This is EXACTLY the kind of shirt I look for for my 13-year-old to wear to church, piano recitals, the theater, etc. It is cool/stylish enough that he will wear it (both the Quicksilver brand and in looks), and appropriate in my opinion. So many collared shirts have skulls, etc on them and I don't feel those are appropriate, especially for church. This one looks great and is good quality. True to size.
