    Everything's GOOD with this shirt! - 6/24/2014
    By: from Northeast Ohio

    This shirt caught my eye in an Orvis sale catalog with its appealing print and unusual details. The reviews were positive, so I ordered it, and am so glad I did. I'm wearing it as I type this review! The fabric is distinctive - it's finely pleated, which provides a subtle vertical striping, and it's lightweight and comfortable (will be just the ticket for traveling). The print is beautiful, a gentle white vining pattern on a soft chamois background. It will go with many other colors. (Note: "dark" chamois is a bit of a misnomer; it is lighter than that, and the photo in the catalog/website is accurate.) The style details really set this shirt apart - epaulets, tab buttons, two tab chest pockets, band collar, and a flattering V-neckline. This shirt is already a favorite of mine!

    The shirt is casual and feminine, and can be worn almost everywhere. I especially like it because it is lightweight and crinkly, so it is ideal for travel.

    very nice shirt - 3/24/2014
    By: from Eastport NY

    seems to hold a good shape and is good quality. However, if you don't get it on sale here, you can probably get very similar in a cheaper brand. Color is good, held up nicely after washing too. Didn't need to be ironed.

    I've seen this shirt in the Orvis catalogue for a while -- seemed nice, but never got around to ordering until I saw it in the sale catalogue. When it came, it was even better than I expected -- very cool and lightweight in a nice neutral color that will go with a lot of bottoms. I think I'll be wearing this a lot when the weather gets warmer.

    Came back for a second! - 3/13/2014
    By: from Saint Petersburg, FL

    Last year I bought this blouse in green and kept getting compliments on it every time I wore it. So I was delighted when I noticed it was on super-sale in chamois, I ordered right away. It washes and dries beautifully, no ironing needed. Love it!

    this is my second Kalamkari shirt - the material in the first one was wonderful - the material in this one feels like cheap cotton.

    Although it arrived in a different colored pattern than I thought I had ordered, the gold pattern worked fine with my complexion. Very good quality.
