over-sized in the most wonderful way, a little boxy, but super flattering - especially for a gal who is small chested like myself. It's really fresh for Spring, and is super comfortable. It runs on the big side - I am 5'5 and about 110 lbs, and the XXS fits perfect. I want this shirt in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby KJProt surprisingly flattering!
As much as I love clothes with a boxy fit, trying to get them to work with my curvy figure is difficult (If it helps, I'm 5'10" and 160lbs). Ordinarily I wear a size small in Madewell shirts because I like them to be a little fitted, but I made an exception this time and got a medium. The fit is perfect and drapes similarly to what is pictured on the model, even with my bust. Like other reviewers have noted, the sleeves are rather slim, but choosing your normal size will give you enough room to roll them if you want. The fabric of this shirt also has a very subtle herringbone texture along the stripes. A lovely detail!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby EmmaMarieW A Great Classic! Consider Trying Out Various Sizes
I love this shirt! It can go with a lot of different looks as a layering piece but also stands out on its own. It's also super comfy and flattering. I'm 5'2" with a 30DD chest and bought at size XXS. It looks great with a midituck or untucked despite my height. I will say that the sleeves might be tight for people with either broad shoulders or bigger arms. It is more like the armpit area that is tight. It fits fine for me, and I did go a size down, so perhaps that is why. But it is something to consider when trying on different sizes. Also the lines are a bit darker up close than I realized, but from farther away the shirt looks more pictured. However, despite these minor things, I still give this shirt such a high rating because it's a durable fabric and a classic style worth keeping!

This shirt is super soft and great for casual days. The length of the sleeves and the fact that they're more fitted around my arms balances out the oversized look. Got it on sale so it makes me even happier! Would recommend.

so good. everything about this shirt it perfect. very male inspired, looks great with skinny jeans but also mini skirt (leather mini...). its the perfect balance for a perfect outfit. like other reviews, owners of this shirt do not want to take it off. i agree.
the shirt is a little boxy, and if you are not into that, you may not like it...but get into it, it's awesome.
