best blouse i've ever worn -
By: halfbreed from PARAGOULD, AR.
I ordered one of these blouses, and was so pleased with the quality, I ordered 3 more. Very good material and workmanship. would highly recomend these to everyone. and also would like to say, anything ERIC CLAPTON is a part of, has to be the best. or he wouldn't be involved with it.
Oatmeal Linen Blouse -
By: Chii from Port Perry, On Cda
I purchased this blouse in a small size, I normally wear a size 12 and it fits well. The oatmeal colour is transparent, in that the placket shows through & is very prominent. A darker colour would probably be better.

I have been looking at this particular colour blouse for some time, so I checked the reviews and decided to go for it! This blouse was ordered direct from the U.S which only took 8 days to arrive, and I am delighted with the blouse, I took the precaution of ordering 2 in eggshell ( I already have the safari colour in this style). I must say that this colour is a slightly lighter fabric to the safari one, nonetheless a gorgeous addition to my wardrobe and still an exceptional quality item!! Many thanks orvis U.S.

I have two of these shirts and would have more if more colors were available. The fabric is quite nice (does not seem to wrinkle too much) and the length is perfect. Please add a red, pink or blue in this style. Also, the collar and no darts help make this shirt so wonderful.
Wonderful clothing line -

I have bought several outfits from Orvis - everyone I have loved. Quality, fabric, even when laundered the quality is still like new
Great Wardrobe Piece -
Love this simply elegant linen-type shirt. The shirt has enough body to work as a jacket over a tank top but is cool enough to wear by itself. Love the texture of the fabric.
The original natural fabric
The oldest fiber known to man, linen is also the most natural and most environmentally friendly fiber in the world. From the blue-flowered linum (or common flax) plant that is native to temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, flax has been grown for thousands of years without any damage to the environment.
The Power of Flax
Flax is a completely renewable resource and every part of the plant is used, therefore eliminating any waste. The fibers are used for textiles or paper, the resulting linseed oil is sought after for oil paints and soap, flax seeds and flax seed oil are prized for their nutritional value.
Fortitude - In and Out of Soil
A hearty plant that thrives in many diverse environments, flax requires very little fertilizer or pesticides—many times less than cotton. The resulting linen fabric is also fully biodegradeable and can be totally recycled.
Linen Through the Ages
Linen is thought to have originated in ancient Mesopotamia. The ancient Egyptians wrapped their mummies in linen strips, taking advantage of the fabric’s inherent natural strength. The strongest of all vegetable fibers, linen is two-to-three times stronger than cotton. It is actually stronger when wet, which is why it washes so well and is so durable.
Built to Last
Linen becomes softer and more comfortable with age. It absorbs moisture far better than cotton and dries more quickly, making it ideal wear for humid summers and tropical climates. Highly breathable and anti-allergenic, linen has UV-protection properties as well. Linen holds dyes and prints with excellent color fastness, so it is available in every color and print imaginable.
Ancient History to Modern Day
Today, linen is widely used for clothing, bedding, upholstery fabrics and household tablecloths, napkins, and towels. Keeping our commitment to conservation efforts and sustainability is easy with this truly renewable natural fabric. Orvis offers a full range of men’s and women’s apparel in classic, breathable, and eco-friendly fabric.
