Women's Slouchy Linen Tee
I love linen T's...
This tee is typically linen as it is being used in the new knit linen shirts. It's thin and dry-feeling and really nice, but if you're not expecting that, you may be surprised. It's definitely not cotton or rayon or anything remotely like them. It doesn't stick to you if you get sweaty, and it falls very nicely around your body. I saw another review that was complaining of characteristics that are typically linen, so that person didn't realize what it was going to be like. This shirt is a very useful addition to anybody's wardrobe, under, over, or alone, and I would definitely recommend it. Super versatile, comfortable, and luxurious. Get it on sale now.

Slouchy yet elegant... but a little see-through
I love this slouchy linen tee, and because I got it in a nice deep red color, it's been great for the holidays. It is absolutely slouchy, yet still dresses up well. My only word of warning would be that I always make sure to wear a little tank top or something underneath it, because it's a little bit on the sheer side.

Linen jersey makes all the difference in what is essentially an oversized t-shirt. Its drape and slubby texture balance out the 1980s-scaled slouchy cut.

Casual but Nice
I like this top enough that I bought it in a second color (wine and navy). Agree with the other reviewers that the material is thin; I'm okay in wearing a cami underneath. I like the linen; the color has depth, It's a top that can be worn casual or dressed up a bit with a casual scarf or necklace. On the down side, the sleeves (which are a nice 3/4 length) aren't hemmed under but have a finished edge that is tacked up (to create a small cuff). This seems a little "cheap" to me but I get that this is LE's casual, youthful line. And, to be honest, I bought these tops on sale. I think the regular price is too high for the item. Overall though, on sale, it's a great top. Finally, note that sizing in the Canvas line differs; items are generally smaller.

I like the slouchy fit and the material

Cute, Comfortable, Good Quality -- a bit figure-dependent, though
I like the top alright, the fabric was decent, it was comfortable. I think it will be cute on most people, but I didn't end up keeping it for a couple reasons.
Mostly, it was too bra specific -- i.e. because of the necessity of wearing the same color bra so it wouldn't show through, and because of the drape of the linen, I only had one or two bras that would work with it and still look flattering (on me). With certain bras, the drape of this top's fabric can make you look flatter; and with other bras, the fabric may drape "between", a look which you may or may not like :)
(The description does recommend wearing a tank underneath; I just didn't want to because I get too warm that way.) So, for me, it wouldn't have seen much use.
Which leads me to the second reason -- it cost too much for the limited use I would've gotten from it.
But, as I said, it is a cute top and I think it will work for most people better than it did for my figure.

to this t shirt. I have a 32C top and the small was a little loose. I prefer the looser fit so I'm going to keep it, probably get another color down the line. Size down if you want a closer to the body silhouette.
I didn't have a problem with show through, but maybe my skin tone is closer to the color of the top.

I ordered this shirt in the merlot color- the fit is ok. A bit loose in the neckline. The shirt was completely see through; no way to wear it without something underneath- I could actually see skin. The material feels like polyester vs cotton or linen. Really disappointed because it looked great in the photo.
