Jason Wu for Target: fit problems & quality issues
Now that "Wu mania" has died down a bit, I notice that my local Target stores are slowing being replenished with inventory, assumingly from customer returns. I'm not surprised, as the sizing on the Jason Wu for Target line is all over the map. In general, it's running larger than previous Target designer-collabs. But I've also found inconsistencies within the same size. Case in point: I bought this blouse in red (far left) and loved it so much that I ordered the same one in gold (in the same size). However, the gold one fits totally different than the red one, and seems to be running a full size smaller than the red. Same thing with the t-shirts I've ordered: I got the gray lace tee in a size Small at the store, then ordered the Milu cat tee in a Medium (as that's the smallest size they had left) and found that it fit exactly the same. The size Medium Striped tee I ordered, on the other hand, runs bigger than both of them, and seems to fit more like a Large.
And regarding quality: my fellow blogger The Recessionista reported last week about issues like rips and tears on the more delicate blouses. I've noticed several complaints about quality on Target.com as well.
What about you, readers? Any fit or quality woes with Wu?
