Factory buffalo check shirt-jacket (E4424, $89.50) runs XXS – XL. Color choices are electric red (ERE) and navy ivory (NIV). The retail one is making a comeback as well. It’s wool. This is 100% cotton.
Size XS chest = 40.5″
Size S chest = 44.5″
Size XS vs S – navy ivory – Based on the shirt measurements, I ordered a XS. I was sure it would be plenty big. I was surprised when it fit close to my usual size small. In the pic on the right, you can see how it’s more relaxed from mid-torso on down.
For size reference I’m 5’0″, 34DD. My jeans are Loft’s modern skinny ankle (8P). My wash looks darker than what they currently have online. The Loft’s modern high-waist skinny ankle jeans are closer to the shade I have on in these pics.
Sleeve comparison. There’s more length and room in the size S, as you can see. The fabric is a toasty flannel. It’s on the heavier side, but not stiff.
Size S – This is the size I settled on. I can’t say I will wear anything with long sleeves underneath, but the room is available for a thin layer if I should decide to. I wasn’t sure I would like the zip feature, but I do.
Factory plaid throw blanket (E0719, $49.50) – The color is called blue grey plaid (BGP).
- 60″L x 50″W.
I saw this at the beginning of the season and promised myself I’d order it at some point. I am wearing it as a shawl, just to show you what it looks like. I have no intent of wearing it out this way because it’s a true blanket.
My mom used it like a muffler around her hands the other nite at my nephew’s football game. I will put it in the bottom of Mini G’s stroller in case we need it when we’re out. She’s not in the stroller often, but utilize the bottom of that thing to ensure I have everything we might need.
The blanket won’t cut a serious chill, but it’s handy for the right occasion. Or just leave it at home as part of your decor. Come to think of it, this would make a nice gift for someone who would enjoy the print.
