Rated 5 out of 5 by Nomad Authentic vintage Japanese
I collect vintage Japanese textiles and this shirt is the real deal. The indigo dye and thick, tight cotton weave are beautiful. As others have mentioned, the white thread used to sew on the buttons is an odd choice. This can be easily fixed with a black Sharpie marker. Otherwise it's perfect. After buying one for a friend, I purchased one for myself.

Very nice shirt. Excellent quality. I normally wear a slim large. I purchased a medium in this shirt and it fits very similar to JCrew slim large. I am 6'2, 185ish and the fit is perfect. My only issue with the purchase is the shirt depicted in the photo has a lighter shade of blue running through it than the shirt I received. The pictured shirt has more contrast between the shades of blue. The shirt I received is dark blue and royal blue rather than the dark blue and light blue featured in the photo. This may have something to do with the fact the shirts are indigo dyed. Not a deal breaker, still a high quality and great fitting shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DFrank Blue is the colour
I was looking for a new check shirt, a good one, one that could be smart or casual, I was looking for something blue. Wallace & Barnes are always quality and this shirt is no exception, it fits well looks great and most importantly it goes with my eyes, result, happy husband, happy wife.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MGSO Photo on website does not reflect actual item
The previous reviewer is correct about the color of the shirt. The photo on the website depicts a shirt that has a washed appearance with light blue checks. The blue checks on the actual shirt are nowhere near as light. On top of that, there is a rather bizarre detail that is not reflected by the photo on the website: a bright white thread was used to sew the buttons on the front of the shirt. This is a puzzling choice that honestly cheapens the appearance of the shirt. Bottom line, this item does not live up to the high standard set by the other Wallace & Barnes items I own, which are of outstanding appearance & quality.
