Central Shirt in Sadie Stripe

Central Shirt in Sadie Stripe is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better with less gathering at shoulders Central shirts didn’t work for me and I had given up on it. I have 4 Courier shirts so I was really interested in the Central - except, all the gathering at the shoulders kept making my shoulders really big and hunched. This one, it seems, they streamlined and took away the gathers and it looks clean and really pulls the look together. The colors are surprisingly flattering with lots of bottoms!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Love this shirt! Every time I pull it out of my closet and put it on I feel like a 2018 version of a barbershop quartet member and that makes me VERY happy! Good fit, like the capped sleeves, loose and comfy, very versatile piece! Excited to continue wearing this summer Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from summer's favorite!! great quality and color. for sizing: I'm 5'4'', 115lbs and XXS is the perfect fit. It looks just like on the model. If I lift my arms and it's tucked in my pants, it does come out though. So, if you want to prevent that, probably XS is the better option_

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plays Well With Others This shirt is my ultimate wardrobe multi-tasker. I have long been a fan of the central shirt and this is one of my favorite iterations of the design. The colors add nice, subtle design and when pairing with bottoms goes well with so many different colors and materials. The slightly oversized fit is perfect for a breezy, summer or spring day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everybody needs at least one Central shirt Central shirts have quickly become a wardrobe staple for me, I have acquired 7 this past year. This particular shirt is 100% cotton and a bit more structured than my other centrals. The fabric is also a bit stiff, but I am thinking it will soften with more washing and wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress up or down! Love this top! It runs quite large, but I think that’s the point. I wear a small in madewell tees, but ordered this in an xsmall. I considered exchanging for an xxsmall but decided to keep the xsmall. I’ve only worn once so far, paired with denim, booties, and a charcoal gray trucker jacket with a black bandana. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn’t pass up! I’m a Courier advocate but the stripe caught my eye in store. (I’m not normally a fan of this style). It’s sooooo cute on. I sized down 1 size. Normally a medium in Courier but this I took a Small. Could’ve gotten the XS but it lost its cool vibe and was then too snug in chest. I’m 32d Snag it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect short sleeve button up! This shirt is an amazing piece to use both casually as well as in a business casual setting! It’s very comfortable, slightly oversized in style but still true to size, and has more stiffness to it than you’d expect but is absolutely not an issue! It’s great to wear structured or relaxed. Highly recommend!
