Men's Checkered Poplin Shirt
Nice shirt for warm weather
LEC poplin is great for warmer temperatures. I wish that LEC offered shirts at XS. I have to get all their shirts tailored to look the way that I want them to. FYI, Bought a small, and it was roomy. I'm 5'8" with an average/slim build at ~144lbs.

Decent shirt, minor issues
For reference I'm 5'11, 180lbs athletic body type, and I ordered a size M in both the green and red versions of this shirt.
The shirt has a relatively slim cut compared to most modern boxy shirts, which is a good thing, but I found two minor issues that bug me a little bit every time I look in the mirror.
First, the sleeves are HUGE. They do taper down significantly towards the wrist, but up top near the shoulder they are massive, billowing parachutes of fabric.
Second, the collar feels very skimpy compared to a classic oxford button-down collar. I would prefer if the collars were longer so that they produced a nice "roll" when buttoned.
Other than that, they're nice shirts. I'm sure passersby don't really care about billowy sleeves or diminutive collars; these are more personal complaints. I would buy more of these shirts at the right price.

Comfortable, stylish and timeless!
Nice light cotton shirt. Fit is close but not too tight. Length is great for wearing untucked. The pattern is both classic and contemporary, if that makes any sense. Quality looks great so far. I'm looking forward to having this in my wardrobe for some time!
Sizing note: I'm 5'8", 200 pounds, muscular/athletic build, with a bit of a belly. Large fits perfectly.

Great fit and versatile
I'm 6'3" and 225# and the Large fits great for me. Goes well with Khakis or Jeans, I also recently wore it with a charcoal suit and black tie and received a lot of compliments.

I like it.
I'm 170, 5'10". Sizing, this shirt fits between an express fitted and modern fit shirt. There's a lot of room in the chest area (1 - 2 inches extra), and it tapers down to the core.
It's a good quality shirt, especially for the sale price I paid for it. LEC has a really good return policy, so I can always count on them if their products are not to my liking.

Great casual summer shirt
This is a fantastic shirt, and one of my favorites from LEC. The fit is very nice and true to the size charts, in line with the rest of LEC's poplins; it doesn't balloon like the oxfords and flannels do. The color on the red check pattern is wonderful, and perfectly complements a pair of jeans. My one complaint is that it's slightly too long; I'm of average height, and a size small drapes over my pockets and rear end a little more than I'd like. It's still a great shirt, especially at sale pricing.

Really nice shirt
Love the shirt, the material feels nice and looks really nice. Looks great with the sleeves rolled up for summer.
I'm about 190, 6' with a 34 waist and the large was a few inches too big. It looked ok, but it was loose. Normally if its a fitted/tailored fit shirt I get large because the mediums will be way too tight, but in this one a large was too big. Nonetheless, I re-ordered in the medium because I liked it so much, so that says something.

Fits more loosely than you'd expect
Fit is a bit loose based on the description which describes it has "more defined and inline..". I ordered a medium and I am 5'11" 185, not a waif. Sleeves are maybe a quarter inch long for me, but still a bit shorter than a J. Crew medium shirt. Fabric after washing is a bit stiff. It's lightweight, not as light as a J. Crew lightweight shirt, but lighter than almost any other shirt I have. Color is fairly bright. Recommending based on it being okay in every respect.
