J.Crew Boatneck Painter Tee review

jcrew boatneck painter tee in pale blossom

I got this when they were marked down, in "Pale Blossom."

Hermmm...this shirt reminds me of a guy you like, who isn't particularly wealthy, not widely regarded as hunky, yet there's something about him that drives you crazy.

I mean it's not a great shirt by objective standards. 'Crew ditched the raw edge in the neckline, but the seams are not fabulously finished; the material is sheer-ish (not to the point you'd need a camisole). The neckline dips a bit too much in front for a boatneck, is a bit too wide to truly cover bra straps. You don't get straps in your face, just a slight edge either side. It strikes me you'd need a specific shoulder size to pull this off; small or wide shoulders might not work. And it's a bit tight on the bust.

Still, I couldn't wait to wear it. It's hardly a winter top, not the kind of material I'd normally wear to work...but, it's great. It's just right. Pale Blossom is a lovely very pale pink. Were the shirt a more substantial cotton, it probably wouldn't's the sheerness (again without being horribly sheer), the sublime color and boatneck that all add up to "more than a tee."
