Â by asta17 Had this top been in the $60-80 range, I would have brought it home with me. It fits just like the Tarpan Buttondown, but the fabric feels a little thicker and sturdier. I tried the 0 and it's nearly a perfect fit, rare for me with buttondowns (5'1, 32A, 105 lbs). Bustier ladies or those with wider shoulders might want to size up as there is little stretch in the fabric. The eyelet is adorable, and the green/purple combo keeps it from being too summery. The yellow/pink combo is also really cute, but I fear I'd be limited to fewer seasons given the combination of the color and the eyelet. But $100 is just too much for what it is, so I'll probably wait for sale on this one.

Â by Kyasurin Bought all 3 colours.
It's hard for me to find buttondowns that fit well(it's also hard for me to find blazers that fit well). In a lot of cases the sleeves are not long enough because I'm 5'8" but wear a size 0(and often the smaller sizes are shorter in sleeve length and body length). Although the body length of this shirt would still be better for me if it were a little longer(although it's still alright), the sleeve length is perfect and since most buttondowns still don't fit me this well, I decided to get all 3 colours. At $29.95 each they were a great price(3 for less than the price of 1 at full price). It didn't come in a 4th colour did it?
Anyway, I am 5'8", 100 pounds, small chest(A size - about 32 inches around at widest point with bra on), 24 inch waist, 32 inch hips, really skinny arms, and purchased size 0. I can see how having pretty much any muscle mass on your arms would be likely enough to require you to size up at least 1 size. I suffered a bad arm injury as a child and it's hard for me to gain muscle mass, especially on my arms.
The shirt isn't either too tight on me or too loose and I am able to wear a lightweight shirt underneath(which allows for nice layering with another colour showing through the openings in the embroidery).
I think the quality is pretty good although I did take one star off because there was a small hole in the shoulder on one of the shirts I got near part of the embroidery and some of the embroidery was also unraveled. I managed to fix the unraveled embroidery with a needle myself but I'm not sure about the little hole. I might have to take it to a seamstress, although the hole isn't that obvious and isn't in a location where it's likely to get any bigger.....although it will be annoying to monitor it and keep checking it to make sure it's not getting bigger so maybe I should just have it fixed so I don't have to worry. Due to the busy pattern of the shirt I don't think any fix-ups to it will be very obvious to anyone.
All 3 colours are beautiful and different enough from each other. I love how the Copper colour has stripes down the material where as the Yellow one has a checkered pattern and the Green one(I'm guessing it was called Green online) has a checkered pattern but a smaller checkered pattern than the Yellow one. I'll attach a picture of the up-close patterns/colours of the 3 shirts, especially since I see that one of the colours is no longer available online at this time but you might still be able to locate it in a store location somewhere.

I really like this top. I think the eyelet is what gives this top a great touch. I purchased the top in yellow and its nice color. I think it is perfect to wear when you are dressing down this spring. It is comfortable and the fabric is a nice quality. I ordered a size 8 and it is a little big, but not bulky or unflattering. I think a 6 may have been too snug for me. I can never tell with Anthropologie clothes. I have purchased some small size tops and they fit perfect and at other times have had to size up with button downs because of my chest which is a 34C. I have an athletic build, 5'5, 137 just to give an idea of how the top may fit someone else.
