Size Guide


A sustainable minimalist closet starts with go-to pieces like our Long Sleeve Scoop Neck Tee. Customers have been raving about it since its introduction in 2010. We worked hard to perfect the beautiful scoop neckline, finishing it with a fine rib trim that helps hold its shape. The cut has just enough gentle shaping through the body. We use organic Pima cotton fabric - unmatched for softness and longevity. We have a short sleeve version too! 

  • 95% organic Pima cotton, 5% spandex jersey
  • The hint of spandex adds comfortable stretch and helps retain shape
  • Machine wash
  • 25.5-inch length (size Medium)
  • Gently shaped fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru

Fair Indigo Premium Organic Fabric
Pima cotton grown in Peru is among the softest yet strongest and most enduring on the planet – with proper care, your t-shirt will wash and wear beautifully for years with minimal pilling or shrinking. Our organic stretch jersey fabric is washed before the garment is cut and sewn, an uncommon but very beneficial process. It not only insures your tee won’t shrink, but also prevents twisting and puckering around seams that often happens in your dryer when the fabric and threads shrink at different rates from each other.
How does it do good?
Our GMO-free organic cotton is grown on a small family farm in the Ica region of Peru - a place with the ideal climate and soil to cultivate Pima cotton. It’s then milled and knit in GOTS certified mills that are award-winning leaders in recycling water. Our dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The tees are meticulously cut and sewn in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

Just What I Was Looking For!
Nice tees! I bought a striped in medium, which is a nice trim, natural fit. I got a white one in size small as the medium wasn't available. It's pretty fitted but I bought it for layering so that's fine. Nice soft hand, enough substance to not feel flimsy, but definitely not heavy fabric. The white is too thin for wearing alone, in my opinion. I've washed and dried both and they look as good as new. The scoop is perfect! Flattering but not revealing.

The best quality tees at a reasonable price
I've owned several Fair Indigo tshirts for upwards of five years. They are *still* soft, clean, and in good condition after five years of wear. This is unbelievable quality--and when you combine that with the organic material, fair trade labor practices, and reasonable price (esp. compared to other organic cotton retailers), it's really amazing.

Great fabric - horrible label paint!
I love this fabric and that it's organic and fair trade. I'm hating the paint Fair Indigo is using for the label right at the neck line inside the shirt or tank, As soon as they're washed a few times, the label paint starts to lift and it is exceedingly scratchy against the skin. I hope Fair Indigo, my favorite organic clothing company, starts to label it's clothing with a non-scratchy medium or puts it's label inside down at the hip area where it won't likely touch the skin. Right now, I'm having to wear my tanks and tops (and I have many) turned inside out when the paint on the label starts to lift and scratch at my neck.

Love this top!
So soft and comfortable. Nice thickness to the material, great quality. The fit is perfect. I'm 5'5 and approx 120 lbs, wear a small or medium depending on the cut; with this top a small fits perfectly. Nice length so that it doesn't ride up. Sleeve length nice and long. Perfect! I reach for this one many times a week. Would love to have it in the clover green as well, hope you get more in stock.

Wonderful layering tee in quality fabric!
I ordered two of these in boysenberry and clover green . My usual size M fits great! I own a couple of other items in boysenberry and the color works great for me, but I took a chance on the clover green. It is a beautiful dark green with blue undertones. So glad I ordered it. The necklines do vary a bit on these tees, as one is a bit wider than the other. That also happened with my two short sleeve scoop necks. It is not a problem for me though.

Worth the money
I purchased two of the black scoop neck tees. I love the feel of the cotton and the weight of the material. I wash in cold and air or fluff dry and find that the black does not fade easily. Will definitely order more. Most importantly fair trade and organic.

Versatile shirt
Great fit, length, and comfortable, but stylish shirt. I got the vanilla and ocean striped shirt and pair it with a navy skirt to dress it up or wear for work or pair it with some nice jeans to dress it down. So versatile. Love it! I'm 5'5.5" and about 135lbs and the medium fits me great.

