Patagonia Men's Long-Sleeved Vjosa River Pima Cotton Shirt

True To Size
April 30, 2021

Great fit, very comfortable.

A solid casual work shirt that could easily double as sun shirt on the river.

April 15, 2021

Perfect casual work shirt

I have three of these shirts that are in my casual work rotation. Super soft and the fit is great! Slim enough but not overly so. Im 6 and 190 so not a bean poke but this shirt fits me much better than a regular button down shirt from other brands. Plus buying this supports more sustainable manufacturing practices!

Very soft and comfortable

My favorite shirt for dressing up at family events or for the weekend. Fits great and very comfortable.

April 3, 2021

Nice shirt, runs small

Great shirt all around, but runs a little small. I'm 5'9" 160 and a medium just sorta barely works

Thank you for the feedback on the fit and we are sorry to hear it's running too small. Please feel free to set up a free [exchange]( online if you'd like to swap that out.

Great shirt

The shirt is super soft amd comfortable. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a casual button up. The one complaint I have is if you lift weights and have any size the upper arm is a little snug. I wish it was just a bit bigger

March 24, 2021

Perfect feel, fit, and style

Fabric is luxuriously soft, fit is spot on for a slightly trimmed fit, with long enough sleeves and torso for a taller guy (not too long tough!). Can dress this up easily for work, or dress it casual for a beach day.

Really comfortable

It is a fantastic shirts that is extremely comfortable and soft. I am 5 10 and 160 pounds and it fits great. The only thing that I would have changed is that there are no buttons on the forearm so it makes it feel a little weird. Overall it is a very good product though.

Very soft fabric. Runs a bit small

The slim size definitely fits the definition. If you're between sizes you should probably size up. Other than that, this shirt is super comfortable and the cotton is very soft.

Very small

I wear a medium with Tommy Bahama and read that the fit with your brand is about the was closer to an xsmall Tommy Bahama shirt

One of Patagonias best

As an offfice worker in New York City, it is important to me to have cloths that look good and fit well while being true to who I am as an outdoor enthusiast and environmentalist. This shirt shows how Patagonia has evolved their clothing lines to be fitted and presentable while not loosing their soul. The fabric is beautifully soft. It fits well an...

Little tight in the sleeves

Good shirt. Solid build. Little tight in the sleeves, but I wear my sleeves rolled all the time, so not a big deal.

February 25, 2021

Love it! Bought 2 more!

Great slim fitting shirt. Wife loved it - bought this one on sale - like it so much bought 2 more NOT on sale. Only 1 issue - I wish Patagonia would stop using cheap labels! The poly thread and labels scratch my neck. I have to cut them off!

February 11, 2021

Great soft fabric - runs a bit small

These shirts are great quality and the cotton is super soft. Be aware these are slim fit so they run a bit smaller than you might expect, but are very comfortable!

February 11, 2021

Good shirt

This is a good shirt for casual work. It is super soft and not too wrinkly out of the drier and if cleaned in cold water it does not shrink. My only small complaint is that there is a fairly large Patagonia tag on the size of the shirt which is weird for a dress button up.

Its nice quality, but it is not a slim fit tailored shirt. It fits like any other regular/standard fit large.

Almost perfect (but not quite)

I'm 6'5", 225 lb, 46in chest , 34in waist, arms are 17.5in circ by 37in length. I have a muscular swimmers body. I wear these untucked with "tactical" khakis for work and under a Better Sweater vest for these 40 degree mornings on the Central Coast. The fit is great in the shoulders, chest and arms- snug and comfortable. B... Read Moreut there is too much width in the torso- it might even flair out a little- and maybe an inch too long. It's passable for now, and I won't be returning, but I may consider having them altered. The pattern should really be more tapered through the torso to be accurately called slim fit. The pima cotton is wonderfully soft and durable feeling, it wrinkles easily but in a natural looking kind of way. There's some give to the fabric but it doesn't stretch out of shape. It regulates temperature really, really well- the antithesis of other oxfords I've worn. Overall I'm very pleased but had to withhold a star because they just fall short of what they could be.

My favorite shirt

This is the only patagonia shirt I have found that is not over sized on me. I love it. Bought 4 more.

January 31, 2021

Runs small

Beautiful shirt, well constructed with a comfortable fabric. Unfortunately the fit is too tight across the chest and torso. Had to return.

January 25, 2021

Excellent fit...

Excellent got and quality as usual.

Super comfortable

Super soft. Perfect all around shirt. I am 5'5" athletic build and the xs fit great. I would not say it was a slim fit though.

Amazing Quality, but weird fit

I wanted to love this shirt so badly. I bought it in a large. The quality is incredible and the softest cotton Ive ever felt. However, the fit is very weird. I initially bought a large, and noticed that while the arms and shoulders area is slim fit the rest of the shirt is relaxed fit. The stomach area is extremely unbecoming and very loose. It mak...

Im giving 3/5 stars because the quality still quality was amazing and like usual Patagonia has the best customer service. Exchanging and then returning was very easy.

December 17, 2020

Soft and comfortable

Ordered a medium and had to return it, to tight in the shoulders and chest. Exchanged it for a large. Fits great in the body but the sleeves are a little long. Overall the shirt is very comfortable.

November 1, 2020

Comfy and high quality

This shirt is comfortable, high quality, and nice looking. Just what I hoped for.

Nice office work shirt

I wear this shirt primarily to work and like it a lot. It does seem to run a bit large for a "slim fit" shirt.

October 30, 2020

Perfect Fit

I usually have a hard time with Patagonia button downs. Mediums are usually too small and larges are usually way too big. This shirt fits me perfect. So for a few years I've been buying every color they make. If the sizing works for you it's perfect. It's a nice fabric. I like that the pocket has a button, and the collars have button...

