Rivet & Thread Ex-Boyfriend Tee

Rivet & Thread Ex-Boyfriend Tee is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new Go-To tee - Buy it...You will LOVE this one! This tee is pure YES! Love the material -- slightly nubby and super-soft. The drape is great on this tee. It pairs equally well with jeans and sandals or skinny print slacks, heels, and statement necklace for a night out. I like the slightly oversized feel (I'm 5'1", 109 lbs and went with XS and it's loose but not crazy-big). Worth the $!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HG tee This shirt was pretty much an impulse purchase, encouraged by the rave reviews, so I wasn't getting too excited but I'm delighted to have been proven wrong! Honestly, this is the first thing I've bought from Madewell, and being plus-size its always a gamble shopping online, and with straight-sized brands, but this was such a success - the sizing is perfect, and as others have said, the weight and feel of the fabric is great, really good quality. I absolutely love the cut of the sleeves, and the length, and this is coming from someone who looks nothing like the model :P Genuinely, I think this is a worthy investment, something that goes with literally every item in my closet and which (fingers crossed) will wear well - now I just need it in white, black, navy....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please make this in more colors! I am so irritated that this only comes in grey! That’s how much I love it. I’m 5’2, 128 lbs, 34B and I have bigger shoulders. I’m pretty good at hiding a few extra pounds and I do that by finding flattering cuts in fabrics that don’t cling. The sleeve length is perfect, a little on the short side but perfect for me. Also, not too long. I would say this is a slimmer fit than a regular tee shirt but not tight. I love that this shirt has no slits at the side or a v neckline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best boyfriend tee This grey boyfriend tee is what i have been looking for. I like the relaxed and laidback fit. The frabic is so soft and yet not too thin. For reference i'm 5'3" and 108lbs, size XS fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Please I love everything about this tee, the fit the color, the material. It's a real winner. I would love if this tee came in more colors. At the very least a white tee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft I usually wear a large but with this shirt I ordered a medium because I didn't want the oversized look. The shirt feels amazing, so soft. I will be layering with it. It's not too thick or thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect t-shirt! I almost passed on this because of the price...and the fact that I have a zillion t-shirts. I love everything Rivet and Thread, read the reviews and couldn't resist. The color is perfect and it's a nice thick, non-clingy fabric. It has a really perfect wide drape around the neckline with a wide neck band. I went with my normal medium and it's a little oversized, and had I had the chance to try the small, I might have gone with that, although it is supposed to be over sized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best d@mn T Shirt I am here writing this review not only because this is the best d@mn t shirt, but because I desperately hope to influence Madewell to make it in more colors (tecked white, indigo, black, rodeo red, just more please!). It's so rare to find a shirt whose fabric feels substantial enough not to be seen through or to cling to the occasional "roll", but it's also so soft. The cut on the sleeve is so subtly different yet so flattering. Perfect length and width. I'm absolutely in love with this tee. Definitely worth the price, unlike so many other t's in the same tier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT T! I LOVE THIS SHIRT. I didn't look at the price before trying it on, and I fell in love with the fit. I found it to be true to size, but I am also 5'10" and about 145 pounds. Someone shorter may think it runs big. The fabric is soft and it washes beautifully!!! I would buy a hundred more of these in different colors if they were available!