Wonderful shirts!
This is my first purchase from Fair Indigo, and I will definitely purchase again! Love these shirts! I bought two: one in green and one in violet blue. Great colors. I am tall with a long torso and long arms, and it's so hard to find shirts that fit me properly. But these are perfect! Great length all around, flattering, nicely made and super soft and comfortable. I love that they didn't shrink in the wash, too. Very pleased! Thank you.

Great top
It's a nice top. A bit thick. Great fit! Definitely getting other colors.

Great Shirt
The honey color is nice. The shirt is well made, the fit is great. It is soft and washes well.

buy these in every color
I live in long sleeves during the winter - these are perfect. Nice stretch and cut, good fall weight. I bought a few and will be buying more.

Perfect sleeve length!
This shirt has long enough sleeves! Even after washing!! Love the fit (and I am rounder through the belly area) and the fabric. I wear an 8 or 10 in jeans or dresses, and a size Large was the right size for me for this tee.

Best T-Shirt Ever
This shirt is awesome. The quality of the fabric is great...so soft and washes beautifully. But the most awesome thing is the length...it is a few inches longer than any other shirt I have ever had and I love it. I ordered the extra small which is what I wear in Fair Indigo tops and dresses. It fits perfect.

Worth every penny!
I'm 5'7" so I don't think of myself as all that tall; however, finding tee shirts with sleeves that are long enough after they've been washed and dried is challenging (LL Bean and Sahalie fail time and time again) and this is what makes these Fair Indigo tee shirts pure gold for me. Aside from the wonderful organic & fair trade manufacturing, the fit is terrific - nice and long so you can wear those low cut jeans without embarrassing yourself when you bend down to help your kids, and the sleeves are generously enough cut that you can actually keep wearing the shirt year after year. I have quite a few of these tee shirts and they have really proven themselves worth the higher price tag as you will be able to wear them for years to come, even with frequent washing. I just got the gray and black striped one as a xmas gift and I LOVE the way it fits - fitted without being clingy, long enough without being frumpy and again, those long sleeves that keep my wrists warm in the cold winter months. I'd love to see some more colors - red in particular!

Good cut and fit
I read the reviews and stewed over which size to order since people claim the sizes run small. I stuck with my usual size (S) and am glad I did. Must say I really like the fit and just ordered more of these. The fabric isn't exactly what I imagined but still this is a perfect everyday shirt.

Quality long-sleeved t-shirt
I bought the "honey" color--beautiful fall/mustardy color. It fits wonderfully (I bought a medium--I am 28, 5'6", 147 lbs, athletic build), and it is constructed well. Will definitely buy more--a staple for fall/winter wardrobes; Was a little concerned about how "scoop" was the scoop neck, but it is definitely modest, not ballerina style which is nice
Review by empthompson / (Posted on 10/29/2015)
soft and excellent quality
"The t-shirt is soft but a heavier quality which I love, compared to some of the cheap cotton t-shirts I've been tolerating for a number of years now. The true test was after the first machine washing & drying of this shirt. This is where quality trumps quantity and I was impressed with how the shirt kept it's color, softness and shape!
My only disappointment is in the length of the sleeves. I purchased a medium (which I usually do in junior sizing from places like the gap, Banana Republic, etc.) and the overall fit was looser (I am fine with that) but the sleeve length seemed a little too long. I plan on ordering a different color in this style and will order the small to see if that makes a difference."

Love this tee!
This is so worth it! Compared to other tees I've bought over the past few years this one has held up in the washer and dryer over several washes now and looks as good as new. It's so incredibly soft and comfortable. The scoop neck is just right. It's a basic tee, but so much more, that I want to own in 10 colors. Love it and will be getting more!

Great T
i love this T! I bought the stripped T. The material is soft and a nice weight for winter. It is made very well and washes great. It does run snug. I usually wear a small from Fair Indigo but think medium would have been better.
