1. Men’s Clothing: George Classic Fit Short Sleeve Button Down Shirt Review

Share

Introduction

I am very disappointed with the George classic fit short sleeve shirt that I purchased for my husband. It runs really small and my husband is always a size large. When he finally got it and tried it on, he was surprised to see his shirts from Kohls were larger than the one from George Juniors. It has been washed twice now and still looks too small and the fabric really hasn’t softened like the other shirts he has. The price of this item is outrageous compared to the shirts at Kohls. I would expect a quality item and feel like I am being used by the George brand. There are several other shirts at Kohls he could wear. I will never purchase any items from this company again.

Product Description

The shirt is supposed to be classic fit and regular length, but it seems more like a slim fit. The label also indicates that it was made in Bangladesh. It is a button front shirt with a pocket in the left chest. It does come with a stain stick to put on a stain and then wash it out immediately. Every one of the shirts that I purchased for him has those two stains in them from it, even though they were the same polyester type of material that was used to make them. I understand that it was the classic fit and regular length, but this shirt is not a classic fit in any way. There are no wrinkles and no crease lines down the front like in all other shirts purchased from George clothing company over the past 10 years.

Evaluation

I would like to return this shirt, but the Kohls website does not accept returns. I am not sure what the cost will be for my husband to ship it back to them. He would rather they fix it than have another one that runs too small. I have written to them and will continue to do so until I get a response regarding the proper shipping procedures for returning the shirt. Since it is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, I will also contact them about that.
We purchased this shirt in black and it was a size XL. The label inside read “George (Black) Classic Fit Short Sleeve (Size L). It was supposed to be a size large tall, but when my husband tried it on, the sleeves were short and it fit almost like a medium. When he checked the tag, he saw it had been cut in about three places and re-attached. I am guessing the person who did that thought that would make it fit better.
It was very thin material, and when he washed it, there were multiple holes in the pocket. I hope this shirt is not too expensive to return, because I think my husband will give up on trying to find a jacket that fits him properly.

2. How to Tell if a Button Down Shirt is the Right Length? Measure and Compare!

It is always best to measure your child for a shirt before you order it.to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim:the following information was sent to me and I have summarized it into the above paragraph – I have included the original email just in case.
“I have a 6 year old who is tall for his age and long for his height. I am looking at purchasing him a Riverdale gear shirt in the “small” size. (He wears 18 month-4T size.) I can’t find anywhere online that shows the GIRTH of the shirts – only what the length measurement is in inches. Can you help?
The following measurements are for a Toddler 18-24 months. If the child is 2-4 years old you will want to measure their body (not neckline) and compare it to the measurements below. Also, if they wear a size 2 or 3T they will need the 4T size shirt.
The rise on a child’s shirt should be three fingers above their waist line. Measure the width of the child’s chest and neck (removing their shirt slightly) at the widest part of the chest and neck. That measurement, in inches, will give you shirt length. Measurements for a shirt with a 2/2 chest and neck:
Chest: 21 1/4 in.
