These Port Authority shirts tend to run a little small. I usually wear a Large. I bought this shirt before in a Large and it was a little tight in the arms and in the bust area. This time I bought an XL and it fits just right. I don't wear my shirts oversized but prefer a relaxed fit. The 65% Polyester / 35% Cotton is soft against the skin. The shirt washes well in cold water, and I put it in the dryer on Low for 20 minutes, then hang it to dry the rest of the way. It probably won't shrink being a poly/cotton mix, but I don't want to take the chance.
I'm not exactly impressed with the shirt. I ordered a small in white and xs in black and it fits more like a medium or large. The quality of the fabric is very soft the buttons and stitching are of good quality as well. The neck and color of T-shirt hold but the fabric is a little on the thin side as I did get the white shirt so an undershirt will be required. On the upside it's not a bad shirt overall and the shipping came on time without delay or any problems.
It's an OK polo. Fits about right for the size I ordered except that it is very long. I need to cut about 3-4" off the length. I don't know why it's called "silk touch." Nothing silky about it, just a regular knit polo. One thing I really didn't like is that it came with a very itchy tag at the back of the neck. I had to cut that out before I even could wear it. Overall, it was just OK. I probably could have gotten one of a higher quality at Lands End or LL Bean for about the same price. I won't be ordering another.
I got the white shirt for work. It's comfortable, is well made and it washes well. When I need more, I will definitively consider the product again. For modesty sake the white fabric is some what translucent, but not too much. You will be comfortable wearing this without an under shirt.
I think they run slightly small. Considering I needed them for work, I wanted some room to move so I returned the large for an XL. The L fit, but I feel more comfortable in the XL. I needed a WHITE collared polo or button down shirt and this was perfect because of the 3/4 length sleeve. I serve food and have old lady arms and didn't want to have to roll up long sleeves that won't stay put. I've washed them and they don't shrink. It's comfortable (except for the typical itchy tag which I need to cut out). I recommend them. I might get another color for everyday wear.
If I ordered a larger size than I would normally need because I've found that Port Authority tops tend to run small, does that mean it "fit as expected"? I went a little overboard and the top is a little baggy, especially in the sleeve below the elbow. I can easily put two fingers in the gap. I have a 44" bust and a 2XL is supposed to fit 43-46", so I should have just ordered that size instead of going up a size.
I was already familiar with the Port Authority brand as I had purchased one short sleeve polo locally. Since I'd rather not do laundry every day and this is part of my work uniform I needed more.
I have old lady upper arms that are best kept covered, even in hot weather. This 3/4 length sleeve polo shirt is just what I wanted. I ordered a size up based on reviews here, and am glad I did. The fit isn't too tight. The shirt is a nice fabric for warm weather wear. The shirts wash well (warm water) and come out of the dryer (medium/low heat) looking just fine. I've ordered more colors in this shirt because I like it so much. This is a really good shirt, especially for the price.
I normally wear a size 2X, so that's what I ordered. I should've ordered the 3X to start with. I have since ordered TWO of the 3X, and am still waiting for their arrival after almost a month now. Am beginning to wonder if I'm not supposed to have them at all.
I do love it - it has become my favourite top thank you donna
Amazing perfect fit. Quality is good. Especially the zipper.
Too wide in the shoulders but narrow in the waste
cheaper material...thought I ordered black...got blue...
