Today I went shopping to try on the new black microstripe CRB and see if the store had the new Ambition and Resolution Pullovers. The store didn't have the new pullovers but they had the new microstripe CRB, Power Y, and Scoop Neck tanks in addition to the Sailor Stripe jackets. I didn't like the black microstripe CRB on me as much as I thought I would. This summer I bought three tanks in the heathered coal wee stripe pattern so I thought I would love the black microstripe a lot, too, but thankfully for my wallet that wasn't the case. I might have liked it more if it had been edged in black. Also, the luon light in the microstripe felt thicker and stiffer than regular light luon and definitely not as soft as the heathered power purple mutistripe version. I find the CRBs a bit warm to work out in normally so having a heavier version won't work for me.The CRB also felt a tiny bit snugger than a normal solid colored CRB. I think the weave may not be as stretchy as regular light luon. I also tried on the microstripe Power Y which I liked better on me but I didn't feel the lust to own it so I was able to resist. I see from my product alerts that there is also a new black microstripe Push UR Limits but I didn't see it. I saw the new Sailor Stripe Define jacket but all the zippers are that small toothed shiny silver zipper so I didn't try it on. I think the pattern is a bit overwhelming for me anyway. Like many of you have reported, the sales girls told me they will have all the new colors on December 26th so I'll go back then to see the new pullovers.
I am liking this Push UR Limits
Black Microstripe Power Y
I wish the store had this to try on.
