- Not sure what the bad reviews are about?? by David
Great looking shirt! Fit exactly how I wanted it to. Not baggy or loose in the arms. It was everything I was hoping it was. I will say the shirt is a "tad" short, but it doesn't come un-tucked. Other reviewer must be in denial about his size. Cheers!
- Beautiful Shirt - Awful Fit by Andrew
I was so excited when I received this shirt as a gift. It was tailored to the size that I order in all my dress shirts (16.0 x 35). However, the fit of the shirt is just completely off. The sleeves are at least an inch too short and the length of the shirt itself is far shorter than one would expect, and this leads to it coming untucked at times throughout the day. (For comparison - the 16.0 x 35 slim fit from JCrew is a near perfect fit with the sleeves being just a smidgen long.) The sleeves are so short that I'm forced to wear them rolled up and I cannot even wear it with my Bonobos Foundation suit because the shirt sleeve will not show under the suit sleeve. Even though this is a beautiful shirt in a design that can be difficult to find, I would use caution before adding this to your dress shirt collection.
From Bonobos: Andrew, thanks for the feedback. We passed it on to the product team. Let the Ninjas know if we can help out in any way.
- tailored for who? by Andrew
I hate to give any Bonobos product a poor review because I really like the site, they have phenomenal customer service and 9/10 products I've purchased here have fit great. This shirt, however, did not live up to expectations, or its description for that matter. I bought this shirt after owning their original slim fit that is now discontinued thinking it would be similar. Although listed as a tailored fit, this shirt is not trimmer or slimmer than your normal shirt cut. After providing essentially the same critique via a post-purchase review, a Ninja responded (to my surprise) and informed me that the tailored fit is actually a looser fitting cut than their standard fit. All in all, this shirt has way too much fabric around the midsection and under the arms.
- Great fit, great look. by James
I didn't have any purple shirts in my wardrobe, so I decided to give this one a try as soon as I received it. I have a wider shoulder and chest area, so I went with a 16x33. It wasn't too tight or loose. Having never worn purple, I wasn't used to the color on me, but when I took it out to dinner that night, I received a lot of compliments from the females in the group about it. Awesome.
