another grey tee option….

j.crew linen tee

Don’t let “metallic” in the description scare you; this little linen tee from J.Crew is absolutely lovely. I got this one on Thursday and wore to the office yesterday. The scoop neck and rounded hem keep it from looking boxy, and the fabric (at least on the “gunmetal” color) is opaque enough to wear alone. It’s on sale now, so even though I’ll feature in an outfit post soon, didn’t want you to miss out. (Also, try code SALETREAT for an additional 40% off.) Available in gold and navy metallic too.

For those who prefer a higher neck and 3/4 sleeves, this style is available in the gold and silver metallic.

I sized up one size for an easier fit.

    Love this t. I got it earlier this summer. It is sheer enough that it does need a nude bra, but you’re right, no under-tank required. Bonus: I totally spaced and put it through the dryer and it was fine.

    I like the fabric of this shirt a lot, but in my 60s the scoop neck no longer works for me. That expanse of (age-/genetics-related slightly saggy) skin from neck to chest, and the width of the scoop cut do not look good at all. It’s not a weight issue, I’m slender. It’s an aging flesh issue. That much skin just doesn’t look pretty on me, so I look for other neckline styles now. Does anyone else relate to this?

      I have a similar problem, but it’s the neck/chest. It’s the sleeve length on saggy, baggy upper arms. This sleeve just emphasizes the issue, For me, the 3/4 sleeve options are best.

        Ooops–neck/chest not the problem.

    I agree with Linda. It’s a lovely T but I am also in my 60s and although still in fairly good shape showing a lot of flesh in a deep scoop neck somehow no longer looks ok! I like J Crew Ts but an awful lot of them have very low necklines. Their boat neck long sleeve Ts are good for me though.

    I ran over and ordered a gold one. Long explanation, but I’m in need of a couple of gold items for the wardrobe next month and decided to give this a go…since it’s double-discounted. 😉 I’m planning to wear a tank or cami under it, so hopefully the low scoop won’t be too much of an issue. Haven’t tried J. Crew in probably 30 years; will be interesting to see how it fits. Crossing my fingers it’s a keeper.

    Thanks for telling us about this t. I just ordered it in grey. I can think of several pairs of pants in my closet that this should look very nice with.

    I also in my early 60’s and the deep neckline is a huge no for me as well. I look “ok-ish” but somehow to wear a low neckline screams look here! and no one wants an old cleavage…..sorry! Something does not fit with the shiny silver hair and low neck. Some of J crew is amazing cut out. If I get the regular neckline it is generous enough to be a tugged a small pull downward and not look to chopped up. Just enough neck and upper chest. I am fit and strong but my arms look like old lady upper arms. Something just happens. No sleeveless for me either. I still manage to look pretty dern cute with my accessories and super good jeans and great boots.

      For Susie and the others who prefer more coverage, here’s a style in the metallic linen with boatneck and 3/4 sleeves: http://bit.ly/1N2VdYX Also a very nice looking tee!

    I have this linen tee in non-metallic, but I like this version as well. I like a deep neckline with a short necklace. xo
