Yeah, I just couldn't bring myself to pay $400 for the blazer, knowing I'd still have to take up the sleeves at least.
Yeah, customs can take a while, especially at this time of year. I sent something to New Zealand a couple of months ago via USPS International Priority Mail for an SF member, and it took well over a month to arrive. I'm going to guess the vast majority of that time was spent in customs.
The e-mail I got said that the code applies to "all sale items" in the fine print. It does say that purchase made with the code are final sale though, but that means something different to me.
If you mean "won't shred to bits as soon as you look at it" when you say "quality", then yeah J. Crew is fine. Despite what some folks on SF would have you believe, clothes from J. Crew can actually last for a while. They seem to have gotten a handle on more consistent sizing in the past few years, too, though I am not an expert as I buy an average of around one piece a year nowadays.
Worn 15 times or so. Pics coming soon. Price does not include shipping.
La Garconne has an extra 20% off sale items for 3 days starting today with the code "GARCONNE20". Some APC (no jeans), Ervell, CDG shirt man, a few pairs of CPs left. UPDATE: according to reports, code is accepted but does not seem to actually provide 20% off right now. They will probably fix that sometime today. I am only the messenger.
There are measurements on the Ervell website; I just don't know if I can trust them.
+1Now I just need to figure out how the standard blazer actually fits.
I had the non-slim version of this more than a decade ago but the style is the same. It works a lot better on taller folks, and you will get bored of the coat, but at $115 + tax for what appears to be 100% wool (mine was 80/20 wool/nylon IIRC) is a downright steal IMHO, especially if the slim version actually fits slim.
As long as:* The shoulders fit well* The armholes aren't too high or low* The lapels sit on your chest while the jacket is buttoned* The length of the jacket is no more than .5 inch longer than what you needthe rest is fixable IMHO. Looking at the pictures, all that seems true for this suit except the armholes seem a bit big in some of the pictures for some reason. I'd definitely take in the chest from the sides, maybe take .5 inch off of the bottom, and make the pant...