Good quality, fits well (not too slim). Im 510, 148lbs, and small fits me well. I have three of these shirts on a tight rotation for my work week.

Fresh and Fast

Looks great. The cotton is soft after multiple washing and dryer cycles. Construction is superior and more durable than other casual shirts I wear to the office for my engineering work. Fits true to other Patagonia pieces. Recommended

Comfortable and nice looking shirt

This is just a really solid slim fit shirt.

Why is a large so big....

Ok so Im not a 36waste anymore... I have a 41.5 chest and 34 waste. Large size is good in the shoulder but is really big from there down. This is not what I was expecting for a slim fitting garment. Usually a medium is tight in the shoulders and the sleeves are a little short... however the fabric is nice and soft.

We are sorry to hear that this is fitting a little large and we appreciate the detailed feedback on your measurements, etc. If you decide you'd like to [send]( this back to us, please feel free to do so and you're welcome to try the medium.

Great look

The shirt fits fantastic and I love the broke in look after a few washes.

You wont wanna take this off

Super comfortable and fits perfectly. Wish I had bought more in other colors

Possibly the most versatile product I've bought of theirs

Not sure I have a better product from this company. I wear this shirt for a week straight, quick wash, week straight again.

Nice Slim Fitting Shirt BUT...

This is a nice shirt but I feel like it replaced some previous styles of shirts that were really great shirts, such as the long sleeve Bluffside shirt. Also, all long sleeve shirts that Patagonia offers now are flannel or technical fabric, it was really nice to have chambray and other smooth cotton options. I am actually finding it really difficult... Read More to find this style of shirt from other companies that lives up to Patagonia quality.

Nice Shirt

Like this shirt a lot. Light weight and warm. Fabric looks a little like linen. Only complaint is the sleeve width as I like to roll the sleeves up and the shirt’s sleeves have a narrow width.

Soft and supple, but Patagonia continues to struggle making anything resembling a modern, upscale tailoring and fit.

I love the material, color and sustainability of this shirt, but in the past five or six years I have basically stopped buying anything from Patagonia due to the outdated, baggy fit. This shirt is another example of how Patagonia struggles. My standard dress shirts have a 16 inch collar. This Patagonia shirt however has an enormous neck hole - I’m... Read More guessing around 18.5 inches but maybe larger. I think I could probably gain 50 pounds and the collar would still fit me. But nobody with an 18.5” neck would ever fit into this shirt so why cut the neck hole so big? It’s sloppy tailoring plain and simple and it’s shocking Patagonia is so bad here when it’s competitors are obsessed with these details. It’s the lack of details that ruin a shirt like this. Patagonia knows how to make technically sophisticated gear, but the fit / style / tailoring / color ways etc just don’t cut it anymore. I work in downtown Manhattan and dress smart casual for work. Patagonia used to be a popular go to. But today it’s hard to pair this kind of shirt with other upscale casual wear when the fit is so sloppy. I really wish Patagonia would start making modern-cut clothes that look sophisticated and stylish because I love the brand and it’s mission.

November 26, 2019

Doesn’t fit

I’m bummed it doesn’t fit even though a different medium shirt ordered at the same time fits perfect. I won’t buy from the website again. I don’t like having to pay shipping after spending that kind of money on a garnet.

Hi Michael! We're sorry to hear this item did not fit the same as the other shirt you purchased. Please note, we offer three different fits in our line: Slim, Regular, and Relaxed.

I thought the shirts would be like the short sleeve work I bought from you guys but the fabric was all different and fuzzy. The design wasn't sharp at all.

Go-To Casual Shirt

The causal shirt that I now grab the most from the closet. Very comfortable fabric, great for dressing up but also equally great for everyday use. I tried the navy first and ended up ordering the heather gray later as well. Well made and fits great. Can’t say enough about this shirt. I’m 5ft 7in, 165lbs and the medium fits perfectly.

I own three of these shirts, and may buy more. The fit is slim, but not tight. The only issue I have with the shirt is the cuffs are a little tight. It can make rolling up your sleeves tough.

Awkward fit

This shirt is proportionally too tight in the arms and far too loose and wide in the gut and waist area. It also lacks buttons on the forearm/cuff area which makes the sleeve fit odd as well.

I have bought Patagonia clothing for about 40 years. One of the many things I have loved about Patagonia clothes is that they always fit. I have always been a reliable size large in shirts.

Perfect Everday Shirt

great summer shirt for when you need to look nice but don't want to die of heat stroke, the fabric has a great feel to it, super soft.

Sweater sleeves are too much long

Bought two sweaters and returned due to the sleeves are too long, the sweaters fit the body perfectly but the sleeves are two inch longer to my arms, so really appreciated if Patagonia can provide more choices for our small and short.

Pilling, ugh

I was looking forward to this shirt. The fabric was soft, the fit perfect. I washed the shirt one time in my gentle, Swedish washing machine and let it air dry before the first wear. But already the fabric was pilling and I had to return the shirt. I’m not happy about the waste. It seems the fabric was untested.

Great work and travel shirt

The material feels amazing and overall I like the cut of the shirt.

Cut too tight in the shoulders

The material is nice and soft, but the shirt is way too tight in the shoulders, to the extent that it's so uncomfortable I decided to return it.

Size and Shrinkage

I purchased two colors of this shirt. When they arrived one was 3/4" shorter in the sleeve. That one was returned/replaced and it was acceptable....until I washed it in cold water. Then it shrank by at least 1/2 inch. Never wore the other shirt, but now sending both back for a refund.

This thing is sweet, like a Good T in a button down. Little more polished look then other Patagonia shirts.
