This is the most clever faux detailed item of clothing since those tuxedo t-shirts came out!!

Your attention to the little details is wonderful (ahhh--the old tying each thread in the back--too much goodness!)

I bet you get lots and lots of second , third and fourth glances wearing this!

Yep--totally rocks!
