Ws Farriers Shirt

Kinda Large
April 16, 2023

Smart Looking

Loose fitting and wear over tops. Can remove when get too warm from working. Looks great with jeans.

March 6, 2023

Super comfy and looks nice!

This is my favorite work shirt. I teach, amd I'm moving around a lot in the classroom, bending over to help students, reaching for stuff, etc. This fabric has a nice softness and bit of stretch. After several washes, it's still looking very nice! The dark blue fabric hangs well and hides any dirt or smudges from classroom markers, dog&#x2... Read More7;s muddy paws, etc. I'm 5'10, lean with a small chest and I'm fit but not super buff. The small is comfy but I would order another one a size up as it's a little tight around my upper back when I put my arms forward. I love this shirt!

February 21, 2023

Great Button Down

Again the shirt was a gift. Patagonia wear is always a huge hit. The shirt looks great on my lovely wife and the style is super hip.

February 19, 2023

Thick and Sturdy

I just wore this for this first time. Though the fabric is very thick, it isn't bulky. I wore it alone without it being over another shirt but it is perfect to wear over something more lightweight.

February 13, 2023

Really nice but weird sleeves!

I absolutely loved the color and feel of the fabric but the sleeves had weird seams and restricted movement so sadly had to return.

Wonderful shirt !

I have had my eye on this product for some time and finally pulled the trigger and it did not disappoint ! The other reviews were a great help with deciding on size & Patagonia's brand and quality stayed true to the other products I have. I love this shirt and it's versatility. Great fit and design--want it in more colors!

February 9, 2023

Great if you have narrow shoulders

Not a lot of extra space in the shoulders, but if you have pretty narrow shoulders - it'll be a good fit. No stretch in the material, but really high quality.

February 6, 2023

Beautiful shirt

This is just a good-looking shirt. Material is super soft and durable. The sizing is pretty spot-on except for being a little tight in the upper arms/shoulder area.

December 29, 2022

for small shoulders and arms

I bought this first in a medium, and the fit was awesome - except that I have muscles on my shoulders and muscles AND pudge (I'm 50) on my arms. This was not a shirt for swinging a hammer or a kid for that matter, no shoulder/arm room. Had 2 friends of less active lives try it and they also felt it was too tight in the shoulders.

OK if you don't have muscles in your arms

I wanted to love this, but as an actual blacksmith with biceps, I found that the "fitted" arms were to restrictive. I'm not a little thing in the middle either, have plenty of middle age spread, but the torso fit really well. So to get arm swing room I would need a large - but that would be all baggy and saggy in the middle, which is... Read More dangerous with grinders and belted tools. It's a gorgeous shirt and I wanted to have it and I would still recommend it to my less burly friends, but ONCE AGAIN it seems like the female-bodied versions of things are less focused on function and more focused on looks.

Great fit

Fits great for me. Nice heavy weight. But the logo is a bit too prominent for me to get away with wearing it when I wanted to. Not big on logos showing too much. Too bad!

Love this shirt!!

I absolutely LOVE this shirt. It is extremely comfortable and goes with just about anything. I am 5'7", 142 lbs, have pretty broad shoulders and a medium fits great. It's a perfect light layer for fall.

Stylish and comfortable

Its a great shirt with good texture and very comfortable. It fits great in chest and shoulder but not in length. Still love the shirt although it is too long for me.

Last time I ordered a M and it's great for layering a bit more underneath in the cold of winter. This time I ordered a S and it fits perfect! I have long arms and it's a perfect fit at the wrist.

Great fabric, weird fit, regret purchase.

The fabric is lovely. But it doesn't fit me. I studied the reviews and read about people with broad shoulders finding it a tight fit in that department. I'm a small with broad shoulders and often have to get an M because of them, so I went that way. Shoulders are okay, but rest is HUGE! Arms are too long; it'll be flapping everywhere... Read More.

Great quality and versatile top layer

I bought this for outdoor travel, hiking, and casual wear. The material is thick but soft and feels like it will last a long time. It is a great top layer that is versatile from the trail to lodge.

Strong and comfortable, not warm

This shirt is great, but I'll mention two things. The shirt (for me) is true to size, so if you want your regular fit, go with your regular size. I went with a S instead of an XS on the basis of other reviews, so it's more of a comfort overshirt than a standard fit. Also, the shirt is soft and cozy, but doesn't add a lot of warmth wh...

