Best silk shirt I've found
The shirts are great quality and fit. Very comfortable and wrinkle free!
I would love to see some more colours though - red/green/lilac/mustard etc.
If this was the case, I would definitely buy more.
I am very happy with my new shirt I expect it will get plenty of wear. Good quality fabric and well made. Prompt service as I needed to exchange for a different size and received the new shirt within a few days. Beautifully packaged. Will consider other colours for future wear.
Efficient and friendly service, lovely shirt
The service and efficiency of The Fable are excellent. I got the wrong size and had a replacement within a couple of days, even before I sent the original shirt back. It was a very pleasant experience dealing with Jessica who treats the customer as a person, unlike some faceless on-line shopping sites. The colours are lovely and the shirt is good quality. I would certainly buy more of these shirts. I got mine on sale, so it was excellent value.
Beautiful fabric, classic style, great service
Crepe de chine is hard to find. I crushed the silk and it sprang back, crease free.
I followed the size chart but found I needed an XXL rather than the XL suggested. Lovely packing and presentation. The people at the Fable are a pleasure to deal with.
Beautiful, good quality shirts, great customer service
I received my royal blue and white shirts in the mail recently. The delivery was so quick! The shirts were beautifully packaged in a box, ready for gifting (even though I was just buying these for myself!). I love the attention to detail in the branding.
The shirts themselves are lovely. The feel of the silk fabric is smooth, and it’s weighty enough so that it doesn’t feel too delicate, but at the same time it feels light enough to be comfortable. The shirts are really easy to wear and don’t crease very much at all. I was able to wash the blue one on a delicate cycle in the washing machine in a wash bag, and wear it with no need to iron! If you are hand washing, gathering the fabric together to get rid of water can cause a bit of creasing so you maybe need to iron in that case.
I find the white shade to be quite sheer, but not enough to be annoying. Although The Fable suggests wearing a white bra, wearing a nude colour or even a grey one (depending on the shade of grey) can actually be less visible than a white bra because it’s closer to your skin colour and won’t contrast with it.
For the amount of money I paid for my shirts I am very happy with the quality and service of The Fable. I hope they continue to thrive as a business! :)
I have several of these fabulous silk shirts ,perfect for every occasion, casual or smart. There is a great selection of colours and they are so easy to care for
They have the added bonus of being very well priced and beautifully packaged and delivered
Hide them from your daughters (and your friends!)
Love love love these shirts but I struggle to keep them. My light-fingered daughter is always "borrowing" them and not quite returning them. Always such gorgeous colours and the fabric feels great even on the hottest days. They last really well and wash beautifully. I bought an expensive Equipment silk shirt (three times the price of The Fable ones!!) and the buttons were already loose before I even washed it for the first time. The Fable is much better quality stitching and fit, and never seems to lose its shape. Brilliant. value for such a brilliant product.
Fantastic Customer Service
I ordered a black S shirt in the Black Friday 40% off sale. The shirt was from The Fable's older range, and was lovely. Unfortunately, I had ordered the wrong size. I emailed customer service, and Jessica was very helpful in assisting me with my exchange. As The Fable had sold out of the XS in its older range, it exchanged my S shirt with an XS from their full price range - at no additional cost, and the shirt was sent out immediately. I was blown away with the level of customer service from The Fable - certainly exceeded my expectations.
Hints: I am a size 6-8, and the S was too big for me - even though I measured myself against the sizing chart. Perhaps size down if you are trying to decide between a XS and S. Having had the opportunity to try both old and new range shirts (old is Indian silk, new is Chinese silk), I have to agree that I preferred the Indian silk. However, I have worn my Chinese silk shirt twice now, and it sits beautifully. I am very happy with my purchase, and looking forward to the next sale so I can stock up!
Such a luxurious feel to wear. So pleased with the fabric & fit. Originally I ordered the wrong size, but absolutely hassle free to exchange. I will be purchasing more!
silk shirts just as nice as designer ones at fraction of the cost
I just received my black and white shirts today and Im super impressed. I hate collared shirts as I find them constricting so I only buy them in silk...but white silk shirts are expensive and dont last too long due to discolouration with deodorant. The Fable shirts are almost identical cut and fit to my high end designer one and the fabric is just as nice.
