Color Not as Described

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I ended up purchasing the Octane color recently and the color on the site is really off. It's not a deep burnt orange, its a much more vivid orange which looks hideous on my skin tone, but it would look cute on the right person.

I really wanted to like this shirt. The merino blend is soft to the touch, and as Reed mentioned below, the asymmetrical hem and detailing are beautiful. However, when I took it out of the bag to try it on, I was pretty disappointed with the fit. I'm normally between a small and a medium, though I lean more toward the small end of the spectrum (as I have a 34" chest). I purchased a small and thought the length was great. The shirt also fit my shoulders well, but I felt the cut was waaaaay off for my body type. It was perfect at the hips but cut in too far at the waist, then ended up ballooning out around my armpits...just a funky fit all around.

THE TAKEAWAY: beautiful shirt, but it wasn't meant to be for me. If you're a petite woman with a smaller bust, this shirt likely isn't a great choice. Otherwise, the quality and style are great.

Probably One of My Favorite Shirts

The details of this shirt really take it to the next level. The asymmetrical hem is very visually interesting and I LOVE the keyhole back. If you have nice back muscles from rock climbing you need to own this shirt. If you plan on wearing this shirt bouldering you should know that the lightness of the fabric+ the relaxed fit means the shirt will fly up a little and expose your lower back/stomach when you fall. The fabric is a nice soft blend that resists odor (I've been told I smell like onions and old Italian food so this shirt is a real home run!)
