I should have sent the shirt back immediately and give Chance a chance to redeem themselves. Possibly, the tee was a one-off defective item, but I was too lazy to bother with it. OK, maybe I did not want to admit that I felt duped, so I convinced myself that I kept it because I liked the colors and the fabric (I do) and that a wonky seam was a part of its charm (hey, who is snorting here?).
The color is perfect with my Madewell Academy blazer (reviewed HERE).
I said it repeatedly but I love, love, love this blazer (my nod goes to the lovely Rynetta). I never liked the J.Crew Schoolboy fit and I thought it was because of its shrunken shape, but this one is even more shrunken and it does not bother me.
I think it is the proportions and the way how Madewell blazer is nipped in the waist, while J.Crew Schoolboy is very boxy on me. I also like that the wool is thinner, shoulder padding is minimal and I have no problem wearing it under my coat or in the office.

After all, maybe that Chance tee was not such a disaster...
That's all folks!
Do you have a favorite navy blazer?
Did you ever feel totally duped by clever online marketing?
Please share it would be no fun without you!!!