I read some reviews that the older fabric they used (creme de chiffon from India) was better than the new fabric (China Silk I believe) so the black version I got in the older fabric as it was on sale. They only had a small left so went one size up from normal xs in the black. From size perspective both the xs and small are fine, the small has slightly more relaxed look but the size differentiation is not huge that I would really notice the difference (and it's the type of cut and fabric that doesn't matter if it is a little looser due to fabric still providing shape and flow). Im not sure what the other reviewers felt about fabric and if they really compared them against each other...it does seem that the new fabric is better quality and has slightly silkier feeling to it (as the company has claimed - it also stresses they are made ethically which is also great). The older fabric is a little denser to the new fabric but new fabric feels much closer to my other silk products...nevertheless, both fabrics are really nice and not hugely different to each other (Im extremely finicky about fabric and have high standard, especially for silk - I actually shop mainly by running my hands down the rack and will only look at it if it feels nice to the touch). If I had it again, I would again choose to save the extra $40 by buying older version, one size up. However, will be just as happy wth product once they are full price and new fabric.
Finally I have found a silk white shirt that can be not too expensively replaced once my deodorant ruins it :)
Really great shirts and service.
Ordered from NZ. Delivery arrived within 3 days.
Shirts fit perfectly. I decided against one of the colours and sent this back for exchange. Communication and response has been excellent. Will definitely buy again.
I'm in love
I'm in love with my fable shirts! I've already bought a second and have my eyes on a third (and fourth). They are beautifully constructed and the fabric is lovely, nice and cool for the summer. I haven't washed mine yet but am impressed by the lack of crinkles when I found my shirt in a crumpled pile in the wash basket (thanks to my husband). Highly recommended!
The shirts were shipped the day after purchasing and arrived to me in NZ surprisingly fast. Jessica has also been really helpful via email for some questions I had.
Love being able to hand wash these gorgeous silk shirts
I bought two beautiful silk shirts and it is so great avoiding the cost and hassle of dry cleaning. I handwash them, hang on a coat hanger and actually don't even bother ironing as they look great. Love the packaging and free shipping.
Also nice getting the sample of other colours included in the box - that is why I bought the second one!
The perfect silk shirt.
I love The Fable silk shirts. Simple tailored design in a range of gorgeous colours and patterns. I have several now and enjoy dressing them up or down AND they’re great for traveling.
Really lovely classic cut silk shirt
I really enjoy my Fable shirts, I have several colours and regularly travel with them. They wash well and can be hung on a hanger to dry requiring very little ironing to finish. I often wear one with a pair of skinny jeans but they adapt easily to go under a smart blazer making them a great part of a travelling wardrobe. I'm loving my new stripe.
Beautifully cut shirts! On par with Equipment!
I love the cut of these shirts, they are so beautiful. I have been searching far and wide for a good silk shirt. So far the only one I've found is Equipment... Until now! I love these because you can wear it to work as well as casually/however you style it. The only thing with the equipment shirts is that I never found them to be polished enough for work. But these are.
Also, the sizing is great. I am a 34E, and usually I can't find any shirts that fit nicely... They either end up being too tight on the chest, or you feel like you're drowning in it if you size up for the chest.
These really are a great buy! The quality of the fabric is LOVELY! It feels amazing. It also wears really well during the day. It doesn't crease easily like others I've tried, and I washed mine and it doesn't really need an iron if you hang it up straight away. Maybe a super quick steam to make it look more polished.
Great shirt. I have the dalmatian. Lovely! Unfortunately the pure white was too sheer for my liking, but I'm keen to try some more colours.
Looking forward to some more colours!
Luxurious silk shirt
I recently received my first shirt and am very happy with the feel and quality. I ordered a medium, which is my normal size but had to exchange it for a large so the shirt sat comfortably across my hips. The shirt still looks good even though I had to go up a size. The exchange happened very easily thanks to Sophie. The packaging is very elegant and the speed of delivery is commendable. I had requested the colour swatches before I ordered so I could be certain I was happy with the colour before ordering. Commendations to Sophie on The Fable.
Love it. Look smart & great for people who don’t like ironing.
Love The Fable shirts. Definitely high quality, fit very well & all I have to do with mine is hang it to dry on a coat hanger and don’t have to iron - which is perfect working in an industry where I’m on camera. I purchased the Blue Royale in September.
Excellent service but please don't cut on quality
Received my shirt this week, which arrived super fast, thank you! The shirt fits well but the quality of silk is not the same as it used to be. I own a couple of shirts from older collections, which were made in India, and their quality is exceptional! The new one, which was made in China according to the label, is much thinner and creases easily. I washed it together with my old one and the old one came out silky smooth, almost dry and no creases. The new one felt stiff after washing and was badly creased. Please do not compromise on quality!
I have just received two beautiful shirts. Love them and will definitely buy more. They arrived in New Zealand in just a couple of days. Packaging is also great and well thought out.
