Bought this shirt for both my husband and my son in XL Tall. The quality is excellent. Colors are better than on line -- brighter and deeper. If washed in cold water on delicate, it does shrink a tiny bit but as it comes a tiny bit larger than other shirts it works out just fine. Here in Florida, our winter clothes are dark cottons, so this shirt works for both summer and winter! Algarve shirts are not cheap, but we purchased the shirts on sale and the price was more than fair.
The material in this shirt is a bit heavier than I thought it wold be, but that's a plus, because it works for cool springs as well as hot summers. I'm a perfect medium, except my arms are long, and I really appreciate shirts whose sleeves are just right. I hate it when cuffs creep up. This shirt is in the ""10"" category and I will probably buy another.
Nice shirt but it shrinks
I bought this for my son in an XLT, his usual size, but he thought it was too big so we exchanged it for a L (regular). It fit great. . . then it shrank, gradually, over a number of washings. So now it's too small, and obviously we should have stuck with the original size. A bit frustrating, given the lost investment (2 shirts), and it never seems to be on sale. Otherwise it's a nice shirt, great lightweight fabric. I would recommend it if you take the sizing and shrinking into account.
