Rated2out of5byTheLanterneRougefromA swing and a miss.I so wanted to adore this and get the matching track jacket, but alas, it was not meant to be.
First off, the back is mesh and is really see-through. I don't like the way that looks.
Secondly, this fits more snugly than other Brooks shirts. I felt that it was a bit constricting. I didn't like it enough to order a larger size and roll the dice to see if that would fit. For reference, I'm a size 8 and ordered the large. It technically fit, but it just didn't look great. The hem didn't fall low enough for me, and if you raise your arms and the hem falls down, it just looks dowdy and unflattering. Perhaps I'm too tall for this shirt. Short gals may want to give this one a try.
I also don't think that the design was particularly flattering. It just made my shoulders look super broad, and I have an average body frame.
The fabric has a nice, light weight to it and looks like it'll wick moisture quickly (definitely in the back which is mesh!).
This shirt has a cute pattern, but the negatives outweighed the positives. Too bad! It's going back.
