I should have read the review before I placed an order. I bought L, but it felt like S. It only looks good from the picture. I had to return it.
This brand cuts smaller than usual. Another brand cut out from the list!

I ordered this as a work shirt. I normally wear a M, got a L, and it was too small in the bust and across the back of the shoulders (no flex room), so have returned it for an XL. The snaps are very hard to close, but I suppose they will loosen up with use and at least they won't pop open when unintended. It is well-constructed and I like the embroidery detail.
The color is absolutely NOT as shown. It's a dark loden green (and is labeled "Loden" on the tag), not the weathered tan pictured. The fabric has a waxy finish, but it says it's 100% cotton, so I am curious to see how it looks after being washed. I expected the fabric to be heavier than it is, but it's very tightly woven and should work well as a work shirt in warm or hot weather, which is what I bought it for. The embroidery is tan, as shown in the picture.
The fit is strange, too, not at all as pictured, but the surprise was that my husband liked it so well on me that he wants me to wear it into town, not for work! It's more shaped than I expected from the photo, which he likes just fine! The sleeves are a normal length, which is too long for me, but I expect to just fold back the cuffs, as I often have to do. (I am only 5'0" tall).
Overall, I hope to be able to wear the replacement shirt, but won't know until I get it and try it out. It hurts to have to pay shipping three times, and I will definitely be more cautious in the future when ordering online.

This shirt runs large and very boxy. I happen to like this type of shirt. However, if you are looking for a fitted, flatterling shirt, this is not for you. It is long and looks like a men's shirt. I use it for work. The material is nice and heavy and you can tell it is well made. It softens up when you wash it. It shrinks in the wash.

I bought the shirt to use outdoors, to keep off mosquitos and thorns. I like the canvas-feel and shape of the shirt, but wow is it small. I usually wear a large, but since the other reviews said the shirt was so small, I figured I'd go up to an XXL so it would fit over a t-shirt. I can snap the shirt if I'm wearing it by itself, but there's no way I can fit a t-shirt or even a camisole under it. If it shrinks even a hair, I'm out of luck.