Material wonderfully soft but too heavy

I returned this shirt. I was looking for a tough long sleeved summer work shirt that I can use when running a string trimmer or doing other work like tackling blackberry vines. This shirt is more of a jacket. The material is great, just too heavy, for summer/spring wear. Also for a work shirt, the fit seems too tailored.

April 27, 2022

Great Layer to Throw On

Pretty tough and rigid shirt w no stretch. Starting to soften as I wear it. Durable and thick to use for rugged tasks. Generally just use it as a light layer to throw on.

Loving it

I was pleasantly surprised how warm this is. It is very well made and I am sure it will last a long, long time. I have it in black and red plaid and it works great as a light jacket.

March 27, 2022

Odd fit

I'm tall, with a small torso and long arms. The shirt fits exactly like the fjord flannel but the sleeves are even shorter than the ones on the fjord. Material gets softer with washing, did not shrink much. If I was any more muscular in the arms and shoulders this shirt would have been actually unwearable, the arm holes are right in the armp... Read Moreit and are very narrow. Solidly constructed, I expect to get a lot of use out of it. I bought the grey, and it's a comfy, very well made, heavyweight fabric. I love and use the pen holder pocket detail. I'll probably have to cut the sleeves off and make it a shop vest. Wouldn't buy it again unless I bought six of them, five to wear and one for a tailor to use for fabric to give the first five functional sleeves

Best utility shirt!

Initially I bought this shirt because I dig stripes, and this was giving me retro Oshkosh feels. However, this has become my go to work shirt now for working on the farm and garden.

Super comfy and a great way to add layers

Weather is finicky! This is a perfect second layer when it's chilly, but not cold enough for a jacket.

March 22, 2022

Lightly fitted, comfortable shirt. Great fabric.

I really like this shirt a lot. I hope they come up with some more colors. Its a little bit fitted, so good for work with a little dressing up. And great for being out and about. Super soft. Feels great.

Staple fav in my wardrobe!

This is one of my go to favorite items to wear. Versatile, well made and tailored well. I'm 5'2" and 115-120 lbs.

Nice comfortable shirt that can also be used as a light jacket over a tee shirt. Sturdy material that looks like it will hold up well. Nicely sewn.

OK Shirt

Since this is marketed as a Farriers Shirt I was thrilled, since functional and well made womens work wear can be challenging to find.

Almost perfect. Only problem: too narrow/short across shoulder blades/upper back and the sleeves could be longer, too. The fit is fine for standing around.

Fantastic & Versatile Shirt

I first bought this shirt in size small in the dark orange and also the sage green color. Great colors. At 5'2 and about 120 lbs., the shirt definitely had a loose fit and was almost more like a light jacket on me than a shirt I'd wear alone. That's not a complaint though. It has actually been great in that way. Living in south Georg... Read Moreia, we have generally mild falls and winters, so I've already gotten a lot of use out of these simply by wearing them like a jacket. The shirts feel durable yet are quite comfortable, they are warm enough for my purposes, and they wash well. They are VERY well-crafted shirts, and I know I will enjoy wearing these for years to come. I did also purchase this same shirt (hickory stripe color) in an XS to see if I could achieve a more fitted look. Alas, it was not nearly as comfy as the small. The XS was too narrow for my broader-than-average shoulders, and overall I felt a bit stifled in my movements, so I ended up returning that one. At least now I know that the trick is to try a few different sizes to find the right one, and for me, it's a small for sure. Anyway, I loved the Farrier shirts so much that I bought my husband one as well, and he loves his too. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. 100% recommend.

November 20, 2021

Quality shirt

Love the looks and fit of this shirt. The material is very durable and it washes up nicely. I generally wear a small- medium and the medium fits perfectly (but the fabric isnt very forgiving) so, Make sure you pick the right size. Id say it runs just a tad small. Other than that I love it!

November 19, 2021

Looks good, durable and warm

I love this shirt, I was worried the cut was going to be boxy but it's not. I had purchased it to use for outside-type work however it looks good enough to wear as an everyday shirt.

Jacket-Shirt: great for Southern CA

Although the sleeves are long on me, I am short, I like to keep them long as I can cover my hands when biking. This is great for running around, yard work or going to the mountain and running around there. Great for layering.

