Rated 1 out of 5Â by FIRSTTIME Stiff fabric sewn with very itchy thread
These tees are sewn with nylon or polyester thread to which I'm severely allergic. I had to remove this right away as it scratched & left red marks down my arms. The fabric itself is not very soft at all for cotton. I suspect it might be coated with some chemical finish. I also didn't care for the plasticized tag in the bag (it's printed on & I don't want plastic chemicals rubbing against my skin, I want a tag that I can cut off easily). I bought the size L which is my normal size and the body fit ok (form fitting in the chest) but the sleeves are very tight. Not good! I bought a white and a navy and both had the same problem. Also when they say "deep navy" they're not kidding: it's extremely dark, almost black. I look great in navy, but not in this shade. For the plus: I like the crew neck and the fact that the sleeves are long. Everything else was a deal breaker for me but you might like it if you're not sensitive to scratchy tight seams against your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ILuvTshirts Perfect T-shirt
I love this T. I have had two that I ordered from a discount T shirt webpage years ago, and have been looking for them ever since. I have a curvy shape with a petite frame. Its hard sometimes to get a T that doesn't cling or stretch in the bust line but is not too large in the shoulders. This is perfect. The style is a bit longer now than the older ones, I think due to the changes in clothing trends the past few years. Overall this shirt is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered one in XL and one in L, the sizes seem to be pretty true.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Anonymous Troubling changes in sizing and quality
In addition to this style, I ordered some "featherweights" in extra small, and they were truly extra small --- only about 30 inches at the chest. But THESE, oh dear, the opposite problem. With no extra small available , I ordered size SMALL. And in fact, if sizing was standard across models, that would have been fine. I have ordered this top, or a very similar precursor style, in the past in the "small" size, and have been very pleased. The prior version was fitted at the waist (trim but not binding), right (for me at least) at the shoulder, in sleeve length, and also at the bust. The fabric was a sturdy but soft cotton knit. This version, produced in a different country, which fact may or may not pertain to the issues at hand, is cut from a coarser cotton fabric. It has lost any pretensions of a fitted waist: if anything, it now is wider at the waist than just below the sleeve (ie the chest). The waist (the WAIST !!) is a full 36 inches (or 18 inches measured flat) !!!! This is at least 6 inches larger than the former version !!!!. It is also about 1 1/2 inches wider from neck to shoulder seam than the prior version -- which means 3 plus inches total. As someone else commented, the sleeves are also longer -- at least an inch as I recall. If the original version fit you, this assuredly will NOT. ARGGH. It used to be just what I needed -- soft, simple and well fitted, terrific with jeans or under a suit with pearls. NOT now. Okay for working in the garden I guess, but for that I reserve my old, worn out clothes.
