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.

Light Weight is a breezy 4-oz. square weave to help keep your summer cool. Used only on Sympatico tops, it dries quickly and is slightly more prone to wrinkles than our Mid Weight fabric*. It's great in the tropics and on those steamy summer days! Both weights are soft and comfy and let your skin breathe.

Easy, Eco-Friendly Care
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:
- Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
- We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
- 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.)
- Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
- 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.
- 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.

Ready for (almost) anything

This lightweight twilight is not my first tuxedo top. I find it flattering without being tight or having a low neck. It is for when I want to be comfortable, dignified and in a really pretty color. The tops don't wrinkle as badly as linen, and the hems don't need ironing after washing. The buttons light up the darker color.

A top for all seasons

The perfect top for spring, summer, fall and winter. Can easily be dressed up or down for any occasion.
Rounding out my collection

My only misgiving is I wish that there were more colours. This is my 5th top. Thank You!

I love the feel of the fabric and the style is the most flattering thing in my closet.
The blue was closer to navy than I expected. Would love to have a deep red one someday.

The fabric is soft and washed well upon its first laundering. I will definitely be ordering more clothing from Sympatico.

Such supple fabric! I wasn't sure what the light-weight version would be like and was most impressed. Judging by the two different weights in the two different tops I have, the heavier is good for a jacket or cold-weather wear, while the light-weight can fly in warmer weather, under a sweater, jacket, coat... Really happy with this top!
Great product and great value!

I ordered the tuxedo lightweight top, my first Sympatico. It won't be the last! The fit is comfortable, the fabric hand soft and breathable and it doesn't wrinkle like silk. People are asking, "Is it Eileen Fisher?" A beautiful garment for a fraction of what I'd pay Eileen.
Love the fit!

I purchased this top to go with the angled skirt and absolutely love the way it fits. I have a really hard time finding clothes that hang right on my body type and this just looks so elegant. I will be purchasing more from you. Thanks so much!
Airy and Comfortable
