The body of this shirt is way too short. I'm a man in my 50s - I can't wear a belly shirt.
Surprise Purchase -
I expected the cloth to be alittle heavier, however the material is very soft and comfortable. Warmer than I thought it would be. Its also a shorter cut than some of the other items I've purchased, but a good length to leave out. I like the colors.
Comfortable and sized correctly, however arrived in a solid blue color rather white with blue shoulders. Orvis needs to correct picture in catalog! Shipping was expensive-most other vendors shipping is free.
Shame on Orvis -
By: Captain42 from Oklahoma
I have spent thousands of dollars with Orvis and have always been proud to wear and recommend their products. This is the worst quality item I have ever seen in decades supporting Orvis. Thin fabric and faulty sizing compared to all other Orvis items. A Christmas gift I will be returning, and do not expect to be charged return postage.
Needed purchase -

I need this quality long T for fishing. After the sun comes out I can still be protected from the elements.
Size issue -
Although the material and finish on this shirt was very nice, the shirt was advertised as being a slim fit. However, upon receipt, the shirt was VERY wide. It is unlikely that it would shrink either.
Did not exchange for a different size -
By: BohemianChef from Corte Madera, California
Ususally I fit into a large size. When I received this shirt it was too short even though it fit around the shoulders. So I returned it without an exchange since the X large would have been too large.
Great company, oddly cut -

I love my Rising Sun Duck Pants and I also own a pair of their Miner's pants that are excellent. American made and hand sewn to last a lifetime. I wanted to love this shirt for the same reason but it fit so poorly I was forced to return it. The sleeves are tight, the overall length of the shirt is short and the torso is wide. I am 5'9" and 175 lbs, athletic build, and ordered a large. The medium would have been way too small. Rising Sun is great but this shirt fell short....
Great Retro Tee -
I bought two of these tees and would recommend them very highly. I bought large which fitted as expected from the sizing chart (I'm a 42" chest 175lb) - yes they are slim fitting so be careful if your stomach is larger than your chest ;-) The fabric is silky rather than like typical t-shirt cotton - it feels great and so far after a couple of washes has not lost any of the feel or structure. These are intended to give a retro look and feel and I think they really hit the mark. Don't be put off by negative comments IMHO - I also have a few pairs of Rising Sun jeans and like those the quality here is top notch.
I am a fan of Orvis. This shirt, a Christmas present, was a severe disappointment. The reviews are accurate. Was this a test to see if someone would really pay for . . . and keep this product? How does this pass review?
