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 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 Chadd One of my new faves from J.Crew
Wasn't quite sure how i felt about the collar tab but after wearing this shirt for the first time its a nice little detail. Everything about this shirt is great. The fit is right in line with the rest of my slim fit shirts. Amazing color and material as well. Hope to have this one for awhile.
