This is without a doubt the best striped shirt I’ve ever owned. I realize that’s a big statement, but it’s true. In the past few months I’ve taken it on a 4 week road trip and a 3 week trip to Minnesota. I wore it more than anything else I brought on either trip. I wore it with shorts and jeans, under a my patagonia vest or on its own.
A little background on this shirt…I had seen Saint James striped shirts on other bloggers. They are an investment (the version I’m wearing is $75) and aren’t sold at many retailers so I didn’t have an option of trying one on. I’m always hesitant to make a purchase if I have to pay for shipping and returns, especially if I’m unsure of my size. I rarely buy anything at full price so when Tuckernuck had a 20% off and free shipping promo for the holidays, I finally made the plunge and purchased the classic navy and white striped tee.
I am wearing an XS, which is my normal size in most brands. The shirt does run a little boxy. I wasn’t sure if I loved the style at first, but now I can’t imagine it fitting differently. My favorite look is to roll the sleeves a couple of times and half tuck the front.
Alright, enough about the shirt. Happy hump day! Can you believe there’s only one more day left in the month of August? We’re in the midst of a late summer heat wave in LA. Luckily the beach is a short drive away!
