Rated 1 out of 5 by Filet Perfect Shirt...not so perfec this year
Last summer I purchased the green linen shirt in my size and THOROUGHLY enjoyed wearing it all season and beyond. I was thrilled when I saw that JCrew posted "The Perfect Shirt" again. I ordered 3 new shirts in my size. I was disappointed to find that the shirts were cut smaller and the linen was thinner. SO thin (and look worn) in fact that I am concerned that they will last the entire summer. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lala123 Fantastic basic (yet elegant) linen shirt
I love these linen shirts. They are modern, classic, and chic. It's hard to find a good minimalistic but non-dowdy linen shirt, so thank you J Crew for creating this one!
Style and fit is awesome. I love the length -- practically CYA length without seeming like a tunic. Most of J Crew's shirts are too short for my long torso so I appreciate the length on this one. The fabric drapes beautifully, and follows the shape of the body without hugging every flaw. It pairs well with everything from skinnies (like the Pixies) to khakis, shorts and skirts.
Quality is great. Mine are a year old, and have held up nicely thru multiple washes. I use oxy-type bleach when needed (mine are white but I wouldn't use chlorine bleach since it can yellow linen). For sizing info, I'm about 5'4" 112 pounds, long torso, wide shoulders. I have the 0 and the 2, and prefer the 2 because of the nice drape.
I highly recommend this shirt, and hope JCrew keeps it in the lineup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pricklypoppy Great Shirt!
This shirt is a summer staple. I order a few of these linen shirts every year. This year's shirt runs TTS. In previous years, the shirt ran larger and I sized down. Not the case this year. Order your regular size.
This shirt is on the long side. Untucked, it covers my hips.
I wash this in cold water and put it the dryer for a few minutes before ironing. The fabric gets softer with wear.
Note: The monogram at the chest is very small at 1/4" high. You can hardly see it.

This is the perfect shirt! I first tried it on at our local J Crew, but had to order the navy in my size. The size runs a little small, but the color is great and it is the perfect weight for summer. Easy to order online and delivery was quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stefabella great color!
Sort of an impulse purchase, but loved the green color - so different from the traditional white linen shirt...got it, love it and find that it's going to be a nice colorful addition to many items, including use as as long sleeve cover [tied at the waist] to a flowing silk black dress I got that is my go-to for the summer! yay! [and rocks with jeans!]
