I expect this tunic to see a ton of wear this winter! It’s just what I hoped, super cozy and comfortable, and looks good with leggings, jeans, or layered with other pieces. The fit is just right, it’s long enough to cover my rear, just enough ease through the body, and the arms are not too tight. The sleeves are long, and I’m not a huge fan of thumb holes but the cuffs are stretchy enough to fold up or push up out of the way. I didn’t find the placement of the holes to be a problem with the fit easy enough to flex with movement. I just don’t use them very much. Marine blue is a beautiful color.
I absolutely LOVE this tunic! I'm on sabbatical abroad for a semester and packed a small, predominantly wool& wardrobe. Weather just turned today, and I transitioned from dresses to jeans and this shirt. I packed very minimally, but now I feel even MORE overpacked... I will probably just spend the next three months in this shirt! I will be ordering a few more soon and would love to see even more colors!
Positives: fabric touch and feel, GORGEOUS beetroot color. Negative: the thumb hole is a deal breaker for me. The hole is situated nearly completely opposite (pinky side) from where it should be. I saw another reviewer mentioned that it was placed awkwardly, and I thought surely it can't be that bad. No, really, it IS that bad. If you try to use it, it completely twists the garment arm and looks ridiculous and doesn't feel good either. It's a shame because otherwise it would be a fantastic tunic. Returning it today.
We are sorry to hear the thumb hole didn't line up as it should. We know it can be easy for the sleeve to get twisted when putting it on but, after straightening out the seam, that thumb hole should certainly line up and not be twisted at all. Our support team will reach out to help get this sorted out for you!
I'm between an L and XL. I have a Sloan in XL and a Stella in an XL, and I chose Large for the Halsey. It is perfect. If I could wear this shirt every day, I would. It is soft, fits beautifully, and feels great. The beetroot color is amazing. Yes, the arms are a bit long, but I just push them up. No big deal. Once it gets colder, this may be a layer under my black Sierra. It also works perfectly with my Axis leggings. I'll be ordering this in other colors soon!
I love everything about the shirt, except the thumb hole placement. First, let’s talk about how awesome it is: material is very much like the weight of a Maggie, sleeve length is phenomenal, flattering cut of the shirt. I went hiking with it recently, and it was the perfect weight for a cool morning. Now, let’s talk about the thumb holes. The thumb holes are currently placed in the under arm seam that extends into the cuff. Because of this placement when you put your thumb in the hole, the shirt sleeve will twist. And I’ve checked a few other off the rack items I have with thumb holes and every single one has the hole placed more in line with where your thumb would be, versus in the seam line. This means the thumb hole is slightly off to the side from the underarm seam, kinda a half way point around the sleeve. If you don’t mind the sleeve, twisting a little bit, then I would ask why are you waiting to buy the shirt! You could also buy it and sew up the thumb hole, like many people do with their pockets in the dresses. But other than that thumb hole placement it is a fabulous shirt.
