Very soft
The fabric is exceptionally soft, and the has a nice drape. The shirt fits TTS (5'6", 120 lbs and took a S) but it's just bordering on too short - I have to wear it with high- or mid-rise pants. If you're taller or have a longer waist, and aren't in the market for a crop top, you may want to skip this one. The tag says dry-clean only (ridiculous for a top that is mostly cotton), but I hand washed the top in cold water and line dried it and had no problems with shrinking/ stretching, pilling, or color loss.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Will shrink when washed, order TTS
I own this tee in six colors, and I adore it! The shirt may run HUGE when you first purchase it, but it definitely shrinks after the first wash (hand wash cold water and hang dry according to the directions on the tag). Mine have all shrunk about 2-3 inches in length, making it a perfect, slightly-oversized, slouchy top. I don't dry clean my clothing, so I'm not sure what happens if you go that route, but if you plan to hand wash, get your normal size, and just know that the shirt will probably be too big before you wash it. Aside from the initial shrinkage, these shirts have held up well after multiple (hand) washings and haven't faded, become misshapen, or pilled at all.

Beautiful leather
I usually take a 7.5 or an 8 in most shoes, and I have wide feet and a high arch. I wear a 38 in R & B Newburys (and in R & B Durham boots) and these were no exception. The heels are high, but they're very stable and surprisingly comfortable - I can walk around in them all day without any discomfort. The leather on these shoes is just gorgeous! Perfect.

Indestructible!
I love it! The leather is basically indestructible, it fits everything, and I get so many compliments on this bag. My one complaint is that the shoulder strap is too long for me (I'm 5'6") and when I use it the bag hits too low on my hip/ thigh, and I'm kind of kicking the bag when I walk. I also scratched up the clasp on mine by not keeping it hooked (fortunately a jeweler was able to buff out the scratches!), so be sure to lock the clasp when you carry it. UPDATE: I had a container of tomato soup that I had packed for lunch leak all over the inside of the bag the other day, and then sit for a few hours before I noticed it. This is the sort of thing that would totally have ruined most other purses, but all I had to do was wipe out the inside and the purse looked totally new again. It didn't stain or leak through the lining at all! Seriously amazing.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Sizing all over the place
I love these tops and have four of them - they have a great drape and are so comfortable and versatile. BUT the sizing seems to be all over the place from season to season. I'm 5'6", 120 lbs, 34C, typically a size 4/S, and usually take a S in this top for a looser fit. However, depending on the season, when I've tried on new colors, the sizing is often weird. I tried on an XS in blue that fit larger than my usual S, and I own one in black in a M that's actually a little smaller than the other size S muscle tanks that I also own. The sizing has been off when new, and they don't appear to shrink or stretch out with washing. I hand wash and line dry, and these tops all still look like new after multiple washes (no pilling or color loss).

Great tank!
I was a big fan of T tanks, and then picked up one of these muscle tees on sale, and I'm a total convert. It's got the same great drape as his tanks, but it's a lot easier to wear because there's much more coverage , so fewer concerns about what kind of bra or tank to wear underneath. Like the tanks, the tee hand washes well, but it's delicate, so you'll want to be careful with bra hooks when you wash it, and with belts and such when you wear it. I am 5'6", 120, 34C and typically take a size S/4 on top. The S in this top fits me well for an oversized look. If you want something that fits more closely, size down.

Great basic tank
I have this tank in black and in white and both are great. The tank is meant to fit a bit large, but it isn't nearly as long on me as it appears to be on the model. It hits just below my hip bone. I got my normal size for a loose fit, though probably could have sized down. I also think it's more flattering than it appears to be on the model. The material doesn't pill very much and the tank hasn't become misshapen with hand washing, like rayon often does.

Great basic blouse
I own two of these, in white and in black, and they're both flattering and they feel good on. The only drawback is that sometimes they feel too masculine, and the pocket flaps seem to wrinkle easily while I'm wearing the shirt, which just looks weird. I was initially concerned about what size to order, since I heard they run large, but I ordered my regular size (a small) and it has a nice, loose fit without being so huge that I'm swimming in it. I avoid dry cleaning whenever humanly possible, and have washed my Equipment shirts a number of times (in the machine in a mesh bag on delicate/cold with Woolite), hung them dry, and steam pressed them, and haven't had any problems at all with stretching or shrinking or fading - they're well-made blouses.

Leather looks cheap
I'm a 34C and usually a 4 on top; the S fit well through the shoulders and waist, but pulled a bit across the chest when I buttoned it all the way up. The cut is flattering and the wool is nice and doesn't seem like it will pill at all, but the leather looks plastic-y and the buttons look a little cheap in person.

Very nice
I am 5'6", 120 lbs, usually a 26 in jeans and a size 4 in dresses/ tops. The size 4 fit me well overall, though it's looser than on the model. Given how short the pants are on the model, I figured they'd be the right-ish length on me, but they're actually very long and I'm going to have to have the pants taken up a few inches. The fabric is fine and has a nice weight to it - it's a lovely piece.
