Women's Work Wash Twill Shirt (#WS002)
Top Carhartt Quality... Large Fit
I have been wearing Carhartt since I was a young girl, and was so happy when us gals finally got some clothes to fit our curves (thank you, Carhartt!), although there are some items I still prefer to wear the men's line in.
I own this shirt in the Port color which I would describe as a deep eggplant, and it is gorgeous (far more striking in person). Of course, the shirt has the typical fantastic Carhartt quality that brings us here to invest in their products. It is very fitted for a woman's curves, which helps me out since I am built like a 12-year old boy (straight up and down), and a am a particular fan of the snap front and sleeves.
The sizing has been a bit of trouble for me. I am very small... I wear a 2 - 6, depending on cut, usually a four. 34B chest, and virtually no curves but have *very* broad shoulders for any woman, no matter her stature. In Carhartt tops I usually wear a Small. In this top, I had to exchange the Small for an EXTRA Small, which is also too big for me.
I live in the mountains, so it's great for layering, and I love it so much there's no way I'm returning it. In fact, I'm buying another one today (ha-ha)! I just need to take them into the tailor and have them fitted when I receive the second one.
In short: Highly recommended, but should perhaps size down.

great work shirt
Great shirt for working outside in warm weather to protect your arms from scratches and the sun. Fit is a bit big but the loose fit also keeps you cool.

I LOVE this shirt
This is the best investment I have ever made! It is great in warmer weather when I have to wear long sleeves because it is light then when I get done the snap bottons make it easy to get off even with gloves on. Very durable I weld and grind in it all the time and it comes clean every time I wash it. I just wish I had bought more of them when I found this one. Only downfall is its a little bit too long for my small body frame but most Carhartt stuff is

My granddaughter who is graduating in May from UW in Laramie will be working for the US BLM. Most of her work will be outdoors in the field and she needed work clothes. She is very happy with the two shirts we purchased for her. The shirts are attractive, functional, durable and comfortable for maximum performance on the job.

Good for Small Gals
I LOVE this shirt. It's always been hard for me to find tops that fit everywhere... Most are too tight in the chest area and the buttons 'peel'. This shirt works, though, and the material is tough AND comfortable!

great wilderness shirt
I was extremely pleased with how versatile this shirt was on a wilderness horse pack trip. The weight of the fabric was perfect for keeping the chill off in the morning and as we obtained higher heights in the late afternoon. it also cut the chill of the strong breezes around the alpine lakes. I like the western detail and cut as it always looks tidy tucked in or out as an over shirt. I especially like the ease of the snaps. I have a red and khaki colors and I would like one in each color.

Finally a ladies work shirt
This shirt has all the features I love in a work shirt. I love the snaps, the material, the styling for the woman's body the durability and quality carhartt is known for. It is worth the price, you won't be disappointed in the shirt.
