I know my upload post from Tuesday was pretty ranty but it turns out my items are winners afterall. The Kanto Catch Me Tank in Menthol is stunning in person and incredibly soft and thick. Amazing RULU and my absolute favourite color in a solid without a stripe or pattern. WIN! I was telling Lulu Addict the other night that I went ahead and ordered it because it checked the box of 1. Nice solid saturated color in a color I love, 2. a RULU run pullover in a streamlined design 3. Flattering design. I think I was stuck on hoping for a solid Menthol Tuck And Flow LS or some design that I gravitate to more than the design of the Kanto but I’m so glad I ordered this one anyways. It’s a beauty! The only ‘issue’ with it is that there is some dye staining on it from where it came folded. There are some streaks of darker menthol down the middle of the chest and down one of the arms but I’m pretty certain that the dye will disperse once it’s been washed. I have a CRB that came like this before and after washing it it was fine. I’m so looking forward to pairing this long sleeve with my Alberta Lake Fluffed Up Vest.

You can sort of see the dye leach stripe in this shot.
Drop It Like It’s Hot Tank – TTS 10
I really, really love this tank. I especially love it in black but I really like it in Menthol too. I got this tank primarily to wear to Crossfit but I also had an eye to wearing it casually in the warmer months. Some readers had mentioned that this tank looks a bit short in the front and I agree that it definitely is shorter than a CRB and I wish it had been slightly longer since I have a really tall torso on my short frame. That said, I can definitely live with it this length as it’s still well over my hips. This is a looser fitting TTS but it’s not overly baggy, it just floats away from your body. The neckline is also a touch low and loose but I think if you sized down in it you wouldn’t get that pretty blousy look in the side and back. I really love the way the mesh pleat in the back drapes. Love this tank and will consider the other two colors if they ever go on markdown.
