I have been eyeing this linen sleeveless top — I actually like all three colors (black, white, and blue). I’ve not seen it in person and have never seen any KK linen, so I’m wondering if it’s worth the $100+ price tag. I have realized that I don’t love the style of a lot of linen pieces I see. Many of them are too unstructured and voluminous for my taste — lots of high crew necklines and elbow length sleeves, which are not my best. This one does appeal.

Any experience to share with Karen Kane linen? Anyone seen it in person? It says “dry clean” but I know I’ve done fine with laundering some pieces like that in cold/delicate and hanging to dry — what would make linen a “dry clean” material?
