Nice styling; a few problems

Reviewed by Lather and Rinse from Northern California on Tuesday, October 8, 2013
I ordered a few of the white version. The darts, color, and placket are nicely proportioned. Before washing, I tried on the shirt and noticed that 1) the sleeves were far too long, and 2) the fabric was lightweight and looked a little sheer in white. However, I realized that washing and drying might shrink the sleeves and tighten up the weave, so I gave it a go. Afterwards, the shirt seems denser and less sheer -- happy with that. The sleeves are still at least 1 1/2 inches too long (and I have long arms). I can easily shorten them with a cool sewing trick, but the fact remains that the sleeves are overly long. Out of the dryer, I also encountered problem 3: This shirt WRINKLES (at least my white versions). I removed it at exactly the right time, but it still needs serious ironing. Then again, it's not advertised as wrinkle-resistant.

I still give this 4 stars because I love the fit and style, and I got the shirts at a very low DealFlyer price. I can sew and iron, so the drawbacks are not huge for me. However, I won't order more unless it goes under the mega-DealFlyer knife again soon.
