Rated 5 out of 5 by EB53 Love Bees, and will collect every thing I can find
I bought last year's Bee T. Love it. I kind of wish it wasn't a linen shirt, a bit harder to care for, delicate wash and flat dry. I'm lazy and would rather throw it in the wash and then the dryer - but if you do that with this shirt, you ruin it. (learned my lesson the expensive way) All that said, this year's design is beyond beautiful. Very sophisticated, nicer than last year's version. The colors are great, and I like that it's an off white shirt. Fit is bigger...I take a Medium everywhere else, but a small at JCrew.
Saw the shirt appear on line last night and rushed to the store at 10 to buy mine. Have to say, lots of interest in the T - I'm guessing JCrew will sell out in no time!
It's great that half of the proceeds go back to a society (Xerces) to protect/save our bees...I love that my purchase is for the Good! Thanks JCrew!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Karen VERY sheer
I love the graphic and the message, but even while still folded I could see through both layers. In a thicker fabric, I'd keep this in a heartbeat, but no way is this sheer top right for me. So be prepared to wear layers or be seen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SashasMum Save The Bees Tee
Thrilled to finally see this tee available to purchase online. Great message about our bees.
Love the breathable fabric (all linen) but am tired (so tired) of the ivory color. White tees look so much more stunning with graphics and details on them, like our bees. Ivory looks washed out, almost dingy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anne50 bees, please!
I missed out on last year's "save the bees" tee in my size, so I wanted to order this early. I did prefer last year's grey color, but this shirt has lovely watercolor images of bees that need a light background (still, a very pale blue might have been even prettier!). The linen is very sheer, especially in the off-white – I would have appreciated a heavier weight fabric. Seems true to fit, slightly relaxed. So far no apparent shrinkage after washing, will have to see about durability over time. Glad that a significant portion of the price goes to a good cause!

Please learn all you can about bees. They pollenate the crops! If you want organic food..............YOU NEED BEES!
The shirt is really cool. It's completely see-through, hence the 3 stars for quality, so it must be layered. I still give 5 stars overall just for the bees.
My 12 yr. son is scared of bumble bees. I garden, and am around them all the time. If you're still, they'll buzz around you, but they won't hurt you. They're only interested in nectar. My son knows this, but is still scared, same as most adults. It's an irrational fear.
