BENJAMINA BUTTON SHORT SLEEVE
Let's reinvent the button up! Let's do it with one of our faves, a fabric that's ultra lightweight, slightly stretchy, never wrinkles, and comes out of the wash flawless (thank you Breeze Woven). Then let's give it some business time style, with a classic collar, custom Oiselle buttons, and a relaxed, just-slightly-cropped fit. Last but not least, bring on the prints!
- Breeze Woven fabric (polyester / spandex)
- button down front
- two front chest pockets
- 22.5" body length (size 4)
I want it in all colors. Absolutely love it. So comfy and stylish. Size 8 worked well for me- 5”10, 140 lbs. I wear it biking, running, work, post swim. This will be my go to shirt all summer long.
I got this in the Coco Tiger print and oh my gosh I LOVE it. I wear it when I need a boost, and it's my go-to for post-race parties (especially on warm and sunny days). Plus my chiro says it's the "softest thing anyone has ever worn" in her office and requested I wear it to all my appointments. 5 stars, all around!
I love the shirt, but it needs an extra snap to prevent boob gap. I am 5'7", 150, 36B, and I bought a 6 (same size as my other Oiselle shirts). I did not want to have to try exchanging for other sizes and potentially having it fit right in the button closure but not elsewhere, so I decided to just return.
For work, walk, run and lounge, Benjamina is for ME and for YOU. I am a picky fabric and fit - and pattern - person. I really am. I wish I wasn't but now that I have finally found this Benjamina collection I can emerge from the dark pits of wardrobe despair and say THIS IS IT! It is breathable but not "sticky", it is stylish and has a nice collegial fit without feeling or looking stuffy, it can be washed and hung to dry - and springs back to "original form" quickly and completely. No ironing needed! The colors are vibrant and each so unique that I have decide this is the style I will splurge on all designs each season. Go Benjamina!
Ended up loving this shirt even more in person- I struggle to find clothes that I can both wear to work and feel very comfortable in. I thought this shirt could pass as semi-professional, so I thought I'd give it a try... and so glad I did!
I'm a very hot-blooded person that sweats a lot, and clothes for work are difficult since I have broad shoulders and arms from swimming. I was pessimistic about ordering this top, but the fabric is SO LIGHT, and I cannot wait to wear this in the summer. It also has a lot more stretch, so it is never tight in my arms or shoulders. The print is funky and colorful (I ordered the botanical print), and I love the square button detail. I can totally see wearing this running or exercising, although I'm not sure how the collar would feel!
Sizing reference: normally 140 lbs, 5'6", typically wear size 6 in Oiselle. True to size- the 6 fits perfect. Slightly boxy/short fit, but not cropped.
I adore this shirt. It's become my go to trail running shirt. The fabric is unbelievably light and the loose fit of the shirt allows for an incredible breeze while running. I have the shirt in botanicle and love it so much I just ordered the green leaf. I hope Oiselle continues to make this shirt and introduces even more patterns.
Perfect shirt for trail running and biking. It’s flowy and light. If you run super fast it kinda blows open and you get some tummy draft which is wonderful. Not too short for wearing on a mountain bike with regular shorts. And oh how it breathes!!! I’d love to see this in some plaid patterns.
I really struggle to find button up shirts that are not too boxy, AND can button up over my chest without leaving gaping between the buttons. I am so happy with this top - it looks great buttoned and unbuttoned, and is super lightweight. I wear it all summer!
