Classic, runs small
I'm disappointed this shirt fits way too small. It's the same size I usually get in knits but I guess in a non-knit fabric I need a larger size. The fabric is nice and soft. I look forward to either wearing it when I lose weight or giving it to someone else - it's a very pretty, classic look and nicely made.
Would buy again
Great casual shirt
I would NOT buy this shirt again.
from Northern Illinois
I have 15 year old tops that look better than this one when it came out of the dryer. Ironing was almost impossible I ironed one area and went to iron the next area and the first section wrinkled. I would return them but unfortunately I washed so I cannot ask for a refund.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Classic Dresser
Very disappointed in the irregular sizing. Same shirt but in a different color - and it is much much smaller. They shrink when washed. Extremely wrinkled. Very very poor quality lately in the Kate Shirt.
I was excited to get these shirts...but the "long sleeves" are TOO short! I'm not happy with my purchase.
Crisp clean neat

Tight around the arms..color is the only nice thing..waste!
By Glenda in Stone Mountain
The short sleeves are tight around the band. Why should that be tight? My arms are normal/average. Their products always look better in the magazine!
I would NEVER buy this and wish I could have sent it back!!!
Had I not worn it and washed it I would have sent it back! The color was the ONLY good thing about this shirt!!! Even on sale it's a waste of money!!
Size is not true
Your clothes are no longer in fashion. They are out of date and not very flattering at all.
Wish I had read recent reviews first
By Karen M.
from Otis, OR
I've purchased the "Kate" shirts many times and was quite happy, so didn't think to read fabric content or recent reviews before purchasing this time. Previously purchased shirts (40% poly/60% cotton) wash and wear beautifully thought the colors have faded a bit over time. For years, I've taken these shirts on trips, folded and smashed in a suitcase; I simply shake them out at my destination and wear. This most recent purchase looked similar coming out of the package and the colors were great, so I washed them as usual to get ready to wear for work next week. Pulled them immediately from the drier cycle and found both to be wrinkled all over. It was only then that I realized the fabric content was 100% cotton rather than the cotton/poly blend that was expected. I have no time nor desire to iron these in an attempt to make them wearable, so have already hung them to the back of the closet. I'm very disappointed.
Love these shirts! Would but again!
from Westfield, IN
These are well made crisp cotton shirts with a flattering fit. I wear them often with skirts or pants. Be aware the shirts do need to be ironed to look their best.
I like it very comfortable.

Love your clothes
By Kathy Cassidy
from Calabasas ,Ca
Love the size the comfort fit of the clones
I would not buy again.
No I did not return not worth it. I have to pay for postage and refund not worth it.
Nice style, but Dries quite wrinkled
from Ft. Myers FL
style and fit great, wrinkles a lot
I would not buy this product again, poor quality
from Peoria, IL
Sleeves feel tighter than other brands in the same size. Material feels scratchy and not soft like I like cotton to feel.
Been purchasing for 20yrs
This is not my go-to shirt for jeans anymore. It's now about 2"shorter. The sleeves aren't long but not 3/4 either and instead of taking it out of dryer and being able to put it on a hanger and wear ....it needs to be ironed. Don't know who decided to mess with an icon but after 20yrs of buying I'm done.
Nice and comfortable!

Return to a cotton/polyester blend!
By Uneek Gique
I have purchased your "Kate" shirts for years. They were fantastic until you switched the fabric used from a cotton/polyester blend to 100% cotton. The weave was tight, resulting in a smooth, comfortable fabric. Now? The 100% cotton fabric used seems flimsy and--worst of all--wrinkles outrageously when washed/dried. I have neither the time nor desire to ìron blouses intended for casual wear.
Not What I Expected
This top was poorly made. The darts aren't in the right places and it ran small.
Returned. too tight shoulders. too loose hips.
poor fitting; not well designed
I wouldn't buy again
The color was good
from Henderson, NV
Gorgeous button up. I love it. It does wrinkle easy but I am okay with that. Would buy this again!
By The one with a wrinkled shirt
Very Disappointing!! I have bought Kate shirts for years, but the ones I just purchased wrinkle, even if you iron it, it wrinkles while wearing it. They changed the material, the sizing, and the style, very disappointed! Aren't we suppose to be excited with buying new clothes?? Not with this wrinkled shirt! Can we have the old Kate shirt back please??
Collar far too big.
from Seattle, WA
Ordered two sizes to get a good fit. The larger fits better in the usual places, but in both sizes, the collar is so big that even when buttoned, there are 6 inches between my neck and the top button! Tried popping the collar, adjusting it to work with a vest... no go. Sloppy-looking is putting it nicely.This is a problem I find with most budget plus-size apparel - as the bust and torso measurements get wider, so do shoulder seams and collars. Sorry guys, but that's not how it works. Just because we need a larger size to accommodate chest, torso, and upper arm, doesn't mean our necks and shoulders grow to viking proportions.
By DONT HAVE ONE
from YUCAIPA ,CALIF
HAVE BEEN BUYING CLOTHES FROM ROAMANS FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE ALWAYS BOUGHT THE SAM SIZE AND EVERYTHING HAS ALWAYS FIT WELL. THIS TIME THEY ARE TOO SMALL AND VERY SNUG AND UNCOMFORTABLE. WILL BE RETURNING.
Not what I expected
By Hate to iron
from Kansas City, MO
I have several Kate shirts. The fabric is usually easy to wash and wear. This shirt is not up to par with my others.
I like the shirt, however, it has to be ironed each time
from port charlotte, fl
As I said before, this product requires ironing to look nice and I only iron if I have to.
