    Exactly what I hoped to receive.. - 4/7/2014
    By: from Rural TN

    As a tall older man, who spent many years without access to appropriately sized shirts, this Orvis Bush Shirt is exactly what I hoped for. The cut is generous, the pockets large enough for a small spiral notebook and a pair of glasses, and buttons and stitch lines tidily sewn and secure. The fabric is sturdy but comfortable. I am very happy with the shirt, and have ordered another in a different color.

    rugged but dressy bush shirt - 3/31/2014

    needed a shirt better suited to the temperature differences here in Colorado and that fishing shirts do not handle without multiple layering in evening. good enough for dinner in Vail as well

    What Can I Say? - 3/28/2014

    What can I say? My closet will speak for itself. I have a closet full of these shirts. I wear them nearly every day and love them. Nice and roomy, functional, smart looking. Just received my last one - an update of one of my first colors I got years ago and nearly wore it out. The new one looks even richer than I remember the original looking. Enjoy!

    Thank You! - 3/26/2014

    Orvis, Thank you for selling shirts in a tall size for grown men. There is nothing more frustrating than putting on an expensive shirt and the cuff only reaching halfway down my forearm. I will be getting one in every color. Please make more shirts in a tall size. I haven't had the shirt long enough to speak of it's durability, but if and when it breaks down, you'll be the first to know!

    Barely OK - 3/14/2014
    By: from Tucson, AZ

    Color was great, but the fabric is too heavy....it feels more like a "work" shirt, not the lighter weight safari like shirt I expected. Thus, I have worn it only once, and not certain when I would wear it again.

    My favorite shirt - 3/11/2014
    By: from Texas

    These bush shirts are comfortable and versatile. They fit right, feel right, and look right. I often get complements on the shirts. The quality is excellent, and they last a long time.
