Kind of a silly review, but I feel like writing a review and this is what I got today. I ordered the Magaschoni Black Henley Top from Rue La La last week, and it arrived yesterday exactly the day the confirmation email told me to expect it. It arrived via DHL which I thought was curious, most things come via UPS or Fedex ground.

Anyway, I wasn't familiar with the label when I ordered the shirt, but it looked like it would be flattering and I suspected it would be very comfortable.

I was right on both counts. The shirt is long enough to hit me at a flattering length around my high hip, the dropped 3/4 length sleeves de-emphasize my broad shoulders, and it is really soft.

I like the deconstructed look of the reversed unfinished seams, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. But the fabric itself is what really "makes" the shirt.

I'm pretty egalitarian when it comes to clothing, I'll wear all kinds of different brands. Just because something is expensive doesn't mean it will be more flattering, more durable, or more in style. But I've found it usually does mean it will be made with better quality materials and better workmanship. Which often translates into "more comfortable". For me, comfort generally isn't the highest priority for clothes (which is flattering fit and coordination with other items in my wardrobe), but everything has to be comfortable "enough".

However, I admit I made this purchase with comfort on my mind, and I'm delighted to report that I'm very satisfied. In the future, I will look for the Magaschoni label when shopping for knit tops when I want something a little bit quirky, flattering, and comfortable. And when they're on sale--I think the list price on this thing was $98 and that's just crazy since it's not $90 better than an $8 shirt. But it is quite a few times better than an $8 shirt, so there's the value.
