sized smaller than other shirts -

I'm a big fan of Orvis shirts and have a number of long-sleeve shirts that fit fine. This shirt was too small.

This is a great shirt--lightweight, comfortable, and great looking. Sizing is right on, too. Great addition to a summer wardrobe.
I was no sucker in ordering this gem -

I am rarely dissatisfied with the quality of clothing I purchase from Orvis and am happy to report that this shirt continues in a long line of satisfaction. It has a great fit, looks good and is easy to care for. I am taking it with my on my adventure trip to Sri Lanka and India because not only does it look great, but I can wash it by hand and have it ready to wear in a couple of days.
Handsome shirt -

The darker colors in this shirt, blue and green, make it good looking and practical. Also versatile for different seasons.
Perfect for Australian Summer Evenings -
By: OverseasTrader from Perth, Australia
This shirt strikes the perfect balance between light weight and the body of the fabric. Cool, soft, yet stands up. I will be ordering the other colours. Thanks!
Nice quality shirt -
Fits and wears well in the body. Collar is a bit high and the shirt length is a touch too long but having said that I would buy it again. Very light-weight... would be ideal for warm temperatures.

Cool shirt -

I needed a smart, cool, summer shirt and this is it. Very comfortable to wear and almost non iron. Only slight critiscism is that the collar is a bit higher than with other makers.
An exotic and practical history
Distinctively wrinkled seersucker was first woven in India. The name of the fabric is a Hindi derivation of a Persian phrase, "shir shakkar," which translates as "milk and sugar," representing the alternating rough and smooth textures of the cloth’s signature stripes.
The alternating textures are produced by what is called slack-tension weaving, which alternates fibers held under normal tension with intervening slack fibers; the resulting fabric has a pattern of puckered and flat stripes permanently woven into the cloth.
Not only does seersucker never need ironing, the wrinkles also make seersucker one of summer’s coolest fabrics. Cotton breathes incredibly well, while the puckered weave allows cooling air circulation against the skin where it’s needed most.
Great for Warm Weather Travel
This means that Orvis seersucker clothing is an easy-care, cool and comfortable choice for warm weather. It's also a great choice for your summer travel clothing—you'll always look great and feel comfortable during your travels with no ironing needed!
