Loved my purchase
The material and finishing are superb. The burgundy color is nice and very elegant. My only suggestion is to provide another option for the cut, I find this style to be less feminine than I would prefer (too straight?). I can still style it though in several ways so it is definitely versatile. Their return and customer service was really amazing as well.
The product is great. The customer service is dreadful. Avoid, avoid, avoid!
I recommend you order via the Iconic if you want this product. I ordered two orders directly from the Fable and both were lost in the post. The customer service person sends placatory emails that never answer my questions or address the issues at hand (it's as though they don't read my emails). It is now over a month since I placed the orders (and around 20 emails later) and I have had to escalate my request for a refund to PayPal. Worst experience with customer service I have ever had.
exceptional customer service
I purchesed one of The Fable silk shirts. It arrived promptly, beautifully presented and I was delighted with the shirt. Sadly it was the largest size but did not fit me around the hips. i did use the measuring guide and thought it would fit.
So sadly I had to return it. The postal return was slow but eventually it reached The fable site and I was given my refund. At all times The Fable staff kept in touch.
I loved the feel and quality of this shirt, I am just sad I could nto keep it.
Have been looking for good quality at a reasonable price and am very pleased.
The silk is heavy and well constructed. I have been looking for a shirt like this for years. The colour is true and deep. Customer service is attentive. I will order again.
Superb cut shirt in quality fabric
Delighted with my Fable shirt. The cut and fabric is gorgeous and the colour a bit stronger than pictures (still rather lovely). I have recommended Fable shirts to friends. Customer service was outstanding as I needed to change size before order was dispatched - delivery was prompt. Excellent online shopping experience
Perfect shirt - extremely versatile
I absolutely adore the fabric and couldn't be happier with my new Emerald shirt. It is perfect for office wear or a night out. Really versatile and has a beautiful neckline.
I will be buying again in the future.
Received the shirt today Emerald and ordered an XXL. Its way too small, more like an L and the colour isn't emerald more like a teal blue. Fabric is gorgeous, but I would have expected more generous sizing for the price and really disappointed with the colour as I expected an emerald green as depicted in the picture.
Comes Apart At The Seams
I've bought several of these blouses and LOVE them, however after a few wears they are coming apart at the seams. Shoulder, wrist, under the arm. I've taken them to my tailor and repaired them but it keeps happening in new places. I've reached out to ask about this defect and have not received follow up.
Great blouse but buy at your own risk...Not a cheap throw away top
Not wrinkle resistant as advertised
The shirt fitted well although gaped slightly at the chest, but it was advertised as 'wrinkle resistant' yet was very wrinkly. For $175 I expected better, but it's more wrinkly than other shirts I've purchased for a much cheaper price. The shirt arrived wrinkly in its box, so I sought advice from The Fable who said washing it per care instructions (in the washing machine on hand wash setting and in a delicate bag, hanging it immediately after) should remedy the creases formed in transit. Doing this made it even more crinkly but no return was permitted. I would not recommend this product unless you want to invest in regularly dry cleaning your shirt.
Great product until you wash it. Dreadful customer service.
I have purchased 5 silk shirts from The Fable over the past 14 months and I am terribly disappointed with their customer service. The shirts fit beautifully, feel wonderful and look great. However, (WARNING!) when very carefully hand-washed following all instructions, the fabric still pulls and becomes threadbare. After being advised by The Fable that they wouldn't do anything about it, I returned 2 brand new unworn shirts. The care instructions do not work and they are simply too expensive for a shirt that can only be safely washed with dry cleaning. I am still chasing a full refund after more than two weeks. Sadly, I cannot recommend this business for their dreadful customer service.
Loving my Sailor Shirt Wardrobe Addition
I couldn't believe; 1) The shirt arriving so quickly to New Zealand 2) The shirt itself and 3) The follow up information regarding taking care of my silk treasure! Thank you thank thank you, Happy Sailor Rachel
Beautiful fabric and comfortable to wear. I have quite a few shirts from The Fable and love every one of them! Customer service is always excellent and it is so good to support an ethical business. I am a standard size 10 (NZ) and the small fits perfectly.
They under estimate women with curves
Shirt seemed okay, was quick delivery. Didn't fit at all. I don't know what shape they think XXXL is but it's probably about half what you'd expect. I would definitely say Asian sizing as opposed to American sizing. For nearly $180 non-sale price for a shirt I would expect to be able to just wear it straight away. Am sending for a refund, such a shame.
Very poor experience
Sizing is small and not shaped right for curvy women with a bigger bust. I have contacted customer service 4 times and am yet to receive a reply. Very disappointing for such an expensive product.
Great quality shirts, at reasonable prices
As a long time customer I’m happy to say this is a brand that consistently delivers. In terms of quality, shipping and the packaging, I’ve always had a positive experience with The Fable - and I’ve been buying their shirts for a number of years now. The prices are competitive when you consider the solid construction of the shirts. This brand does one thing and does it well.
Questions & Answers
Hi, please can you tell me how much this shirt wrinkles?
Some silk fabric gets very creased and others not at all
Hi Caroline, our shirts tend to wrinkle less and most customers find they don't need to iron them unless they want a very polished finish. Having said that though they are not completely wrinkle free. Hope that's helpful. :)
Hi Purchased a shirt online 15th April 21. Used Paypal & all gone through this end. Have had no communication back from Fable. Wondering whats going on Service not good.

1. Where is the shirt shipped from?
2. Where is the shirt made?
3. How long before I receive it?
I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Thanks.
