I ordered the black and grey striped shirt. It's kind of okay but overall it's pretty much a disappointment.
The shirt is lightweight--not heavy duty "real" rugby shirt fabric. It looks okay but the knit material is pretty thin. It's not even as thick as the cheap Russell Athletic sweatshirt I ordered at the same time, if that comparison helps anyone. The collar is really a hunk of junk (MORE ON THIS IN THE UPDATE BELOW). Out of the package, it's wrinkled and cheap looking. The collar fabric is so thin it turns to an even bigger mass of wrinkles when it comes out of the dryer. Flattening it out to hold down the wrinkles doesn't work--it just takes a set where it wrinkles up. I will not be ironing the collar on this shirt every time it's washed so I will be wearing it with a crappy wrinkled collar.
The fit is okay but even that is a bit off. While Amazon's description of the shirt says it's 100% cotton, it is actually 77% cotton and 23% polyester. That was another disappointment when I opened the package. Some of the reviews had indicated the shirt will shrink so I had ordered it in 3XL, expecting it to shrink enough to fit loosely since I wear 2XL shirts. Well it fit fairly well out of the package, like a 2XL fits me normally. And since it's not really 100% cotton, it doesn't appear to have shrunk any after two washes. Thank goodness for mistakes that work out okay in the end.
Honestly, this shirt should cost about $20 given the quality of the fabric used. On the plus side, it looks to be well made with good stitching and it shows no evidence of fading after washing a couple of times. It fits a bit small for the marked size 3XL but that worked out well in my case. Some of the shirts might shrink, I dunno because mine was a cotton/polyester blend, contrary to the description, and mine did not shrink much if any at all. I was tempted to send this back for a refund but decided to go ahead and keep it. I only intend to wear it around the house anyway. Except for the wrinkled collar, it looks okay.
UPDATE TO ORIGINAL REVIEW 02/04/2019:
I'm revising my rating to ZERO stars. I've become totally frustrated with this shirt to the point it's now in a bag that's going to Goodwill. Why? The damn collar. Every time I wash the shirt the collar comes out of the dryer so wrinkled it's unwearable without ironing. I have no patience with this. I even considered cutting the collar off the shirt.
Do yourself a favor, buy a sweatshirt. Amazon has some nice Russell Athletic and Gilden sweatshirts for reasonable prices and they're at least wearable.
