As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches so making color matches can be challenging. My two fabric weights often emerge from the dye bath with subtly different shading. Though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they still look great together.

When ordering, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. If I don't have it in stock, I can often match garment shades using fabric from the same dye bath. If I need extra time to cut and sew, I’ll let you know when to expect delivery.

If you are comfortable with garments having similar (but not necessarily exact) shades, there's no need to check the box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Your size/color not in stock? If I have the fabric, I can make it to order. Learn more or send me an email to check availability.

Our versatile, bestselling Tuxedo Top is great layered or alone. Like the entire Sympatico line of women’s hemp/Tencel clothing, it's handcrafted in the US to offer many seasons of wear.

  • 4-button band closure
  • In-seam darts
  • Side vents
  • Three-quarter sleeves
  • Flattering angled hemline
  • Longer back measures approximately 26".
  • Generous fit, runs large. If you are petite, order a size smaller.
  • Hand-crafted in the USA.

Fabric/Care:

  • Woven Mid Weight 6.2-oz of 55% hemp and 45% Tencel™ (lyocell)
  • Preshrunk: machine wash, tumble or line dry

Mid Weight is a 6.2-oz. square weave with a little more body than our Light Weight fabric*.

Matched sets: If you want your top to match the color of pants or a skirt exactly, it's better to select the Mid Weight. Both weights are soft and comfy and let your skin breathe.

It's crucial to measure yourself to ensure a good fit. Numerical sizes are guidelines but they vary widely from one maker to another. Click here for tips on taking your measurements.

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron. To prevent possible shine from a setting that's too-high, iron inside out.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    I’ve purchased this top before and this purchase was just a different color. LOVE this top! It’s well-made, flattering, and unusually comfortable to wear. I’m a repeat customer and a huge fan of Sympatico clothing.

    Tuxedo Top

    Thanks to your good advice on sizing, I ordered a top that allows room for laying but will keep a sleeker profile. I'm glad to have clothing that is age-appropriate but isn't the usual "old lady" stuff.

    Love this wrinkle-free jacket

    Just like the photo shows but what you don't see is this well-sewn item, with colorful buttons. Not sure why it called a tuxedo top though!

    I am a major fan of these lovely tops...the colors are scrumptious and the fabric is so comfortable...is it obvious that I own multiple colors? Thank you Rose for your beautiful work!

    Tuxedo Midweight top

    Posted by Susan Kepner on 17th Jul 2020

    I love this as it can be worn as a top when buttoned up or a jacket unbuttoned! A versatile weight for 3 seasons. also that it is made of more natural fibers that wash and dry easily.

    Tuxedo top

    Posted by Shyrl McCormick on 10th Jul 2019

    I love my Tuxedo Top. I got one as a gift. I love the looks and feel so much I ordered another one in another color. I was considering ordering with another product line, but when I thought about the feel and looks of the tuxedo, there was no question I wanted another one of those instead!
