How deep are the collars on J Crew shirts? There are some nice patterns. On the website they appear small compared to English shirts.

They're not very deep.

That's for a pen, or a pencil to mark when doing carpentry work.

Don't worry. All of them have a button hole there.

Thanks, I figured it was I just wanted to be sure. I should probably use it too. This morning as I open the garage door 4 pieces of wood, 2 aluminum tins full of Christmas lights and a bushel basket of Christmas decorations landed square on my new car. 4 dents.

But I think you're missing my point about J. Crew's sizing. I think it wouldn't be all that appropriate for them to make most of their garments very slim. It's not appropriate for the traditional preppy look. And I don't think it's all that big.

I guess we'll agree to disagree on who shops there.

To the main point, I think sizing at J.Crew has some room for improvement while still maintaining the preppy look. At least for me, the secret wash shirts fit in the neck/shoulders perfectly but have 4-5 inches in extra fabric in the forearm area about 10 inches extra in the waist. Their aesthetic calls for a looser look, but not the type of ballooning fit they have now that causes people to size down.

I am not fucking impressed with Jcrew.

Just got an email telling me that the order I placed 3 days ago has been cancelled.

"oh sorry, wish we had enough; don't worry we didn't charge your card"

Shove your apology up your ass; you should be offering a special coupon if you were sincere.

I was beginning to develop a little sympathy for them since it can't be good when people return so many items or buy multiples of the same thing and only keep the one on deepest discount. But fat chance; they're just like every other dipshit retailer and dish it out as much as they get it.

^^^ The squeaky wheel gets the oil. I would give customer service a call.
post #4556 of 5101
yeah that happened to me once and i assumed the role of a squeaky wheel and got a big "oh sorry but fuck you".

Ha ha. Yeah, they're jerks. They've always refused to pay for my gas mileage to the store.

Do you work for J.crew or something?
post #4559 of 5101
No, but my argument is that since they offer free shipping to online shoppers, they should also offer reimbursement of gas mileage for in-store shoppers. Seems only fair.

I also don't like that J. Crew offers only student and teacher discounts. Like students need discounts? They get all that student loan money and stuff! And what about the rest of us who don't make much better than teachers' salaries and who also work in equally noble professions? What about those of us who make less than what teachers make?
