Slightly itchy on the neck
We're sorry to hear that this was a bit itchy for you, sometimes if you have an allergy to wool it will cause a reaction. If you're experiencing this, please feel free to make a return! We'd also recommend you check out our [Men's Recycled Cashmere Crewneck Sweater](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-recycled-cashmere-crewneck-sweater/50525.html?dwvar_50525_color=BEBR), it might feel a little softer to the touch.
Nice but a reminder Patagonia's Poor Sizing
I would rate this a 10/10 for quality workmanship, a 7/10 for materials (the wool is a little scratchy at first), and a 3/10 for fit. I'm 5'8" with a 38 chest and overall athletic build. The medium is too large and the small is too small. If your measurements are similar to mine, good luck finding Patagonia clothing that fits well. P... Read Moreatagonia's poor fit for someone of similar stature is pretty well documented on the internet. Otherwise, it's a really nice shirt.
Really nice, really itchy.
Shirt is beautiful and fits well, and seems to be well made. However, it is indeed very itchy, especially in the arms. I wont be able to wear this without a long sleeve layer underneath it, which significantly reduces its versatility IMO. They should line the sleeves or find a way to make it less itchy. I have plenty of wool garments that arent i... Read Moretchy at all, so I know it can be done.
Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry for the itchiness. Even though you are liking the look and fit of the shirt, if it is causing too much discomfort, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us.
How I made it a perfect match.
I'm very satisfied because of the performance of the fabric mix which is not easy to find. It contents recycled wool (not Merino wool), so people with sensitive skin (even lightly) may find it itchy unless wearing something else underneath. I bought this shirt as a mid layer to work outside in conditions below 20 degrees Celcius. I combine it ... Read Morewith a moisture wicking undershirt (no cotton) and a wind jacket and it works perfectly. I adjust the opening of the jacket and of this button shirt to regulate my body temperature and to keep me dry as much as possible. It is resistant so I expect to keep it for a long time. A must to stay warm and to fight moisture.
For people saying thats its itchy, your right. But thats quality wool. After wearing rag wool sweaters for years, your skin adapts. This is a shirt thatll wear like iron and be something that youll have for a long time. Thats why I began purchasing Patagonia. I bought this for casual wear along with work and maybe fishing. The fit is perfect. Id be... Read More labeled as skinny. Im 59 and a very lean 150 lbs. this shirt fits perfect in small. This is something Ill be wearing this on 30 degree mornings while splitting wood or something to wear on the commute to work. Its also stylish enough to wear out and not looking like Grizzly Adams.
Too scratchy to wear without base layer.
This product fits and looks great. However it is too scratchy to wear next to the skin. I've washed it once hoping for improvement but none had. Will likely return.
We're so sorry to hear this was too scratchy. All of our products are covered under our Ironclad Guarantee, so you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them at any time!
Itchty & Thin
they're itchy and the fabric is thin. i bought 2 of the organic flannel shirts a couple of years ago and since the pattern & price were the same i mistakenly assumed these (recycled flannel) were the same fabric - they're not. those shirts were amazing, these are at NOT the same product. if you didn't have the previous version ... Read Moremaybe these are OK but they are very itchy on bare skin, the fabric is thin and flat to the touch. i've been a patagonia customer for over 25 years and even have a few items which are that old. the quality used to be fantastic. unfortunately, over the past several years, more often than not, i've been disappointed with my purchases. true sustainability comes from producing products that last a lifetime not writing cute copy.
We are so sorry to hear about your disappointment and really appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts. Please note, if you're ever unsatisfied with something, or it wasn't what you had expected, you're more than welcome to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back.
An Heirloom Piece
I am a huge fan of this heritage-style shirt. For those who've said it's itchy, it's wool - what do you expect other than fantastic heat retention, durability, and all-day comfort? I fully expect to have this in my wardrobe for decades and hope to pass this down to other generations in my family.
Great looking shirt, but too itchy (sad face).
Love the fit, design and color - but unfortunately, after trying it on....inside of shirt is too itchy (sad face).
Hi Jeth! Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the M's Long-Sleeved Recycled Wool Shirt is too itchy. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase so please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your shirt to us.
Thanks, Patagonia, for throwing some love towards us slim dues. The shirt fits my 150 pound, 6 foot frame beautifully. That’s the small. The wall in polyester blend is a gem. It’s slightly itchy, but wall lovers should have no trouble with that. Can be used even as a technical shirt due to the fabric make up. Wonderful colors and designs, wonderful...