I really want to love this shirt

I really want to love this shirt. The fabric feels soft on the skin, and I love it's thick sturdy fabric. The color (I got the hickory stripe) is nice and earthy, which I like. Based on a review from someone who is about my size (120 pounds and5'5), they recommended getting a size medium. I am a 33" bust, 25" waist, and 35&quo... Read Moret; (I think?) hip. I usually wear a size small for shirts, and size 2 pants. I went with the recommendation to get a size medium, and it is very relaxed fit. It is too loose around the waist area, but fits my arm length and shoulders beautifully. The way the fabric falls, it doesn't fit awfully and for a work shirt (I have a small homestead with sheep, chickens, horses) I really want a looser fit. And with how the shoulder fits, I wonder whether a smaller size would be too small. Overall, it's a really great shirt- I do love the color and the fabric feel. I loathe online shopping for this reason- you really can't tell how something will fit until you try it on!

September 14, 2021

Can't wait for the cold!

As much as I despise cool weather, I'm looking forward to it this year so I can wear this shirt all the time! I purchased the '70s orange color and it feels very retro. In a good way, of course! 4 instead of 5 stars because the fabric is very slightly itchy, but I suspect that may lessen after a some wears and washes.

Great shirt that will last!

I have a Fjord flannel that I love and wanted another long sleep button-up that I could layer.

super cute, very tight-size up

i rely on reviews a lot when buying clothes online, so heres my input to hopefully help the next person looking to buy! about me: 56 - 130# - athletic build 35-27-36, issues with pants sizing almost always, but shirts tend to sort out easier. i have other tops from Patagonia ranging from xs & s, most recently a medium in the insulated fjord f... Read Morelannel jacket because so many of yall really showed up in the reviews (thank you, i love it!!). I have pretty much my entire winter wardrobe from here, mostly smalls with a few xs depending on fit. For this shirt, I read every review, yes, all of them, and determined the majority vote was to order your usual size. So, I did. Style wise this shirt nails it. I love the fabric, the colours (striped sediment), and was so excited to potentially wear it with my double knee hemp pants and overalls. I ordered four items, three came straight away and the farrier shirt came separately today. I was so excited. I put it on immediately and *enter dramatic sound effect womp womp* it barely buttons over my chest. This 100% runs small imo. Unless I got a mismarked shirt and this is actually an xs, but even still I can think of four other xs shirts from Patagonia which are far from small/tight. So I am off to do a return, and for the first time in my life , find myself considering if I need a medium or large. really wild sizing imo. The fabric is thick, not stiff, but also not stretchy at all so if you plan to layer, like a looser/oversized fit, or plan move around at all (garden, camping, work in a science lab, change your tire) size up. For sure I will reiterate that this shirt is everything I hoped for style wise! The material is stellar, colour is so nice and neutral, but its cut tight. Thats all! If the exchange goes well and I get a size that works, Ill either update this review or post another to follow up! For further reference: I ordered the fjord flannel in a medium so I can layer and still have a roomy fit. I have the season hemp jacket in a small, regenerative sweatshirt in xs, the poly filled vest (cant recall name) in small, rashguard one piece long sleeve swim in small, etc.

Unexpected treat

I wasn't really looking for a shirt like this but saw it in a Patagonia store, tried it on, and loved it.

At 490 grams it is a bit heavier (compared to the Haywood Flannel at 244 grams which is more of a standard shirt weight). It is no... Read Moret made for tucking in. Love the metal buttons, quality construction. Holds its shape after washing. Bought both the green and the orange. Each with deep pigment saturation and a slight sheen almost linen quality. Don't let that scare you away. It isn't shiny but more polished or hand rubbed like a cherished wooden table that has held generations of family dinners. I will cherish this for years. Buy it, just buy it. I promise you won't regret it.

One of my favorite shirts

Very flattering fit! I wear it mostly as a light jacket over my t-shirt. The fabric is durable and thick but not rough on the skin. Very good quality shirt!

February 28, 2021

Perfect weight

I bought this for working in the yard but so far have used it for layering indoors during these chilly winter days. Sooo glad I got this.

February 25, 2021

Nice but small

I usually wear a M but I got a L. Still a little small. Wish I wouldve gotten a XL

We apologize for the troubles with fit on this shirt. Please feel free to [exchange]( this out for an XL if you'd like to give the size up a try. We appreciate you taking the time to give this feedback.

