A Find: Three-Quarter Sleeves
February 3, 2006
Iâ€™m always on the lookout for good seasonal transition pieces, and the new crop of three quarter sleeve sweaters seems to be just the ticket as we swing into Spring. J. Crew offers a clean-lined classic cashmere cable knit ($148) with either a crew or V neck. The sleeves fall about halfway between the wrist and the elbow, so these shirts are perfect for layering or throwing on before hitting a chilly movie theater or icy office. They come in ten candy colors like ultra-preppy Azalea and Bright Green, and the azure Dutch Blue conjures visions of nighttime strolls on the beach.
At $44, the Gap’s knit version is cost effective. Stock your closet with their classic bright-colored tees then play mix-n-match as the leaves turn green and the weather gets warmer. Find it at Gap.com.
