Should Linen shirts be baggy, or does this look ridiculous?

    I was looking for a linen shirt for the upcoming Florida summer heat, I know there supposed to be a tad baggy but does this look to big? Shirt size is medium, I'm 5'9" 156 pounds Sorry in advance for poor pictures. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like you stole the top half of some scrubs from a hospital worker.

    [​IMG] Now that's funny, and maybe will go in my sig... Thanks for the replies I was afraid it was to big and for some reason still bought it thinking it would magically shrink over night.

    It looks way too baggy. Not good at all. Very few designers make nice fitted linen shirts.

    Baggy is never the right word. Relaxed may work, but not baggy.

    One little hint I'd like to give you though, is that you should always check to see how the shoulders fit when you try stuff on. If the shoulder seam goes past your shoulder and sags down as it does in this photo, then you can go a size down. I'm sure you'll look 10 times better this way.

    I think that shirts generally need to fit fairly well to your body. Jackets, coats, and sweaters can fit bigger depending on style being sought, but the basic shirt should be a good fit.

    It's too big for you in the shoulders and chest.

    I think s/s linen shirts should have a relaxed fit, but that's baggy.

    Linen shirts should be relaxed.

    Looks like my one linen shirt that I should never have bought. Personally, I haven't found linen shirts in a good fit.
