Horn - shine a light onto the button at an angle, you will see surface markings (may be very subtle). Will feel cooler against your face than plastic. Every button will be different. Less commonly polished, more commonly matte finish. Corozo - from a Brazilian nut. will look perfectly flat at first, but a closer inspection reveals a fine grain,...

Your post will be extremely helpful, as there are definitely more than a few people here interested in that particular jacket, especially since they're on sale now with the potential for further discount. What's the fabric quality like on this jacket? 'See through' like the washed wool one? They played up the English Mill thing quite a bit on the site, so I'm especially curious. And the general...
Quote: Originally Posted by RLlikes This sale rocked! Thanks for the heads up, guys. On Tuesday, I ordered the burgundy chukkas, suede chukkas and plain toe bluchers. Called today about the 15% discount, and they applied it to my Tuesday order. Fedex tracking info shows that one pair will be delivered today and the other two tomorrow. So, I ended up paying (excluding tax) $130.39 each for the chukkas and $119 for the bluchers! I see that they...

I did order the other herringbone blazer (#96305), but they forgot to ship it; I'll be receiving it soon and will update this thread when I do.

As another point of reference: my wife has J. Crew fleece-lined chinos from a few years back. They are noticeably thicker and heavier than the regular ones, and she always mentions that they are super-warm. Unfortunately, they also look noticeably thicker from the outside, at least for her pants.
It's coming in tomorrow; I'll update then or the day after.
PM'ed about socks
Forgot about my other order: #94126, #98276 (not on website anymore for some reason) - two size S button-downs in white with a blue graph pattern on it. They are identical though they have different item numbers. They come wrinkly, as this is meant to be a casual shirt. The fit is OK (slight billowing in the lower back, but shoulders are spot-on), but I suspect if I actually lose the weight that I should be losing, the fit will not be as OK. As I stated before, I am...
About the shipping: I usually team up with my wife and order a ton of stuff online. Shipping maxes out after some amount in the low-to-mid hundreds. I'd much rather have 30% off than free shipping. We then return what we don't want at the local store. I ordered a couple of items in their new XS size: a button-down (#95678) and a tailored-fit polo (#93827). The button-down fit me almost perfectly except it was a bit tight across the chest, but that's because I'm fat...
