J.Crew Buffalo Check Boy Shirt review

Ugh. Did I really diss this shirt, earlier on? I should hang my head in shame, since I confused this with the Suckered Gingham Shirt, which really does, ah, kinda suck, quality-wise.

Buffalo Check Boy... is a beautiful shirt. I checked it out today, since I had to try on the Katelyn Ruffle Cardigan (more on the latter, later).

Of the other plaids at hand, nothing else appealed just yet. I tried on the
Flannel tuxedo tunic
--it's relatively huge. I got into a size Small, before realizing it could make an interesting dress in a larger size (yup, it's long too). But am I in the market for a plaid dress? I like the idea, but this is not the one.

Tomboy plaid boy shirt--pleasant, but too casual to do much with.

Herringbone plaid boy shirt--likewise.

What I liked about Buffalo Check Boy... is that it really was different from a man's shirt, but in a good way. It was its own shirt. I liked the blue one best; the blue was just a tad too bright to be worn by a man. Rose Dust looked pretty, but felt less useful to me personally. I didn't spot the other two colors, but was pretty sure they'd had Autumn Sunset and the black-and-white one, last time I'd gone (hadn't gravitated towards either).

Buffalo Check Boy... was cotton, but I had to double check the label; the fabric felt as if it had been blended with rayon or silk. Another plus, since that made it more work-friendly.

Size 10 fit me comfortably (34DD), with the sleeves slightly long (I have average-sized arms, nothing special). The body of the shirt was on the long side too.