Perfect cut and toughness

Im a medium athletic build, 34DDD and no fat or extra fluff and this fit perfect. I wear a medium in most button ups and jackets. A small in athletic t-shirts. This shirt is perfect and has give in all the right places, like my shoulders and chest. Its long enough to tuck in and I absolutely love it.

February 11, 2021

Good though shirt. But....

Sizing is definitely off. On workwear line items it says that they run larger. Not true with this shirt. I am usually an XS in Patagonia, but got this shirt in S for a bit of an oversized fit, and I am oh so glad I did or it would not have fit. It is fitted, not roomy. Second issue is that this shirt does not have any spare buttons sewn on the insi... Read Morede (or wherever) that are a MUST on a work shirt (or any shirt for that matter). Cmon Patagonia, so much for your worn wear campaign if we won't even be able to replace a button ourselves.

Work Shirt

This is a sturdy, nice-looking work shirt. Its fitted with room for a capilene t-shirt underneath.

January 1, 2021

Cheery and Comfortable

Perfect for horse owners. This shirt breathes but is still warm and the brick color is great. A nice match with the hemp overalls.

January 1, 2021

New favorite!!

I purchased this shirt in my usual size, (XS) and the fit was spot on. The fabric is of very good quality, so it is durable and very comfortable. Proving to keep me super warm in the MN weather!

December 28, 2020

Great fit and style

I love this shirt. It fits perfectly and is the right blend of fashion and function.

December 16, 2020

Warm, stylish somewhat

A half jacket half shirt. Very warm worn over a sweater. I wanted it roomy so I ordered a large; but it fits nicely, doesn't look like an ill fitting men's large shirt. Patagonia quality, I can tell it will last a long time and look the same. Good for wearing hiking or in studio on cold day

December 13, 2020

Love it!

Im 59 and lean so the medium was a bit large/roomy, but I love it. I wasnt looking for a fitted piece. Ive worn it hiking in the snow, and on cold days with kids. Its perfect thick for cold/working days!

November 30, 2020

Sturdy and warm.

This shirt is sturdy and warm. It feels like wearing a light jacket, but you aren't hot when indoors and it's comfortable. I walk to work and it's cold. This shirt is perfect to stay warm and with a cute necklace, looks perfect for the office. My only complaint is that it flairs out a bit more than I would like at the bottom. I prefe...

Quality shirt

This shirt is amazing, thick cotton, relaxed fit, quality! I bought two and they should last a very long time. Ill wear them for work or play and everyday.

November 17, 2020

A Real Shirt

A true everyday shirt - it's very well-made and the fabric has heft, durable yet soft. Easy to roll up the sleeves for working outside, hiking etc. but give it a press and it's polished enough for desk time too. Women's shirts are often flimsy compared to those for men. Thank you Patagonia for making a simple, beautifully crafted shi... Read Morert for women.

Excellent field shirt for work

As an environmental scientist, I needed something I can get dirty and will protect my arms. This shirt is the perfect addition to my work wear. Flattering, nice color, protects me from the scraps and mud.

September 24, 2020

Great shirt for work or play

I have this shirt in three colours - grey, blue, and the red plaid. I got the grey and blue shirts a couple of years ago and they have worn great. Still look brand new! They also NEVER wrinkle. I take them out of the wash and hang them to dry and they look ready to wear even to the office. Really nice, heavy duty (fair trade) stitching. Thick mater... Read Moreial. Good for dog walks, camping, hiking, and even to wear to a (casual) workplace. The red plaid fabric is slightly different, still thick but more like a wool flannel even though the tag still says hemp and recycled polyester. The fit is roughly the same though. I usually wear medium but in these shirts I am a small.

September 22, 2020

Love it - will buy another!

This is a great short. Heavy, soft, well made. I know it will last a long time.

September 18, 2020

attractive style

this looks so good it's not just for beating around the house, or hiking. It's got style.

September 18, 2020

Perfect for fall/winter

Because I live in Tucson, AZ, this is a perfect winter jacket for me. Well made and a great shade of blue

September 17, 2020

Great look

I love this shirt but wish it was a little less stiff.

September 16, 2020

Well made

I was impressed with the overall quality, it really is well made. The material is denser than expected, its soft but still has that Im gonna be with you forever kind of feel. Its made to last. 4 stars is a high rating in my book, 5 it would have to give me a shoulder rub lol.

