This a nice item, really good quality as well - the printed image feels "thick" to touch, like it's not just a thin overlay - the image is made up of a series of medium sized dots, which will have the effect of reducing the amount of visible "cracking" which happens with shirt designs overtime - and being a vintage look, no matter how old the shirt gets, it'll still manage to look the same as the day you bought it - except for the black fading anyway, but that's a different story. The shirt material isn't smooth or silky, but it's not rough - quite thick as well, the shirt would function quick well in the winter as well as the summer. Definitely happy with this purchase, it feels comfortable to wear.
This is somewhat of a long shirt, it focuses on length rather than "space" when you increase the sizes, so be aware if you are quite robust and choose to buy say an XL, you'd probably be better with a XXL. If you like it baggy, anyway. My current natural size is XXL, and I bought XXXL and it fit perfectly, but sometimes feels a bit cramped around the shoulders.
Also incase the image doesn't make it clear, there is no blue on the Union Flag, it's not dark navy or anything - but it's also not one of those hideous pink and silver ones, so that's good.
If you're interested in a long, comfortable shirt with Great British motif, you can't go wrong with this.
Also, it turned up the next day at 7pm (UK based) so the delivery is fast, if a little late-day.
