Heritage vs Vintage
" The Madagascar Dress, with its horizontal stripes and geometric pattern, is a PC staple, a dress with many different names and subtle changes in weave, sleeve and skirt lengths. I have, I blush to say, four now--two similar iterations and, believe it or not, the mother of the dress. The Vintage (forerunner ) is shorter, woven of heavier cotton, but of similar colors, though the red and beige tones of the new dress are less striking. The browns and blues seem to be the same. The "Heritage" dress comes with a metal button sewn at the collar, proof of its being part of a collection, I suppose. I like the Heritage dress, which is slimmer in fit than the Vintage, though I think the Vintage is more cheerful and eye-catching. It is certainly more substantial. I have the XS (108/5'3") This purchase allows me to wonder whether there are similar differences in the other Heritage styles. "
