This was my first purchase of butterknit and I was very pleased.Haven't worn them yet,but did try them on.The fit is spot on,not too loose and not too tight.Will be ordering more of these as soon as the colors come back in small.Great basic can be dressed up or down.
Long Sleeve T-Shirt
I'm 5'6" & small frame. I ordered XS as I always do. A darling top, I like the fabric but the sleeve's are extremely TOO long and extremely large in the diameter. Sleeve's belong to a size 14...Something is wrong...I AM NOT PAYING TO RETURN THIS FLAWED TOP...they screwed up big time on the sleeve's. Other than that it would have been a nice top.
(btw, I have always ordered XS in Susan's Graver's tops) I'm not sure if a smaller size would help if they oversized the sleeves...IT'S AWFUL FITING. Sorry.
Not Good For Me
I ordered an XL and the sleeves were at least 3" too long and I wasn't fond of the butterknit fabric. I've looked for a white long sleeved top for months and was excited about receiving this shirt but don't want to spend more money to have it altered. Back it goes.
I am so very disappointed with Susan Graver's sizing. I received 2 of these today. Both were to big and I don't know who the sleeves were made for. Way to long. The cranberry was bigger than the black. I went strictly by the size chart for this particular item. Liked the feel of the butterknit and the colors but that's about it. I have ordered several Susan Graver items over time and have had to return them all except one due to sizing. The cost is just to much to receive and return. I love Denim & Co. Guess I will stick with them and I have one of Isaac's tops ordered to give his clothing a try. Also, Susan's tops are so long and I like a shorter top. They are much more flattering.
Sleeves are too long
I am 5'8" - most would consider this at least average height. The sleeves come down half way across the palm of my hand. Everything else about the top is fine but it has to go back. Sorry I didn't listen to the other reviews. I have other tops by Susan - this is the only one with the sleeve problem.
Order a size down if you are under 5'4"
I just received this shirt in black size med, I am 5'4, 140lbs, 36 c and i usually order a size med but this shirt was long in the sleeves and came off the shoulders slightly. Was going to try a size small to compare them. The material was light yet warm for these October nights.
Arms for apes!
I liked the fit and the fabric in the butterknit, The colors were great too. It is a great top for layering under a sweater in the winter. My problem was that in the plus size the sleeves were three inches too long! Are we apes? It is now costing me money to shorten the sleeves!
I am very happy with this T-shirt. It fits true to size and the fabric is very comfortable to wear. I ordered the caramel color which is beautiful for the fall. The sleeves are a little long for me but I can hem them. Great top and I will be back for more colors.
Butterknit Long sleeve T- Shirt
Since it has long sleeves I haven't worn it yet. However, I did try it on as I do everything I purchase. The fit is great. I sized down because on the other essentials knit tops I have felt they run a little larger than most of Susan's tops. I'm very happy with the fit. I would recommend that if you are a petite that you size down as I have. The sleeve now are perfect.
Sleeves too long and sized too large
I ordered the size Medium. When I tried it on, it felt like at least a size larger and the sleeves were way too long. As another reviewer mentioned, the quality seemed cheap. The only thing I liked about it was the color (caramel). I returned it.
Sleeves too long
Ordered my usual XL size, but it was overall too big, especially the sleeves, they fell at least 2 inches past my finger tips. Hemming or rolling the sleeves was not a viable option so this t-shirt was returned.