Like the shirt, quite itchy
The fabric is pretty ichy. Fit, style, and warmth is all really good but the handfeel kind of kills the shirt for me.
Sorry to hear that fabric isn't working for you, Sandy! We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) you [return](https://help.patagonia.com/s/topic/0TO1L0000002yyTWAQ/returns-exchanges) the shirt under our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://www.patagonia.com/ironclad-guarantee.html) for merchandise credit or a refund, so don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Love this thing. It's an excellent layering piece or great on its own on chilly but not cold/windy days. I layer a Capilene long sleeve tee underneath to avoid the itch and I'm comfortable all day. Haven't had to wash it after several wearings either since you need an undershirt. I like the easy access of the flap closure pockets. Bu... Read Morettons are easy to work and the cut is perfect.

Great mid layer
I have really enjoyed the benefits of wool, especially it’s ability not to smell after a long day of work or play. Even though I would technically call this a dress shirt 😂 since it’s a button down, I have been using it as a mid layer with one light layer underneath. It is itchy unlike the merino wool, but not a problem with a light layer undernea... Read Moreth. The only thing that would make this shirt even easier to own is for the washing instructions to be more clear or an explanation on the website would be nice for those who are a little nervous about owning wool garments.
Just what I wanted
This shirt has been great so far. The fit is a little longer and the shoulders fit perfectly. I like the simplicity with no placket stitching. The shirt is a nice weight and has been great on the fall days in The NW so far. Slightly scratchy but not uncomfortable by any means.
Durable mid-layer in the woods or out and about in-town
Tough and sturdy fabric. Can be itchy, but I was not planning on wearing it at skin level and it's on part with other past Patagonia wool shirts I have.

Nice shirt, a little scratchy..
I like the concept of the recycled wool, which earns this a higher rating.. I am a big fan of wool. I love my merino base layers, and have had all kinds of funky wool plaid shirts over the years. This shirt is very well made, and I love the slightly groovy colors. It is a little scratchier than I expected. But, it is wool.. A nit-picky thing is t... Read Morehe care labels.. There is no plain verbal version that says "Machine Wash Cold" or anything like that.. There are different 2 sets of those tiny confusing symbols. I have no idea what they mean, so I got out my magnifying glass and went to Google to figure out how to take care of this shirt.. Unfortunately, my friend did not do the research and washed and dried the shirt for me. It's a little snugger now. It is a great shirt and will last for years.
This is a sturdy shirt with some weight to it. I find that's it's a little warmer than similar Patagonia shirts in cotton. I've worn it with both a short- and long-sleeve undershirts and it both work find for me (not too itchy).

Excellent - As Always
Another top quality product from Patagonia. I have the Navy Blue plaid and it's excellent. I love the front pockets without the button, they're low profile but big enough to put a phone and other items inside. The material feels strong and relatively heavy and I'm sure will last many years of continual wear. It does itch a little but...

I bought this in a medium and it fits great. I gave it a wash and dry and it did shrink slightly - just enough to be a perfect fit. This shirt is warm, stylish, functional and recycled. Perfect. Looking forward to many years of use.
A new favorite.
I am SO impressed by this shirt. It is cut is a very stylish way, isn't very bulky, and incredibly warm. The recycled wool/poly/nylon blend provides excellent durability and allows the shirt to keep its shape. At first I found the shoulders a little snug, but that was because I was used to having to layer quite a bit under a similar style shir...

I find the Patagonia wool/poly base layer ( my favorite of all time) goes a long way under this shirt. The pockets are perfect! Two pockets is key! Why don’t all shirts have two pockets!? These pockets are just the right size for my glasses and iPhone . The flaps on the pockets are great! They offer security without fussing with buttons and they look good. My wife even gives this shirt the wear to dinner stamp of approval! I’d like another on in the butterscotch color. The nearly in nearly perfect is because I was hoping the shirt would have a smoother outer finish, so it would layer a little easier under my filson jacket and not snag on branches. The texture is the same as my wool shirts . Thanks for helping outfit me for this winter and being such an inspiring and high quality company! Joe
