The Best of Patagonia
The Pima cotton shirt may be the best product that Patagonia makes. I have been wearing them for almost 30 years. My oldest one finally blew out a pocket, so I replaced it.

The only minor negative is that it needs to be ironed. Its worth the trouble!
The sizing is a moving target. Some years a large fits fine then not any longer and you need to size up. The sleeves are also cut very tight as well. The fabric is thinner as well. The hand feel is very good. I wish these were still produced in Portugal though. That was a superior product. Still have a few old ones left and love those shirts. All t...

Thanks for the honest feedback. In the future we're always happy to provide current garment dimensions before you make a purchase.
This is my favorite shirt to wear. I own 3 and honestly, could own more. They are soft, comfortable, and pair with just about anything. They wrinkle, but a quick pass with an iron fixes that. I wear these for work, casual, and anytime I want to be in more than a t-shirt or a pullover. The fit is roomy, but over time and washings it shrinks a bit. T...

What's not to like.?
I LOVE my new shirt. Organic Pima Cotton.., what's not to like.? Soft and gorgeous, but Patagonia durable. Sleeves are a bit long, more like 33-34. I'm a 32 sleeve. But that's typical with most shirts I buy that don't offer different sleeve lengths. I have three of these shirts.
Sharp and comfortable shirt
I now own three of these shirts. They are among my favorites and I'm always happy to find them hanging in the closet and ready to put on.

A long tradition...
I've been purchasing and wearing these Pima Cotton shirts (and whatever it was Patagonia called them prior to the mid-2000s) since the late 1980s. In fact, I still have a mid-90s version and up until not too long ago an '86 and '88 Patagonia lightweight 'flannel' shirt. There are two main things I like about these shirts (a... Read Morend almost all of Patagonia wear.) The first is that they run true-to-size, year-after-year even if I don't always follow the same pattern myself. I am 6'-0", usually around 195-205 lbs., and always purchase a large. They always fit. Not all clothesmakers can say this. Most can't. The second thing I like about them is they are the perfect weight for the west coast climate. Not too warm at the beach on a summer evening. Warm enough around the house by itself over a T-shirt, or outdoors under a fleece jacket or heavier shirt jacket in Pacific Northwest winters. I find similar shirts from east coast and Midwest manufacturers too often too heavy for our mild west coast climate. Finally, the third of the two things I like best about them is that they last a really long time. I wear these shirts year-round and one will last me 4-6 years easy and sometimes longer before they begin to fray around the collar. .. Improvements: I preferred the older more traditional colors and plaid patterns Patagonia offered at one time. Styles change over the years, but it would be nice if they offered a few more traditional 'flannel' plaid or checkered designs every now and then. But that is a minor issue.
Lightweight but warm long flannel
I received one of these for a gift, then bought two more. I wanted a lightweight flannel-like shirt that fit a little loose. Can't stand the fitted flannel shirts, and this is really perfect. The color combinations are so much better than anything else I've purchased by other manufacturers, and this style is extremely soft.

I was really bummed to realize the size is off in these types of shirts. I am usually a medium in most of Patagonia's products. Unfortunately, I had to return for a size Small. The quality is superb, as well as the comfort. The colors are beautiful. The quality is classic Patagonia sturdy reliability. Just get a size down.
The Holy Grail Of Shirts
I have been buying Pima Cotton Shirts for 30 years. The design and fit have been constant. They are handsome and versatile. They last forever- I am mourning a 25 year old one that just wore through. Make sure that you pick a pattern that you like- you will have your shirt for a very long time!
Yum pima cotton!
I bought this long sleeve plaid thinking of winter. Fits a little big but you can get an under layer in there. Definitely long enough that you'll want to tuck it in, ergo formal casual.

Excellent shirt, just one minor change
These are beautiful shirts all around and a perfect mid weight layer for fall days or summer nights out camping. I own two of them.

It would go from an active shirt to a shirt I could wear all day. Other than that, theyre super well-made and Im sure Ill have them for years so long as my armpit region doesnt grow any larger haha
The Pima Cotton is a great shirt. The length is perfect for tucking in at work or for untucked casual wear. It is super soft and comfortable, and has held up well. My only complaint is with the upper arm fit. There is way too much fabric in the upper arm. A little trimming of this fabric and this would be a perfect shirt.
Pick a color, any color, and it will exceed your expectations.
Would trade the shirt on my back for one of these. Each shirt illustrates a complex array of colors, while ironing them I fell in love all over again. The sleeve length is about two inches longer which is great, the buttons are substatial which really pop out in public.

