The Running Baseball hat is back! It is offered in Purple Ombre Plaid/Black and Black. As soon as I find a photo of the plaid I will post it. I really like the baseball cap. It doesn't have any mesh venting so I don't know how cool it will be for exercise but for hiding bed head as you drop the kids to school, it's awesome.

Eagle Short
The Eagle Short is showing up under Accessories - is it a volleyball short? It was one of those hidden items. I have the price as being $48. Here is a description from one of my PAs: Low rise, short short, designed to perform for you in hot classes so you're focusing on your practice and not your shorts

One of my Product Alerts used a photo of a Lolo Purple Free To Be bra, so we know it'll be coming:

Cobra Crop Photo, Modern Crew Neck Tee Two-Tone + More

The Cobra Crop has been spotted in stores.They look pretty cute even if they are $86.

 Modern Crew Neck Tee in Two-Tone

Here is a pair of Fireside Pants that are sized right, for a change. I still don't think I like them, though. The leg proportions are off somehow. They kind of remind me of stirrup pants. They'd be so much cuter with a wider leg. The super narrow ankle just makes the rear look bigger, even though this woman does not have a big rear. Maybe they should model it with boots, since they are supposedly narrow so you can tuck them into boots.

It looks like to get the Polocrosse pants to fit good in the backside, with no lines across the thigh, they have to be a little baggy in crotch. The above photo gives an idea how they look on a woman with curvy hips.

OTOH, these look too tight in both the front and back:

Change "We Made Too Much" Back to "Loot"

Okay, I hate the "We Made Too Much" name change for the Loot section. Why did you change this? It acknowledges that you misjudged the market for your goods - not a good thing. "Loot" was quirky, fun, and kind of like a code-word among people-in-the-know. It implied a deal for us, without admitting any errors in judgment in manufacturing on your part. WMTM is so ordinary, dull, un-inspired. Who told you that the "Loot" name was problematic in the first place? Consider changing it back.

Upload Thursday Wishes

Pintuck Wunder Unders

What is everyone looking for in tomorrow's upload? Since there haven't been any photos of new items this week, I'm thinking the upload will have the Recharge Tank, the Cross Train Pullover, Polocrosse pant, the Track and Field Jackets, Free to Be bra, maybe the solid colored Scuba Hoodies. As usual, I am hoping for something we haven't seen before.
