Retro Tee

Retro Tee is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great thicker tee I'm a sucker for a super soft cotton shirt, this one is not one of those - it's a thicker shirt for crisper fall days. I really like this shirt and the style, a slightly low mock neck. I really like this shirt and I have it in all 4 colors (berry, blue + the 2 striped versions). I'm 5'6'' and 120lbs / 34A I got the XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest vintage tee I'm obsessed with these t shirts! I bought the cream and green striped version in store and then went online the next morning and found the solid colors ON SALE so snagged both the blue and pink immediately! They're so cozy and chic, go with everything, and are more dressed up than a regular tee. Love love love loooove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Madewell is BACK I completely agree with the reviews below saying how great the quality is. Absolutely adorable with Madewell’s Road tripper jeans (I have a lot of madewell jeans but these are my FAV) and some white vans. I got the warm berry color and it’s perfect - just wish there were more colors! Keep it up madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish this came in black, I'd buy 37 of them This fabric is so great, I love wearing this shirt. It's my favorite shirt I own now. I'm a bit on the small chested side, so I love it. I can see how it's only made for a certain body type though. Otherwise, it would feel like a scuba shirt. You basically need to have zero going on in the boob department, which is perfect for me. This fabric is so great. I hate tee shirts these days, the fabric is always so flimsy and thin. This is such great quality. I wish it came in charcoal black. I was fooled by the reviews and bought a small. It was too big so I went back and an x-small worked perfectly, it runs true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shirt is dope! I love a good thick t-shirt and this one did not disappoint. The color is really pretty (I got red) and the high neck makes it more special than your average t-shirt. I sized up because I like an oversized fit and I noticed that it ran a little small (for me at least), Overall, I recommend this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thicker fabric like the old Madewell days I ordered the berry colored tee but was pleasantly surprised to see that it is more like a short sleeved sweatshirt! What a great value for this thick fabric! The berry is a washed red color. I am 5'8 128 and ordered a small. It fits similar to the model in photos or slightly tighter. I could've gotten a medium but the small did not shrink excessively. This is not an oversized Madewell top. I wear an XS in the Whisper cotton tees and blouses. Thank you Madewell for making tops in this thicker fabric again. Years ago when I first discovered Madewell, the tees were all heavier weight cotton

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Colors Please! I got this tee in the blue, but I'm about to order red. I hope Madewell makes the basics like black and white. I absolutely love the thickness of the cotton and the high neck. Can we also get some long sleeve versions? These are awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Solved! many of my thin tees have developed holes in them on the front middle just above the hem. it was a mystery. Moths? impossible! why were the holes in the exact same spot on all the tees? my Rice-grad-math-major-daughter seems to have solved it. she feels it's the seat belt causing the tees to rub against the zippers on jeans. well, it is not a problem with this tee. its thicker fabric has been "hole" proof. YAY! have it in both colors and am hoping that madewell will make it in more colors. love the fit, the length, the casual feel - everything about it! kudos to you madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I am very pleased with this t shirt. the material and fit is just right. It is a bit loose but still has some structure to it.
