Sneak Peek: Tunic Shirts A268129

red shirt1

 

………………..Coming  November 13th on FEW, which starts at 6:00am……The RED TUNIC SHIRT……A268129……..just in time for the Holidays, and what a beautiful splendid RED it is. This RED is neither orange nor blue…..it is a pure RED. It is not as bright as my photos, and is actually a bit deeper, but so beautiful!…………………..I have referenced the “Robyn Shirt” before….and, this shirt is closer to the original than any other….however, there are differences………..This new version is numerically sized, and is approx 30 inches for the size 4…There are side slits to this shirt for a more relaxed fit…..It has a WING COLLAR that many of you have grown to love from the cotton wing collar shirt….It frames the face beautifully, and looks good both folded over or popped up, and when you pop it up…it stays POPPED!…..This shirt also has a working…..FRENCH CUFF…..The shirt comes with a set of LINEA SIGNATURE GOLD CUFF LINKS. These were designed and made specifically for this shirt….. If you wish to change the cuff links with some heirloom ones you may have……that can easily be done…perhaps some diamond cuff links for a more formal affair…….Wear this with the RUBY SEQUIN SKIRT, A238538, for up coming Holiday Galas……There is nothing like mixing a tailored shirt with a sequin skirt…..a timeless always sophisticated look…..for a woman who knows….The shirt is approx 30 inches long for the size 4…..yes, it is numerically sized……..The shirt has side slits, and a straight bottom………This shirt is all about the COUTURE FABRIC. The fabric is a POLY/SPAN blend, and is VERY SIMILAR to the A267880, HIGH/LOW hemmed shirt that many of you bought and LOVE in the Alabaster, Black and Blue……..Though it is still substantial, and has a similar hand, it is not the same. If you loved the  high low shirt fabric….you are going to adore this one……..As with the A267880, you can wear it as a shirt or SHIRT JACKET. I have layered the shirt with my A72448, Ivory WK TN, and a pair of vintage Ivory crepe pants……….To complete the look I have added my SIGNATURE NECKLACES, J320468, my SIGNATURE EARRING, J320884, and my SIGNATURE CHARM BRACELET, J325470, all of which coordinate with the signature cuff link…….but all of your Linea necklaces will work beautifully…..from your graduated beads…..you palm frond and fish necklaces when spring arrives……you just have to play…. The shirt tunic is perfect with LEGGINGS, TROUSERS, LONG SLIM SKIRTS, and PENCIL SKIRTS. I am sure you will enjoy wearing this shirt for years to come…..a true timeless piece…………………………………………..enjoy……………………….much Love……………………………….Louis

……………………….This is the PERFECT IVORY TUNIC SHIRT…….and I don’t say that lightly! I chose this fabric because I wanted to make this shirt in IVORY, and it had to look RICH!! Many times a shirt will look great in COLORS, but the white or IVORY version is disappointing………..NOT this one!!…………………..The tunic length……the wing collar……..the french cuff………and the princess seaming………combined make one fabulous shirt………………..Wear it anyway you like……day or night, casual [my pull-on tuxedo Linea Leisure pant or leggings] or dressed up with a killer sequin skirt….there are still some avail in red and blue, A238538….perfect for the Holidays…….I can’t think of a more perfect shirt tunic to wear all year long for any and all occasions………..The BIG question is……do you want more than one in IVORY?…………It’s worth saying again…..This is the PERFECT IVORY TUNIC SHIRT!……This is a MUST HAVE……………………..enjoy…………………………much Love…………………………………Louis

……………………..The third and last color being offered in this new tunic shirt is………………BLUE……………..and it is a clear PRIMARY BLUE. It is not purple or green……just pure blue. This is a season-less shirt/jacket, and can be worn just as easily in the spring and summer as in the fall and winter…………..Ivory, white, black, grey and navy are all perfect bottom colors to this Blue tunic……..With this blue shirt I have accessorized with the ALL SILVER and the SILVER/GOLD combination signature necklaces, J320468, and the gold signature earring, J320884 and charm bracelet, J325470…….This is a beautifully tailored shirt! Due to the fabric, it is very  fluid and has a soft drape…………This is an easy care fabric….perfect for travel……perfect with a pair of jeans for a more casual outing or “dress casual” party…. or dressed up with a skirt slim pants and heels for when the need for something a little more formal arises……Above, the slim pant in Navy……………………………………………………..enjoy……………………….much Love………………………Louis

Elegant and classic--doesn't get much better. Love the French cuffs & signature buttons that will match up with the sig jewelry I own. Although, I have a beautiful pair of family cuff links I can use, too. Great excuse to break them out of the jewelry box for holiday events. 

 

The ivory and red will be in my cart!

These long shirts don't work for me.  I'm a size 18, short waisted and (let's just say I have a good platform to sit on....and wide).

 

The breast area is too big (gotta cover those hips).  I can't wait until the style goes back to shorter tops.

Re: Sneak Peek: Tunic Shirts A268129

My migraine is just too much this morning - sorry - just can't get through all of those fragmented sentences.

 

Question:  Fabric type of this shirt is what?

 

The reason I ask is that I made the mistake during a LR show about 8 years ago of purchasing two gorgeous shirts, turq and butter yellow, but they ended up being high, high, high maintenance, due to fabric content.

 

Would really appreciate knowing about the fabric.

sfnative, you are so right.  I've called QVC during a presentation asking for the size, inches, etc.  I've had to "pull teeth" so to speak to find out the type of garmet.

 

Most of the hosts don't tell you if it has any stretch, etc.  That can definitely make a diffence.

 

Drives me crazy when most of the viewing time is spent on the Host and the representative (not the models).

 

I've caught myself actually (I can't believe I'm admitting this) moving my hand trying to get past them to the models.

Hi Annabellethecat,

 

You know, I'm terribly short-waisted, thanks to my mother's side of the family, but have worn long shirts on occasion.  I usually wear them with a sort of clingy jean or black fitted pants (I'm a 14).  My must have here is that I've got to wear something under the shirt, like a tank top (even in winter), in an attempt to disguise the location of my waist.  In this way the big shirt can do its style thing, without making me look like a whole sack, because my jeans'slacks/whatever are also on the loose side.

 

I love the blue version, so am giving this serious thought.

 

(Still can't wear the length of necklace I'd like to wear, as they'd hang down past my belly-button.  LOL!)

Beautiful - he knocks it out of the park.  Oh, and the jewelry is gorgeous too.

Annabelle,

 

Had to use "red ink" to truly give you hearts on this one!  It is indeed so frustrating.  Some times I honestly think they don't want us to know.   LOL!

Re: Sneak Peek: Tunic Shirts A268129

Are these what they call "big shirts"-- meant to wear open or closed and loose... or just a regular button down shirt?   I love tunics, but not in a button down.  I much prefer it would be tailored to tuck in unless it's cut short and meant to wear as more as a peplum length, without all the flair of a peplum.... if that makes any sense.   I have to say, the  ivory shirt does look rich.  It's lovely- just not for me.  I suppose due to the knit I answered my own question. I can see how it could look sharp on others.

Here's what Louis says:

"As with the A267880, you can wear it as a shirt or SHIRT JACKET."

 

I have the shirt he references, and it is fitted, skimming the lines of the body--not boxy or big at all. It's one of the most beautiful & versatile shirts I own.
