Brave Olive CRB II vs. Fatigue CRB. The Fatigue CRB looks rather gray here.

 The Brave Olive Swiftly vs. the Brave Olive CRB II. I ordered all three swiftly types - the tank, SS, and LS and decided to keep the SS. I found the sleeves on the LS a bit itchy and the tank is shorter compared to the other two versions. I wouldn't mind normally but since the design doesn't go all the way to the bottom I thought it cut me in half too much. I'm also returning the CRB II because I didn't like it on me.

Thank you, Luluaddict for your review of all three olive swiftlys. That answers my question as I have not been up to buying much from Lululemon like the days of the past. Your photo comparison are tell-all. Bottom line: If I buy any, it will be the olive s/s swiftly only regardless of the gorgeous rich green color -- I can't live with constant scratch.

LuluAddict, when you say that you don't like the CRBII on you, do you mean the colour or the actual tank itself? Just curious because I was thinking of getting the Brave Olive CRBII... I have the Super Purple and True Red ones and don't mind them... just not sure of the Brave Olive colour... I ordered the Swiftly Short Sleeve and Long Sleeve, as well as the TaTa Tamer all in Brave Olive and thought I'd wait and see if I like the colour of them first before ordering the CRBII. The CRBII looks quite a bit different in colour compared with the Swiftly... not sure I like it though... But going by your photos above I think I'm at least going to like the Swiftlies in Brave Olive! Should be getting them by Tuesday or Wednesday. Thanks so much for sharing!

Oh! and I forgot to add, I think all the Swiftly Tanks are shorter than the Short Sleeves and Long Sleeves are...

I need the LS when it hits the UK.

Thank you!! This color comparison attracts me to Brave Olive since I have hazel eyes. I wish the old CRB came in this color. Boo Hoo.

@ anon 5:47 pm - I meant the color. I like the color on the Swiftly better.

I like this color and I look good I it, but I bought Gator Green and rarely wear it bc I don't have much that coordinates with it. The higher price hikes make me hesitant to buy anything now.

It's 5:31 again. Oh, I am glad you like the color of the Brave Olive swiftly better, LLA. That makes me less sad about missing out on the CRB; I personally dislike the cut of the CRB 2. I will just get the SS based on your recommendation. Thanks again.

I thought I would love the Olive Green when I first saw pictures of it but IRL I just didn't love it enough to buy it. I really liked the Desert Green out a while back but not much was made in that colour so I didn't get anything. I really do like the print in the Olive Swiftlies and hope we see more of this print in other colours.

On another note, I returned my Rush Hour 1/2 zip today. I was going to keep the tags on for two weeks and see if something else came out I liked more. Instead I decided that if it goes on WMTM I would buy it but if it doesn't go on WMTM I am fine not having it. Odds are these days that almost everything ends up on WMTM so I am training myself not to buy right away especially if I am not in love with it.

I purchased the black olive LS Swiftly. The colour is gorgeous and always works for me (goes with my hazel eyes). I don't find the sleeves itchy or irritating at all. I bought the LS because it is Fall. If I'm only going to buy one version of this colour Swiftly due to the price, LS was the best option and in theory, I have enough of the SS.

Off topic but did anyone notice they added the original boogie short back online?!

I preferred the CRB in Brave Olive over the Swiftly tank and I really disliked the long sleeve. The long sleeve Swiftly BO I tried on had 3 snags in it already and it was so thin and scratchy. I tried on the black LS and the quality was SO much better. The BO CRB definitely has a more "yellow" tone to it but I thought the colour was so rich and unlike anything else I have I couldn't pass it up.

@ anon 9:36 am - That is how I am with my Fatigue CRB -the tags are still on. At least the Brave Olive Swiftly has black flecks in it so looks nice with black pants.

@ anon 2:00 pm - Yeah, I'll keep an eye on how the stock looks in the stores and on line. If it shows full across all sizes I'll probably return and hope to get on WMTM. The only issue is sometimes the 12s are gone before things move to WMTM.

I think this is a really hit or miss color with people. I really want to love it, but why am I trying to talk myself into a shirt so much? It does not look good on me, but I think it could look great on someone with different coloring.

AliSwanson: That's just it. I put this colour against my face and grimaced from the effect it made on me. I'm blond, blue eyed and pale- this yellowish hue looked like puke on me. But it might be a good colour for someone else.
