definitely selling my sutherland wool/cashmere coat with thinsulate. posted in B & S
post #2762 of 5101
I just noticed today that the buttons on my Sutherland trench (that I've had since the spring) have crumbled like limestone! I've never seen anything like it. I called J. Crew up and they offered to either send me buttons and reimburse me for tailoring costs or do an exchange. They said that no one else has reported this issue before, so it may have just been a manufacturing defect on my buttons. Anyone else experienced something similar?

that's pretty cool they'll reemberse your tailoring

I really like this jacket, but not sure if its is "me".

What would you wear with it pants wise? Jeans, chinos? I'm guessing no cords. What about shirt? Do you wear this like a fall jacket?

Anyone know why so few shirts are available in XS? They are available for like a week then they vanish.
post #2766 of 5101
they probably don't make as many in XS as they do in other sizes

I know why. But cant really say. Some people have took over the store in my area and they are kinda small.

This is what I don't understand. Their XS stuff sells out very quickly. Common sense would dictate that they should make more of these and less of the XL/XXL varieties, right?

Yep. They haven't quite entirely crumbled yet but on the back side of two of the large front buttons it feels like somebody has sanded them with course sandpaper. I just noticed this after putting it through a cold delicate wash. If I run my thumb across it smalls sandy bits will come off. I got this one off ebay. Was new w/ tags but had the label marked out w/ black sharpie. Seems like a batch of buttons had some ingredient left out and the plastic is breaking down prematurely.

Please call customer service and let them know! They'll send you replacement buttons I'm sure. Just say you bought it in-store. It's also useful to let them know for quality-control purposes.

Thanks for checking.

I have two and like them but have no illusions that they're anything fantastic. Value is in the eyes of the beholder, but I think they're worth ~$100 or so when they go on sale, no thanks at full retail. Treat them well and they'll last a while.

is there a student discount promo code? haven't been able to find one for online purchases, only in store. they've got some broken in tees going for $10 in certain colors, $20 for others.

It's almost like some people don't know how use the search feature on this forum.
post #2775 of 5101
Hmmm. Yes, almost. That's sounds strangely accurate.
