Tall Chambray Review

By now you know I’m a fan of chambray right?  I probably have about 5 chambray items in my closet- some I’ve had for years, some I’ve just purchased.  Like this shirt:

 Does it look familiar?  I wrote about it in this post.  And clearly I couldn’t get it out of my head after that.  I waited a while before pulling the trigger but when I saw it was still hanging out in my cart (and under $20 with discounts), I went for it.  As you saw here, I had a chambray button down but it was darker and I thought this light color would be perfect for summer.  I ordered it and…

Pros: runs truer to size.  I usually wear a medium in button downs.  The first chambray shirt I had to return for a small.  This one I ordered in my typical size and it was perfect.  I prefer ordering a medium over a small because they’re usually longer and that was the case here.  The shirt tails are plenty long enough.  I love the light tone and you can’t beat the price!

Cons: I know the sleeves come rolled up and they are going for a ¾ length sleeve but I Just hate that when you roll the sleeves down, they’re not long.  I’d say they’re a tiny bit longer than your average shirt but certainly not “Tall” sized.  I’m 6 feet so if you’re taller they’d be like a normal shirt on you.  That’s really the only con though.

I wore them with my red jeans and loved the look. Plus it was super comfortable!  If you love chambray like I do, here are a few more chambray goodies:

    Tiffany,
    I am glad you reviewed this shirt. I also bought this shirt, but in the mid-tone and have worn it with so many things and at least once a week. I love it with my hot pink jeans and with my skinny green jeans. I do wish the sleeves were around 1″ longer, so I’ve been wearing it rolled up. Overall, It’s a great price and fits well.

  2. I also tried this piece and it didn’t work as well for me. I’m between sizes at Old Navy, so the XL was too big (I’m a 14) but the Large was too narrow across the shoulders. I’m happy it worked for you though, and a bit jealous!
