Embroidered Tie-Front Safari Shirt

Embroidered Tie-Front Safari Shirt is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and unique I'm really liking this shirt. It fits boxy, like many Madewell shirts, but you can adjust how tight it is with the tie. The back really is unique and lovely. It's very safari-leader in the shirt, lovely party in the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! Tried it on in the store today and it was so cute -- a great khaki colour, and you can tie it to be a little more cropped -- or not. I'm usually a medium, but often go to a large for an oversized look and I did just that! It's just a little baggy, but still structured and looked great with my flare jeans. The only qualm I have is that the beautiful embroidery is covered by my long hair if I don't put it up in a pony tail...but I guess I'll be putting up my hair when I wear this shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of a kind piece First time I saw this top, I knew I have to get it. It does not disappoint! As the previous reviews mentioned, the detail on the embroidery is amazing! It looked cropped on the model, but it's actually just the perfect length as long as you wear high rise jeans. But if you don't mind a little skin showing, you could just wear it with regular rise jeans too. By far, my favorite top from Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful style with comfort and detailing to boot! I love this safari shirt. It is so cute and chic yet so sophisticated. It's a fun variation on what could be a drab work shirt. The detailing of the embroidery is beautiful and it looks so grand when I put my hair up. I love how it looks with jeans and when you tie it in the front it looks adorable and classy at the same time. Perfect shirt. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect end-of-summer shirt! I'm wearing this shirt at work today - it's the perfect cropped length to wear with high-rise jeans (completely office appropriate), and the embroidery is just beautiful! The material is prone to wrinkling, as it is 100% cotton, but that's the only complaint I have. Probably my favorite statement shirt from Madewell so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Embroidered Button Down I had no idea the back for this shirt was embroidered, but that could have been an oversight by myself when purchasing. However, I’m not mad at the surprise! I’d recommend this shirt it’s lightweight and well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile safari shirt This shirt is definetly a twist on the safari shirt. IM OBSESSED with the detailing on the back. I love that it’s a thinner material because Texas weather is no joke during the summer. I also throw on a denim jacket and I’m set for cooler climates. I’m usually a medium but I got a large so it would sit lower on my waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Embroidery on the back — nice idea! Loved this shirt the first time I spied it in the store and loved it more after trying it on. Nice quality and cute embroidery detail on the back, which is an interesting twist. This shirt's a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely embroidery, wrinkles easily I love the look of this shirt and have had my eye on it since it came out. The fabric is light and the photos are true to color. The embroidery is gorgeous! The only downside is that this shirt wrinkles super easily and looks kind of sloppy by the end of the day.
