When I reviewed Grana's linen boyfriend shirt back in August, blog reader Lauren left a comment that Grana had just recently revamped (and raised the price) of their linen boyfriend shirts. So this review of Grana's linen boyfriend shirt 2.0 is for you Lauren, and sorry it's so late (I mean it's pretty much autumn already, lol). BUT, I have to confess I never really wear linen and so I sold the first linen shirt on Slowre so unfortunately I will have to rely a bit on memory (and my old review) for comparison.
So one of the first differences I noticed about Grana's new linen is that this linen seems a bit thinner than their old linen boyfriend shirts. Thus this white linen shirt is a bit sheer (you can pretty much see the outline of my nude bra). I also noticed that Grana's new linen is no longer made by Baird McNutt like their old version, which probably accounts for the difference in the feel of the linen. I would say their new linen feels softer but is that because it's thinner than the old linen? But overall I can't actually say that the quality of their new linen is better.
On the other hand, I can say that the fit of the new linen shirts are better. I again ordered a small like last time and even though the fit was a bit large, I wasn't swimming in the shirt like last time. In general I liked this shirt well enough and so I plan to keep it until next summer and see if I can put it to good use (in my head I've already moved on to sweater weather planning).
