My Jet Crop Slims and Cool Racerback arrived. I’m quite happy with these Jet Crops because even though they were initially listed as being Luxtreme (corrected online this morning) they are actually Heathered luon and so they feel softer and have less sheen then they would have if they were luxtreme. I passed on the black luxtreme Jet Crop Slims when I saw them in Seattle a few weeks ago because I didn’t care for the shine on the material. These fit TTS – if you sized down in the regular Jet Crops you don’t need to size down in the Slims as they are narrow to the leg and pretty much a different cut altogether.
The Pistachio Cool Racerback is lovely, but if you are worried about brightness or neon I’d call this color closer to a bright lime than Pistachio. It is maybe a touch less vibrant than lime but thats it. It’s very pretty in person though and thick and opaque so if you are thinking about getting it once it hits stores (sold out online in Canada within 30 minutes) I’d jump on it first and then decide.
*I’ve added Frond Green as a color comparison
Here are some color comparisons in natural light against a neutral background. I pulled out all my greens except Green Been and Savage because those are too different on the green scale to be useful but if you’d like to see that let me know
I was surprised at how muted Menthol is next to it. Menthol is a top lulu favourite for me so I have it in Heathered and Solid. I actually love these colors next to each other.
Antidote was really different. Much darker and yellower.
The closest I’d say is Clear Mint but it is a lot paler than Pistachio by a long shot. If you have the Wild Lime Cool Racerback from a few years ago and you got this Pistachio I’d love to see those two colors compared.
All the colors together.
A reader suggested a comparison to Frond Green and I remembered I have this Free To Be Tank on my sell pile (ignored for a long time) and although it’s luxtreme and has a different sheen it’s a really good comparison. The colors are pretty similar actually but Frond has more yellow and is more saturated. They are noticeably different but I was surprised that Frond was actually a closer reference than Clear Mint.
