Close Up of Split Pea Weave Stripe Cool Racerback


I think this color will be a tough one for a lot of people to carry off well. However,I like the purple matched with the Split Pea.

Looks like a flush bag in the background.

Hmmm, I never would have thought about pairing purple with the Split Pea green...
I kind of like it too.

ooh! I hope I can swing this color! I really like it up close plus I dig the contrast stitching down the side. I'd like to see pictures of it paired with both the wren and coal DSCs.... wonder if the wren would be too much green??

yuck, sorry don't like this color. Maybe it looks better in person, just don't think it will work for many people.

i got this crb in my local store today. it looks much better in person. it is more on yellow side vs green. i think it will be too much if paired with new dsp color. looks great with any neutral solid crops/pants

Ugh, split pea reminds me of that scene from the Exorcist. :p

I like this color, but throwing the super dark contrast on it makes it look man-ish. Gross.

Which store are these photos from? I swear I saw a posting on some local store's FB page -- I think it was with these photos, or some similar photo featuring this split pea CRB -- where a customer then asked what fabric this CRB is and the educator's response was it was the "same great luon that it always is". That drove me bananas and I wanted to respond but I can't find where I read it!!! I hate when "educators" say lump it all together as luon, because it's NOT all the same fabric. The fabric content varies:
- regular luon is 87% nylon 13% lycra
- microstripe luon is 56% nylon 32% polyester 12% lycra
- the coal strata stripe luon is 50% nylon 37% polyester 13% lycra
- I can't find the tag for my pique item right now but pique has rayon in it, which is why it is so soft

...the point being, the different fabric content makes the different items feel and wear differently. Some fabrics are softer, warmer to the touch, or snag more easily. I can't stand the way Lululemon (website, educators) doesn't disclose the fabric content anywhere but on the garment tag itself. As if it's some secret sauce recipe or something... or maybe that's how they see it?
