Halyard hoodie in surf stripe (08328, $89.50) – Size L – Runs XS – XL. The color is called porter blue (PBL).
Started off with a sporty little hoodie in a blue and white stripe. Fit and finish on this felt relaxed in the torso and comfortable in the arms/shoulders. I enjoyed the detailing of the button collar, and for this type of item the kangaroo pocket was handy and large. Thickness of material was on the order of rugby shirt weight, so not really heavyweight.
Also of note, the hood itself was of good size and will come in handy should the opportunity arise where it’s necessary to tell the troopers that these are not the droids they are looking for.
I liked this hoodie. Fit was relaxed, fabric tough and light and comfortable. Nice detailing interest points as well.
484 jean in dark worn wash (38555, $98) – Size 32X30 – The color is called dark worn (DWO). They run 28×32 – 36×34.
Well, let’s start off with the good. I enjoyed the color wash on these pants. Aside from that, however, these were just not for me. The fit I selected was ‘484’, which sits below the waist, is extra slim through the hip and thigh, and has an extra narrow leg. Wasn’t working for me. They don’t look ‘bad’ with the hoodie, but you couldn’t catch me with a shirt tucked-in wearing these publicly (unless you count this blog). Ah well.
Nope. Just can’t do it. Cut of these jeans is neither comfortable nor flattering. Negatory.
ThreeBowerly slim in cotton-linen (08419, $98) – Size 32X30 – The color is navy white hatch (NWH). They run 28×32 – 36×34.
So these pants were a linen/cotton mix. Solid build, lighter weight material feeling. Overall they were of a fitted ilk, with a slightly shorter inseam at the pelvis and fitted/trim legs. Good quality pockets and I enjoyed the color as well.
I liked these for their slightly trimmer fitted feel. Build quality was good and drape of material was nice with the added linen combo.
Bye for now…
