My Destination for Stripes – Chance

Jun 25, 2013

Part of my capsule wardrobe in the summer is the classic navy and white stripe long-sleeve top. And it was last year when Julia Leach launched her online clothing company Chance that I fell in love with her concept – focusing on simplicity, quality design, adventure and personal style. After purchasing the classic boat neck stripe top (seen above), I wore it out wearing it incessantly. Consequently I purchased three this year to make sure I always had one on hand.

While stripes are the foundation of her business (found on short-sleeve tees, camis, dresses, etc), she also offers many other summer essentials, but one can never go wrong with stripes. Shop here.

  1. Hi -Can you comment on sizing for the Chance shirts? I feel intimidated by their (no) return policy. Would the shirt look bad if I ordered a size too large? I am a small person but confused by the ever-shrinking size syndrome. Should I order a medium? 36-25-39
    Thank you an advance.

    1. For the classic boatneck Greece top (which is seen in all the images above), they recommend ordering one size larger. Take them up on this advice. I typically order a medium, but the top you see above is a Large. I have purchased a large each time and it fits perfectly – not loose. And after washing, it will shrink back up. Now in their cotton tops – order your normal size as they don’t have the recommendation of ordering up or as much stretch. I hope this helps.

  2. I recently ordered a Chance Co shirt, and I was immediately disappointed in the quality. The material is very thin, and for some reason the sleeves get very stretched out. I don’t see this shirt lasting very long. If Chance didn’t have a no return policy, I definitely would have returned it.

    1. I am sorry to hear about your experience. Yes, the boat necks are thinner cotton, but the thick stripe, crew neck tops are a very sturdy, yet soft cotton that I love. Thank you for sharing your experience.
