Brushed Grooves and Pique Vs. Herringbone

A reader had a question on Pique vs. Herringbone. This is a photo of the new brushed luon grooves (the inside is roughed up a little so it feels a little thicker/warmer). The waistband shows the pique on the top and the herringbone is on the bottom. I have both the pique and herringbone Skinny Will pants. I find them both cozily warm. I might give the nod to the herringbone for being a tiny bit warmer/windproof. Both are super soft. I find the pique stretchier and probably a little less robust since my pique wills have some pilling in the crotch area and my herringbone do not.

I have a pique WUP from a few seasons ago, it was so comfy and warm, my fav pants in the winter time. But I was so stupid to decide to cut it into a crop, coz I feel crops can be worn in spring, summer and fall instead of only winter. I only hope they release another batch of pique WUP so I can repurchase it again.

I love the herring bone. I bought from Ivivva both a scarf in that same fabric and the a grey micro fleece hoody that has the herring bone fabric in the cuffs and the band at the bottom of the waist. Very cute and soft!

My bottoms in Herringbone, my tops in Pique. That's what I like.

@8:33 I agree my brushed grooves are worn almost everyday. They are so cozy for Canada! I also scored a brushed define years ago. My favorite go-to outfit.
