Looong sleeves, tight in torso

Reviewed by KR from Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, December 9, 2014
As others have mentioned, this shirt does have extraordinarily long sleeves. I got a medium, which they specify is size 8 - 10. In Jones of New York clothes, which are supposedly true sizes, I wear size 12--but I often wear small in shirts of other brands, sometimes medium. I'm tall for a woman--5'9"--with a slender build and wide shoulders, but even on me the shirt is two-and-a-half inches too long in the sleeves. The shoulders fit, yet it's snug in the torso and flares out at the hips. Buttoned, it looks like one of those skintight, button-up shirts popular these days (2014), so maybe some people will like the tight fit. There's kind of a workaround for the sleeves if you fold the cuff over and then button it--it will look somewhat like cuff links. The texture of the fabric is very fine and crisp, with good opacity--this is the shirt's best feature. Nice workmanship. I do not find the buttons difficult to do up, as some others do. Ice pink is a very light, pretty shade. If you don't like snug button-ups, I suggest you get the next size up and try the cuff workaround. Hope these details help someone.
