by palousefromStylish for hiking or workI never spend this much on shirts, and normally I hate the 3/4 sleeve look on me, but I love the look and feel of this shirt so much I bought it in two different colors. The shirt is just the right cover for a chilly air conditioned office or a day on the trail, and the cut of the shirt and hemline are very flattering. I took it on vacation and knew that depending on what I paired it with, this shirt would cover me for dinner at any style restaurant we chose. The white in particular is pretty translucent, but I wear a contrasting cap sleeve tee underneath most shirts, even polos, so no problem here. When laundering, I throw it in the dryer for just a few minutes, then hang to dry; no ironing necessary, and the shirt looks good enough for the office. Since I've never fully dried it in the dryer, I'm not sure what shrinkage there might be. I love the lightweight feel, the cut, the softness of the fabric, the flattering look (feminine but not too girly or youngish for this 50-something), the colors and the adaptability to different settings.

by ultrarunnerfromGood Casual ShirtThe textured fabric and the buttons are of such good quality so I found the shirt to look more interesting and attractive "live" than in the product photos. Really nice for casual wear. One should be warned that the white shirt is very translucent, requiring a tank or cami underneath. My only complaint about the fabric is that despite looking and feeling great, it does require ironing, making this shirt inconvenient for travel use.
