Rivet & Thread Ex-Boyfriend Tee

Rivet & Thread Ex-Boyfriend Tee is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the hunt is over!! best grey tee ever! yes, i struggled with the price tag at first and once i got it, i immediately put it on and did not regret it one bit. i'm a big grey t shirt lover and have been on the hunt for the perfect basic grey tee. i've wanted a version like my husband's tee - heavier weight and all. i was over the whisper cotton tees because, while lightweight, either has holes in them, stretches, shrinks, who knows. those are nice for a few wears but not forever. the neckline is a slightly wider crew neck but nothing out of the ordinary. the weight is perfect - heavy, perfect drape, and doesn't show those pesky rolls! the sleeves can look like they are at an awkward length but they fit for me. i bought a small (normally xs-s in madewell tops) and it's looser, more bf type tee. i loved it so much i bought a back up in the xs where it's slightly more fitted but still loose hanging. now i'm thinking about buying a back up for the back up- that's how much i love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite tee Favorite tee that I own. Wish there were more colors! It's heavier than their basic tees so it isn't see-through(means I don't have to wear an undershirt!). Nice heathered grey. Seriously, please make more colors! I wear this too often!
