    Bring Back Malpis Shirt!!!!!! - 10/9/2013
    By: from Flagstaff, AZ

    The Malpis Shirt is one of the best shirts ever! Unfortunately, Orvis has discontinued it. How frustrating not to be able to buy and wear them anymore. Nothing in Orvis' stores or catalogues even comes close! it would please a lot of customers to have it return.

    Orvis, are you listening?? - 4/4/2013

    This pullover is the most well constructed, longest wearing, climate-adaptable workhorse ever. No other shirt even comes close. LUCKILY, I have an olive drab, a couple stones and a denim - - unfortunately I don't have the goldenrod or black, because for reasons unknown to most of us, Malpai has been discontinued. Why?? Orvis - - are you listening to your customers?? Do you read these reviews?? It's very obvious that we LOVE 'EM, we MISS 'EM, we NEED 'EM, and we WANT 'EM BACK in stock. Sooner the better. Bottom line - - ORVIS: PLEASE DO THE RIGHT THING, AND BRING MALPAI BACK. SOON.

    I don't understand why such a magnificent shirt in XXL is always, always out of stock at Orvis. And bring back the black Malpai - doesn't show dirt and is absolutely perfect. If Orvis doesn't want to manufacture this shirt, please give the rights to someone else.

    Tight fit - 12/29/2012
    By: from KY

    Love the shirt, but unfortunately I should have ordered next size. It is tailored for slim body, shoulders and sleeves good, trunk too narrow.

    A very FINE shirt - 12/3/2012

    I love it and it has already been much admired which always helps the ego that I chose a shirt that is so beautifully detailed (I love the buttons!) and the stone color lends itself to many different outfits.

    an unusual but unique shirt - 11/30/2012

    A unique shirt in that you don't know which catagory to put the shirt in, western style, casual work shirt, or hennley style shirt, but it's all three, it's a heavy weight, 5 snap button shirt with really big two flap covered pockets to hold lots of stuff and it's over sized as not to cramp your style, or bind or chafe you while wearing this shirt, it's not made for a slender trim fit cut shirt, it's made for a do anything type of shirt and it's a do anything kind of shirt and it will survive whatever you put it through. Quality and tough with a touch of kindness, the Orvis way, thanks Orvis, another bargain.
