Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

I bought this in green. Sleeves fit great, over-all fit is great. Price won't break the bank.

I'm not ready to wear this out in public yet, as it needs to be a bit warmer. If I get another
it will be in the blue. The web looks like a denim but seeing it in the store, is more of
a uniform-dark blue.

Hmmm! Interesting! I think I could make a dress like that work!

You probably could Jeff. :D The length is slightly below the knee on me
and I'm 6" 2" tall. Your slender build would work better than my 'rotundness' ;)

It is a wee bit tight in the upper arms when raising over my head, but not
bothersome as some other types can be. The size is a XXXL(20) but it doesn't
come any larger. (Misses or Junior's section, just under Womens and/or plus).
If this was in the Women's size, I'ld call it a slightly oversized XL but not a full XXL
This brand allows me to wear a 20 where others it means a 22 to 24 to get proper
fit in the upper torso/chest area. The sleeve length is good on my long arms.
Granted, even with a long sleeve shirt, the cuffs tend to move up my arms when
reaching for something.

The price point won't break the bank and I did get a second one in Blue :oops:

Well, I’m also 6 foot 2, so the length would be the same for me. My size would be large (12-14). I must say I like the coral color, perfect for spring, and I have a pair of heeled white sandals that would work perfectly.

I love that coral colour! Spectacular.
Is the sizing accurate? I would be a size 4 ?

Purchased these in a XXXL and they "Just Fit". They don't slide down after being
buttoned. They do have a 'hidden' button on the inside of the waistband. Love
how they flow as you're walking and don't cause a hassle in windy conditions.
OH - Great price, too :!: :D
