Rated 3 out of 5 by Robyn Bought Two, Love One
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!

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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by happydaani White is not white but ecru.
I purchased white in xs thinking it was white with black stripes. When I received it, I was disappointed to find ecru with marine stripes. The tag even stated it was ecru/marine. I had to return it in the store. J. Crew please fix the color on this page.
As for sizing, since this is an unisex shirt, it fits quite snug. I'm between xxs and xs and found xs to fit me just fine for a relaxed look. The shoulder lines fall slightly off my shoulders and the body itself gave a relaxed baggy look. Also expect the sleeves to be very wide, not like regular women's long sleeves.
The material is not soft cotton but rather coarse texture and is quite thick. It could be good under a trench coat or a pea coat for fall and early winter.
