Fantastic quality

published

What started off as a bad experience due to some mess up with availability was really turned around by the Fable team. Prompt responses and communication, keen to make the customer happy. Speedy delivery. They did what they said they were going to do. I am absolutely delighted with quality of the fabric and craftsmanship of the shirt. The shirt is true to size but fitted, as mentioned on the website. I'll definitely be back for more. Great standard item in your corporate wardrobe! Highly recommend!

Big fan

I've been a customer of The Fable for years now. Love the quality, fit and range of the shirts. I travel a lot for work, and their versatility and durability are a godsend too. The Fable's ethical accreditations and care for the makers are also really important to me. Very excited to hear that silk camisoles are being released soon. Thanks for everything that you do Sophie!

Beautiful fitted silk shirts that wash really well too!

published

I love wearing these shirts so much that I've bought 8 in total. I love the tailored fit, that they tuck into skirts or pants to look really smart, and I can also wear them casually and going out. I tend to run hot, and love that because they're silk, I don't overheat in them and I can wear them in spring and autumn, not just winter. They wash really well in the machine (with no spin cycle and in a bag) and then dry without needing ironing when I put them on a hanger. The service has always been excellent also. I recommend The Fable highly. Amanda C

How good does it feel!!!!

published

How good is it to find an ethically made product that is as stunning in the flesh as it looks on the website? Congratulations to Jess and the Fable Team. Outstanding product, outstanding service and it feels so good to know it wasn't produced in a "sweat shop" that perpetuates a terrible cycle of poverty and makes life miserable for so many women and girls. Bravo! Big chains should take note.

Gorgeous, ethical shirts

published

Absolutely beautiful shirts, well-made and make me feel like a queen. The price tag means these are a commitment: they're something to be cared for and worn regularly, not just used and casually discarded. Gentle machine washing and drying on a hanger won't quite get all the wrinkles out, so be ready to run a gentle iron over them if that's something that bothers you. I'm big on ethical clothing, slow fashion, and natural fabrics, and these definitely tick my boxes. The only down side is that there are so many colours I'm tempted to buy rather more than I need.

Not iron free

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!

Cheryn

Cherynasked

Could you tell me the length of the shirt please

2 answers
Robyn S.
Robyn S.

Hi Cheryn. I would say the shirt is mid length. It is not long enough for me to wear out and for it to totally cover my rear if I am wearing trousers, it comes about half way down. It is perfect if tucked in because I can lift my arms overhead and it does not pull out. I hope this helps.

The Fable
Sophie D.The Fable

Hi Cheryn, most customers find the same as Robyn. The shirt is mid length. We have specific measurements available on our website.


Elle

Will you restock the Deep Sea shirt in M size again?
Is the Rose Quartz colour transparent, can you see the bra underneath? I can't really tell from the video and reviews have made me a bit concerned.
I've ordered forest green shirt in M and its perfect! I am keen to purchase more but don't want then to be transparent.
