This is going to be a quick post. I noticed something by complete accident. Back in November, I purchased the Tippi in Marled Camel at full price (79.50+tax). The week before Christmas I noticed that J.Crew was offering the same Tippi online for 29.99 with 40% off and free shipping. I'm pinching pennies, so I returned the store purchase for the online purchase. Since I'm neurotic, I decided to try on both to see which one fit better before I returned one (its the same damn sweater). To my surprise, the store bought Tippi was a heavier merino wool and the online Tippi was very lightweight and more forgiving. How could this be ? Its the same sweater. I wish I would have taken pictures. By the way, I also purchased the Tippi in the Heather Grey, took it to the store and the store version was noticeably heavier again. Has anyone noticed this ?
