Our special distressing process makes this already supersoft cotton style permanently crinkled, giving it an even more broken-in feel. Allover tie-dye stripes. Fitted. V-neck. Short sleeves. Hits at hip. Import. Machine wash.This tee is alpha-sized, and I tried this tee on in a small, in the spearmint color. I saw it on a table while I was walking by, and it was super wrinkly - or crinkly is probably a better term, because the crinkles are intentional. The tee was soft, but at the same time, it was also kind of stiff and a little rough feeling where the crinkles were. The tee fits fairly true-to-size, but I think the sleeves are a little bit more fitted than some of J.Crew's other tees. The tee is also on the longer side, which I like, but I think tee length preference varies from person to person.
The fabric is really light, which is nice, but it is also incredibly sheer. There is way too much showing for my tastes. I am not normally a fan of tie-dye (or anything even resembling tie-dye), but I did think the pattern on this tee was kind of cute, as it's not really an in-your-face tie-dye.
Here is a close-up of the pattern. It actually reminds me more of J.Crew's watercolor-stripe pattern (available in some of their swimsuits this season).
I thought this tee was okay, but I left it behind because of its sheerness and the stiff crinkles. If J.Crew had put this same exact pattern out in a heavier knit and a smooth texture allover, I would have been really tempted by this one (and in the shell color as well)!
What do you think? Do you like this tee? Which colors do you like? What are your feelings on tie-dye?
