A retro-inspired jacket — in the classic blue-and-white color combo — has the very nice habit of dressing up every piece you pair it with. The highly textural stitch and clean silhouette give this jacket the kind of toss-on chic that looks fresh against shorts or skinny jeans. Open front with hook-and-eye closure. Finished with link-stitch trim at the collar, front placket, hem, and cuffs. Hip length. Midweight cotton. Imported.
This sweater is versatile and stands our in a retro/classic fashion. I bought it as an option to wear to the office with black pants (although one could easily wear it with jeans) but found it too small to provide the coverage over either the shirt or blouse I wore underneath. I am a bit confused about this as I wear either a medium or a large and have never had the experience where a GH large was too small for me. Perhaps the problem was the way I wanted to wear it; I myself would like to be able to fasten the sweater should I choose and still have it look classy (not tight or too short). At any rate, a beautifully designed sweater, and although I had to return it, I will look for the bigger size should it come back into stock.

Very pretty sweater, with unusual patterned weave. Office-right, but also adds a touch of class to jeans. I"m very happy with this purchase. :-)

Great summer sweater

Great lightweight wrap. The color and texture add interest to solid color dresses and T/skirt. Perfect weight and sleeve length for evening or an air-conditioned restaurant or theater.
