Abercrombie & Fitch’s “Tie” Payton tee is just so damn cute! I know this is another tangent post from J.Crew, but once in a while my eyes just uncontrollably wander. Well, I found Payton on sale for only $16, so I snagged it. I have to say, ever since I got lured back into A&F by the Dawn skirt, I keep getting drawn back. I was so impressed by the cuteness and quality of the last batch of A&F stuff and that impression definitely continues with the Payton tee. When I first felt it, I was genuinely surprised by how high quality it felt. Very substantial, heavy, and super soft cotton. 10000x more high quality feeling than the J.Crew slub cotton tees I just bought for $30 a pop (but I justify that purchase by convincing myself slub cotton is supposed to be very thin…right??).
I pulled it on and it was so comfortable and cut long! That’s such a surprise. I don’t remember the last time I got a tee from J.Crew or BR that was cut, as the default standard, below the hips. I absolutely love that about Payton, as length is what I seek in all my basic tees and tanks. How much do I love this tee? As soon as I threw it on, I started looking for more A&F tees to bring home. Seriously. This could be the beginning of a new addiction…
How cute is this tee paired with J.Crew’s Poplin Wednesday skirt? Anyway, only one tiny flaw I see with this tee. The tee graphic tends to pucker a teensy bit from where the girls kind of stretch out the tee. Oops. Not sure how I can fix that.
This tee is currently sold out online (I think it’s from a previous season?), but you can keep checking the online clearance section here.
