I have an J Crew Aldridge (slightly fuller cut than Ludlow) that I absolutely love. Bought about five years ago. I went into a BR store recently to check out the suits and was not impressed - the ones I looked at felt stiff and boxy. And I'm far below typical SF standards on suit quality - I have a Tommy Hilfiger suit that I like the feel of, for example. So I'm pretty-easy to-please and BR did not do it for me. But maybe it was just the store I was in.
