Rated 5 out of 5┬áby AB115 Urban Safari Fun
I love the tencel material Cloth and Stone uses for their buttondowns. So soft, nice drape, etc. I ordered this in the green in my usual size xs and the fit was perfect. I'm not sure what a previous reviewer experienced in terms of sizing - definitely no need to size up. I'm 34-26-36, 34b, for reference and there was no pulling across my chest at all. The xs fit beautifully - tailored but still plenty of room to be comfy. The green version of this top has a bit of a "safari" feel = windswept, sundrenched, and just a little rugged.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby AnthroKid Beautiful quality, odd fit across the chest
This is a very nice shirt. The fabric is thick without being too heavy. I love general look and feel of it, and I can tell it can wear it through the summer and it will still be cool.
I also experienced the odd fit. I usually take a M in Anthro tops, sometimes an L if the shoulders are narrow. I took an L in this top because I have another cloth and stone shirt that's a medium and it pulls a little across the chest and shoulders, but fits everywhere else. However, when I tried this shirt on, it still pulled across the chest, but was somewhat large everywhere else. I do have a wider back and am a 36C, but I feel like it's a bit odd that the shirt is actually slightly large in the shoulders, yet still tight in the chest.
I think an XL would just be giant on me since the shirt is supposed to s bait slouchy, so this may have to go back. That said, I do think this is a nice, high quality shirt that would really be a wardrobe staple. I think it's just not for ladies with wider backs or bigger chests.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby LadyLion Great shirt with quirky fit
This is a Cloth & Stone shirt and I always find their fit a bit quirky: Shoulder seams are always too far off the shoulder, sleeves are long. I usually take a medium, but need the Large in this so I think overall it runs small except for the odd shoulder seams. I'm a 38C but size 6 on bottom and this shirt actually isn't bad, I'm keeping it. I love the chest pockets and how they are stitched....and double pockets are great for preventing lack of coverage you know where. The sleeves are really long.....I have long arms to begin with and I have to roll up the cuff....fortunately it rolls easily up one length of the cuff. I don't like it rolled up and buttoned to make the sleeve shorter and won't wear it that way because there's simply too much fabric from the extra long sleeves. Tencel is a great feeling fabric but the shirt arrived very wrinkled....just a side effect of tencel I think. Worth it though for the smoothness. There is an odd little pointed angle at the side of the bottom hem which is a bit wide for me but I don't mind that either....it could be taken in but I'm leaving it. Overall a good basic shirt but may need alterations if you have small shoulders or even normal length arms. I do like the length as it can be belted, tucked or worn out easily.
