Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fantastic linen tee from Madewell! I already have a few linen tees from Madewell, but I think this one might be my favorite! It's very comfortable and stylish, and even though I sized down to a medium from my usual large, it still drapes just like on the model (for reference, I'm 5'3" and a 36E). Also, for those of you who read the previous review concerning grammatically incorrect French and are now worried about walking around in this tee looking uneducated, that reviewer was wrong. La Cédille is the accent in question (ç), and it is never used under a "c" before the letters "e" or "i", because French rules of pronunciation dictate that the "c" automatically becomes soft in front of those two letters (so "comme ci, comme ça").

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this, Love that! Love this linen tee, very comfortable, boxy fit but not too oversize, if you want it to fit like the model you might want to size up but I prefer the way it fits in my normal size M- 5'8 150 36C bust The fabric is very cool and light but not at all see through, the sleeves are closer to the elbow than shoulder, I like that, the length hits my hip, the neck is an easy almost ballet neck. Value was great as I purchased on sale. Madewell T's are my new fav.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun tee It's dressy and comfy. I like that I can wear this to work. It also has a little personality, which makes it fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from get this shirt... sized down once according to other reviews. Still has a beautiful drape and just lovely quality to the tee. Let me sum 65 year old, very hip Momma saw me leaving the house in just this, black leggings, shades and glads. She said "Michelle, that shirt is HOT!!" Sometimes Madewell supplies the greatest ingredients!! again...gorgeous quality, effortless style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and lightweight Looking forward to a hot day to wear this lightweight and cooling fabric tee. It is loose in the body, but the flow of the material makes it perfect for this cut of shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this so much I want another one as backup I can't explain it, but for some reason I reach for this shirt every day I have off from work (weekends). Yes the shirt is big - I picked a small and I generally like mediums. The small was just boxy but draped, and long enough, that I love it. I have washed the shirt several times and then hung to dry. No shrinkage or damage. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, relaxed fit shirt. This tee is adorable!. Nice clean lines with simple wording and simple relaxed fit. The shirt is a bit boxy but I think that's the look you want. I would go with your normal size. I am 5'6" and usually wear a M in tshirts and this fit loose without it feeling big or slouchy. Nice material but a bit see-through. It felt pretty soft and not scratchy for linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found in Translation First thing I did was find out what Comme Ci Comme Ca means (roughly, so-so). I got a medium and it fits loose, though doesn't swallow me. For having a marled linen feel, it's really cool and doesn't show sweat, which is a plus. I washed it in cold water, hung it to dry after I shook it out really well to kind of enlarge its washed shape, and it bounced back to original fit.
