Cobra Crop Photo, Modern Crew Neck Tee Two-Tone + More


The Cobra Crop has been spotted in stores.They look pretty cute even if they are $86.

 Modern Crew Neck Tee in Two-Tone


Here is a pair of Fireside Pants that are sized right, for a change. I still don't think I like them, though. The leg proportions are off somehow. They kind of remind me of stirrup pants. They'd be so much cuter with a wider leg. The super narrow ankle just makes the rear look bigger, even though this woman does not have a big rear. Maybe they should model it with boots, since they are supposedly narrow so you can tuck them into boots.



It looks like to get the Polocrosse pants to fit good in the backside, with no lines across the thigh, they have to be a little baggy in crotch. The above photo gives an idea how they look on a woman with curvy hips.

OTOH, these look too tight in both the front and back:

The Fireside pant looks like a Flashback pant on top. Basically I see 'loot' written all over them. It also looks like one would be stepping all over the back at the bottom.

Is the Cobra crop cotton or luon? I like the front - something different.

I wonder if the 'modern' tees will replace the pima tees, which have had issues b/c the fabric is so (too) delicate.

Houndlvr reminded me of the 'secret' shaped Scuba hoodies - I would love to try that out - a surprise upload of that would be awesome!

I can't believe they came out with Modern Crewneck. I have 5 pimas and just bought a white one(haven't even worn it yet). I bet there will be a white modern crewneck and I would have preferred that top over the 5yr pima. I hate when that happens. Maybe it won't come in white. I'm not a fan of the two tone color. There's nothing I'm interested in right now. I do want the run inspire pullover (I wish that would come out this week) but I really don't like anything that's out right now. I hope they come out with a Lolo Purple Stride and some Lolo tanks that are new.

I think the cobra crops look super cute on person. I wasn't impressed in the sneak peak, but I think I may be a convert now that I have seen them...

Got a notification that the Women's Running Baseball Cap are back in Purple Ombre Plaid/Black and Black. And a new running crop called Run : Fast Crop and also the eagle shorts.

camel toe warning next time! but, yes, the polocross pants do look MUCH better when they are the correct size, if a bit "baggy". seeing the sizing tag through the fabric is just too horrific. i can totally see someone who is a known horseback rider (or someone who wants to convey that image) wearing those (in the correct size) sporting the pants with boots. totally a pulled together look.

re: fireside. yeah, loot. totally. too narrow of an ankle. skinny jeans only work for so many people. same goes for "skinny sweats". and, at that price, they better freakin' rock! i agreee with anon @ 4:11 pm, i thought flashback pants, too. funny, wearing my flashback crops as I type. love 'em...especially at $19!

Duh - just noticed the 'luon' tag hanging from the Cobra crops. These are nice - doubt I'll buy as I don't wear crops too much and already have a couple pairs, but if they hit loot...

Totally agree...only so many people can wear the straight leg look. If you have any booty at all it is a no go...

Everything right now is so blah, ordinary etc... I have been buying older items on the exchange and ebay. Items produced during their more creative era.

You know why the fireside pants are ugly? Same reason the flashback crops are ugly - freakin' pockets! What's with the stupid bunchy pockets?

Canadian - eh said...

... oh yeah and I'm already sick of grey!!! Are there any patterns coming out soon or all solid prints?

Zanna said...

GEC says that they want to give us more neutrals but why stick to much shades of grey?? So unimaginative. They are getting lazier by the minute. Am sick of it too. Neutrals also means browns, khakis, army green etc. Didn't they just hire a new colorist? What's up with that?

The logo on the Fireside Pants is so tacky and the pants is so unflattering.

I've seen in a couple of your posts where you refer to and item being in the "hidden" section. What is that?

the cobra crops DO looks really cute on the model... I love the ruching at the waist band. $86 is kind of a lot if I'd just use them for casual wear though..?

modern tee is also cuter than I expected. I'd be sure to get one that was not white under the pits... regardless of how well i take care of them, white tops inevitably get gross pits at some point.

the fireside pant looks better on that model, though the picture should show a top naturally flowing over the top, not hiked up. Might make the bum look better. Still not for me though.

I agree the second set of polocrosse pants are way too tight!

Re: neutrals,
I know I've seen people request browns/tans/olive shades on facebook. Earth-tone neutrals would have been great for fall.

Those fireside pants remind me of soccer warm-ups I had back in the early 90s. Very retro.
