very nice fabric, until it shrunk
by Richard from San Jose CA USA 

Pros: The nicest fabric of any pilot shirt I've ever worn.
Cons: Sleeves too short after washing and drying
Review: I really liked the fabric. But after I washed and dried the shirt, the sleeves were a little too short. The long sleeve 34/35 length is now about a half inch too short. The Van Husen Aviator 34/35 length sleeves still fit after washing, but this shirt does not fit any more. The pockets are a little too small to fit my passport while still buttoning the pocket flap.

Too tight
by Stephen from Alexandria VA USA

Left pocket opening not wide enough for Pasport

meh, won't buy again
by Capt Chris from Potomac River 

Pros: its white, wasnt missing any buttons
Cons: weird fit, thin material
Review: Not sure what is going on here. It looks like this shirt used to get good reviews. But what just came in the mail is not what I was hoping for. The material is definitely a lot thinner than what I was expecting. I'm 6" 220lbs and I ordered a 17.5 34/35, this is my dress shirt size that I own many of. Something about the way this is cut makes the sleeves seem 2 inches shorter than they are. I held the shirt up to one of my dress shirts, and the sleeves are identical. So I guess its just an odd fitting/cut shirt. I usually roll my sleeves up, so I'm keeping the shirt. But if that is not your plan, I'd order up in sleeve length or avoid this shirt all together

Dodgy collars, overpriced - don't live up to the hype
by Comanche Pilot from Australia 

Pros: Long sleeves
Cons: Awful collars, loose fit
Review: I have to agree with Captain Morgan below: these shirts are poor quality for the price. The collars stick up - won't lie flat (as a number of others here have already mentioned) - and the fit is quite loose (I'm 6' 180lbs). I bought two of these and two Van Heusen 100% cotton aviator shirts at the same time, delivered to Australia. The Van Heusen's are much nicer shirts at 2/3 the price. The cotton is comfortable (much nicer than polyester blends), the fit is good, the collars are the way they should be and they are just a nice shirt to wear. They are also made in Honduras. The AP Elite is made in China and feels like it: cheap, loose and dodgy collars. They don't look or feel professional at all. Just wish Van Heusen made the 100% cotton in a long-sleeved design. My AP Elite shirts are going straight back to the shop. I don't like them at all.

This was a great choice
by A Customer from PAYETTE ID USA 

Pros: Has a longer tail. Has a quality feel to it.
Cons: Not totally wrinkle free
Review: I read the reviews and was a bit skeptical about buying the shirt. After I received it and tried it on I was extremely pleased with it. It has a longer than normal tail, which I like. It has a quality feel about it. I was pleased with it.

by Jeff Scott from Bartlett TN USA 
Pros: comfortable material, bright white color
Cons: not enough length in the body or the sleeves
Review: The shirt is advertised as a tall with 36/37 sleeves. The length of the shirt may be a tad longer than non tall shirts but it needs more length all the way around as it comes very close to pulling out of my pant's waistband after I have sat down and then stood back up a number of times. Additionally the sleeves are at best on the low end of the 36 inch length. There's no way they are anywhere near 37 inches. When I raise my arm straight out in front of me there are close to 2 inches of bare wrist that is uncovered by the shirt's sleeve because it is not a true 36/37 sleeve length. In summary, add a little more length to the shirt's body length and a good inch and a half to the sleeve length and you've got yourself a fine shirt.

Nice shirt
by William from IRVINE CA USA 

Pros: Looks great, wears well
Cons: Material a little on the skimpy side
Review: Very nice shirt. Fits well. However, one thing that sort of bothers me about this shirt. I was under the impression that the material would be a bit heavier than the other shirts that I purchased from this store. I would have rated the shirt 5 stars if it was just a little bit thicker in the material. All other features are 5 star rated. All in all, I am happy with this shirt. I plan to purchase additional shirts down the road.

don't believe the hype... this shirt is terrible.
by capt.morgan from portland, OR 

Pros: nice bright white, sleeve length
Cons: everything else are blatant lies
Review: these shirts are absolute garbage. I bought 2 of these and got them in the mail today and already hate them. great claims are made about the "dress shirt quality" and "easy care" of these shirts that are just blatant lies. the sizing of these shirts runs quite large. the neck size and chest measurements were too large, I am 6'1 220 and felt like i was wearing a sail. the sleeve length's were good. I tried to wash and dry them to shrink them some so they would fit better, the only thing I found out from that was that the claims made about being "easy care" are lies. had to spend almost 30 minutes ironing all the wrinkles out of only 2 shirts. the collars are less than amazing as well. while collar stays are sewed into the collars, they are far too soft and short to keep the collars down. long story short, not only would I not buy these again (might even buy different ones after a few times worn) but I would not recommend them to anyone else. if you are on the fence about these, thinking the shirts can't be as bad as the reviews sound (which is what I thought) save your money. buy something else.

Not worth it
by Tim from az 

Pros: Neck size was right. Nice collar
Cons: Didn't fit right. Sleeves too short. Tight across the shoulders. Poor fabric.
Review: I had high hopes for this shirt after reading some reviews. Maybe they changed how they are made. I've been a Van Heusen Commander wearer for years. This shirt is twice the price and half the quality. After one, two day, trip this thing is going straight to the trash.  I'll compare it to a $20 Commander. The neck size was good, too tight across the shoulders (no center pleat), sleeves are too short, and the fabric is too thin to hold a press.

a little over rated
by Mark from Ellicott City MD USA 

Pros: good fit
Cons: thin and greying to early
Review: This shirt is OK . It has good sleeve length to advertised size but the neck size runs larger than advertized. The fabrick is greying to fast it has been professionally cleaned 5 or 6 times and looking thin and grey.

