Too sheer: light pulp, white, heather ballet, black
Not too sheer: autumn maple, heather graphite, dark olive, pink clay
I don't understand why the black was so sheer across the chest, but I could definitely see my nude bra underneath. Ultimately I settled on pink clay and heather graphite. After the 40% off final sale and 15% off student discount, they came out to be $10.19 and $12.50 before tax respectively.
My checkout experience was rather unpleasant though, because the in-store sales associate kept trying to charge me a higher price for the heather graphite tee. I asked her to match the online price of $24.50 before discounts (because there's no reason to buy it in-store if it's cheaper online), and she begrudgingly did so after calling over a manager but only applied 30% off. I told her that the CARDSONLY code should give me 40% off and offered to do a mock checkout on my phone. She looked at me with suspicion and then informed me rudely that it was only 30% off when she did it on their tablet (because they don't have a J.Crew credit card as the payment option). I showed her my phone that says 40% off for cardholders, and she told me in a nasty tone that I would have to wait for the manager again. Finally, everything got all sorted out. It took me over 15 minutes just to buy a t-shirt! What ever happened to treating your customers politely? Especially if they're loyal enough to have your credit card. Anyway, I was very underwhelmed by the poor customer service that day.
Enough complaining and onto the reviews. Since I was in the neighborhood, I thought I would try on a few other items for anyone who was interested.
