If you've been following along with my Summer 10x10 challenge, you would have seen me pair this Everlane linen muscle tank with my Elizabeth Suzann linen Clydes for a very SF Giants fan look. This is actually my first time wearing this tank because, well color! It's almost too much color for my usual taste but when I first tried it on at the Everlane store I really liked it (see pics below). I especially like how the orange (well they call it "rust" but really it's quite orange) goes with denim of different hues. It works for both dark and light denim.
I sized up to a medium in this because I found the small to be quite fitted. And though the arm holes are a tad big, it doesn't really bother me. The 100% linen is a great lightweight knit which breathes really well. It's a tad scratchy at first but will soften with washings. It will also stretch out a tad with washings (which I learned from my Everlane linen knit dress from awhile back), but unlike the dress I don't think this muscle tank will lose too much of its shape since there's less material overall. I think the dress became a little potato-sack-y after awhile because the dress stretched in odd places. The best way to keep the shape is probably to lay flat to dry instead of hanging.
What do you guys think? Anyone else try out their linen knit items this year? I might not wear this as often because of the color but at least I know what I'm wearing the next time I go to a SF Giants game!
