So when SmartPak recently launched a Piper T-shirt, I had to try it out. Here's a rundown on the newest Piper product.
Size: I ordered the t-shirt in a medium which seemed pretty true to size. The v-neck is cut just right, not too deep and not choking you out either. The t-shit has a longish cut so that it will stay tucked in, and while it's not advertised as a woman's cut, the t-shirt feels slightly fitted. My only complaint about the fit is that the opening for the arms is a tiny bit snug.
Fabric: I am not sure why SmartPak omitted this detail on their website, but the t-shirt is 65% polyester and 35% viscose, not cotton as I was expecting. I am glad it's not cotton though as I find cotton to be restrictive. I really like this fabric blend as the t-shirt has that broken in feel right away. It has a nice stretch to it without being clingy, but the fabric is pretty lightweight so it might not hold up past one summer's use. The fabric also has a slightly heathered look to it so it's not a solid color. I would definitely wear this t-shirt to work or out running errands.
Overall: this t-shirt is definitely worth the price tag. I am hard on my riding shirts though so I don't know if it will last more than one season, but at this price point, that's okay. I already ordered the black/gray t-shirt, and I'll get the blue jean color in a future order. I hope that SmartPak will come out with even more colors to coordinate with all the Piper Breeches.