Cant say I climb mountains, or snow ski from the top of the peaks but I do use these for survival amongst the rough terrain with other humans in my big city. Great gear, and the service at Patagonia is spot on.
Comfy, great fit
Comfortable shirt that fits true to size. It looks like it would be heavy, but it's actually thin and breathable. However, not too thin. I'd say it is a happy medium between a summer t shirt and a flannel. I've been rocking mine on 75 degree late summer days, and 50-60 degree nights. Combined with a Synchilla Vest it's money.
I bought a Pima cotton flannel many years ago, and the shirt has worn like iron. Its unstoppable. I just bought a large since the XL from yesteryear was always on the bigger side and Izvestia lost a few pounds. The Large is great and Im looking forward to wearing it this fall and winter.
So soft and comfy
These shirts are super soft and comfortable. The color and patterns are attractive. Perfect for wearing to work, lounging around the house, or out for a hike. The cut is a little loose, but it is a relaxed cut. I like the shirts enough that I bought 2 more shortly after buying my first 2.
Nice enough to lounge in yet excellent enough for work days. Well made, slight shrinkage over time, colors hold fast. Great value for the price. Got some many its ridiculous but dont need lesser quality, Dads lesson to me. Buy quality once, itll cost less in the end Sage advice lve always used
Love at first touch.
Soft, super-high-quality cotton, good fit (I like this type of shirt to be a little loose, and it is), and some very nice patterns and colors. More blues please, Patagonia. Quality and look is easily high enough for a non-formal-dress workplace. I could live in these for spring, summer and fall.
This shirt feels really great on the skin. It's probably a little heavier than your usual button down shirt, but it's not quite as heavy as a flannel shirt. The fit is spot on. I will wear this shirt for a very wide variety of circumstances. Extremely versatile. I love everything about this shirt.
Iconic for a reason
I buy at least one Pima cotton shirt each season. So comfortable and versatile with a soft hand and great designs. Mine get heavy use.

I would give this shirt 5 stars if it was more relaxed (like the snap shirts), because I don't necessarily want a tailored fitting flannel. A... Read Morelso, for the price, Patagonia should size their products by neck and sleeve size. All that said, I continue to buy this style shirt because of the quality.
Great shirts, dull colors and patterns the last several years
I've bought many of these shirts over the years. They are good shirts, but in the last several years it's been hard to find colors and patterns that I like. Lately they've been mostly very muted colors and patterns that seem more appropriate for living and working in a rural area. I've bought some, but I feel like I'm settl...

a favorite 'flannel' (Long-Sleeved Pima Cotton Shirt)
I suppose we all have a favorite shirt. This product has been my favorite shirt for close to 30 years. In fact, I probably still have at least one Patagonia Pima cotton shirt from c.1988 I still wear. I don’t know if they called it Pima Cotton Shirt at the time. I call it my ’88 Patagonia. I buy one of these most years. Sometimes two of the same if... Read More I like the pattern so I can have a back-up when the first hits the rag bin (if it ever does). The reasons, in no particular order: I wear a large. Always have. Hope to always do so. Sizing is consistent year after year and has been for probably at least 30 years on this shirt (one of the key reason I like Patagonia in general). I mostly order online these days and there is absolutely no concern with Patagonia on sizing. The weight is perfect for west coast winters (And springs. And summers. And falls). I consider these flannels, even though they technically might not be – I don’t know. But they aren’t the mid- or heavyweight flannels from peer companies back East or in the Midwest, which I find too hot to wear in Seattle for all but the coldest days. However, the Patagonias aren't not too light either. Aside from one or two years in the early 2000’s, the buttons and stitching last. For one who never returns goods, even I returned one of these shirts due to broken buttons after a few washes back in the early 2000’s. Or maybe it was after a year of use. I think they were trying a new ‘eco’ button back then. Patagonia repaired the shirt quickly and sent it back to me. I owned it until a few years ago. I haven’t had broken button issues since. They learned their lesson and fixed the issue – permanently. The only time I finally give up on these shirts is when the fabric on the collar or wrist ‘collars’ finally begins to fray and tatter. Even after that has started I still can wear them for another year or two before they become unwearable. I’m wearing one from at least 2014 this morning – I know because I have a photo from 2014 where I’m wearing it. Only recently has the tattering started and I wear this shirt all of the time.
Excellent feel - warmth - durability
Love the pima cotton shirt! Haven't owned one for many years and the recent model has an updated collar that resists wrinkling better. Also, since it is a relaxed fit, the size Small fits me better (for a less baggy fit) as opposed to when I wear Slim Fit garments in a size Medium.
Patagonia's sizing keeps shifting. Coats, pants, fine. shirts, seem to be inconsistent. one time a large fits, next time it doesn't and an extra large is needed. Makes ordering on line a hassle. love the idea of organic cotton... feels far better than recycled plastic.

