by blimblamo Fits great. Quality better than the Broadcloth SuperShirt
I bought this shirt for my wedding day and it is fantastic. I've always like Stafford's SuperShirt but they changed the standard supershirt to the thinner broadcloth material. PinPoint is definitely better. i highly recommend this shirt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shoppennynomore They changed the fit
My mistake, I went to a Penny store nearby to get the dress shirts I have been wearing for decades and of course they only had one since inventories appear to be disappearing lately (not due to sales). I spoke with a clerk and I commented about the inventory and she offered to tell me that they also changed the sleeve cut and that it was a 'tailored' fit. I bought the one shirt then went back to work and ordered several more on line. When I got them I was very disappointed to find out that the tailored sleeve really meant that the shirst are impossible to move in. My forearms were literally wrapped tight by the sleeve. They are very uncomforatable and my forearms are not big by any means. I'll need to return all the shirts and find a new source going forward. Pennys has been a huge disappointment in last couple years and I can't afford to buy what I thought would be a consistent product only to find they change things up in a bad way. Do not but stafford shirts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Barrini JCP Changed Sizing - They No Longer Fit
I had been buying these Stafford shirts for many years. In fact, they were the only dress shirts I would buy. Mostly because of the stretchable collar button and I could always rely on their proper fit. When they would get worn, I would replace them with the same style and size, which is what I did on my latest purchase. Sadly, when I put them on, I realized that the sizing was totally different then it use to be. They were so tight that I could not move my arms. I returned them all. I had read similar complaints from other reviewers but did not heed their warnings. They replaced what they use to call "Classic Fit" with what they now call "Regular Fit". Why would JCP do this? Did they change manufacturers? Are they trying to reduce costs by using less material? Although JCP carries other brands, I will have to shop for those other brands elsewhere - it’s the principle of the thing. Does anyone know of another brand that has the stretchable collar button?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Woebegone The fit has changed a lot
My husband, age 45, has been wearing this pinpoint, cotton/poly blend shirt in the regular/classic fit for years (neck 17, sleeve 34/35). After reading recent reviews I tentatively ordered two new white shirts. The label reads the same size, cut, and pinpoint fabric cotton/poly blend as his previous shirts, BUT IT IS NOT THE SAME FIT. Let me emphasize that my husband is the same weight/size as before, but the shirt is not the same. My husband complained that the shirts felt tight about the shoulder, short on the sleeve, and tight around the forearm when he bent his elbows. I compared the sleeve to his old shirts, and sure enough, the new cut has been reduced by approx. 2 inches circumference in the forearm, and over three inches in the upper arm. My husband says it feels like a bad fitting slim/fitted shirt. He will be wearing these only when he can roll up the sleeves. My husband and my two sons will be shopping for a new brand of shirt. I can't figure out why JCP changed their "best selling shirt." We are very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Staffordfan Fit keeps changing
The Stafford shirts used to be the best deal available for high quality shirts. However, the fit has changed. I used to order athletic fit and fitted shirts that fit wonderfully (and still fit). I recently ordered fitted and the forearms are so tight (I don't have big forearms). The athletic fit ones i just ordered have no taper in the waist and look like what used to be called regular fit (very baggy around the waist line).
I keep experimenting with these shirts as they are my favorite. However, I can't seem to find the right fit as the fit keeps changing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Flatfoot0H40 Not the shirt it used to be
I've purchased/worn the Stafford Performance dress shirt, long sleeve, white, every day I've worked the last 27 years as a law enforcement Investigator. I've never believed any other shirt could provide the appearance and comfort I sought. Until recently. Something has happened to the fit of the shirt; there is no longer the room through the torso I appreciated when reaching, turning, etc; the arms/sleeves are so narrow and tight, I have to struggle to get my collar down in the back after tying my tie. Unfortunately, I recently purchased two of the shirts only to find the changes. I've since thrown the shirts in the trash and will look elsewhere for my dress shirts. Not all changes are for the best, Penney's. It's been nice knowing you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MartyS Sizing is no longer correct - Bad move JCP
Like many others, this JCP dress shirt was my go to shirt for years. I have recommended it to many. Easy to care for, fairly priced and durable. I've been wearing the same size for years. I just ordered another six shirts in "Regular" size.
My arms no longer fit in the sleeves. The sleeves are soooo tight that It restricts me from raising my arms and I feel that it won't be long before the material starts separating. The new cut is made for stick figure people.
I'm going to have to return the shirts that I just bought and find another style or supplier. From reading other reviews, this appears to be from a switch in the plant/ country of manufacture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Looking4Shirts What happened?
I am 5'8" 125lbs with 29" waist and 33" chest. This 15" 32/33 athletic cut was my go-to shirt that I've been wearing for years. Not anymore. This shirt redesign is broken. Instead of a tapered waist and looser shoulders, the waist makes me look like a marshmallow and the armpits are so small that I can't raise my arms to put on my tie. I put the new cut against the old one and there is a good inch less fabric in the arm holes and sleeves. Stay away from these new stafford shirts. Something was lost in translation when this cut moved from Mexico to Vietnam. JCP, bring back the old shirts! We are not built like cylinders with toothpics for arms. You had a great shirt now it's bad.
