  • I am so pleased with this shirt and will definitely be ordering a couple more as this is so useful as a base layer and I find it to be such good quality
  • I have not had this top for long and so I shall see how well it lasts before I would consider paying £50 for another one, but I do appreciate the quality
  • The style is what I think I would call a granddad-style top, with a scoop neck and a few buttons going down the front, something that your granddad might wear under his shirt for extra warmth
  • I have long arms and a long body (I am tall basically) and I love the way the sleeves come right down to my wrists on this top
  • I would recommend this top, especially now that it is on sale

      This is yet another of my recent purchases from Howies online clothing store, specialising in organic, comfortable, casual clothing. I am so pleased with this shirt and will definitely be ordering a couple more as this is so useful as a base layer and I find it to be such good quality. It would be pretty expensive at full price, which is £50 actually, but I must say that the quality is brilliant. I did not pay that much for it as at the moment it is on sale for only £19 which is excellent value for money. I have not had this top for long and so I shall see how well it lasts before I would consider paying £50 for another

      one, but I do appreciate the quality.

      This is a fitted, ribbed top in fine, 100% Merino wool, not cotton as you might expect. The style is what I think I would call a granddad-style top, with a scoop neck and a few buttons going down the front, something that your granddad might wear under his shirt for extra warmth. This is a slim-fit top is these kind of tops usually are but I can say that the fit is loose enough to be comfortable. I need either a generous size UK 12 or a small UK 14 to fit my large frame and the size 12 in this top is perfect for me, so it is a nice generous fit. It is a ...


      • slim enough fit to work well as a base layer under my Howies sweatshirt for example, but I could also wear it on its own as it looks pretty attractive. I have long arms and a long body (I am tall basically) and I love the way the sleeves come right down to my wrists on this top. It is a good long length too and the hems ends at a flattering point on my hips, so you can see the top under any layer I put over it.

        When I took the top out of its packaging I was instantly impressed with the feel of quality the material has and also the finish on the hems. It feels like soft cotton I suppose, not

        like you would imagine wool to feel, but the top does provide warmth and so makes a good base layer in this current cold weather. It is finished off very well with good stitching and the cut of it is a flattering fit. I have washed this a few times on 40 degrees and it washes very well and perfectly retains its shape. This gives me confidence that this top is actually going to last me well.

        I would recommend this top, especially now that it is on sale. I chose the cream colour just to try one out but there is also pale pink, dark brown and a black and white striped one to choose from. This is another good product from Howies I think.