The shirt of choice
I have had a Pima button down for as long as I can remember, passed down to me from my dad when he was my age. I finally bought my own and could not be happier with how well this shirt works for every occasion, dress it up dress it down it doesn’t matter it will work. I couldn’t be happier.

Great Shirt, Misleading Color
I just received my Pima Cotton in Paddler; Shadow Blue, in the mail, and while I love the fit and feel and quality of the shirt (I own several of them), I actually had to go to the Patagonia Website to confirm that the color I received was actually the color I had ordered; they bear only the barest suggestion of a resemblance to each other. The blu... Read Moree in the website’s photographs is vibrant, almost electric, whereas the shirt I received was almost dull and washed out by comparison. The blue is closer to a listless gray in the shirt I received. I suppose I must wear it only on sunny days or perhaps in well-lit rooms to capture the same color as the photograph. I’m not certain whether or not I’m will keep the shirt or send it back (I do hate returns), but while I can recommend the quality of the shirt, I cannot recommend it in Paddler; Shadow Blue, unless you would prefer in in a washed out version of the one depicted. I am rarely disappointed by Patagonia products, but I am not nearly satisfied by this recent purchase. So as far as this particular color goes, I would advise the buyer to beware.
Reliable, versatile piece--alway check the fit
Great shirts. I've been buying them since the 90s and have gradually assembled a wardrobe for everyday of the week during cold weather months.

Great everyday shirt
I was surprised by how lightweight it is. It's great as a thin layer underneath a heavy coat on cold days or on its own when the weather is mild.

Soft,runs a bit large
Very soft and comfortable. Almost feels like a flannel to the touch,but thinner of course. Runs a bit big. I'm a medium and it's way too roomy under the arms and chest. Wrinkles a bit coming out of the dryer,like a lot of these thinner button ups to. Collar can be pain to keep down if it doesn't dry quite right.

Comfortable,great colors--just a little large
Typical Patagonia workmanship in an excellent color. I do feel as if this shirt ran a little large for my build (5'9'',190) and I'm not exactly a slender individual. This is based on the fact that I have a similar organic Pima cotton shirt from 2013 that fits me perfectly,so I'm wondering why is running larger.
Striking colors and comfortable
Washed it before wearing once. The shirt is a heavy but comfortable cotton,looks nice and is well made. I am slim,but even so it is baggy for a medium. I have long arms but the sleeves are still long. All comments are within acceptable limits and I look forward to enjoying it for many years
This shirt feels great and provides just enough warm to take off the chill. Also good sun protection in cooler weather. Does well in the wash. And if you HAVE to wear a buttoned shirt,this is great! My son loves his as well. My last old one is now my favorite "around the house only" shirt.

Great shirt but . . .
The style of this shirt is great but old and boring. It needs a button down collar and a shirt tail so it can be worn not tucked in.

I own two and just ordered one more. I am a 5'6" tall and 145 lbs guy who has a hard time finding proper fitting shirts. I ended ordering the XS size and the fit is perfect for my body. I wear size 30" pants and I have an athletic build. Normally, size small shirts are too long on the sleeves and shirt length falls bellow mid zipper.... Read More Slim fits and sometimes regular fits tend to be too tight on my upper body. Given that this shirt is a relaxed fit I was able to go down a size to XS and voila, enough room, the shirt length and sleeves are perfect. Very happy. The quality is excellent and the material is soft but strong. I wish they had more colors available. I would add about an extra inch to the shoulders and it would be 6 stars out of 5.
Praise for Pima Cotton Shirt
Purchased this shirt recently and love it. Have been collecting these for a few years now. Normally wear a medium but ordered this in small, as the sizing has changed. Recommend ordering one size down. These are extremely comfortable, well-made shirts. No surprise. Colors are muted.
I have 5 of these now. The newest is a nice neutral plaid and has the same comfortable fit. Looks good untucked over a T or tucked in. This one seems to have a nice, somewhat tighter weave but is still soft and high quality. It's from China; a few of the others were sourced from Morocco but it doesn't matter. Same top-tier quality. All i... Read Moren M are a perfect fit for me with a 33' sleeve, and average height. I opted for color 837 which looks great with khakis or jeans//
I have owned these shirts for over a decade it seems, and I love them, but for some reason they never did fit right. I'm 5'10, 190lbs, and I need an extra medium. The large is too long and the medium is a bit too tight in the chest. They have always been this way. The quality is great, the colors are great too, but I can't buy them a... Read Morenymore. This happens with a lot of Patagonia's shirts too. I'm only a 43 chest, but for some reason it feels like they make their shirts only for skinny guys with no chests. I mean, we are not all skinny climbers. Well, that's my rant. And I know it's just Patagonia too because I have other shirts from many other companies and their large and medium shirts feel more true to size.
Great shirt for office or the woods
This is a great lightweight shirt that I could easily wear to work or on a hike. I'd recommend this to anyone. I'm 6'2", 175lbs and got a large. It fits great through the body, good length in the sleeves, but cut a little wide in the shoulders, but not so wide that I could go down a size.
I agree, the fit is huge. This year, I had return a few mediums for smalls. One of the four smalls is rather small and the other are kinda medium (after a wash, the smallest of the small was unwearable :( I have been wearing patagonia long sleeve shirts for many years and like the other reviewer in this column suggested, things have changed a bit. ...

