In the list of things that I
For my birthday then, it seemed appropriate to ask for the ultimate striped shirt from Saint James. No more crappy (sorry, shirts) jersey numbers without the proper weight, this was to be the shirt blessed by Chanel and Picasso, not to mention the American girl's dream version of what her French counterpart would wear. I've been wanting one for ages, and finally I've got two!
Sizing was tricky. While generally I am in favor of large shirts (effortless, blousey) the unisex Meridien II (I got mine from J. Crew, but one can always pop over to the Saint James website) was massive on me to the point of comical. No amount of sleeve rolling would save it, so I opted for the XS. It's a bit tricky as well--it doesn't exactly hang when it reaches the hip area, but I've never been one able to style onself as a waif.
I love it to bits, even if it is still to hot to wear it just yet. Soon enough it will autumnal, and I'll be able to wear little else. I also snagged the Naval II tee, that one in a larger size, but as it's the tiniest bit lighter, it's in the wash after several wears already.
