Such a fine cord it is a subtle texture. I bought it looking for layering and will easily take a T shirt underneath, scarf at the neck and a jacket over the top. It's a straight shape with a curved hem so not one to hang over your jeans though would work in that 'boyfriend' way! The finish is just lovely with no untidy seams on the placket and double overstitching on the shoulders and cuffs. I would have liked the collar a tad bigger and a tad stiffer though.
