comfortable yet dressy
I bought a large (I'm 5' 9" and 155 lbs, 34B) because my climber biceps and lats tend to be too big for fitted shirts. The first things I noticed was that this shirt is long enough not to gap when I sit down. Huge plus! The shoulders are just a tad narrow for me, but not enough to affect the way the shirt lays. I like the 3/4 sleeve with the option to button, again, since the sleeves of fitted shirts like this tend to be too short because of my build. The fabric is stiff before the first wash but is very soft and comfortable afterwards. The color and cut are very feminine, which offsets the fact that it is Carhartt. It's now my go-to shirt for job interviews and dressy dinners.

Great everyday shirt
Although fit is a bit on the small side, the material gives and looks great both alone and layered. Definitely would buy another in one of the other colors. And as it was on sale, the price could not be beat. really like the altrec.com website. It is easy to use and the product comes in a prompt manner.

I don't usually do plaids, but this shirt looks great and the fit is feminine and flattering. I like that the sleeves roll up and secure with a button tab since I hate having sleeves in the way. The medium I ordered fit just as I like, which wasn't the case for another button-down shirt by the same maker that I had to return because it was too large. I'll probably end up getting another color in addition to the pink that I have now.

I always have a hard time finding button up shirts that fit right in all the right places, but this shirt is pretty close to perfect! I have wide shoulders and a larger chest, and this shirt fits great, no gapping buttons or tight yoke, but the cut trims in at the waist and then flares a little at the hips. Looks very feminine, while looking "rugged" and the fabric isn't too stiff or too floppy. I also love love love 3/4 length sleeves, so happy to find all these great features in one shirt, with great colors.
