There are a handful of garments that I wear over and over again, and this tunic captures the best elements of those staples—an easy, unfussy fit, long sleeves that tuck neatly under vests and jackets, flattering mid-thigh length, and one big pocket to catch all the miscellany I end up with throughout the day.
The cut skims the body loosely making it ideal for layering in the fall and winter. It's my favorite tunic to wear to the studio—when you're working, comfort is key, but you still want to look put together. The Harper has an interesting and avant-garde appeal, and it would only be improved by drips and smears of paint or a dusting of flour from the kitchen.
To accommodate the long sleeves without limiting the range of motion too much, this version is cut slightly narrower than the original, short sleeve Harper. For a roomier fit and elbow-length sleeves, check out the short sleeve version!
100% Linen, Oeko-Tex certified. Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, and is hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.
Linen is a natural fiber made from cellulose fiber inside the stalks of the flax plant. It is a complete product of nature, and can vary drastically in color and texture based on the growing conditions of the season. Variations in base color and texture are not uncommon.
Natural imperfections in weave are also to be expected and embraced--slubs, nubs, and occasional bits of organic matter are common in linen. If you are looking for the homogeny and perfection of a synthetic fiber or a finely woven cotton you will not find it in linen.
Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.
Linen is a natural fiber and is expected to wear and fade over time, which we love.
- Callan C.Verified Buyer3 weeks agoRated 5 out of 5 starsComfortable Tunic
After admiring the Harper tunic for a long time, I ordered the 1x/2x based on the size chart. I found it to be very oversized, so exchanged for the L/XL, which fit better while still being slightly oversized. I wish there was a slightly shorter version, since the tunic length is almost like a dress on my 5'2" frame (especially in the back). But it's still a nice quality, comfortable linen top.

I am a repeat customer for the long sleeve Harper Tunic. I love the styling and the material. Look forward to wearing it once the weather warms up!
- Emily M.Verified Buyer1 month agoRated 5 out of 5 starsToo big
I’ve lost 20 pounds in the past 8 months and the size is a big too large. I love these Harper tops - have bought at least five in the past but the size I’ve always ordered swallows me.
I’d really like to size down and exchange this too and also the short sleeve olive Harper top.Elizabeth Suzann3 weeks ago

I have one of the first of these and was happy to get this one though the cut is a bit different - or I changed a lot! It’s lovely though and I hope to wear it a lot this spring
- Jessica K.Verified Buyer2 years agoRated 5 out of 5 starsPerfectly oversized, so cozy...
Perfectly oversized, so cozy yet it looks very sharp. The sleeves are the perfect length & I love how it drapes. The pocket is cute & functional. The perfect garment!
