Rated 3 out of 5 by pittchick4676 Disappointing Quality
I love my J Crew Painter tees from last season and was excited to pick up this version. I was disappointed both with the fit and the quality...I ordered an XS, my normal size, and this tee was too big! It was too long, too wide, and the arms were very long, covering my hand when the sleeves were down all the way. Unlike my other painter tees, this one is really thin and flimsy...I ordered the white with the bronze stripes and even my nude bra was visible. I also found the zippers to be a bit annoying, my hair got caught in the teeth (not a problem I've ever had with similar, zipped shoulder styles) and they were itchy as well. Overall not impressed and returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anne50 variation of a classic
I ordered this in a size up since the recent painter tees seem to be running tighter than in the past, and they seem to be more prone to shrinkage. Have the off- white/navy stripe, and appreciate that the stripes are knit in, not printed. The sleeves are too long, but I often wear pushed up anyway. Shoulder zips are fun detail, but could see how some might find them uncomfortable as they lay directly on skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stripelover perfect for fall weather
I have been a fan of the painter tee for a few years now. The sizing runs a bit large so the medium which I usually wear is a little loose but I actually like it like that because the top pairs very well with skinny jeans. The fit is flattering, not boxy at all. I would say the top is not completely crewneck, perhaps a hybrid of a crewneck and a boatneck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jcrewjunkie Great fall transition piece
Love the classic look of the ivory/navy stripe with the twist of the zipper detail on the shoulder! The sleeves are a bit long, but I like the look - I think it helps elongate the arm. My sizing in JCrew shirts can vary between an xs and small - I went with the small for the better fit. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeloJ Another Excellent J.Crew Purchase
I am usually a size 4/small and this top was true to size. The fabric is super soft and comfortable and the shoulder zippers give it a little something extra. I am extremely pleased with this purchase.
