Our favourite 3/4 sleeve tees!

Wardrobe essentials, like the basic t-shirt, are the building blocks of where personal style begins. We need a good supply of basics to which we can add fashion items, statement pieces and accessories to create a look which is truly our own.

As the heat dies down and the cool weather hasn’t quite set in, I find that 3/4 sleeve tees are the one wardrobe essential that I cannot live without! You can keep them casual or dress them up and you will find that they will work with a multitude of looks.

We love them because:

  • they are ideal for in-between seasons – and throughout a mild winter for that matter!
  • great for keeping the upper arms under wraps – gotta love that!
  • are easy to wear

Do you like to wear 3/4 sleeve tees?  


  1. Can’t stand wearing 3/4 sleeves. Got to be either none, short or long. If I wear 3/4 I tend to be tugging at them all the time, trying to make therm longer.

    • I totally agree with you. Also can’t stand the bottom half of my arm getting cold in winter. Don’t get the point of 3/4 length jumpers. T shirts are OK but like you I prefer short or full length.

    • Hard to put a jacket on because they ride up, arms are cold in when you put your arm on a table or desk, and basically a pain to deal with. Just a way to cut manufacturer’s cost but still raise the price.

  2. I agree Lyndall, i also detest 3/4 sleeves as they irritate me and make me cranky, always trying to tug them down or bunched up above the elbow. Never buy them any more

  3. Love a 3/4 sleeve – hate long sleeves and always push or roll up to my choice of length. Like to have the upper arms covered and in cooler weather the 3/4 length is ideal for me.

    • I’ve actually got long arms, find most long sleeves too short, and like sleeves above my watch/bracelet length. Strange. And prefer V-neck, not round. Enhances neckline better and for me more flattering. Avoid round stripes at all cost.

  4. I love the 3/4 sleeve, I have many of them because I’m forever pushing my sleeves up if there long.
