Liz Claiborne New York Essentials Long Sleeve Waffle T-Shirt
Stretches out but not back.
I love waffle weave and liked the thinner version of this material as it would allow me to layer without getting too hot. But the material has no elasticity, so it stretches out, and stays stretched out, returning.
I did love this top when I received it. But when I washed it, the length shrunk several inches. I did not even put it in the dryer and I washed it on gentle, cold.
This shirt SHRINKS!!!
I purchased three of these shirts. I just washed the first one. I can't believe how much it shrunk! And I didn't even put it in the dryer. The length shrunk a good 4" and the sleeves shrunk a good 3". When I originally received them I almost returned them because they were too big. Now it JUST fits. I might keep the one I washed but think the other 2 are going back. This is my last Liz purchase.
The clearance price is great and the trick of this top is its simplicity. I'm using it as the comfortable top for the gym, the knock around at home top, and maybe using it with a vest for outings. I like the fit, I got it in a medium knowing it might shrink and I don't like things tight. It's comfortable with the neck opening not too big. Colors/sizes are dis- appearing so others obviously like it too.
I BOUGHT THIS TOP IN RED AND BLACK - LOVE LOVE!!!!!
TODAY I ORDERED ANOTHER BLACK ONE - CAN'T HAVE ENOUGH
BLACK TOPS WHEN THEY FIT PERFECT. I REALLY WANTED THE GREEN BUT
OF COURSE I WAS TOO LATE. PLEASE GET MORE GREEN
From too long to too short after wash
This is thinner than an average thermal, but warmer than a regular tee shirt. The colors are great (I bought 3) and while it was oversized (I ordered an XXS), it shrunk considerably when washed. I bought it to be a night shirt and now it is a day shirt with slightly shorter than ideal sleeves.
For less than $18.00, it was okay, but don't put it in the dryer if you like the size.
My constant rant, LCNY is getting too oversized and much too long!
I agree with other reviewers that the fabric is very thin. I wear a DDD bra so I always buy an XL...but the XL is very big and the sleeves are very long. This is the kind of shirt I will wear around the house...but defnitely not to work on casual Fridays. Too slouchy.
Thinner than expected.
I like the colors ordered. Tried one on, and seemed to fit ok. After washing?
Was thinner in texture, so we'll see.
Simple & cute
A very simple but nice tee, I bought because I liked the sunset orange and was happy to find it was exactly as shown online, more of a salmon shade than orange, nice color.
can't figure the sizes out
I gave this four stars because I do like the quality of LCNY but the sizing is different, so I had to return. The first time I ordered LCNY tshirts the on screen sizing said 38 was med. so I ordered med, way too big, so returned, so this time the on screen said the same thing so I ordered the small, Way too big, So next time I'll try the xsmall and see what happens. I am petite but the shirt was way past the hips and the sleeves down past the finger tips by a good 2-3 inches. Simply to big to alter. So hopefully I'll figure this out in the future.
Right on - Love the colors
I went by the chart and ordered the size I needed 2X and it was perfect. I'm not fat, just thick muscular. I ordered Pine Green on wait list, but I got the Mulberry, Blue and the Orange color. Not sure about the orange color with my coloring. I know wish I would have ordered the Red and Black, its not heavy but will be great for fall, I don't like heavy material I want to be able to breath and not get hot. This will work great with Vest. Very Happy with this purchase, i'm glad I went ahead and ordered I didn't know because of the other 2 reviews. But I'm Happy with my purchases.
Yes, just average
I do like the waffle weave. Why oh why does the Q offer tops that have scooped necks in a fabrication that is clearly meant for cooler weather? Washed it and it did shrink even though I dried flat. Ordered WAY up to account for that possibility, though. It was really the color I was wanting, so satisfied with that part. I agree with some other reviewers of Liz items on the Q - the quality is no where close to what the Liz line used to be in high end department stores. So don't be fooled... A sad reality.
