Solid Cotton Henley
I do not recommend this top. It runs very small!
I ordered this top in a medium which is the same size I always order from Appleseed's. Normally I am very satisfied with Appleseed's products. This cotton Henley was ridiculously small. It was 2 1/2" shorter than other cotton tops I have ordered from Appleseed's. It was narrow across the bust. I actually suspect that this top was mis-labeled. This top is on the way back to Appleseed's!

not as pictured
The Ivory color is dingy and the fabric is poor quality. The picture in the catalog shows the top couple of buttons unbuttoned which is how I wanted to wear it. The collar flops down if it isn't buttoned. I had bought two and had already worn one so I couldn't return it, but I did return the other one.

Great for traveling.
Bought this for travel which I do quite often and I love it. Fabric is very soft, therefore comfortable. I might like a little more heft to the fabric, but then it may lose its softness and may be more difficult to get under a sweater which I often need when going from warm to cold weather. Collar is great to fend off the drafts that are sometimes in planes and airports. I have washed it and found no shrinkage as some others mentioned. Used cold water and hung to dry.

Looks and Feels Great
I love the color, the fit and the style of this shirt and will probably get the same thing in other colors.

Nice fall top
It's a comfortable casual top for fall. Not a lot to write home about.

Comfortable but stylish
This is my new favorite top with slacks and jeans.

Love the style of this top
I HAVE 3 OF THESE. THE BLACK CHERRY, SAFFRON AND DARK PLUM HEATHER ONES. I LOVE ALL THE COLORS AND THE STYLE OF IT. YOU CAN WEAR IT LIKE A MOCK TURTLENECK ALL BUTTONED UP OR OPEN THE FIRST 2 OR 3 BUTTONS AND LAY THE SIDES BACK DOWN, SO IT IS MORE OPEN. THE ONLY REASON I GAVE IT 4 STARS INSTEAD OF 5 IS THAT YOU HAVE TO BE SO VERY CAREFUL WHEN LAUNDERING IT OR IT WILL SHRINK UP! 100% COTTON AND NOT A PRE-SHRUNK COTTON. I HAVE LEARNED TO WASH IN COLD WATER AND TO ONLY PUT IN A MEDIUM HEATED DRYER FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. AND I TIME IT. TAKE IT OUT AND HANG IT UP OVERNIGHT. I USE A WRINKLE RELEASER SPRAY ON IT AFTER I HANG IT UP, SO BY MORNING IT'S DRY AND NO WRINKLES. ALSO WHEN WET, AFTER HANGING IT UP, I TAKE ONE OF THE OTHER TOPS LIKE IT AND HANG IT IN BACK OF THE ONE I JUST WASHED AND IF THE SLEEVES HAVE SHRUNK, I PULL DOWN AND STRETCH THE WET SLEEVES TO WHAT THE OTHER ONE MEASURES....ALSO THE SAME WITH THE LENGTH OF THIS TOP. THEN IT TURNS OUT PERFECT EVERY TIME. BUT IF YOU WASH IT AND THROW IT IN THE DRYER TILL IT IS DRY....YOU HAVE SHRUNK THE SIZE UP ALMOST 2 SIZES SMALLER. SO BE VERY CAREFUL. AND IF YOU BUY IT A SIZE OR TWO LARGER AND WASH IT, IT MAY JUST FIT PERFECTLY AFTER THE FIRST WASHING, BUT WASH IT AGAIN AND IT WILL SHRINK UP AGAIN AND THIS TIME BE TOO SMALL. IT SHRINKS EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU WASH IT. I AM SO USED TO DOING THIS STRETCH ROUTINE BY NOW, IT JUST COMES AUTOMATICALLY AND SINCE I HAVE 3 OF THESE TOPS TO USE AS A MEASURE FOR THE ONE I'VE WASHED, IT WORKS OUT PERFECTLY.
Also on your review here that I filled out, it kept telling me that my "nickname" I entered has already been used. Of course it has... and used by ME!!!! Why do I have to come up with another nickname instead of using the one I've always used???
