    Size Check - 9/15/2014

    I really wanted the Light Khaki but it wasn't going to ship until next year, so I ordered the British Tan as a size check. Even though it is darker than it appears on the site, I liked so much, I decided to keep it. Very well made... a quality product! I will still order the Light Khaki next February.

    Heavy Duty! - 9/8/2014
    By: from Michigan

    This is a heavy duty shirt that I anticipate will take me a decade to wear out. Generously sized. Tough material, well put together. Top quality.

    Nice shirt. Run a bit large - 8/24/2014
    By: from Kansas City, MO

    Nice, heavy shirt. Size tends to run a bit large. Since I have wide shoulders due to carrying the weight of the world on them, I thought I'd buy this one in large too. No way Jose!!! I found my self swimming in the length of new shirt. I took it back and ordered the medium. Looks great. First time I wore it out, had someone ask if I was an adventurer. I told them no, I'm a father to 3 young kids, but thanks for asking...Seriously, buy the shirt and order it 1 size less unless of course you have a massive man belly and need the extra cloth.

    Best Of The Kind - 8/4/2014
    By: from New Mexico

    I wear safari shirts practically all the time primariarly for the spacious pockets (I keep my wallet secure in one) and for the good looks and sporty appeal. Yeah, you can find a cheaper one (I know. I've owned a few) that begin to unravel in places but these that Orvis has are the longest wearing and best looking I've ever bought.

    Well made shirt - 8/4/2014
    By: from Palm Harbor, FL

    This shirt was made from a heavier material from what I had expected. It was very well made but it would not be comfortable to wear in very hot weather.

    Based on my experience with similar Orvis shirts I think its a very good product. I returned it and and 2 earlier shirts because of faulty packaging. Apparently these shirts from China are packaged by machine and its not working properly.
