I have the unisex Breton shirt, and this is a nicer fit. I got the size 10, one size up from my normal size. I’m about 5’7” and 145 lbs.
I love the traditional heavy weight cotton for the cooler months. This top is beautifully made, but do consider sizing up 1 or 2 sizes as it runs small. This is a quality garment that is a classic and if cared for properly, will last for years.