Classic,old school patagonia

I love this shirt. It is functional, tough, comfortable. It is what Patagonia made in the 80s..just great clothes that did their job , and lasted for years. Love this shirt.

September 9, 2020

Great Classic

This shirt is a great classic that will probably last a lifetime. The fabric is incredibly thick and capable of taking a beating and withstanding the elements, yet the shirt looks polished enough to wear to work or out around town.

I've already ordered a second and I'll probably do so again, especially when they're on sale.

Sturdy Button-up

Heavy duty button up will be perfect for the Construction Site and Casual wear. Very sturdy fabric, slightly stiff, but a very good addition to my wardrobe. Medium size gives me plenty of room to layer when the weather turns cooler. 5'8" / 130lbs / Medium

Strong, yet relatively soft and very comfortable work attire!

This shirt fits well and is comfortable to wear. The cut allows for excellent mobility in the arms. I haven't used it for work yet, but have put it on to play badminton in our backyard b/c I wanted to test out the shirt- mobility was great! Will use it for work starting this weekend, building a paver patio and hauling rock, etc... for substrat... Read Moree. We're also having to take out a mature tree (sadly, due to the runners- which will ruin the new patio) and I will be chopping wood for our outdoor fire pit! This shirt will absolutely fit the bill for these jobs and hopefully last many years. These things said, I'm an Active Girly Girl- and I wish the logo on the female version was the beautiful normal Patagonia logo. The Workwear logo isn't as visually appealing, but that's just my opinion. I won't be looking at it while I work, so it's not a big deal. I purchased the black/dark grey color and really like it.

September 2, 2020

High quality

Great shirt. XS was a better fit for shoulders, bust, waist, and length, but too tight in the arms. Went with S so could work and move arms more comfortably. If had added stretch would have gone with XS for slimmer fit.

August 15, 2020

Soft, thick and seemingly strong fabric!

The Farrier shirt is a "Regular Fit" item, so I purchased my regular size in this fit (XS, I'm 5'4.5" and 125#, 32 B)- it was smaller than expected, but still fits well. The item is made out of amazingly soft fabric! After reading rave reviews about the quality of Patagonia Workwear on horse websites, I purchased this for w... Read Moreorking outside. Whether cutting back blackberry vines, gardening, weeding, chopping fire wood for outdoor cooking or helping build a paver patio- this will hopefully be my 'go-to' shirt for any type of manual labor outside.

Workday and Weekends

This is my favorite shirt. Fits perfectly. Looks sharp enough to wear to my casual workplace and durable enough to work around the yard on the weekend. I told my partner to expect to see me in this shirt for many years to come.

November 24, 2019

Great work shirt, fit is a little awkward

I love this shirt. It has a great feel to it and is perfect for field work. The only is issue is the fit in the sleeves. They are rather over long, but also narrow. Extra material bunches near my wrists, but they’re right near my shoulders. It’s not a deal breaker, but it could definitively use a tweak.

September 25, 2019

Love but could use some tweaks

I bought this in a size small (I am 5'10 and 135) I usually wear a small in everything Patagonia except for the Fjord flannel- I wear a medium in that. This shirt is so thick and soft, I never want to take it off! However, it is much too small in the shoulders to be a real "small" and the sleeves are wayyy too short. Little disappoin... Read Moreted that the sizing is so off compared to other Patagonia items, but I still love it and will buy it in other colors!

September 22, 2019

5 star quality

Great fit and top notch craftsmanship!

September 12, 2019


I work and play outside. I love the thickness and quality of this shirt. I am 5'11" and 145#. I got a large so I can wear shirts underneath. There is still room. I would say if there was a size between medium and large it would be perfect! For tall ladies with a long wingspan this shirt wont disappoint.

September 8, 2019

Comfy & warm

Great shirt for working in the garden or going out, super warm.

August 26, 2019

One shirt to rule them all

If I'm leaving the house, the Farrier is coming with me. It's thick enough to hold up in a light rain, or be thrown on over a swimsuit and not make me instantly cold. It's a must for around the campfire, minimizing mosquito bites and easily wrapped into a pillow at the end of the night. I get compliments on this every time I wear it.... Read More I'm 5'7" and typically a Med top, but I went for the small. Sleeves are perfect, it's a little tight across the shoulders, so if I were working in this daily I'd opt for a Med.

August 20, 2019

Great feels!