OK but needs some design changes
by A Customer from Charlotte, NC 

Review: I've been flying foa a major for over 15 years and continue the search for a really great shirt. Was hoping this was it. Overall a good shirt. A couple points:

1. The false flap on the left pocket is not really a false flap, it's sewed throught the middle to provide a pen divider. The result is the pocket is not really useful as a false flap.

2. I am normally a 33" sleeve. I ordered the 34/35 and the sleeves are short to the point of annoyance. Not very good QA here. The cuffs are tight but not as tight as many shirts made in the Asian marketplace. The collars have a tendency to pop up but do better under heavey starch.

3. On the bright side, the cotton/poly mix works well and the shirt is correctly tapered to give a clean appearance. If the collar and pocket flap were fixed, and the sleeves actually cut to the length specified, this would be a great pilot shirt.

Best I've found; but needs "no iron" aspect
by David from La Jolla CA USA 

Pros: Amply girth, arms are long enough.
Cons: not really "no iron"
Review: Finally, a "tall" shirt that's also ample in the belly . . . to accommodate my ( umm . . ) professional girth. Could use a "no iron" finish and could be a little heavier. Ideally, if it matched the Fredericks "no iron" shirt (the one with the button-down collar ), but had your pilot's pockets and epaulet-style, it would be perfect. I've ASKED Frederick's to match your style, but they won't. So, I keep buying from you.

by August from Huntington Beach CA USA 

Pros: The Oxford look is definitely a great look. Very crisp and professional.
Cons: The collar. It needs improvement!!.
Review: Very Comfortable; the collar tends to stick up a bit sometimes in the cockpit while reaching for one of the overhead switches. A bit loose on the sides. I wish it felt more fitted.

More than I was expecting.
by John from Nevada City CA USA 

Pros: First Class
Cons: None
Review: I was shopping around for uniform shirts for our Marine Corps League Detachment. The shirts will be worn during Color Guards, funeral services, formal functions, and parades. The fist time I wore the shirt was for the Installation of New Officers. What I wasn't expecting was a military grade uniform shirt. Everything about these shirts are first class.

Finally found the PERFECT shirt
by Bobby from Spokane WA USA 

Pros: see description
Cons: No cons that I can find
Review: More expensive than a Van Heusen Commander but well worth the extra bucks. Price should not be a determining factor for this shirt. I found that it is very much worth the extra bucks compared to the van heusen. Shirt is WHITE. Not some off shade of white like my van heusen. It is a true bright white. The fit was perfect. Between a fitted cut and a regular cut. Not a lot of excess fabric around the middle and not binding in any way. I wear a 17.5 neck with 34/35 sleeve. I am a size 46 chest and 40 across my bellybutton. By comparison, the same size shirt in my van heusen resulted in a lot of excess fabric at the waist and required tailoring. Great quality stitching. Re-enforced button holes. (button holes on my van heusen raveled) Buttons sewn on with heavy stitching. Two buttons on the cuffs for easy adjustment. Heavy collar stays in position. Epaulets are straight and on top of the shoulder. It sounds odd to point this out but my van heusen commander had the epaulets slightly forward of the top of the shoulder requiring a tailor to relocate them and place them straight and on top. I am very happy with the AP Elite Pilot shirt. It is an absolutely perfect quality shirt!

Best of poor selection out there.
by A Customer from Birmingham AL USA 

Review: Let's face it. Pilot shirts aren't the classiest shirts available. But among the choices out there, this one's the best. Better material than most. Cut well. Main problem: collar needs stiffening - tends to bend instead of staying in place.

Great Dress Shirt

great for tall guys; collar flips up
by A Customer from La Jolla CA USA 

Pros: trim, long shirttail, good long sleeves and wrinkle-free
Cons: collar points flip up at inopportune moments
Review: This shirt stayed trim and fit over a twenty-six hour trip from Brussels to La Jolla. Long-sleeves were really long-sleeves, even tho' the "size" was 36/37 . Usually, that means the sleeves are on the short side of 36. A drawback: the collar points flip up when one isn't aware they're flipping up. They only rise above the shirt about an inch, but that constantly occurs. Solution: put heavier curled plastic tabs into the shirt-collar points to keep the collar points pointed down --- or make this same shirt in a button-down model. THAT shirt I'd buy !!

A shirt worth purchasing
by Robert Hartle Pilot for C.F.M. In Smyrna, TN from Nashville area of TN USA 

Pros: Material Thickness, Brite Clean White Look....Just Sharp! Sizing seems to be accurate and comfortable
Cons: Maybe just a little more material than needed. Arms sleeves on the long sleeves I bought are more generous than really needed, but not a show stopper at all.
Review: For years as a pilot in a charter operation I have purchased the Van Heusen pilot shirts until recently. I took a chance on the AP Elite Pilot Shirt in the long sleeve style. Loved it! The material is heavier and has less tendency to be "transparent" and show your undershirt. It is a brite white material that when next to my Van Heusen shirts really shows the difference. If you want a recommendation for a shirt, this would be the one to purchase. I will be purchasing additional shirts to phase out the Van Heusen collection that I have. Enjoy!

by Steve from Alexandria, VA 
Review: The AP shirts arrived today. I found them to be More, not less, tapered than the Van Heusen Commanders. Your ad states "This is a generous, full-cut shirt that will easily accommodate larger torso. For average or smaller frames, we recommend buying a half size less or consider the Van Heusen pilot shirts which are slightly more tapered. Tie and epaulets sold separate." This statement doesn't ring true as they are much tighter than the VH.
