Emerson Fry: Triangle Tank, Yoshi Sweater

I’ve been watching Emerson Fry for a few years now but was hesitant to order since I couldn’t find a whole lot out on the web about fit. Some of you may recall the Leopard Linen Coat from years ago. EF received a lot of requests for it and so they brought it back this Fall for a limited pre-order, which sold out.

After receiving an offer for $75 off my order over $200 I took the plunge and placed an order. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived 5 days later. Upon opening the box I immediately noticed a pleasant lavender smell that came from this little sachet. That was a really unexpected and nice touch.

~ Triangle Tank, Coal, size 6 ~

I really wasn’t sure about sizing but based on body measurements provided on the site, I chose a 6 for this tank. That size fit snug across the chest and hips. It pulls just below the chest and across the back. The hem is supposed to be asymmetrical and I did like that part and where it hit. I would have been better off with the size 8, my normal size.
The material is Modal but felt like a thicker silk. I would only use this as a layering piece and I have plenty of silk sleeveless blouses I purchased last year from J Crew that I can already use for layering.
~ Yoshi Sweater, Jet, Small ~

This sweater comes in three colors – Jet (Black), Charcoal (Gray), Natural. Thinking of the layering pieces I have, I chose Jet. The fit is supposed to be over-sized and cocoon-shaped but I am on the fence with the Small. It’s almost too big and I’m thinking an XS might have been better.
There’s ample room through the arms and body to layer under as much as you want.
With the Small though, it covers the booty very well so it will be great to wear with leggings and Pixie Pants. Also, with the Small, I might accidentally machine wash it, though it says to hand-wash, and could shrink.The wool is really comfortable and soft. It’s not itchy at all.
I returned the Triangle Tank as I have plenty of long silk sleeveless tops I can layer with instead. What I like with Emerson Fry is that you pay for shipping one time and then returns and exchanges are complimentary. I really like the Yoshi Sweater and will watch the “Shop Ends“section to see if I can get the Coal or Natural on sale.

Right now, Emerson Fry has 35% off all shoes with code EFSHOES1015. These are my picks.


Have you shopped Emerson Fry before? They are pricey and they produce domestically and launch small capsules. The $75 off did help make my purchase. I expect the Yoshi Sweater will be a piece I will keep for years and expect the quality to be exceptional. We shall see and I will report back if there are any issues with the sweater.

    I have tried EF a few times. I have kept nothing. It always looks great on the web site but just not for this body. The quality is pretty top notch tho.

      Blue Booby – I remember some of your posts on them. It seems they want to be the slouchy cool girl and I haven't decided if that look works for me.

    I also didn't keep my order (the geographic mod tank a couple of seasons ago) but I loved how things were packaged. Unfortunately the fit was off and I haven't tried again.
    I was looking at the white version of that mule the other day but it will soon be too cold here for mules (unless one goes with the fur Gucci version).

      Ema – Oh, I loved that tank and did consider Portia Top which is the same style. I realized the racer-cut isn't for me though. I considered the mules too but I like my whole foot covered in Winter.

    Thanks for this post….these are outfits I would probably have never picked out for myself but I love the shapes. And that 35% off shoes code? Would never have known about it otherwise. I used it to buy the Trooper Boots that I loved last year and just couldn't afford. At $385, I figured I could splurge and at least try them. If they don't zip up around my calves or don't fit, at least I won't wonder about them and lust over them any more.

      Heather – I hope the Trooper Boots have worked out for you. I am always hesitant to buy boots without trying them on for the wide-calf reason too.

    Hey-just making sure you saw the sweaters are 35% off through Sunday. I've ordered the Yoshi in dark red to try. Thanks to your review 😉

      Wendy – I did see that promo and ordered the Red too. I returned the Black Yoshi Sweater as I can recreate the slouchy black sweater look with a long black shirt and chunky cardigan I already have. But I'm excited about this color of the Yoshi Sweater. And I sized to an XS. I want a little less fabric so I hope it works!