This shirt is pretty great. It’s all it is described to be - a soft, but tough layer. I wish it were just a little fuller cut, but wearing it anyway since I plan to wear open over a T-shirt.

August 10, 2019

Great Materials, good fit

Great materials, feels like a shirt that will be wearable for years and keep getting better with time. My only qualm is about the fit. Generally, the shirt fit's well. However, I'm 5'11" with a fairly athletic build and the shoulders are a bit snug.

August 5, 2019

Tough and Cute

I originally go this shirt to cut wood. But now that I have it, it's too cute to use for working ;). I have used it the past 7 months though, and is still cute, and looks just as good as day 1.

April 18, 2019

Fabric is great, sizing a little strange

I bought this shirt on sale because I love the Western Snap shirt and thought I would try this one. Gambled and went with the S (since that's what was left on sale), since the S fit well in the Western Snap. The fabric and drape of the shirt are amazing, but I found that the Small was very restrictive through the shoulders for me. Could be I j... Read Moreust needed a size bigger, but I thought it was odd that the fit was so different from the Western Snap, especially on a "work shirt" that should leave ample room through the shoulders for active things. The fit everywhere else was roomy.

February 24, 2019

sturdy shirts, fits great

This shirt is practical and stylish. I like its two pockets and cut longer so can be tucked in or out. I am 5'4" 110lb, got an XS. Great shirt!

March 11, 2018

The perfect shirt

Patagonia please make this in more colors! I have several of the women's fjord flannels and this fits and looks even better than the fjord. It feels incredibly sturdy and fits perfect. The sleeve are a tad short but I always roll my sleeves up so that doesn't really bother me. If only there were more colors like the men's!

October 5, 2017

Really nice

This is a nice,durable-seeming and really nice looking shirt. I saw it and instantly coveted and am glad I bought it. It is pretty roomy--I bought a small and was glad I did (I'm usually between a small and a medium in Patagonia tops). I also agree with the other reviews that said the sleeves are a bit short,but I would probably roll them up a...

Casual work shirt,doubles as a light jacket

Have had this for a couple of days,used it while renovating a room and carrying furniture pieces around,plus for general casual wear,cycling around etc. It feels a bit heavy,keeps the wind out pretty well,the pockets are large enough to fit stuff in,and the sleeves are long enough (I'm a bit of an ape,me). I've wondered if the sleeves are... Read More a bit to loose to my taste,but on the other hand they do give good mobility and I could assemble a couple of beds with ease,nothing constricted me in any way. The hanging loop is a nice addition. Doesn't look half bad as a jacket,either (I've the khaki version)! Sleeve tabs could be nice for hot weather use,as most lighter shirts (say,Sol Patrol) don't really hold up for much wear and tear. Won't find out before next summer,it might be the sleeves roll up and stay rolled up without any tabs at all.

September 28, 2017

Soft yet durable!

I bought this shirt because I do alot of woodworking and wanted a work shirt that would 1. fit a small woman 2. hold up to working conditions for years 3. be easy to move in,and 4. shed wood chips and shavings fairly well. I got to first test it out the other day while building trail for the Tahoe Rim Trail Association. It has great freedom of move... Read Morement (see video),and I never got too hot in it.

Seemingly durable,but the sleeves are too short

Nice,seemingly durable shirt. Heavy-weight,flannel-like material. I purchased this in both colors,the W's Forge Hemp pants in both colors,and the Tin Shed Jacket in the "Ink Black". After purchasing all of these items,I would only keep the Coriander Brown Forge Hemp pants because everything else looked drab,or they just did not have ... Read Morean "awesome" factor about them. The "Ink Black" Iron Forge Hemp pants look like a pair of urban denim pants. They were a huge disappointment,and not as awesome as the Coriander Brown color. Even though the Farrier's Shirt look as though it was made with a good quality material,Patagonia did not get the length of the sleeves right,but the body of the shirt had a good length and width. I also find that I have the same sleeve issues with Patagonia's women's "updated" or more recent hoodies. When my arms are at my side,and I am stationary,the sleeves are seemingly a good length,but upon moving my arms,the sleeves ride up. I purchased an extra-small in both colors,and both Farrier's shirt have a sleeve length issue. Even though Patagonia has a good niche going for itself,it seems to not have many clothing that have an awesome factor,but instead,in my opinion clothing that are a disappointment.
