^hmm, that makes it a bit difficult. I hope someone own the particular item and can tell me something about the quality
Maybe the item has some reviews on their site?
And the main thing that bugs me is the bad hemlines (at least on the knitted henley's I always get there). So you might wanna pay extra attention to those when checking the quality. This fabric seems a lot smoother so that might be a plus. Ofcourse you can always order/buy it and return it if the quality isn't what you expected it to be.
My AA items have lasted me really well - I haven't bought anything from them for years though because their ads and the owner are just but I might lie back, think of England and press the Buy button soon anyway because a couple of trusty staples will need replacing and I haven't found anything as good elsewhere.
Went to the flea market today. They hadn't ran one in a while. The set up was on the second floor of the main building. Free admittance so no pressure on buying anything. Also the line was A LOT shorter. What do I mean by that? For one we were actually able to park in the parking lot which has never happened! Also the garments were very organized and very few were damages or defectives. This resulted in prices being way higher on some items. disco pants 50?! childrens coats 35?! the stripe bucket bag i had been wanting was 35 down from 60 but i still passed... it is cloth after all. most garments i got were 8 to 10. the highlights being a see through tunic length tee and gold chunky necklace. i also got a stripe tee. some seesucker $3 bloomers for styling on my vintage website. a printed tee with geometric shapes. a "classic" aa rugby s/s henley that is brown and blue. also got my friend a few things. all for 92 bucks. not bad. =)
Funny thing is my friend and I had lusted after so many of these garments in the past and we were able to just pass them up today. the craziest part to me was passing on the cardigans which they never had at previous sales. $20 dollars was a pretty fair price for them.
If you're small enough they have very cute shorts for $12 in a multitude of styles. i am not. boo! lol.

i own the fisherman knit in brown and blue and its definitely become one of my favourite sweaters. perfect for layering over shirts or over mesh skirts. The cut is very versatile, and can hold it's own even when worn simply with trousers - the draping and slouchiness of the sweater is that good. it can't be denied that it's a tad bit overpriced for what it is however... but that's AA for you.
I've gotten nearly identical knits from korean websites and they were only 40-50, which is much more affordable if you're going to buy 2+ colours. try looking around before you make the purchase!
