    I wanted a comfortable shirt that would look nice with a pair of chinos- this one is it. The fabric is soft and comfortable but it also keeps its shape. The colors are nice and strong, even after several washes the shirt has retained its brightness. I am thinking of getting it on other colors.

        Though I've been a Boden fan 7 years or so, I've merely admired the Breton tees. Last year, I opted for the essential tee instead because they are cheaper (which I do love) in tank and long sleeved versions. Recently, I acquired a long sleeved breton second hand and immediately went onto Boden website to order another. I ordered the ivory with navy stripe. These shirts have a lovely lightweight almost silky quality to them, very different from a heavy cotton. The boatneck and slim fitting arms are very flattering and will be a perfect first layer among many when the weather gets cool. Putting it on I immediately feel pulled together, great with jeans, and I plan to wear it tucked in with skirts and perhaps a belt. I will be adding to my supply of Bretons in the future. I am between a size 2 and 4 in Boden, 5' 4" 116 lbs, and this I ordered a 2 and it was perfect.

        I've bought long sleeve Breton's for several years in a row, and, I must say that this years batch are a HUGE disappointment. The fabric is flimsy, and will not be warm enough to carry me through the winter, and, I'm talking Texas winters, not North East or Mid-West winters. In past years, the style had 3 distinct buttons on the shoulder. Forget about that cute touch, as this is the plain vanilla variety. This is more in line with the Breton's that were available during the summer. I won't be ordering this again unless Boden goes back to their previous winner of a Breton.

          I'm a big fan of Bretons, and this is the best I've seen. It's comfortable, classic, and seems well-made. It's a little thinner and a bit more snug that some, which will lend itself well to layering. I'll be wearing mine every weekend this fall and winter.

          I am long waisted and new to Boden USA products. Overall this is a well made shirt and fits well, but is too short for my build.

            I love these shirts, but they seem to run a little snugger than I prefer. Also short, which seems to be typical of Boden styling. Sent it back for a larger size.

              I love the weight of this top and the colors are great. The sleeves are short and are driving me crazy. I sized up without getting any additional sleeve length and have given up the hope of sporting this under some three quarter sleeve sweaters, they just disappear.

                arms fit fine, loose in body

                  This is definitely a casual shirt. I got the dill/ivory (green) in size 6. I'm 5'7" 135 lbs and normally wear 2 or 4 in tops at BR and jcrew. The arms fit just fine, but I find that the body is a little bit loose, but just fine for a casual t-shirt to be worn with jeans or shorts. The fabric is soft and the length is good.
