ELT Alexa Show Blouse
Very nice blouse for the price. Fits me well - I did order a size up as suggested.

Decent show shirt, make sure to size up!
The quality of this shirt is ok--it does look nice and crisp when you have it on, but the material is not the most high quality that you could find. It feels a little stiff when you put is on. This is a nice enough shirt for the price range, but I'll most likely use it as a spare - I liked getting a button up short sleeved show shirt. If you are looking for a smoother material short sleeved show shirt, this is not the shirt for you. Definitely make sure to follow the directions and size up though!

Runs Really Small
These shirts run very very small I ordered a size larger than I wear in most show shirts and it was more of a child's sized shirt not an adult. The material is also very coarse and cheap. I am returning this for sure.

Tight & Short, but ...
The cotton is very thin. The fit very tight across the chest, but ok in the shoulders and plenty roomy in the neck. The shirt is also too short to stay tucked in. I'm 5'6" and an average size (m) in everything. I would normally order a size 36, but the size 38 that I ordered this shirt in is still a bit tight, and would need a 40 to be able to wear this year round and have room for shrinkage. However, it is that super light--no bulk, beautiful-looking shirt to wear under a vest/coat.

Runs very small!
I ordered this shirt in my usual size and according to the sizing chart but I was very disappointed when I got it and tried it on. I couldn't even button it shut it was so tight, and it was also very short, there's no way I would ever be able to tuck it in. The quality was good but I'm not sure how much longer the next size up would be so I didn't bother getting it. I'd suggest ordering at least 1 if not 2 sizes up from what you normally wear.
Sizing issues aside I will say that I loved the collar and the fact that you don't need a separate ratcatcher collar, it's built in for you.

Very Short Shirt
When I received this shirt and tried it on, the tails only came to about two inches below my belly button. There are nearly no tails to speak of, and unless you are wearing high-waisted breeches, it will never stay tucked in. Otherwise, it was made of a nice fabric and the sleeves and collar were nicely starched with pearl buttons. The fact that I couldn't tuck it in had me returning this shirt the next day.
