OK, I confess: The addition of this linen big shirt to my closet makes an even dozen! I now have 12 J.Jill linen big shirts, and I love all of them. This latest, however, is by far the prettiest. I was afraid the hibiscus color might be too coral, but it isn't. It's a gorgeous shade of red, and looks spectacular with either black or white pants.
I highly recommend these shirts. I'm sure I'll be ordering more as new colors appear.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I recently ordered this corduroy shirt in both the dark green and the dark brown colors. I'm a big fan of both colors, and was looking forward to adding these to my fall/winter wardrobe. I was a bit disappointed when I saw how VERY DARK they both were. They are so dark that it's almost impossible to distinguish the green one from the brown one. They are still nice-looking shirts, and they fit well. A couple of years ago I bought some corduroy shirts from J.Jill, and I prefer the styling on the older shirts. They didn't have the gathered area in the back, but hung straight.
Note to J.Jill: Please bring back the plain, non-gathered cord shirts.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This cardigan is very nice, and I love the way it looks on the model. Sadly, while it was really flattering on the model, it made me look like Mr. Rogers. If you have the right look, I think it would be a good choice, but I had to return it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

odd fit for me

I liked the look of this tunic on the website, so I ordered a black one. It arrived today, and I'm disappointed. Although the size is just right, the style just doesn't work for me. The curved seam/pocket styling emphasizes my hips, making me appear broader than I am, even in black. Horrors! I'm actually fairly slim, so this is disconcerting. The real deal-breaker for me is the scoop neckline, which is cut much lower than it appears in the photo. I'm going to return this tunic, which makes me sad since I usually have good luck with JJill products.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I'm very pleased with this tunic. The red color is just right -- bright enough to feel cheery but not so bright as to look like a Santa suit. The fit is good, including sleeve length. This is a style that can be dressed up or down, and worn with jeans, or tights, or leggings, or wide-leg pants.
The only surprise I had was how very light-weight the tunic is. It's definitely more a spring time garment than a cold weather item, unless you wore something under it.
Cute top. Recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good grief, I need to join Linen Big Shirts Anonymous. I think this pink one is my ninth or tenth Big Shirt from J. Jill! Like all the others -- prints and solids alike -- this one is great. The color is lovely, and the fit is loose and roomy the way I like it in a big shirt. Do these shirts wrinkle? Of course they wrinkle, because they're linen. If it bothered me, I would iron them, but I think a bit of wrinkling is all part of the charm of linen.
I really like these shirts!
Yes, I recommend this product.

screaming red

I was so disappointed when I opened the package and pulled out this sweater. The picture on the website showed the red as a wonderful, deep, slightly purplish red. It looked very classy, and I was anxious to wear it with black pants.
Imagine my surprise when I realized the red is more the color of a fire engine. Or a ripe tomato. Or a tacky Christmas stocking. I mean, we are talkin' SCREAMING RED here. If I wore this sweater, I'd feel as though I should also be wearing a Santa hat. This item will definitely be going back to J.Jill.
No, I do not recommend this product.

OK, so I'm addicted. I now have about 8 of the linen big shirts, and I really like them. This latest one, with the blue paisley print, is one of my favorites. While I have several solid-color ones, I like the printed ones slightly more because they don't show their wrinkles quite as much.
J.Jill, if you keep offering printed big shirts I'll keep buying them!

I love J.Jill's linen big shirts! I have at least 5 of them, in both solids and prints. They're so wonderful over linen pants. This latest purchase -- the embroidered linen big shirt -- is the prettiest one yet! I feel guilty raving over this shirt since I bought it on sale and it may no longer be available for others to buy. If it is, I highly recommend it.
I can hardly wait for warm weather so I can wear it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ordered both the black and the cream version, and I like them both very much. The style and fit are very flattering and they are lightweight, so will be perfect this summer. I'll probably wear them over my J.Jill linen pants.

cotton pincord tunic

how much shorter is the petite in this shirt. I want another but it's only in petite, but it might be ok if it's only an inch or two shorter. thanks.
Topic:Size
I can't speak for the other sizes, but this shirt in a Petite Medium measures exactly 28 inches from the back neck to the bottom hem.

Hope this helps.
