Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt I wear linen shirts a lot in warmer weather, and when I saw this one on sale, I bought it. It is beautifully made, with the round shirttails a nice touch to make a classic design special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique linen shirt Was looking for a summer shirt that was uncomplicated but had a collar and bit of style. Bought the Essential Linen Shirt on sale. The shirt has subtle tailoring that is very flattering on my body without being too restrictive. I have already worn it twice and felt very comfortable in the heat of summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, cool and not too slouchy It's loose but not so slouchy it looks sloppy. I wore it on a 5 hour bike tour in Hawaii and it was comfortable, cool, and kept the sun off. I hope to wear it (half-tuck) with skinny jeans/slacks and pencil skirts at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft I bought 3 of these shirts because I knew I would love them. They are lovely; soft drape with just the right amount of length. So versatile that I have worn them on bicycle rides and in professional meetings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful linen. Well made. As others stated this shirt runs a bit small. I went up a size and it fits perfectly. Freshly washed and pressed it looks like a million bucks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy, light, great summer shirt. I love this shirt! When I first tried it on it seemed too small, but I gave it a try and I'm glad I did. The weave doesn't stretch much, so it can be a little tough putting on and taking off, but once it's on it's very comfortable and light. A great summer shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely linen shirt! I love this linen shirt! I already knew Garnet Hill had high quality linen and this shirt did not disappoint. I love the popover style, the flatteringly slim yet airy fit, and the comfort in summer. I burn easily and prefer linen to sunscreen. I've already worn this shirt on several day long, outside field trips with my fourth grade class and it will be a staple this summer as I spend time on deck as a swim official at swim meets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! I have washed and dried this shirt one time. Haven’t worn it since because I don’t know if I need to iron it or not. Would like feedback from company or customers who have this white shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful linen I just received my white shirt & I love it. The white is see through but not enough to be a problem. I will probably unbutton it & wear a cami, but that is a style I like. I have broad shoulders & a small bust & the size 8 was perfect. The sleeve length is great, I frequently have trouble with other shirts. Great value on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt I considered this shirt for a long time before ordering and do not regret buying it. While I find it a bit snug through the shoulders, I like the more fitted (not sloppy) look overall. The linen has a "firmer body" than many linens and, although it does wrinkle (of course), it doesn't look as crumpled as many linen shirts tend to look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic summer elegance I purchased two of these beautiful shirts and find them to be versatile, able to be dressed up or down, and a must in everytone's wardrobe. Linen is perhaps the best summer fabric, especially for a hot climate like Arizona. Love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Flattering I ordered the Cayenne in a size 18 (I usually wear a 16 or 18), and it fits perfectly. The upper arms are roomy, and the length hits me perfectly at low hip in the front and the bottom of the tush in back (I'm 5'5"). The curved hem and overlay detail at the side split are a nice tailored touch, and very flattering. This shirt is so clearly a superior linen compared to what is found at other stores with comparable prices--JCrew, for example--and felt very soft and lightweight to me right out of the bag. Plus, the cayenne color is rich and luxurious. The shirt feels casual but put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stylish and cool for summer Llightweight linen fabric and fits true to size for me. I'm curvy in the hips, so that is where I have to watch out. The garmet measurements listed were spot on. The hidden button placket and the chest pocket add interest. The hem is nicely contoured on the sides and is lower in back. I will roll the sleeves for summer wear. Tunic length is not too long, and I'm average height. I do not find this linen to be rough or too stiff, as noted in previous reviews. It has a nice hand right out of the bag. I can't wait to wear it with regular length linen pants or cropped pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxed but flattering...size up I love this shirt. I went for the windowpane print, which is lovely in person, and ordered one up from my usual GH size for a perfect fit. I usually wear XS / 2 in Garnet Hill, but based on the garment measurements I went for size 4 and it's perfect. I highly recommend selecting your size according to the specific garment measurements, rather than your usual size—for example I also own GH's "easy linen tunic" and that garment is sized much larger (that XS shirt is much larger than this shirt at a size 4). This shirt has a slightly relaxed fit but the curved hem, side slits, and slight high/low effect from front to back make it flattering rather than boxy (I tend to hate boxy) on my slim, straight-ish frame. As other reviewers have mentioned it arrives slightly stiff, but in my experience most linen arrives that way and it's nothing that a quick wash and low-heat tumble dry can't fix. I appreciate that GH's linen shirts don't shrink on a low heat dry; that's what makes them softer the longer you own them. In short, this is a great shirt in my opinion and I'd order in more colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely shirt, but . . . This is a lovely shirt, but it seems to run a little small. I was expecting it to be a little full on the body, but to my surprise it was not. I still like it a lot, but I won't be buying another one. I would recommend it to a friend, but with the caveat, "buy a larger size than usual."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, well made top. Love the top, but do need a camisole underneath(I bought in white). The body length is great, but sleeves were a bit short on my 5’10” frame. Rolled them up, so all good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabric, color Great shirt, however, the cut was smaller than expected. I am tall with broad shoulders. I usually order XL. The cut was a little skimpy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pull overs not working for me I like this blouse, but pull overs are not working for me, a little too tight across the breast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ran very Small Such a cute linen shirt but ran extremely small. I am a good size 10 or Medium, but this was so small could barely get over my head. Maybe mismarked???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice shirt Like this shirt. Didn't find it stiff like some other reviewers. Did need to send back for larger size than I usually wear, runs small through bust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Very nice linen tunic length shirt. Not as soft as I'd hoped, but a hard wash/dry may help. I'm often between a 6 & 8, and in this top the 6 fit perfectly but tight across the bust. I settled on the 8, and will roll the sleeves. Good mono-chrome windowpane plaid, will compliment both jeans and black hiking pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely linen shirt I loved the fabric and style, but alas my usual size (M) was too small and had to return. Would have exchanged it for a L, but they were sold out.

what is size difference between 0 and 2? I am 5' and 100 lbs. Usually GH is too large so I thought to order 0 but comments about it running small make me think 2. I have large shoulders for my height Usually PXS is perfect.
