Good colour but
I bought the pink. The colour is vibrant and I love it. The cashmere is soft, snuggly and suprisingly warm for how thin it is. However, after two wears it is starting to ball under the arms and it has stretched out of shape already. It's a little shorter than I would like (I'm 5'8" and 140 lb and I got the small) but I wouldn't go up a size as it would be too wide across the body. The sleeves are a great length which is good as I have long arms. I got it at 70% off so given I didn't pay too much for it I'm OK with it but would have been disappointed if I'd paid full price as it isn't worth that much. It's a good addition to my winter work wardrobe as it goes nicely under suit jackets for a pop of colour. So overall OK but I wouldn't buy another one.

Really Happy But
Fit of this shirt is great. At 5'8" and 140 lb with a small waist I struggle to find tops that don't just look baggy on me and actually accent my shape. This shirt does very well and the colour is gorgeous (I got the small in neon blue). But. It's made from polyester and I knew that before I bought it but hoped it would still be OK and it wasn't. The material just doesn't breathe so I felt and smelled like I needed a shower after aboyt 3 hours of wearing it. I'm hoping that upgrading my anti-perspirant will mean I can wear this shirt for a whole day! So I'm going to save up for a silk shirt now!

I bought this shirt in the red stripe at the same time I bought the exact same shirt in neon blue (no stripes). The neon blue one (size S) fitted like a dream (I'm 5'8" and 140 lb) which I was pleasantly suprised with as I have quite wide shoulders and a small waist. BUT. The red and white striped one must have been fautly as it would sit on me all twisted. Everytime I straightened it, it would move back. It would pull under one armpit and the buttons hung on the diagonal. Good on Shopbop for their customer service though as it's being refunded. I don't know if this fault is the same for all of the red and white shirt or not and I won't be. I've decided to save up for a silk one!

Great little top
This is a great example of a nicely executed basic. I like fitted clothes and the reveiws of this top gave me hope it would be and it is. I'm 5'8" and 140 lb but I have a small waist for the rest of me so finding clothes that define my waist can be challenge. I ordered the medium of this and it is a perfect fit. I'll be getting the white too! Take note Shopbop! More fitted clothes please - most t-shirts on your website are shapeless!

Cute but not for those who like shape
First time ordering from this site so I'm expecting to take some time to learn the sizing (I live in New Zealand so sizing a bit different). I'm 5'8" and 140 lb so expected the medium to be the right size but it's way too big in the body and across the shoulders for me. This is no mean feat as I am broad shouldered. The style is a boxy shape so there is no waist definition. If you are after something slouchy and shapeless then this is for you (not me). It isn't as shaped as as it appears in the photo. I'm still tossing up if I try the small or not. The other top I ordered (Splendid Henly in a M) fits like a dream - it's described as a slim fit. I'll update the review if I get the small.
