I wanted to love this shirt. Honestly.
The flannel, which I understand is described as lightweight, is borderline flimsy (although it is soft). It's on par with material I could find at some other incredibly cheap clothing stores. It's ridiculous for the price. I compared this in store with the men's flannel shirts, which probably have 2-3 times the substance as this women's lightweight flannel. Flannel is meant to be cozy and warm in winter. I could wear this in the summer in a mildly air conditioned building and still be cold.
The fit is even more disappointing than the fabric. I'm almost certain what happened was they took the fit/dimensions of the "boy" shirt (which I do love), and added 2 inches in every dimension except for the shoulders and length. Do our torsos look like squares (boxy) or trapezoids (the sides are almost A-line)? Because that's the only body type that would fit this. Or of course, a model.
P.S. please stop making shirts with buttoned pockets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anne50 another disappointing fit
This shirt also has the fit problem I've been encountering with some JCrew shirts lately, and to an even odder degree. Too tight across the shoulders and particularly through the armholes. Everything below the bust was much roomier, almost A-line. I was recently measured in a reputable lingerie store as a 36B, so size 10 should have fit fine. I recently bought the end-on-end "boy shirt" in a size 12 in order to get a comfortable fit through the shoulders and arms. I laid that size 12 over this size 10, and this shirt was about 2 inches wider in the body. Will return this.

Gray and polka dots? Yes, please. Unfortunately, that's the best thing about this shirt. The "flannel" isn't really flannel, but more of a soft cotton; it's not like a warm winter flannel shirt. My regular size 10 fit in the shoulders, but the torso was completely wide and just hung on me in a totally unflattering way. The sides have a giant curve in the shirt tail hem, which went from my low hip area all the way up so my jeans waistband was visible without even raising my arms. This possibly cute fall layering piece is ruined by a bad cut.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MegW Runs large, not the soft flannel I wanted.
The material isn't the super soft cozy flannel that I was looking for. Also, the fit is pretty large. The picture looked nice, but the actual shirt didn't quite measure up to what I was looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lissa Way too big
I liked the very soft lightweight flannel but the shirt was huge. I normally wear a 10 in J Crew shirts. This one fit well in the chest and shoulders but was really long and really wide towards the bottom. If it had been a lot cheaper I would have kept it but it wasn't worth the price I paid so its going back.
