Not iron free

published

Great shirts - I bought two, but as other reviews have indicated they do not dry wrinkle free and still require ironing (and yes I did follow instructions provided by fable)

Silk that makes me feel like Kate Middleton!

published

Fable creates beautiful shirts for working girls like myself who need basic wardrobe staples. They come at a super affordable price with quality which is second to none! I am a very petite girl and while the shirt is slightly large, I can get away with the oversized look which looks super chic paired together with a pencil skirt! Can't wait to order my next colour! Keep up the good work team, you run a fabulous enterprise. PS: the packages arrive in a gorgeous pink box - so extra - made me feel special!

Classic silk shirts from classy label

published

I love the whole aesthetic of this label. From the easy site navigation, quality make and fabric, and ethical production values to the classy packaging. My parcel arrived promptly and I was delighted with the gorgeous packaging. And the enclosed colour chart with fabric samples is genius. I will be ordering more in the future. Cheers, The Fable.

Amazing Silk Shirts

published

The minute I opened my parcel from the Fable, I knew I was dealing with a company which values quality.
My silk shirt was beautifully stitched and carefully made. Within 24 hours I had ordered two more.
Fable Silk Shirts are fabulous.

I still have not received my shirt supposedly sent on 9/9. It is now 24/9. The tracking number provided tells me nothing. I have emailed the company, the owner herself, and messaged. I have had no reply. I can’t find a phone contact otherwise I would ring to find out what’s happening. This forum seems to be the only place you get a reply. Marion

These shirts are very high quality and well finished. The silk is clearly the kind that has lasted me years and years before, so I’m really excited these can be my new work staple x

Next-level quality

published

Refined, ultra-soft, exquisite. My Fable shirt is a step-up from the washable silk one I bought from Country Road recently. While that's still lovely, I really regret not shopping from Fable sooner. I'm normally 12/14, but sized up to a 16 in Fable and it drapes really nicely, with minimal gaping across the bust. Egyptian Sands is a lovely champagne colour. A luxurious experience all round.

Beautiful Quality and shopping experience

published

I love to wear silk items in summer and struggle to find any silk in Aus. I have just received my first Fable Tee and WOW . The packaging and attention to detail is a stand out , Like a gift to myself. I am very happy with the quality and will now buy more T'ees. So handy ! Plus they last so much longer than a regular T'shirt. Worth the investment.
Would love to see a Sleeveless shirt dress added to the range...
Thanks Team Fable, just beautiful.

Unbelievable shirts!

published

I ordered two shirts - plain black and plain white. Both are the most incredible silk shirts I have ever owned.

Not only are they incredibly soft and beautiful to wear, the way they were packaged was just divine. Fable have ticked every box and made sure no detail was spared. Can’t wait to add more to my collection! Well done xxx

Happy Shirt Owner!

published

I’m not normally one to buy button up shirts because I have a small frame but large bust so they are either too tight across the bust or too loose elsewhere! These are perfect! I love the fabric as well as the fit and how I can transition them into an evening look from a day business one. I’ve just recently ordered my fourth. Can’t wait to receive it!

Just bought my 5th shirt. I love them!

published

Can I just say how awesome it is to find a shirt that I don't have to iron? That was the major selling point for me. Plus they are natural fibres so breathable, and warm in winter. Yes, they are expensive but due to the quality they will last a while - if you wear it once a week for just a year the cost per wear is only $2.88. The packaging is gorgeous and makes you feel really special. Beware! You won't be able to stop at one! :)

Thank you for sharing this review Michelle. We're delighted to hear you're enjoying your shirt and getting many wears out of it. That's exactly what we want as "cost per wear" is important to us :)


Classically Chic

I was so delighted with the quality and styling of The Fable silk T-Shirts I ordered a further 2 T-Shirts and a Shirt immediately.
The T-Shirts will be ideal to wear under my business suits this summer. As a professional middle aged woman all I can say is praise be the sleeve!

Fabulous! We're delighted to hear this feedback. Thank you for sharing Simone. Our range was originally designed for professional women looking for nice workwear options and it sounds like you've found that in our shirts and t-shirts. Enjoy :)

Brilliant Shirt, love it.

published

I love my fable shirt. I have a blue steel, forest. It fits like a dream and looks like a million dollars. Yes, it does gape slightly, but I am small breasted, so issue is not too bad. Yeah, the hand washing in cold water is a drag, but to look good in a few seconds and arrive at work comfortable all day - or wear out at night - the cut and style are perfect. All I would like are a few more colour choices. I ordered my next silk shirt from Gorman as I was looking for a colour range. Will get more from the Fable though.

Not Impressed

Not impressed, this shirt is as hard to maintain as my other silk shirts. I really expected something different that would change my mind about silk shirts. I'm not convinced to get another one.

Hi Sophie,
I’ve done exactly that and it’s not really true that the shirt dries with minimal creases. It needs ironing no matter what. Also it’s the only shirt I have problems with sweating stains. Honestly I regret buying it.


No Value for Money

published

Very wrinkley. White marks under arms first wear. Very disappointed.
Can see through gap between buttonholes.
After reading such good reviews, I wanted to love this brand, but I think I've wasted my money. Won't buy again.

Amazing product and great custome rservice

published

I have received a few of these shirts now and are absolutely thrilled with the quality of the shirts and the great customer service. Would be a beautiful gift to send someone as the packaging is lovely and the shirts amazing. I also mistakenly ordered a wrong size and as soon as I contacted them was sent the correct size before I even returned the one I'd ordered. Very happy and would highly recommend these shirts for quality, value and service.

Hi Marie,

Our Forest shade you're referring to is out of stock at the moment but will be replenished in a few days.

Lizasked

Can you add a function to your website “notify me when this size is in”. I have seen this on other websites when you really like something but it’s not in your size. I am unlikely to keep checking after a couple of weeks as I’ll just forget. The alternative is to have a back order function. I would order today if I could do that.
