Fit: Kind of strange, actually. There's potential in this cut, but it seems to be oversized at least one size. I'm not familiar with Cheap Monday's sizing, but (as much as I hate to admit this) I just don't quite fill out even the XS.

Material: Beat my expectations for the brand. The chambray is fairly thick and has a decent texture to it considering the price point. There's not a whole lot to write about here. Uh, it's a decent summer or transition shirt? Might even layer well for winter?

Construction: Not bad, the seams and buttons are all clean and sturdy...except for a problem button on the front, which is already unravelling. Maybe it was the last stitch and the seamster just phoned it in? What the fuck. Not a difficult fix, but a little disappointing.

Branding: Not obnoxious, but kind of conspicuous given that it's just a button up shirt. The little white tab you see on the pocket says "MONDAY"on the front and "CHEAP" on the back (I would have preferred it the other way around for the lulz) and the brand's skull logo is placed at the bottom of the buttons. I think I might end up ripping that one off.

That shirt needs the name "HANK" or "VINNIE" or "LOU" embroidered, in cursive, over the left breast with a nice Texaco patch above the right.

BTW, I really like the way you're streamlining your writing style, MJS. The fit/fabric/construction/branding is a nice breakdown.

The fit improved significantly with a wash, all 3% of shrinkage made all the difference. It's a hair bigger than I'd normally get but it has the feel of more of a classic fit that way.

Did you get "Jimmie" embroidered over the pocket?
