Rated 5 out of 5 by ATCC classic
I don't think it's necessary to comment on the quality nor the style. It's a classic, just get it. I have this in 6 color options from J.Crew however, navy is the most versatile one.
A word of caution, if you plan on tumble drying this I'd recommend going a size up. The small fits like your J.Crew men button down small but will fit like slim fit once tumble dried. The sleeves also shrunk a bit. The medium fits perfectly after wash and tumble dry and fit like your typical J.Crew small.

I love this style, so I had to have the blue and white stripes, both combos! I wanted the x-small (I'm 5'3", 112 lbs). The navy was out of stock in x-small so I chose the xx-small (never a problem, I'm usually glad to find it but figured these might shrink a bit...). When they arrived, I was thrilled with them. The x-small was as expected, a little oversized but wonderful. The xx-small should have been PERFECT. Except that it was a child sized 16. I laid them on top of each other (because I don't care if it's technically a kid's size, hey, I'm small!) They are so different! The kid's is a total boxy cut, dropped shoulders, wider and shorter sleeves, shorter but wider body...totally different. I'm not sure it's flattering on any woman, but it's not flattering on me. J Crew was awesome about the return (I didn't have the tags on because I was so IN LOVE...you know how that goes). I'm waiting for the x-small to be back in stock, because I want to order it again. Hope this helps somebody!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joan St. James Atelier maritime shirt
I've loved -- and bought -- St. James shirts for years, all made of the thick,
durable cotton for which they are famous. I don't know what cheap fabric the shirt I just bought is made from, but you can see through it! Not only that, the fit is different -- narrow and long. I still have all my old St. James's so it was easy to compare. What's going on? Why doesn't J. Crew still carry the original maritime shirt? What a disappointment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by toriabd Fabulous classic!
I have multiples colors of this shirt, some more than 6 years old that still look like new, and have just ordered more. It is a true classic. I usually wear a size S in women's, and the XS is roomy but not too slouchy. Looks great worn with some skinny jeans and ballet flats. I recommend washing on a delicate cycle and line drying to avoid shrinkage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarah Great piece, be wary of sizing
I ordered an xx-small and received a children's size 16 - the fit is different than the adult, especially regarding sleeve length (I have no choice but to wear them rolled as they are too short). This was a surprise when I received the package and felt this should have been noted when I made the order.
