Fantastic shirt - arrived fast

Ordered Large Linen shirt on Thursday via
phone and it arrive Saturday. Wow! Was not
expecting it until the middle of the following
week. The shirt fits great! I normally wear an XL, I tried a friend’s L shirt on and it fit great!
Not tight, and not too loose…just right. Love the shirt!

great shirt

Excellent shirt. Definitely get this one over the cotton one. Although linen is supposedly more prone to shrinkage, these are made pre-shrunk. Wash in cold (or hand wash) and line dry. I experienced NO shrinkage whatsoever, unlike the disastrous results I had with the cheaper cotton shirt.

Excellent shirt

Not only these shirts, but all the clothing items made by Townsends are the real deal. These are not some cheap costume but actual real every day wearing type of clothes. I've worn mine daily while doing chores such as working in the garden, mowing and other yard work, construction of an out building, the list goes on but I'm sure you get the idea.

Qualitiy shirt

Fits perfectly, glad I odered the 4XL as any tighter around the neck would have been a no go. Otherwise nice and airy as it should be.

Most often worn shirt

I have at least three, two in natural linen and one white. I really like these shirts. Really well made, durable and strong, but surprisingly cool on hot days. Dampen the sleeves with water and it is like turning on the AC.
