Rated 4 out of 5 by Karen not for me and very large
I was so excited when I saw this plaid as well as the candy striped version, and ordered as soon as I could. Having tried the solid versions, I knew to go down to a size 2 (I had tried my normal sizes 4 and 6 in the white and light blue and green). The size was correct, but something about the flaps on the pocket kill the style for me - police shirt? I really want to like these short sleeve shirts, but none have worked in any of the three sizes and different fabrics. I'm sure others will love any of these shirts, but I have to pass. BTW, the color is more like the image when you click on the swatch rather than on the model. I find that tends to be the case in general; the materials look overly bright in the model images.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CrewFan Unflattering Shape
I love, love, love this plaid but the fit makes it a no-go. Although most Crew popovers run true to size, occasionally there is one that is much wider (without any mention of that in the description.) This top is one of those. It's a bit shorter and super wide which does not flatter apple shapes. I'm bummed about returning it cause I rarely like the prints as much as I like this one. Oh well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by justvisiting Short-Sleeve Popover Re-boot Next Year PLEASE!
I feel the same as some of the other reviewers; so bummed-out to have to return yet another top that is so pretty but fits like a box on me. I tried to make it work but I know the shape of the top is too wide, esp. at the chest. The darker berry plaid stripes across the chest only emphasize the width of the shirt. This cotton/elastene popover can be tucked in, & the fabric isn't as prone to billowing out like the linen popover fabric, but it is still a top that has to be manipulated to look just right, & even then, it still looks too wide. It may be *on trend* but not everyone has to like it. I can't wait for it to pass. JCrew you owe it to us to bring back this pretty plaid [& the soft Baird McNutt linen] in a more classic cut shirt, w/the same shoulder & rolled sleeve design, only w/o the boxy cut please!

Rated 2 out of 5 by AniH Too Short, Too Boxy
This is a great print and I always prefer a pop-over (especially in a boy cut) over a classic shirt. However, this shirt is just too short and too boxy for me. I am bummed about returning it, but it means more room on my j.crew credit card to buy something else!
