Plaid Button-Back Tie Tee

Plaid Button-Back Tie Tee is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I almost never buy things at full price but I was so smitten with this top that I couldn't wait and I am SO glad I went for it. It's cute, comfortable, and the fit is really flattering. It is just as it appears in the picture. The plaid design is woven, not printed. I am 5'6", 125 lbs and bought the S for a roomier fit. I consider my torso to be on the longer side and this hit right at my hip bone, so you will likely need high-waisted pants or a camisole underneath if you don't want to be tugging at it all day. If you're much taller than me, you may be out of luck on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and perfect I love everything about it. The cotton fabric is perfect heading into summer and the white checks aren't too see through. I do notice that the back buttons gape open and you can see skin moreso than if it was a front button i think, so if anyone is concerned about that...but I think it's great to keep things cool. I can wear this to work and just change out the bottoms to head out after. I'm 5'4" with a small/narrow build (120ish but weight can be deceiving) and got a xs. It's fine through my arms which I think are sort of average for my height/frame. It is a little short in the back for some reason though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this This top is adorable. The tie in the front is my favorite thing, and the buttons down the back make it look so classic. I also like how the sleeves are longer. Probably wouldn't wear it during the hot summer as the fabric heats up quickly. Although I like it so much that I might even wear it on a 100 degree day anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shirt I bought this shirt for the fun tie in the front and tie in the back. I was able to dress it up to wear it to work. I have bigger arms and the sleeves are just big enough, I would of given the shirt 5 stars if it had a touch more room in the sleeves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for me This shirt looks so pretty on the model, but unfortunately it is not flattering on me, who's only 5'3'' with a short torso. I got the XS one. The lower edge of this shirt would pile up on my sit bones, and the part between two back buttoms would open awkwardly and show some of my skin. It looks like a sack from the back.The front part is also too long that I have to fold it. I do like the fabric and style, but I think it would be much nicer on taller people.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No. No. No. I guess you have to be taller for this. I am only 5' tall and it just looks like a sack that I'm wearing backwards. Nice fabric and pattern though.