I own 2 of these shirts from prior years. After I washed them, they had the feel and appearance of light-weight traditional flannel. Not this year's model. The material is flimsy and thin and never developed the softness of my older pima shirts. Your customers expect more from you despite world cotton shortages. Charge more or explain why the ...

I prefer the look of the Buckshot Flannel....but this is a close second. Wear's well and very comfortable. Easy to pull out of the closet and wear. I have a few cotton button downs from Patagonia and they are my favorite shirts. Honestly if you pull them right out of the dryer (or line dry) and hang them, they won't wrinkle too bad.
Bad Sizing Chart
The sizing is way off I ordered a large, which in the past was my normal size with Patagonia. On this order I found that i am no longer a large size for clothing from Patagonia, and so I reordered and now the Medium is still very large on me. Let me note that I have not changed in size. So for me this was a 2 size change, which doesn't seem li... Read Moreke a reasonable expectation for customers. 'Relax Fit' must be code for size down, I wish I had the decoder ring. I would not buy this product through the mail only in the store. A 75 dollar shirt should met some sort of standardize sizing. I put 1 star because a shirt has to fit to be good.
Perfect, Except for Fit
Incredibly comfortable, excellent colors, but too much fabric for a well-fitting shirt. I really like how most of Patagonia's gear has an athletic, almost tailored cut (perfect for me normally at 6'1" and 175 lb), but there is just too much fabric in this "relaxed" fit shirt. I REALLY wanted to like it, but will have to ret... Read Moreurn it and wait until they go to a more tailored fit that, from other reviewers, Patagonia use to have. So - EXCELLENT quality, just not a good fit for my build.
Watch Out With Sizing
Last year this shirt was perfect. I'm not sure why they decided to change it, but they did. If you ordered this shirt last year the fit was "Regular". This year the shirt is "Relaxed". I'm 6'-1" 205 and the Large is gigantic on me. I actually had to give them to my brother who is 6'-0" 250 and they ... Read Morefit him great. If you like your shirts big, then just order your normal size. But if you like your shirts fitting like a typical shirt, I would be very careful.
I love these shirts (you can tell if you catch a glimpse of my closet). They are warm, soft, and extremely comfortable. If it's breezy outside, or the AC is on a bit high, I toss one of these puppies on, and I'm nice and toasty. The colors this season are quite fantastic, so far I have "McAdams: Raven" & "Carew: Blue Bu... Read Moretterfly", and am drooling over "Carew: Narwhal Grey". The only con is the shrinking with these shirts. They tend to shrink up a lot in length (both body & sleeves) but stay wide in the body. I buy them to fit, and don't dry them. That is KEY. DO NOT dry them if they fit perfectly, if you want to toss them in the dryer, by a size up. The feel of the fabric also changes after drying since this is a longer cotton fiber, there is a big difference in texture before & after drying. I definitely recommend picking some of these up before they sell out!
An always welcome favorite
I've owned these since they were first introduced and still have one from the mid 90s. Soft, durable, flannel w/o being "flannel", although I wish they went back to patterns that looked more like regular sport shirts. Perfect all around layer for a warm climate that occasionally gets real winter--more comfortable than a regular sport... Read More shirt, but not as heavy as flannel. The new bigger "relaxed" sizing makes it easier to wear over other layers, but may not be the best fit by itself for some people.
As most reviews state, this shirt is super soft and super comfy. However, the sizing is completely off, and that is the reason that I only rated it at 3 stars. I am 5'11", 170, athletic, and the medium was huge. I have never worn anything other than a medium from Patagonia and was disappointed with the funny fit of the pima cotton shirt. ...

Very large shirt
I have several of these shirts from the past few years but this year the shirt is huge! I could fit 2 of myself in this shirt. I am 6'2 190 lbs so about an average weight/height guy and the large engulfed me. The medium was too short. I don't know why the shirt has to be so big. Most of the people who buy Patagonia are relatively fit. We ... Read Moredon't need this much fabric. Please Patagonia, go back to the old fit, please...
