*The linen joggers were received as a gift for review, the silk v-neck cropped tee was purchased
Hi guys, so it's officially busy season here at GoSilver, so I apologize in advance if I'm slow to comment back on posts, on Instagram, and replying via email. Also I'll try my best to keep up with blogging and the reviews! Well unfortunately since it took me so long to finally write the review on this Grana silk v-neck cropped tee, it's no longer being sold. So I decided I might as well combine it with the review of these linen joggers, also from Grana, which are still available (and they have a pair now with stripes too).
So a quick review of the silk v-neck cropped tee first. I purchased it around the same time as I did their silk v-neck cropped tank (review here). And out of the two I prefer the tank better than the tee here because the tee is a bit of an odd fit. The shoulders are quite a bit more snug and prevents a full range of motion. Also the v-neck of the tee feels way bigger than the tank. I purchased both in the small size. The one benefit of the tee over the tank though is that the sleeves on the tee here covers my chicken wings (the tricep area), making the arm look slimmer.
As for the linen joggers, like I said before I'm not a huge fan of joggers in general. But I'm always in the market for great linen pants so I definitely wanted to give them a try. Compared to the Elizabeth Suzann linen Tilda pants (review here) Grana's linen pants are made from a much thinner linen than the ES ones. I also feel like the Grana ones wrinkle a lot more easily as well. But I am a fan of the pockets on these Grana joggers (which the ES ones don't have). I also like that these Grana linen joggers has an elastic waistband with a drawstring so that you can also cinch it tighter if need be.
I ordered these in a medium and they fit alright. It was a tad snug in the thighs and a tad too long (hence the bunching at the ankles). Anyway, like I said I'm not a huge fan of joggers so I'm not sure how much I would actually wear this. My dream linen pants from Grana would be linen pants made in their silk ankle pants style. Alas the search for my perfect linen pants continues.
