Rated 1 out of 5 by ATCC to call it garbage would be an insult to the word
Design: Japanese have zero idea on how to design proper americana anything let alone western shirt #sorrynotsorry. I'm a sucker of Japanese design and Jcrew so I bought all the Chimala, Shuttle Notes and United Arrows shirts through Jcrew website and every single one of them has been a disaster in terms of quality, style and fit. This particular gem is made of 60% Linen and 40% Cotton instead of pure denim like how a western shirt is suppose to be made. The fabric itself has a weird nubby feel to it and the herringbone pattern simply does not work here, why mess with a classic? The snaps are these strange and cheap looking studds.
Quality: The shoulder seams ripped when I attempted to put it on, enough said, which lead to the next part..
Fit: The previous two reviews are spot on. The arm is very, very tight, even for someone who's 5'8" 145 pounds. I reckon anyone can go Hulk smash trying on this baby.
Conclusion: This gem is great for channeling your inner Hulk

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hurdygurdyman Couldn't even put my arms in the shirt.
The first reviewer was dead on but I was really curious because I love westerns and I got it for a great price.... I could not even get my forearms through on a medium and I am no Popeye. I am 5'9 weigh 165 and have a fit build. You have to have spaghetti arms to even attempt to get this shirt on your body. I am always a small or medium in JCrew shirts. I ordered a medium and it fits like a XXS.
Very disappointing since it is a really nice looking and quality shirt. There is no way even the large or extra large would fit. I think the chest would have fit just fine but I didn't even get that far. I almost ripped the arms taking it off. Avoid this shirt even if they are giving it away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DrFluxCapacitor It Could Have Been Great
I can only assume this was made for some unknown alien race, because no normal proportioned man can fit into this shirt. I know this because I bought ALL THREE SIZES and every one of them were EXTREMELY tight in the arms.
From a purely aesthetic place, the shirt is gorgeous...I mean really amazing. The color, fabric, design are all top notch. The mother of pearl buttons are fantastic. Then they had to ruin it all with the construction.
I even gave them to my girlfriend thinking that one of three sizes must fit. Nope. Had to return them.
So if you are interested in recreating the last scene in Brokeback Mountain where Heath Ledger stares at that awesome western shirt hanging in his closet, this shirt is for you. If you are interested in actually wearing this thing, well... move along cowboy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Unks Small but Nice
Like others pointed out, runs small, especially the arms are tight. I'm average in most respects and usually wear mediums. Had to return for the large but this worked out fine. But this shirt is made from really nice looking soft materials and who cares its not authentic cowboy shirt...it looks great. I'd recommend this shirt for guys with skinny arms...if you are average, get a large...if you muscular or a bit over weight, then I agree, stay away from this one!!
