J Crew’s skier sweater (HO13m 09136, $98) runs XXS – XL. The color is called indigo (IND). Why, I do not know. I would’ve bet, as usual, that it was black. 100% wool.
Size S – Skier sweater. That’s all the CFS (copywriter from space) came up with? That’s a missed opportunity for something closer to what we usually see. Sweater with cross country skier and winter pinetrees. Or something. This caught my eye on the way out of the store from making a return. It was in the front of the store, but tucked on a rack behind the main, front display so I didn’t see it until I exited. I would’ve had it folded on the front table as soon as you walk in the door.
Keeper chambray shirt in star dot ($89.50) runs regular 00-16 (06723) and petite 00-12 (08857). The color is called dark indigo (DIN).
Size 8 – There was no 6 to try. I wouldn’t have fit in it any way. This runs one size small, imo. It fits like the military pocket shirt (review). I got the 8 in that and it feels great. This shirt is ok. I think the scale of the stars is good. Larger stars would be kitschy. I’m not a big fan, though. I can see this getting a 2nd cut both in-store & online.
Handknit tile sweater (02696, $158) comes in atlantic black and mist grey, XXS – XL. It’s currently $119.99 online. I saw it marked $99.99 in-store on 11/27.
Size S – This felt like the right size. The shoulders were a little square. I don’t know if they are sort of stitched or woven that way or if it’s hanger indentations. I like the design of it. It probably looks cooler in the atlantic black, which has stronger colors. I felt like I was an an 80s thrift sweater in the mist grey. The triangle is doing nothing for my stomach. I think they overdid the tiled, diamond pattern on too many sweaters. This at least the third one.
