Modern Linen Heathered Muscle Tee

Modern Linen Heathered Muscle Tee is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic gray tank ... great for layering! This is a great, classic grey tank top! I love the linen-ish fabric ... it elevates this tank above just a simple cotton tank and makes it something that can be worn under layers or on it's own. I've already worn it a bunch of times this summer and plan to layer it under shirts, jackets, and sweaters this fall. For reference, I'm 5'3", 120 lbs, 34A chest and the size XS fit perfect (loose, but not too loose).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect staple item This is my go to top right now. I love the muscle tee design...not a fan of thin straps. The neck line was perfect. I have this in black as well and debating going back for the white one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably my favorite tee. The material of this tee is GREAT. I dread buying tees because I always find that the material is subpar and I end up tossing them after far too few washes and wear. Not the case with this one! The material is so sturdy and the cut is great. I wear it all the time and need it in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite tee! This is the 5th one I've bought! This linen is comfortable and drapey but not too clingy or soft. But I especially love the shape - love the extended shoulder and body shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madewell muscle tees are my go-to shirts I have this style shirt in every color. They hold up very well and the fabric makes them easy to dress up or down, plus the lack of sleeves makes it perfect for layering under a jacket. Every time a new email from Madewell comes I cross my fingers it's telling about a new color of this shirt (hint hint guys!!) The grey heather seems to run a tiny bit larger than the other colors, especially in length, but I haven't washed it yet and even tho I wash in cold and hang to dry the linen does usually shrink a little bit so we will see. The price seems fair for how well these have held up, and if you can get them on sale they're a steal. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have one in 3 different colors I have this shirt in grey, black, and white and I wear them constantly. They're just a perfect basic. I wash them with delicates and then lay them flat to dry and they've maintained their size and shape nicely. They stretch a bit while wearing so size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want this in every color! This is a really great tee - very flattering, and I love the seam in the back and Madewell's gorgeous linen jersey. I am 5'8", 34B, and 125# and got a size Medium. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect broken in tee Soft, comfortable, wonderfully slouchy, like your favorite tee that you've had forever. Great quality linen. Washed it once, retains shape, but I wouldn't recommend drying it. (I've killed a couple of my linen tees by drying them, they shrunk) Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I got two This is the perfect grey tank- perfect color, perfect fit (I like a bit oversized so I sized up). Because it's linen it isn't super soft but it's worth it for the heft and structure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from timeless This top deserves more than a one-star-review, so I thought I'd pipe up:) Just received this in the mail in my usual size small- I'm right on the edge of xsmall/small with most Madewell tops, but I usually prefer the slightly looser fit- and I'm happy that I went with small again for this. This top will get a lot of wear, and I am confidant that cold/gentle cycle wash/ hang dry- will work for this top- as it does for all of my other Madewell linen.
