I have been looking for a replacement for my red and white striped shirt for quite a while now. I bought it on a whim at Zumiez (I know, I know) my sophomore year of college, and it immediately became my most worn item of clothing to date. Poor shirt has been washed and hung and washed and hung, the white is a little dingy after so much wear, and the fit is…not what it once was.
Because of my immense love for this shirt and its MVP status in my closet, the replacement has to be seriously perfect. This is why I haven’t just bought up any old striped shirt. I tweeted the other night that I would pay a stupid amount of money for the perfect red Breton striped tee hoping someone would lend a hand, but no one else seemed to know either.
My main contender at this point is the Boden top. From online, it looks perfect, but there are some reviews that say it wrinkles badly, I would want to get the sleeves altered to 3/4 length, and Boden makes you pay to return stuff. Does anyone have experience with Boden or this tee? I’m worried about sizing and about the wrinkling.
So that’s where I stand. Help me choose!
