Perfect fit

I tried this vest on without a shirt and thought, wow, this will look good even in spring/summer. For now, it's a top layer with long sleeves but I see it having super versatility for all seasons. It's soft too!

Unique and versatile!

Love this piece! I wear it alone, or layered over a close fit turtleneck or crew neck. I’ve also worn it over a t-shirt!
I’ve worn it with leggings and also with jeans or slim fit pants.

fabric unravels along bottom seam

It's a loose fit - but it looks nice for work, and on the weekend for causal looks. Unfortunately, the fabric unravels along the seams at the bottom of the shirt. After the first wash, fabric threads now dangle down beyond the bottom of the top, and look sloppy; and now the fabric is starting to unravel a bit along that bottom seam. I wash on delicate and hang to dry - for an expensive top it's not living up to a sustainable and long term investment.
