This shirt looks just like it but it is not.
when on sale with an extra percentage off (like it is
nowfrom time to time).
Though the factory shirt does not come in petite, I was surprised to find the XXS exactly the same size as the keeper chambray in petite 00 except the sleeves are 0.375 inches longer.
In almost every way, I much prefer the factory version:
- The fabric is not as obviously distressed and well worn as if you've had it forever.
- The fabric is substantial and feels more like a denim shirt.
- Due to the above two reasons, the shirt has a neater, crisper look.
The two shirts have the exact same design and details, but you can see the keeper on the right "spent countless summers in the sun."
Pocket details: factory on the left and the keeper on the right.
Collar and placket: factory on the left and the keeper on the right.
The closer-to-the-edge topstitching on the keeper's collar
(and cuffs) is the only sewing detail I found different.
Grey blue factory shirt on the left and slightly brighter blue, more worn out keeper on the right.
So on the summer solstice, I wore the factory shirt with
my favorite happy crazy jeans (on the left) to lunch with friends.
The sunny colors of the pants remind me of ...
See the Jacaranda trees with the almost bare branches?
I should have taken a pic a few weeks ago when they were completely covered in flowers, you can still see some of the lovely blooms.
Husby and I also played some golf.
He got an Eagle while I tried to not chop up the course
or land in the water.
I did some weeding and found this guy.
Does it photograph tall? It's the exact same height as me.
(How did the gardeners miss it?)
We then split a beer on the patio.
It was a really good day.
And how goes the sunshine where you are, everybody?
