Rated 4 out of 5 by gilipollas Nice shirt, sizing is a little difficult
I really like this shirt. It's a nice fabric, pretty cool, and looks great. The grey stripe is really subtle, and it looks like I've had the shirt for years, but without the pit stains.
However, compared to other slim-fit small J Crew shirts, this one fits a little more slim in the body, almost too slim. I'm about 5'10", 165, with narrow shoulders (size 36R suit in Ludlow). The sleeves are a pretty good length, if not a tad long on me, but consistent with a 36R Ludlow suit (which I usually have the sleeves shortened on a tad). The torso is long enough, but it's almost too slim, like it would only fit someone who's really really skinny. I didn't dry it in the dryer, so it's not that, it just fits slim. Just be aware. Overall, I like the fit more than a regular J Crew shirt (non slim), so I'll recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by putigers A classic, but could be better...
Pros: this shirt is extremely comfortable. The oxford material feels broken-in and soft. Construction is decent and the drape of the garment is good.
Cons: The shirt has a noticeably small collar. I understand J. Crew is trying to do the whole "modern classic" thing by slimming down proportions, but this collar belongs on little boys' clothes. It visually lacks substance, and fails to frame the wearer's face in a favorable way. If collar roll is something you're looking for, forget about it. The collar lays pathetically flat, mostly due to its insignificance. Additionally, sleeves run a bit long. I wear a medium in almost everything and have longer than average arms, yet the sleeves hit well past my wrists.
Verdict: Overall, the white OCBD is something every guy should own. The J Crew version hits almost all the right notes. However, few characteristics, such as the mini collar, exhibit its general immaturity in the styling department. Please fix this J. Crew!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Forest Classic style, good fit, poor quality
A great fitting, classic styled shirt. Unfortunately, mine ripped in the shoulder after just one washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalie great shirt
fantastic material - very soft. Fit well but size runs slightly smallish (for 'usual' L i had to get XL) - i guess because it is slim style but looks amazing, my husband loved it
