This top itself is a nice weight and fit. But the thumbholes (at least on mine) are placed on the pinky edge of the sleeve, requiring you to twist the sleeve around to put your thumbs through. Most thumbhole garments are constructed with the thumbhole either on the thumb edge or, better, at the middle of the wrist to allow for comfortable rotation of the arm when wearing. It is a poor design and made this top a no-go for me.
Love the shape and the fabric for this shirt. Only downside is the sleeves are a tad on the short side for me. Works great as a sleeve but the thumb holes pull the fabric too much for my comfort.
I want to love this shirt and I will certainly wear it, but the sleeves are way too short, especially for thumb holes. The model photo is also 5'9" which deceptively shows long sleeves bunched at the wrists. The arm holes at the armpit are also pretty tight. I wear XL consistently in all brands. The arm/shoulder area is tight and the sleeves are way too short.
Fabric is LOVELY. Forest night color is AMAZING. But please make the sleeves longer.
Beautiful fabric, impeccable workmanship. Nice color. I ordered my regular size and the sleeves were long enough. The fit was flattering, hiding a heavy midsection. The bust was a bit tight. The neckline was a nightmare. It is not a wide crewneck. It is a boat neck. I don't like to fuss with my clothes, and, just trying it on, adjusted the neck multiple times to hide one or the other of my bra straps. Please, wool&, less of the scoops, vees, and boat necks. A simple crew neck is much easier to wear for me. I will be returning this top.
I first purchased my usual size, L, and the shirt fit well but the thumb holes were not anywhere close to my actual thumbs. In the model picture, Sofia has extra fabric in her sleeves so she could use the thumb holes. If I wanted to wear them, I had to pull the sleeves down so that the boat neck opening almost showed my shoulder. I do not have long arms nor do I typically have this issue with other garments. I sized up to XL and the thumb holes work, and though the shirt is baggy and unflattering, it's not as bad as it could be because there's not a shoulder seam. Overall I like the shirt but I really don't understand the sleeve length decision + thumb holes. If the shirt did not have the thumb holes, the sleeve length on the L would have been fine and bracelet length.
