New stripey?
New stripey? by Garderob featuring boyfriend cropped jeans
When I took pictures of my stripey tops for the previous post I noticed that there were holes in two of them. The T by Alexander Wang and another one by Carin Wester that isn't in the picture. The hole in the Wang top is pretty big. It's a "Dry clean only" , but it's linen, so I've washed it in cold water. I got it about a year ago, and haven't washed it that many times, and always in a washing bag. My first and last T by Alexander Wang. A.P.C´s cotton long sleeves usually last a very long time.


  1. That's so unfortunate! I've never owned an A.P.C. striped top but I'm considering getting one from Saint James. The quality seems to be okay and it's in the same price range as the ones from A.P.C.!
    On a different note, I really like this outfit, I would wear it in an instant :)

  2. Yikes, good to know that T by Alexander Wang aren't worthwhile investments ... but I like your APC choice! I have a dark blue striped top by APC and have had a little bit of the colors bleeding into the white parts ... but I don't think you'll have problems with this version. I really like your collage! As always, such beautiful and subtle use of color

  3. Agree with S! Thanks for the warning even though I've had some suspicions that the quality may not be good. Could you make a post on how you take care of your clothes and wash them? Do you wash your linen clothes in the washing machine on wool programme with "lite snurr i maskinen"? Haha!

  4. mmr - I've seen the Saint James stripes online, but never in person. They seem great! I'd wear this outfit too, especially the bag...
    S - Thanks, I think I'll pass on this one. I need a new classic navy/white to replace the ones with holes.
    Fleurette - I usually just wash linen in washing bags in the gentle cycle, same as the wool cycle I think, med lite snurr :)! I can make a post on it later, when I find the time! By the way, I forgot that I said that I'd ask if anyone was interested in my things before I put them on ebay. I have a few auctions there now, and just remembered it. I'll let you know next time!

  5. Haha, I saw your auctions earlier today!! If you have anything that you think I'd love, some IM things.. let me know!!

  6. That's too bad about your T. The APC one looks nice.
