This shirt's texture definitely takes on a canvas appearance and the fabric has some heft to it, but the silk keeps it soft. The cut is nice, not too baggy through the ribs, and fabric weight gives it a good drape. The color I ordered (green) is true to the online pictures. I ordered a large but ended up exchanging it for a medium. The large could have worked but the medium fit looks more polished (I'm 5'-11"", 190 lbs). The medium arrived with flawed fabric - it looked like potato chip grease stirations on one side, so I ended up exchanging for a different shirt altogether. However, one random flaw aside, this is a nice shirt.
