    Love the shirt - 11/16/2015

    I usually went XXL but that feels alot larger in the body than most shirts. Its a nice comfortable shirt, and I've recently ordered a third. I'm currently wearing the long sleeve version, and after several years, still looks and feels great.

    Best shirt on recent trip to Serengeti. Exactly as described and despite hot weather, was perfect shirt. Tough but cool enough. Will buy more for fly fishing trips, hiking.

    Bad fabric - 11/1/2015

    Fabric wrinkles really bad. The similar shirt made in India is much better.

    I love this shirt. Very comfortable. Great style and fit. I wear a 48 regular suit and got the XL. As others have observed, the material is a little thick for hot summer days, but certainly an excellent shirt all around. I'm very happy with this purchase. I guess I need a pith helmet now.

    Substantial material,,colors are deep..I sized up for comfort and possible shrinkage.Probably not good if it is too hot.

    I buy one every decade and they last that long and they get used a lot. from winters in Idaho, summers in Arizona and fishing in Alaska they are always in my bag.

    Over The Top - 9/1/2015

    Nothing wrong with the shirt. I kind of liked it, but my wife didn't, so what can I tell you. The color was fine, material fine, well made. She didn't like the epaulets.

    An excellent shirt, well made and very comfortable. Personally I would not think it is a hot weather shirt but that suits me. A shirt, I am sure, that will last me many years unless the Tax Man tries to get it of my back!
