The shirt would have been nicer without the V stitching. I didn't examine it closely on the site and the feature didn't really stand out on the site images as much as it does on the actual shirt. Still, the shirt feels like a quality and soft shirt and overall looks on the person as shown from a slight distance. Just up close observation of the v stitch which itself is a pattern of x stitches is in my opinion distracting and downplays the overall good (desired) look of the shirt. For the price and quality, happy with the purchase, but I would have sought the same shirt without the stitch had I realized. Again, a minor detail in the bigger picture. Also, I ordered a size up preferring to go too big if the size was true, but it turned out to be a correct move as the shirt fit perfectly.
