Travel Shirt -
By: Ruralguy from Oklahoma City, OK
This is truly a great shirt! It travels very well, does not wrinkle and looks great. It washes very well and the only complaint i have is I would like to have other colors as well. Great buy!

Well finished product, fits well and very comfortable to wear.
Practical and comfortable -
By: Longhaul777 from Derbyshire UK
I wanted a travel shirt. It is very comfortable, has secure pockets suitable for travel documents, and can be washed, hung and worn within a few hours. Usual superb fit for the fuller figure and also looks good in the pub with my Orvis sweater.Hope it maintains its looks. I will certainly be trying it in equatorial conditions later this year.
Good looking shirt -
By: Munford from Richmond, VA
I bought this shirt for my husband. Ordered the large and it came in sized like an extra large. Had to return for a medium which fit perfectly. Even though it is a bit over sized, the shirt is great looking, soft and well made.
My Husband's favorite shirt -
I have ordered this for my husband as a Christmas gift because he saw it in the catalog and hinted strongly. Great fiber for traveling and he loves the two pockets! Has purchased these before and always returns to this type of shirt.

Can never predict arm lengths -
By: Okwiththis from Cranford NJ
Issues with arm lengths I'm a large and cannot wear the long arm lengths that come with these shirts
Too long -
By: DavidGS from Alexandria, VA
I like the fabric, the look, the wearability. But, it's too long--if I wear it untucked, it hangs almost to my knees. I have another Orvis microfiber travel shirt which is not like this one.

Built to last
What’s the recipe for the great apparel selection that Orvis offers? It is a combination of experience, research, knowing our customers and gut reaction. The latter was the main ingredient in one of our great success stories - The Presidential Microfiber Shirt.
A shirt that gets noticed
It began with an unassuming pile of shirts in one of the sample rooms. Orvis President Perk Perkins spied the shirt during a line review. “It was just sitting there on the shelf among the stacks of about 200 other sample shirts,” remembered Perk. “But it just seemed to jump out at me.” He was struck by the soft, subtle luster of the fabric.
Perk went over and pulled it out of the stack and inquired, "What about this shirt - why aren't we offering this?” Orvis’ product development specialist was also impressed by the look and feel of the fabric, but had reservations. He explained, "Oh, that's too expensive - it would retail for nearly $100. And our customers don't like synthetics."
Made of Lyocell - a natural wood-based fiber
Perk was persistent. "But this isn't synthetic, the label says its made out of wood fiber.” Specifically, the shirt was made of Lyocell. Like rayon, the material is woven of plant fibers and has a natural look and soft drape. Determined, Perk stated, “I think they'll like this...and I think we'll sell so many that you can find a factory to make it for a lot less money. Let me take it home and test it for a while."
Field-tested by Perk Perkins
Weeks passed while Perk field-tested the new shirt. After one particular trip to Orvis offices in Roanoke, Virginia, he came back with glowing reviews and a strengthened belief in the fabric. “Every time I wore the shirt, people remarked about its good looks,” he told Tom. “Women in particular.” The women’s reaction really sold Perk. He liked the feel of it so much that it quickly became one of his favorite shirts.
The perfect travel shirt
The shirt was great for travel, packed flat and came out of the wash looking crisp and neat. The soft feel was comfortable alone and under jackets. It's been an enormous success - it's one of the most popular shirts we have ever sold.
