I tossed the J.Crew Perfect Shirt into my Schoolboy Blazer order because I’ve had gingham on the brain, and realized I’d never tried J.Crew’s button down shirts before. So why not give it a shot, right? Here she is in size 00P.

View from the side:
The shirt lays pretty flat from the front, but the views from the back and side show just much extra fabric there is. This shirt would definitely need a side slimming on someone my size.
The fabric is nice, thick and crisp, and I appreciate the nicely buttoned cuffs. The sleeves are a tad too long on me, but not by much. The sides obviously need slimming, and I haven’t decided if I’d have the sleeves slimmed as well.
If I could find this shirt on deep discount (maybe not this same color or print, but same style), I’d consider getting it altered (after a few wash cycles with the intent to shrink). It’s definitely all about the nice fabric for this one.
Size 00P Product Details (laying flat):
Now I’m wondering…I picked this shirt because it came in size 00P, but the Stretch Perfect Shirts come in letter sizing, with xsp as the smallest.
Has anyone tried both the Stretch Perfect Shirt and the Perfect Shirt that can compare the sizing? I’m curious because stretch usually means the garment runs a little small.
