I purchased this shirt for my husband, and you wouldn't believe how soft it is! It feels like silk, but made of cotton, and only gets softer with each wash, and without shrinking. My husband likes to wear it in the evenings to sit outside and relax after work. It also does a great job of wicking away sweat. He wears a size large and he has caught me wearing it to bed because of the softness of the cotton. The shirt fits true to size. Also has some stretch to it. I highly recommend this shirt for the man in your life to help him be comfortable! Thank you, Birchbox, for selling high quality clothing!
