The quality of this Linen is quite premium & the Navy is a perfect rich shade. Initially the Linen is a little stiff but will soften with a few wears/washes. I have re-purchased this as I find it a really practical (& classic) staple. The sizing is true to size, infact due to the design (inc side seam splits), only if you care to you may go size down. My only complaint would be I find the neckline annoying after a long wear as its too high but wide, so I am always having to keep pulling it back up in o place. I would love to see this item in a V-Neck & with a larger colour option.
