J Crew’s perfect shirt in buffalo check (97071, $88) . The color choices are buffalo blue & buffalo red. Buffalo red is sold out online and I am not surprised. I see sizes 2-12 currently available and do not know if it ran from 00 to 14.
Size 6 – I tried it on in-person on 9/26, so it just hit the stores and you should be able to find one if you want red. I was immediately disappointed that it’s red/dark grey and not red/black. I guess it’s not totally black in the stock pic, but I thought that stupid bright filter they throw on there was washing the top out. I expected the dark checks to be black. Check it out on Ema.
I tried on the size 4 and I do NOT know where those pictures went. I just re-sized them and marked as size 4, did the size 6 pics and the size 4 pics totally disappeared. I did a search on my computer, etc. #iamnotcrazy. Too bad because I wanted to show you the size 4 & size 6, side-by-side. They were pretty similar in size. I liked the 4 everywhere except the stomach, but that’s my personal problem. I say if you want a more fitted look, i.e. to tuck into a pencil skirt or other things you’d want a fitted look on top, take the smaller of your numeric sizes. Esp if you have a smaller chest & want the fitted look. If you want a looser feel, closer to the boyfriend style then take the larger of your 2 sizes. It still won’t be oversized or baggy, but you’ll have more slack in the top and should be able to get a long sleeve henley under.
The weight is very thin, so it’s more of an early fall top because I would only want to wear a cardi or vest over it. However, the lighter weight might allow more layers if that’s what you need for your cold temps. I wanted to give it a thumbs down because I was disappointed about the black actually being grey or faded black, whatever. But, it felt comfortable on, so it gets a side thumb.
Girls buffalo check jacket – Cute! Some of the Crewcuts pieces seem like they’d translate very well as adult gear.
Oxford popover – Size 6 – (94936, $72) – The color is sky blue. Went down to $39.99 online and sold out. I saw some in a couple stores over the weekend and at the same online price of $39.99.
The usual popover fare from J Crew. I just noticed those chest pockets. Since I’m just realizing they’re there, I guess they didn’t bother me at all. They’re not too big, not too little and they don’t add any weight.
With the excursion quilted vest (XS). I like how the colors are lighter, but the weight of the fabrics still say fall.
