    I have not worn the shirt yet, it is still too hot for longsleeves. But it fits beautifully. The green color is lovely and the shirt looks just like the picture.

      The shirt is nice. It's well tailored; maybe even better than in years past. But it's lacking Boden's whimsical contrasting trim. It's one of the details that puts Boden's clothing above the ordinary. We are still in summer here so I won't know how well the shirt wears or washes for a while. Hopefully it will hold up just as well as my other Boden shirts.

      Classic Shirt

            I'm not a big fan of button front shirts since they never fit me well, but I got the blue gingham because I love the pattern. I have to say this shirt fits quite well. I'm larger in the chest and I had no problem with any gaps between the buttons. The rest of the shirt fit well, roomy, but not boxy. Definitely true to size, but if you want a tighter fit you might want to size down.

            Too tight in the bust.

                  I'm 5'5" tall, 140 lbs, and 38 (36D)-32-40 and the size 10 fit me everywhere (including my long arms) EXCEPT across the bust. If I just stood there, it looked fine, but if I moved, it pulled across the bust. The doggy pattern is adorable, but I don't think I'd ever wear it. It didn't work with the rest of my wardrobe so back it goes.

                      Classic style with with unique fabric choices. Size seems to be true, but maybe meant for a rather leaner person. I haven't washed mine yet, but the fabrics is sturdy so I don't expect a problem.

                        Typically I purchase the classics like white blouses, black or white t-shirts, blue jeans and blazers. This shirt rocked my world! The little details, like contrasting stitching inside and out in addition to the cuffs and collar . The attention to detail is exquisite. A front pocket? Oh, yes! So many compliments when I wore it to work! Thank you!

                        Every year I give this shirt a try and every year I send it back. It's awfully cute and I love the patterns/prints but the fit never works. I'm 5'9" and the sleeves are too short, I could only wear them rolled up. Also, it's tight in the shoulders. I really wish you would add some stretch to it. If I size up the body would be way too boxy.
                        So back it goes, once again...

                          I wear it to the office with casual dress code. Very fun shirt, nice color combo (I got the birds). Looks good with dark blue, red or white jeans. A bit tricky to iron when completely dry. But when it's still wet it's not that hard (trust me I hate ironing). Have to remember to take it out of the laundry before transferring wet stuff to the drier.

                            This shirt is very well made and fits perfectly. I'm 5'1" and I bought the Blue Blush Garden Bird print in a petite size. I like everything about it. The print is very nice and the shirt is made from quality fabric. I haven't washed it yet.
