Lucky Brand Striped Henley: Original VS Re-release

imma line

It has come to my attention that people have been very curious about the differences between the original and re-release of the Lucky Brand striped henley as of late. For those unaware of the top, it is the long sleeve shirt Bella wears while being confronted by Jacob at the end of New Moon.

So I did a bit of asking around and found a couple of girls who have re-releases and originals. Here is what we came up with!

On the left is the rerelease, on the right is the original.

The original henley is much more defined with its contrast of colors in the stripes.

The materials are in fact the same, but the re-release is actually a bit THINNER than the original.

In return, the original has a bit more stretch!

Where the re-release was made in China, the original was made in the Philippines.

Everyone involved with getting the henley re-released worked really hard and did such a wonderful job, unfortunately a lot of times it is required if a company re-releases something they modify the look of the product slightly, just to keep track of what year it was released. Over all, very subtle and small differences! The re-release is just as wonderful and definitely works as a great Bella Swan item to stick in your closet!

Thanks to Ilka and Eternally for submitting photos!

    Thank you so much for the information. I really appreciate it.

    I looked all over the internet and couldn’t find any place that carries the shirt. Do you have any idea?

    I would like to wish you a wonderful holiday and happy and healthy New Year!

    Thanks for a great website!

      Ebay is the only place you’ll find the shirt now a days! You just need to stay patient and keep looking 🙂
