J Crew - thermal henley in stripe

J Crew's thermal henley in stripe (28569, $45) runs XXS - XL. It's currently on promo for $29.50, making it an even better deal with COLOR25 or CARDMEMBER (30%).

The color choices are dark emerald with white stripes (DEM), navy with smoky coral stripes (SCO), white with neon rose stripes (NRO) & white with navy stripes (NAV)

Size S - Classic white & navy. Me likes, of course. Maybe it's just me, but I'm pretty sure this runs a little bigger than last year's thermal stripe henley. If you are thin, smaller bust you may even want to size down one. It just depends on how tight you want to wear it. I am fine with the S and that provides room for shrinkage if there is any. I noticed that last year's henley. I would only wear a cami underneath, but maybe some of you wear the tissue turtle under? Last year's version had a solid cuff at the sleeve on the grey. No solid cuff on any of the colors this year. That could be a design choice. If someone wants to shorten the sleeve, the cuff won't be an issue. Or it could be a cost choice if it's cheaper to produce w/out the solid cuff. Check it out on Audreybella.

Get excited long limbers. This ain't no bracelet sleeve.

Size S - I didn't care for the pink color stripes. I really like the tone of the white. It's perfect. It's like 100% whole milk. Not fat free, not stark and not dirty creme. I'm going off memory here, hoping I'm right. I do recall being very careful not to get any makeup on the tops. I would still be as careful if they were creme or tan, but I just recall thinking the color was very clean looking.

An up close shot.

Did not work with the excursion vest in candied cherry. The lighting played tricks when I was on the sales floor and I thought they might go together.

The Feeling
The fabric on this is sturdy and feels a bit nicer than last year's striped crewneck. The placket is particularly sturdy and hopefully the buttons are sewn on tight to match the quality. A solid basic.

COLOR25 gets 25% off sitewide thru Sun, 11/25.

  1. I like this on you! Wish I had checked here before placing my order tonight (I should know better!). I ordered my little mini a cardi in retro jade to match my retro jade pieces (not sure about Crewcuts sizing yet, but she'll eventually fit into it!).

    OT - I don't recall you mentioning buying the Tippi in retro jade. Do you have it? I just got mine from the last promo and it seems pretty thin from what I remember it was like in store. I think it will be going back. It's so sheer!

  2. I bought the Dark Emerald and Navy in the Small. Love them. Perfect for lounging. I bought 3 colors from last year, non-buttons.
