A Canadian ClassicI've come to know what to expect of sizing with Roots tops and what “relaxed” means. Normally I'm a small in tees but in these relaxed tops if I don't size down, I'm swimming in it, it's so big - even though I'm 5'5” and 125lbs. The navy plaid suddenly went out of stock online so I called my local store and asked for an XS to be put aside. I got down there and sure enough it fit. Sold!
Nice navy blue and royal blue plaid with white, and a bit of gold and maroon - it's not bold like some of the other plaids but won't go out of style either. It'll pair with just about anything. It's 100% cotton. I see no issues with the stitching on mine, other than the sides not matching up on the pattern - but honestly most brands don't do this anymore. My only other pet peeve is the amount of loose threads I had to pull or cut off. Please do this! It has one shirt patch pocket - some retailers have done away with flannel shirt pockets for women this fall and I've walked away. Ick. My plaids MUST have a pocket. I like the “locker loops” on these Roots shirts too.
The shirt was somewhat on sale but I know it'll last me years, so I'm getting good value. I'd rather buy one good top a year and I'm happy with this choice. I'm ALMOST looking forward to fall so I can wear it,
