"Wash it first to soften the fabric, makes all the difference"

I really like these shirts in all the colors. The white one has been my favorite and still looks good after 3years. I had ordered the black one previously and returned it as didn't feel the fabric was the same quality. This year tried it again and was happier with it, washed it and am happy with the result.

"Pretty Shirt; disappointing fit"

This was much smaller than I expected. Would advise buying a size up. Pretty shirt, too bad I had to return for a refund

"Major Disappointment"

The white one is great! I wear it all the time. The black one is a totally different fabric. It's stiff and scratchy, and the size runs smaller. It was a major disappointment. How can the same product offered in two colors be so completely different from each other? I'll be VERY unlikely to buy from NG again.
