I also purchased this shirt in the Caroline print, which is uniquely beautiful! With that one, I can look past the too-oversizedness because the print is stunning. I like this one too (cameo) - the color is on point for spring/summer, and the material (same as the printed version) is fantastic. It's weighty and substantial. I like that the solid version has pockets in the front. It is large throughout the body and a bit long for someone as petite as I am (I bought XXS, am 5'1" and 105 lbs). The sleeve were more fitted than I expected - they fit me fine, but I think they look more loose in the picture. This is a great shirt! I think the Caroline print is worth the money, but this one is a little more bland and perhaps not worth $150. I got a discount so I'll be keeping it.
My favorite things about this top are the quality/blend of the material and the print. The print is self-explanatory - just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. But the material is even better in person; the linen/tencel blend is weighty and substantial but breezy. I will say that this shirt is quite baggy throughout the body - I am a true XXS and the shoulders and sleeves fit perfectly, but it is quite long on me (I am 5'1") and somewhat hard to tuck seamlessly into high-waisted pants. Wearing it untucked is a bit ridiculous on someone with my frame, but obviously looks great on taller folks. I'm not sure if this shirt is worth $150, but I did get a bit of a discount and am happy with it. I'm also really pleased that the Caroline print version does not have front pockets like the other box tops - I think it would detract from the print.
I've never purchased from Tradlands and decided to go in on this top as my first buy from the brand. Sadly, I think it will be my last. The quality of the fabric is lovely, but the Caroline Print version of this top came stained BOTH times I ordered it, straight out of the plastic. The first version of the top came with very small purple splatter-like stains so I reached out to customer service. The exchange was easy and I received my second top today. This one had two stains on the front. I understand things happen in production that are one-offs, but I've never received a brand new pre-stained item from a retailer, let alone twice in a row. I'd reach out to customer service again, but at this point my size is out of stock and I'm stuck with this one. I'm hoping someone from Tradlands will see this and get their manufacturing in check. I'd expect quality control issues like this from fast fashion brands, but not from a sustainable brand charging $150 for a shirt.
First off, I am OBSESSED with this print, and hope to goodness the dress comes back and I can snag one. Second, this top is the same Tradlands quality you can expect in all that they do -- wonderful material, great construction, THIS PRINT!!!. But I find the sleeves on the box tops to be consistently a tiny bit snug, and it looks like this season's offering has not improved that. It's bugged me enough in the past that I've returned them in the past. I have one I've kept from last season, the long sleeve in rust. And the tencel/linen blend on that one and this one are probably why I've kept that one and am keeping this one. I don't know for sure if they're different from the one I returned two seasons ago, but the overall flow and drape of both tops is such that I think they work, and the sleeves don't really LOOK too tight, or even feel restricting, just that I think it would look and feel better if they sleeves were ever so slightly looser. I would have thought it's just me, but looks like this is a consistent note on these tops, or at least not an anomaly. I ordered a medium and wouldn't want anything bigger anywhere else but ever-so-slightly in the arms. Keeping this top and going to definitely wear it a bunch -- the overall shape and, again, THIS PRINT! are so great, but hope they relax the sleeves FINALLY in this style in coming seasons.
Move over, every other short sleeve in my closet. This is my favorite piece! The denim is soft and has such a deep beautiful color to it. I love wearing it open with the Box top underneath or a cami, or closed and half-tucked. It's flattering, lightweight and just structured enough. Will be wearing this one all season!
