Rated 5 out of 5 by LarsWolfgang Japanese Chambray Utility Shirt
This is one of my favorite shirts, and the second time I purchased it. The first one (now 3 years old) is actually still in great shape. I lost weight since purchasing the first one, and bought this one to replace it. This shirt is so versatile and gets frequent use. It feels both rugged and refined; it can look dressier with a sweater and nice shoes, or more casual with sneakers. There are lots of other shirts like this on the market (both less expensive and more expensive than J.Crew), but I still like this one best. It is the perfect color blue, and the buttons, stitching, and details all feel high quality. I'm 6'1" and ~180lbs., and chose the slim medium. The fit is great in the chest and sleeves. My only complaint is that the side vent comes up a bit too high, which makes the shirt feel short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CP3BG Darker than pics; excellent style/fit/quality
This is an excellent chambray shirt, and the fit is excellent (i.e. sizing is accurate and the cut is good for a nice drape).
I'm 6'2'' 210 lbs, and I generally fit in between a Regular Large and a Slim XL in JCREW sizing. I went with the Slim XL for this shirt, and have zero complaints.
The style/fit/quality is typical jcrew excellence.
The only con I can think of is that the pictures on JCREW's website tend to make the colors looks lighter than they actually are. This is typical of nearly ALL of JCREW's catalog pictures. To get a better idea of the real color, you have to click on the little color square which shows a real pic of the item, as opposed to the pictures with the models. i.e. the model pictures look much lighter than the color swatch/real item picture. If I had to throw out arbitrary numbers, from 0-10 (light-dark); the model pics show a 4 when the real life color is more of a 6.5.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jonathan Great materials, poor "slim" fit
The materials, details, and finish work of this shirt are excellent. But the fit is really poor. I tried an XS small "regular" fit in the store, and it was a loose (as expected). I figured, "No worries, I'll order a "slim" fit online and it should be cut tighter". It wasn't. The Slim is rather loose fitting and frumpy looking. I'll be returning it. Please work on your fits J. Crew!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CRASH nice warm weather shirt.
This slim fit shirt fits perfect. I wear a small and its not too snug. very pleased with the color of this shirt, wear it as a work shirt, or dressed up with a nice pair of jeans, works well both ways.
