posting this week, and I’ll warn you right now…all thumbs-up from me
so if you came for bad ju-ju, this isn’t your week. 🙂
Vintage Polo (950659, $44.50) runs regular XS – XXL & tall M – XXL. Eight color choices. 50% Polyester, 38% Cotton, 12% Rayon.
fruit?…ok) vintage polo short-sleeved shirt. Figured since things
are getting warmer here that some short-sleeved action was in order.
This was a fairly lightweight shirt in terms of fabric density and
slightly ‘fitted’ in cut, although it wasn’t mentioned on the tag. Or
at least that’s my take on the size Large as it seemed to fit
slightly tighter in the shoulders and back as you can tell from the
picture below. Quality was good and I liked the button choice as
opposed to just sewing some orange buttons on there…the contrast of
these buttons felt a little ‘vintage-er’ and the darker threads on
the shoulders lent to that as well. I also liked the collar being
slightly sharper-cut in the tip section.
fit for me and just the right amount of style.
Textured Full-Zip Hooded Sweater (100052, $89.50) runs regular XS – XXL & tall M – XXL. 100% cotton. I was told to tell you Banana Republic has popbacks and that it might still be found in-store.
this hoodie. Seemed slightly fitted again for a size Large (or I’m
just getting massively yoked…yeah, that’s it). Pretty basic design.
Hood was ample, sleeve cuffs a tad long (perhaps for rolling?…I
don’t generally roll tho), upper arms slightly tight. Not super-high
in style pizzaz, but I wasn’t really looking for that in my hoodie
Well-made with small style details (pocket strips, hood inside color,
longer cuffs) sprinkled in.
Tailored Slim-Fit Taupe Wool Dress Pant (932351, $98) run waist 28-40 with length choices of 28, 30, 32 & 34. The color is warm taupe. 100% wool.
shot and went with these light brown guys. The tag reads that they
are Tailored Slim-Fit and I believe them, but there seems to be a
bit more material given in the B-Rep version compared to the J Crew
variant. Good solid build quality here. Belt loops big enough for
optional taller belts, pockets deep and comfortable, and standard
sturdy stitching. Good for office wear and seemed to be just fine for
‘Biz-casual’ when paired with the polo shirt above.
choice seemed to be good for variety of uses. Fit was relaxed enough
for comfortable wear.
