  1. I ordered and returned two Banana Republic washable merino crewneck sweaters. First, the bad: 1. Both light collars were completely transparent. 2. One sweater was about 4” wider than the other, even though they were the same style and size. The good: the wool felt nice and soft and the quality seemed good. I recommend them if you’re able to purchased them in-store and try them on, but not online.

    Levis has a new limited edition “501-Day” collection. I’m very interested in the selvedge denim jeans, but I’m not sure how I feel about paying $168 for Levis.

    1. Jeanne, I have had that same experience with BR merino. The sweaters I purchased last year were much more size consistent. I'm stuck with a final sale sweater this year - it is see through and too small in the shoulders but too large everywhere else. As you said, it's nice quality merino so it is disappointing that the sizing is so inconsistent.
