How are the "Sydney Shoes?"
post #2237 of 5101
when wearing the xs secret wash shirts I find they pull funny- specifically that when I sit down the shirt pulls/puffs out between the buttons...which doesn't happen w/ the BOO small buttondowns I have w/ similar or slightly slimmer measurements. Anyone else have this problem?

Have them, and really like them. However they are about 1 full size to big.

I went to a local thrift store and saw a small J Crew button up, J Crew Cords (light brown), and J Crew linen/cotton shorts (they have frayed ends). All of them with tags ! Paid 11 bucks for everything, sweet deal. I believe these are from 05/06. carry on......

Yeah, I find the OTR fit good for everyday as well. The only time I'm concerned about tailoring my shirts, though, is for my dress shirts for suits etc.

Do the dress shirts fit the same as their other shirts like the secret wash ones? Tried on a S and a M dress shirt. M was very boxy, although the neck fit, and the S was too small in the shoulders and neck, but looked good around the chest and waist.

Don't have any J. Crew dress shirts myself.

Looking to pick up some J Crew sweaters that will last me a couple of yrs, how is the quality? What would you recommend - cotton cashmere or the merino?

The merino sucks. The cotton cashmere ones arent bad at $20-25 on sale but not at the regular price. They lose there shape over time.

I was at j crew today, overheard the saleswoman saying that they improved the merino and cotton-cashmere sweaters, apparently there were a lot of complaints about pilling, so now they don't pill as often apparently. Don't know about maintaining shape improvements though.

What would you say would be a better alternative at the J Crew pricerange?

They should be slightly bigger.

Just tried on the fatigue jacket at Jcrew...looks really good!

I am a 42" chest and wore a medium in it though.

I usually load up on the cotton-cashmere or cotton-wool sweaters when they are between $20-30. They do lose shape over time but Im not too worried when they are only $20-30. But they arent worth the regular price. Other than that my other sweaters are all $150< Edit: you should check out there lambswool, I have 1 and its held its shape better than the cotton cashmere.
