In addition to NAS order I also placed an order to Brooks Brothers taking advantage of the sale and using opportunity to pick it up on the border. I planned to go to the BB store in the mall, try them on and return what does not work. Well it did not work out this way: when Suz and I were done with NAS fitting room and went to look for BB store we found out that it closes at 7PM and it was already past that :-(
So I had to take everything back with me to London and try on next day. Two short sleeve sweaters were a bust: they were too short and also they had an old fashion vibe. I will return them next time I am in US (Good BB has 90 day return policy!)
The third SS sweater (pic 1) has potential I think. It is too short for pants but should work with skirts and also with faux-tuck with some pants I think. It has the wider band on the bottom which makes it more modern that the other two. It also has an interesting silver semi-sheer stripe which adds the textural effect.
It will replace an old purple tank which is too short for me.
Pic 2-3 Tailored white non-iron shirt. I own a single BB shirt and I love the fabrication but it is a bit snug in size 10 - and also short because the style is fitted (the shortest of them all). This shirt happened to be a single one in stock and only in size 12 so I decided to get it. I love the black piping on the front. It does not feel snug and I think the length is passable (but maybe I am kidding myself?) This shirt will replace my size 10 shirt which I am giving to my sister.
Pic 3-4 Tailored purple stripe non-iron shirt. This is one size up - size 14. I decided to try a different size to see how the fit is. Suz told me that she would never forgive me if I don't keep it so I obeyed... I don't see big difference in the shoulder fit but it has more ease through the body and a tiny bit longer. It will replace Anthro tencel denim shirt which has uncomfortable sleeves.
I am keeping them anyway and took the tags already but would love to know what you think.
