Rated 5 out of 5 by angel PERFECT, ALL COTTON END-ON-END
I'm writing this review after reading a review 'wishing for stretch' like most otherboyfriend shirts. Well I sure hope JCREW IS READING THIS.
I'VE SEARCHED LONG AND FAR FOR OLD-SCHOOL FABRICS. IF YOU ADD STRETCH TO THIS SHIRT, YOU'LL RUIN IT.
Years ago I purchased two similar, only with two front flap pockets. The logo J.CREW is embroidered above the tag at neck. I think they are now 8-10 yrs old.
After years of wear, I planned on buying more, so began gardening in these 2 shirts, until I realized they were rare. Yes, spandex is in everything now. I stopped tilling the garden in these shirts. There were no stains nor holes left behind. They are perfectly broken in, and never even lost a pearl button. In fact, I wore one on a full day's hike through national forests last week, and the shirt was the only part of me that looked pulled-together when we stopped for food and gas.
I bought 2 more of these shirts in 2014, and will buy another soon. More colors please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anne50 good basic shirt
I have other previous versions of the boy shirt, but had to size up this time. Like other tops this year, the fit through the shoulders and under the arms and in the upper arms is smaller, while the body seems the same. Hope JCrew addresses this problem soon. Sleeves also a bit long, but I usually roll up anyway. Love the end-on-end fabric, smooth, lighter-weight cotton with a bit of visual texture. I find the fit of the "perfect shirt" to be more flattering on my curvy shape, but the boy shirt is OK for casual and layering options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aelon Soft, beautiful shirt
This was a beautiful shirt, great color with wonderful feel, unfortunately I had to return it because it didn't fit me. I can't say that it runs small or large, just 'wrong'! I'm absolutely certain that there are many body types upon whom this shirt will look great. I am broad shouldered, slender in the body, small hips...large chest. It just didn't work through the body: too big, or in the chest: too small

Rated 3 out of 5 by RG73 Smaller Than I Thought
I thought this shirt would be bigger, but it is actually very fitted. I like it, but I may need to go one size up, to a medium, which is odd as I am a true-to-size small in Crew dress shirts. And even stranger is everything they are doing is large this season (not a big fan of the look), but I really thought it would be a little larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LB16 Perfect Shirt
Lightweight and perfect construction for a relaxed fit. Can be styled up or down making each look great. Not too snug in the chest for bustier gals like myself.
