Yay or Nay?
Now let's play a little game of Yay or Nay.....
What do we think of this Funktional Paul Fold Front Shirt?
Months ago, I fell for its gray-striped cousin, but it sold out before the price could drop to Kristen-like levels. I snapped up the plaid version, which is even cooler, when one lone shirt popped back on Tobi.com.
Don't bother looking, it's sold out everywhere — and just when Lucky magazine plastered its photo in the January issue. That shows you just how far out magazine deadlines are — it's been gone for weeks. But I feel just a little bit — OK, a lot — smug that I found it way back when. Now everyone will be looking for it.
What I like: It's unlike anything else in my wardrobe. I have very few button-downs, let alone one this grunge-ish. The detailing is quite cool — the front appears to be tucked in, but it's really a sort of elastic hem. The back hangs like a shirt tail. I love the wrap-type treatment.
What I don't like: It's seriously oversized, which makes me feel self-conscious. Does it make me look heavier? The 90-pound models who wear this stuff always look even more waifish in oversized clothes. A normal-sized person could easily look dumpy.
