OT - Black Swiftly Racerback is on the US side. I bought it today in Chicago.
Nothing appealing to me. The jacket reminds me of the Travel to Track Jacket. At least they tried to improve it but it's still not for me. And while the Travel jacket did not work for me, it was exceptionally well made and thoughtfully made, that I do recall.http://www.luluaddict.com/2012/03/photos-travel-to-track-jacket.html
Are the "true self" crops that you posted about earlier this week in US stores? My local store looked at me with a blank stare when asked about them.
OMG @ anon4:41 pm - thank you!!!! I just ordered it. I totally forgot to take a look for it when I checked out WMTM yesterday.
I'm totally over the flat in the front and poofy in the back jackets. It might just be because I'm short, but they look awful on me. Tried on a pair of Seek the Heat crops tonight and fell in love with them.
@LLA - You're welcome! I didn't see it online yesterday and you said it is in US stores, so being impatient, I stopped at only of my stores this afternoon and found it. I recall you mentioning wanting one as well as others so thought I would pass on the stealth upload. =)
I think I am trying to understand the desire for the black swiftly tanks and shirts... I don't get it.
If those shorts are like the Hottie Hots (NOT the long version) re: inseam and waistband, they might be up my ally. Speeds don't cut it (too much fabric between the legs), and the Make a Move shorts are out in my size. Fingers crossed :)
@Anon 4:41 Thank you! I have been randomly checking, hoping it would show up. Now, I'm crossing my fingers that it ships from the East Coast and I get it before I leave for the WDW Star Wars Dark Side races on Thursday.
@ Anonymous 6:22pm - I don't the whole scrambling for a black swiftly either. I don't get it. I guess when I run the LAST color I want to wear on top is solid dark black (talk about overheating :P ) so I see that and go "nope".
So I bought the cool to street high times and I really like them, but it seems like they're EXACTLY like the seek the heat crops, aside from a small difference in length. Does anyone else see a difference between the two?
Hi Anon 6:22pm & 3:12pm I will explain why I bought the black s/s swiftly. First of all it's a solid colour with no heathering to take away from the true deep colour and also a solid colour with no pattern. I love my swiftlies and wear them all the time and this will be a great addition to my collection that consists of all heathered and two tones colours.I think the dark solid black is going to look great with my Deep Zinfandel crops and my DZ & white Street To Studios and I am looking forward to wearing it with my Vintage Pink Run Times. On a more shallow reason, wearing black looks good with a tan. I only buy colours that will work with my current LLL wardrobe and this will be a wonderful addition and I know I will get a lot of wear out of it.
Doing a side by side in google image and they look exactly alike.
ANon 8:03. Makes sense, I was just curious. Can i ask why the swiftly tank is more popular than the black CRB? I don't own any swiftly tanks but have many many CRBs. I don't like the look of the swiftly's, feels too much like I am advertising for Lulu but it does have me thinking maybe they fit better?
@ anon 8:03 I will second your reasons. It's so rare for LLL to come out with a thin, soft stretchy swiftly with beautiful colour saturation and NO stupid pattern. AND in a generic colour that matches pretty much everything you have. I bought all 3, LS, SS and tank as I know I will wear the crap out of them. For me, I couldn't be hot in this type of swiftly if I tried for dark shade is a non issue. @ LLA, I am hoping for surprise goodies as well since nothing from this line is of interest. I did see new cyber times paired with the all Kayak blue FTBW bra that was released last week on the Cad website and they look like they have potential. Pretty much exactly like the silver fox ones with with gorgeous colour.
Also if you sweat a lot - solid black is a perfect color to help hide the wetness.The black tank will be my new go-to shirt for half and full marathons. ;)
I admit you guys are selling me on the black LOL. If Canada's upload looks anything like Australia's today then I might try a black swiftly!
For me, the Swiftly is a much lighter fabric, while still being somewhat fitted (but not too tight). So many of the lighter fabrics are a loose fit. And I do like those, to an extent. But I sometimes prefer to have something more fitted with certain running shorts/skirts. Also, my black CRB is thicker. I don't wear CRBs for running when it's warm/hot outside. It is just too thick of a fabric for me to like against my skin. I do love CRBs when it isn't as hot OR as a basic tank for non-athletic activity. I am always on the search for a lightweight black running tank because black matches every pair bottoms I own.
Hi Anon 2:34pm, I bought the black Swiftly s/s not the tank but I agree with Anon 9:12pm that swiftly fabric is much lighter than CRB fabric. Swift fabric wicks away moisture and is a great fabric for running and getting sweaty. I usually size up one size just so that it isin't too snug on me and I get an additional 1" in length which I like. Love my Swiftlies!!!
I also find that I can wear clack swiftly's for other occasions too, not jsut work out. put a cardigan on top of it and you have a really nice top.
