I've been wearing my Crate routes for a couple of weeks now and I love them. Some thoughts: The denim looks great, although on the thin side as some have commented, kind of streaky and deep in color. I was a bit worried about the mid-long rise, but it turns out I actually prefer a longer rise. They stretch quite a bit so I'd recommend sizing down 1 from your natural waist if you want them to be a perfect fit around the waist. If you intend to wear them a bit lower than...

To think someone wasted leather and metal on that...
Fleece is warm enough for early fall and spring, or warmer climate winters though, it depends on where you live.
Thoughts on these? http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...tegoryID=15063 (and 20% off with MACYSMOBILE) I've heard good things about Andrew Marc, but I'm guessing Marc New York is some sort of "value" diffusion line? "Imported" invariably means it's made to budget somewhere in Asia, which makes me a bit skeptical. I'm leaning towards this though, unless someone dissuades me. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...entPage=family (and 30% off with HOL2008) RL's high end...
Any tall/slim people here have any experience with their tall-large sizing? I'm 6'5", 187lbs, 41,7" chest, 35,4" waist. I'm conflicted, worried that medium will have too short sleeves and tall-large will fit like a tent. According to the j.crew size charts tall-large should fit me nicely, but the posts in here so far make me think it won't. I'm considering the peacoat, a thermal and a half-zip sweater. Edit: I've never had problems with sleeve lengths before though, maybe...
Large-Tall, for the same considerations. If the sleeves are too long I can get them shortened, if they're too short however... I found some measurements of it lying flat which were about 1-2" wider than one of my slim fit sports jackets that fits nicely, so it should be alright. It might be a bit loose to wear with just a t-shirt, but I wouldn't want to wear it with just a t-shirt anyway. I'll post an update -- maybe even some pictures of my success or disaster! --...
Alright, thanks for the tips. Think I'm going to trust Robert on this and go with the large. If it's too large at least I can have it tailored, but if it's too small I'm screwed.
I've also been looking for a cheapish casual coat, so this picqued my interest. Unfortunately, due to geographical limitations I won't be able to try one on, so naturally I'm worried about sizing. I'm 6'4, 41" chest and 33" waist. After looking at the size chart Tall Large seems to be my size? Anyone with similar measurements have any experiences? For comparison: my H&M sports jackets fit nicely at 44S. I guess I could mail BR, but shockingly I have trust issues with...

I have two pairs that I've been using on and off for about four years, bought before this forum turned me into a raw zombie. Both have held up nicely, no noticeable signs of wear and tear (apart from the pre-distressing :/) If you like the looks, why not just go and try some on?
