FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 64% Tencel / 36% Rayon

This signature blend of Tencel and Rayon is a wonderful combination of refinement and practicality. Tencel lends weight to create long lines and an elegant drape, along with a soft feel and suede-like finish. For the environmentally-conscious, Tencel comes from a creation process using 100% biodegradable cellulose fiber that is processed using an organic solvent, then spun into a luxurious fiber.

Different from other man-made fibers, Rayon is not synthetic, being made from regenerated wood pulp, an Eco-natural, cellulose-rich raw material. Rayon is soft, strong and absorbent, which makes for an ideal garment in keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. We also love how vibrantly the colors appear on this fabric, enriching our garments with vivid hues.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash warm with like colors, and with mild detergent (do not use bleach, do not use Woolite, and do not pour fabric softener directly on garment). Tumble dry low (do not use dryer sheets). Warm, steam iron. Dry Clean OK.

Note: Actual colors may vary slightly due to your screen.

THE STORY

One of our best selling body styles is our woven Big Shirt, which is traditionally a Men's silhouette, but fashionably called the "Boyfriend Shirt" when donned by women. Primary design elements used in this wardrobe staple have origins reaching back to the early 1900's when women's apparel design embraced the contemporary ethic of clean lines and uncomplicated styling. Our rendition of this "chemise moderne" classic combines sensible styling with functional appeal, and it is crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly Tencel fabrics chosen for durability, comfort and minimal care.

Our Big Shirt features a traditional point collar with a button down front. Full length sleeves end with buttoning cuffs. The backside sports a classic yoke with a centered box pleat. This full bodied silhouette displays graceful draping front and back, affording its' wearer long wearing comfort. Additional design elements include a breast pocket, round bottom hem, and subtle stitching throughout the shirt. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile top, which pairs well with skirts, pants, leggings and designer jeans, making it a wonderful choice for travel, work or play.

This Tianello natural fibered Tencel garment was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.

Beautiful, functional, timeless!

I am a longtime fan of Tianello clothing. The Tercel shirts are wonderful staples in my wardrobe. Whether worn as a blouse or as a shirt jacket over a tank or tee, they are always in fashion. The fabric is soft but substantial. A three-season staple.

Thank you Sandra! I am pleased that you love wearing Tianello! Steve B.

Shirt is not as long as appears in picture!

I have purchased several "Big Shirts" in the past and love them. However, I was disappointed with my this most recent Big Shirt purchase. The shirt is shorter in length and the sleeves are shorter. What I liked about previous Big Shirts is that I could wear the shirt as a light coat esp when traveling and the long length was attractive as a cover-up.. I will not purchase any more Big Shirts since the dimensions have been changed. Too expensive if not loved!

Hello Jill If you ordered the 'Boyfriend Shirt' TMS2R, this is the newer cut which is 1” shorter in the sleeves and the body length.... and the and it is sized down one size from the 'BIG Shirt'. If you ordered the TMS2 Mens shirt the pattern has never changed. This is the “Original” Big Shirt. I hope this helps! Thank you for your comments... Steve B.

20 Years+ Tianello Tencel!

Bought my first Tianello tencel shirt about 20 years ago and still wearing one of them now. Delighted to find them available online and especially the boyfriend shirt. These days I wear leggings often and that one is long enough to be suitable for leggings on me. Travels well too.

I love the colors of the Boyfriend shirt. I wear the XL as a jacket over a sleeveless tank, and I wear the Large or medium as a blouse itself. I have your shirts for years, but I needed a pick me up, so I re-ordered. So disappointed when you are out of stock!

Nancy, we are sewing the TENCEL Boyfriend shirt as fast as we can to keep you happy! Steve B.

need to get shirt in Large

I recently purchased one of you shirts in XL. I have had one of your shirts for over 10 years and I have loved it, but it is now at the end of it's life.

The XL that I bought is too large but when I tried to order it in LARGE my color choices (coal, moss, or cobalt) are not available. I am supposed to get a notification from you when they become available, but I need to have an idea of time frame. I look forward to hearing from you so I can figure out my next step. Thanks for your help.

Thank you Kathleen... we have the TENCEL 'Boyfriend shirt on the machines now and the finished product should be available in colors in the next 2 weeks.
