The Alexa Tee is a slightly cropped, crew neck tee, perfect to layer under sweaters and cardigans for the Fall and Winter. Great proportion for any bottom, including a wide-leg and easy to pair with voluminous cardigan, blazer or jacket. Great way to add a colour change around the neck with a sweater as well. This one is slightly cropped, so we need cropped tees under shorter sweaters! Proudly and ethically made in Nova Scotia, Canada in OEKO-Tex Standard 100, sustainable fabric.

I pretty much wear white tee shirts every day all year, and have purchased a ton (6-8?) of these because I love the cut, it's the perfect crop for high waisted bottoms, I love the softness of the fabric, and I love that the fabric is sufficiently opaque. I will likely buy more.
That said, the fabric has been rather fragile on certain tee shirts. One of my tops developed a small rip/tear over the right chest, 2 small holes on the back of the left sleeve, and a small gap in the seam. So that was frustrating given the cost, but the pros still outweigh the cons and will purchase more at the sale price, less likely to repurchase at the full price.
I was hesitant to purchase this t-shirt initially because it was so cropped, but sometimes you need a layering piece that doesn’t have too much ‘tuck’ (aka length). I purchased the XS as I previously purchased the L/S Boxy Tee in that same size. When I took it out of the box, I was shocked with how tiny it was but once on, it was perfect! I wear this under a one-piece jumpsuit with no puckering or extra gathering. Reference: 5’ 3” 118 pounds (59 yo) - and purchased an XS. Jenn; you really do know how to design a winning collection time and time again. Thank you!
Love the cropped length, not too short, just right. The width is perfect, not too relaxed. The cap sleeve is a cute feature too. I am a small in Twigg.
The round collar is not quite symmetrical. It’s not noticeable while wearing it. Overall, love the top.
Hope Jenn would consider a V-neck version ( love the V- neck style of the Sydney tees, very flattering) of this top and that ivory would be included among the colour selection. : )
The tee is thick enough to not show a bra, soft enough to make me swoon, and short enough to break up my short body and give me a sexy and cute silhouette!
