This shirt is absolutely gorgeous. I bought the "aubergine" and it's a lovely deep purple color. The fabric is thinner than I expected, it's a silky, drapey twill; it's hard to believe it's wool! I bought an XXL, which is the size I wear in most brands and it fits perfectly. I was looking more for a warmer wool shirt to wear in really cold weather but this is so spectacular that I'm thrilled that I bought it. It's my first Wool& purchase and I will definitely be buying more in the future. (Maybe you can also make a shirt like this that's more like a heavier wool flannel? I'd buy that, too! Woolrich stopped making them, they're impossible to find!) I love it.
I'm very impressed. I got this as my reward for completing the 100 day challenge in a "Summer midi " and I like it a lot. I'm between medium and large and sized up so I can use it as a layering piece or tuck it it. It's more substantial than I expected and very soft. The sleeves, as others have noted could be a tiny bit longer but it's not enough to take a star away. I look forward to wearing this all the time.
I love that this material feels substantial, but still drapes nicely. It is a little bit long, as someone who is short, but I can half-tuck or wear over leggings/skinny jeans. It is great with black for the office. Comfortable and soft while professional. The color really is a very deep purple, not too bright.
Fits perfectly and is a gorgeous fabric and color. Doesn't look like it will wrinkle. Know it's going to be one of my favs. Think it will work well instead of a sweater too.
The material quality feels great, though other reviews have me worried about long-term use (sweat stains, pilling, excess wrinkles after washing, etc.).
I tried both an XS and S. The fit is just... bleh. I'm in my 30s but a lot of the styles seem catered toward older women. The shirt felt too long and poofed out strangely near the hips, trying to make my waist and hips area look much larger. Forget about trying to tuck these in, even a half-tuck is a no-go. There's way too much fabric. It might be better if they include petite sizing in the future.
And the colors... I ordered the blue and purple to hopefully wear with black or navy dress pants. The colors just aren't flattering. I'd love to see some other colors like a classic oxford blue or something better than what's currently offered. Overall just really disappointed and sad about these as I've been on the search for a good women's merino wool dress shirt for so long now. But this isn't it.
