J Crew’s merino Tippi sweater in mixed stitch (02692, $85) runs XXS – XL. The color choices are heather graphite back (stock pic) & navy neon fuschia.
Size S – The description says semi fitted. I’ll agree with that and then some. There was definitely no looseness to it. I should’ve kept digging on the shelf for a M, but many of the embellished Tippis have run a little big so I thought I’d try on the S. Check it out on Phi Phi .
Oh, it was tight. The zigs got some extra zag when I put them on me. I’ll be honest. I’ve been working out. But it’s more like working out my cooking & drinking skills. (snare, cymbal crash)
I kind of liked the sweater. Of course, it’s stripes! But I’m looking, looking and I can’t figure out what I dislike. Now that I see the pic, I notice that it makes me look hulky around the shoulder & upper arm. So take note of that if you’ve got the butterfly stroke enhanced upper body. Definitely not saying I do. I can’t even swim. lol Note the shrunken sleeve length. I’ll give a big boo on behalf of long arm JCAs. I love braceet sleeves, but this seems getting a little too far away from the wrist.
This sweater went on promo today for $75 + STYLE40 makes this sweater a net $45. STYLE40 ends on Sun, 8/4. I expect the promo price to stay on this sweater thru that date, but you never know. The stars have been shifting in the Crewniverse lately and moving prices around quite a bit.
