I prefer the orange even putting price aside
Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2033
I'd buy it only if you can return it. In past seasons, it's been one of the brand's most awkwardly fitting models-- crazy wide shoulders and an overly abbreviated length.
But on the bright side, RB is always tweaking their cuts, so there's a chance it's improved since I last tried it on. The blazers from FW12 seem to fit true to size, for example, where in previous seasons they fit much smaller.
And so, the waffling continues.
Straps viewed from the front look a bit plastic-y on the orange one: http://www.supplystore.com.au/images/items/SUKF12135/35/3.jpg and looking at it here I've got big concerns it'd just be too orange for all of my wardrobe: http://www.triads.co.uk/images/products/zoom/1355139552-90923600.jpg
I like that the blue is more subtle and the colour combo of blue/beige detailing. I like that every time I post in this thread people's replies make me work out what I prefer for myself.
