Bluffworks Threshold Womens T-Shirt

Note: This shirt was provided by Bluffworks for review purposes.

A few months ago Bluffworks launched their women’s collection. I was excited to try out some of their pieces considering how much Steve and Ben like their dress shirt, suit, and Threshold T-Shirts. It’s great to see companies branching out into performance women’s wear. While the current line is limited, they have some great wardrobe staples.

The Threshold Womens T-Shirt has quickly become a cornerstone of my wardrobe. I find myself wearing it to work, on the weekend, and layered under sweaters.

Material

This t-shirt is made of 66% polyester, 29% lyocell, and 5% elastane. It wicks moisture, dries quickly, resists odors, and it’s wrinkle resistant.

The fabric drapes nicely without being too clingy or baggy. It was soft from the first wear and has gotten better since washing it. The elastane gives it just the right amount of stretch for it to hold its shape and move well.

The weight of the fabric also makes it a great all seasons piece — layering during the colder months and then on its own during warmer months.

Performance

I can get multiple wears out of this shirt between washes, and it really holds up to its odor resistant claim. I find I can get almost as many wears as I can get from a merino shirt.

This t-shirt dries quickly and wicks sweat away, and it is really breathable which will make it a good shirt for warm temperatures.

Also, I haven’t had any issues with it wrinkling, it’s always frustrating to have a t-shirt that wrinkles as they should be easy go-to pieces.

Fit & Style

I normally opt for a crew neck t-shirt as I find a lot of v-neck t-shirts have a deeper v then I like. The cut of the neck on this shirt is an ideal v-neck cut for me, this also makes it dressier than some of the other t-shirts in my closet. The curved bottom and longer hem in the back give it a flattering feminine shape.

This shirt fits true to size, and is long enough to tuck in if desired.

Overall

This is the technical t-shirt I have been searching for. While $45 for a simple, non-merino t-shirt may seem like a lot, I would highly recommend the Threshold T-Shirt considering the versatility and features.

I am excited to see the next pieces Bluffworks releases for women, including the Trevi Blazer, and look for an upcoming review of the Trevi Pant.

The Willary D-Fit Core Pants

Here at Everyday Wear, we are excited to announce the addition of Kimberlee to our team to expand our reach into women’s performance clothing for everyday wear!

It took me a long time to find pants that fit my smaller waist and larger hips. When I first found these D-Fit Core Pants I was struggling to find something that I liked on the market that wasn’t ultra skinny.

The Willary was started in 2016 by two women who realized women needed better pant options, one of the co-founders had worked as an intern for Outlier and then with Nike. One of the key differences over other women’s brands that make performance gear is that their clothing is designed so the wearer is always looking neat, tailored and put-together.

I received these pants as a Christmas gift back in 2016 and they have held up over the last three years, and I know I will get many more wears out of them. Also, something that is lacking in a lot of women’s clothing is pockets. These truly deliver with very deep pockets.

Material

These pants are made of Swiss-milled 4-way stretch 82% nylon/12% Micro Nylon/6% elastane fabric in the USA. The fabric is stain, water and wrinkle resistant.

If it’s a rainy day and I know I am going to be outside these are my go to pants, the water beads up and doesn’t soak through the material, even though no DWR coating is advertised.

When washed they dry very quickly which makes them great if you have to wash them while traveling.

Performance

I get a ton of use out of these pants, everything from wearing them to work or on the weekend to wearing them while traveling. I do wear these pants year round, but the fabric is thick which can make them a bit heavy for a really hot day. The cut helps them stay in place, no need to pull them up every time you move. Also, they hold their shape, no baggy knees or need to wash them to get their shape back.

If I have a long day of travel and don’t have to be super dressed up these are always my travel pant of choice. They don’t wrinkle, hold their shape, and lets be real who doesn’t love good pockets when you are traveling.

Fit and Style

These pants come in two different cuts, the D-Fit Core Pants (for curvier gals who suffer from waist gapping) and the C-Fit Core Pants (for gals with narrower hips, less in the rear and maybe more in the waist).

These fit true to size, I would recommend consulting the size chart prior to deciding which pants are best for you. It breaks down the measurements of the D & C pants. I have the D pants and the waist sits high which makes for a comfortable fit, no waist gapping and the legs fit well without being baggy.

They only come in one length (31.5” inseam) but they can easily be hemmed if needed.

One of the best design features of these pants is the pockets. There are 5 deep pockets including one on the back of the right leg that fits a cell phone.

Overall

Back in 2016 there weren’t a lot of options in this category for women and there is still a lot of room for more players. At $198 I would recommend these pants as three years later they are still in amazing condition and continue to be a wardrobe staple. They can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, which makes them a versatile piece in my closet.
