Comfortable, flattering, and versatile

This shirt is excellent quality and easy to wear. As other reviewers have said, the linen does wrinkle, but it’s subtle, and any noticeable wrinkles are easy to steam out. The sleeves were a bit stiff at first and didn’t hang the way I wanted, but after I washed the shirt and steamed them, they draped more naturally. I’m typically a small in tops and found the small to be generous, but not in an overwhelming way. (And as the product description notes, the shirt does shrink slightly in the wash, which was a good thing for the fit in my case.) The long hem and generous cut makes it easy to style different ways, including tying at the front. I live in a hot, dry climate, and the weight and breathe-ability of the shirt are perfect.


I love this shirt. It fits oversized but in a flattering way, and I love the pocket detail. I can wear it with so many things, and the quality feels amazing! One thing I would say is that it is not 100% opaque - on normal days I wear it with a bralette and its fine, but when I teach I wear it with a black undershirt just to be safe.

LOVE! Perfect for spring

The quality of this shirt is just so lovely! Light but structured, easy to knot or tuck or wear open. The huge front pockets are such a cool detail!

Great shirt!

Great shirt: I love the quality of the linen, the originality of the cut (great oversize front pockets!), and as a philosophy major, the name of the shirt pleases me no end. I'm 5'10 and the size M fits perfectly.

Money well spent!

I really love this shirt. The quality is fantastic and I love all the attention that was paid to the little details. Like I really love it. It is versatile, washes well, and I've probably worn it once a week since I received it in April.

I ordered my usual size (L) and while it gives me a nice, oversized fit without being sloppy, it is basically a dress on me. Granted, I 100% expected this as I'm 5'3, extremely short-waisted with a DD chest and have lived long enough to know that most women's fashion is a cruel joke, online size charts are not to be fully trusted and a good tailor is as essential as a good hair stylist. This shirt fits my shoulders perfectly and I can't begin to adequately express how thrilled I am that the shirt stays buttoned up around my chest with no gap or buttons popping open! The measurements as noted on the website are accurate, as is the anticipated shrinkage. I can live with the extra long length for now, because it looks really cute tucked in or tied up and also because I can't really bear to take the shirt out of rotation right now, but I imagine once the weather gets colder I'll send it off to have the length shortened! I'm considering investing in the white version of this shirt, and if I do, I'll definitely size down to a medium.
