Bought a pair of CP Company cargo pants two weeks ago for half off, $150.

Light wear, and a hole has developed underneath one belt loop, and one of the snaps on the pockets just tore off when I tried to open it. What the fuck? I emailed them, and they simply said take it up with the store where I bought them from?

Way to stand behind your product. Don't think i'll ever purchase another item from them again, even though I love the designs.

Well, that's what happens when you buy pants from the Crappy Pants Company.

Someone posted about a somewhat derivative J Crew Wallace & Barnes jacket in the EG thread:

Ok, so I tried one on for funsies. Fit is a little off. Tight in the shoulders but boxy in the midsection (not in a stylized EG sort of way). It has open-seam construction, which is kind of cool and makes it easier to tailor (Oliver Spencer jackets are like this, too). If I liked it enough, I'd probably size up one and have a tailor go to town taking in the back and side seams. The throat latch is weird and awkward and doesn't really work. Maybe a size up it would, but TTS it just looks bizarre and leaves some weird gaping at the chest. The sleeves are lined and there's an inside pocket, both of which are good things. The fabric is ok, not as thick as the double-layer jersey Barena uses but not bad. Hard to say whether it would pill. I'd say in general it's more reminiscent of a Barena jacket than anything by EG.

Overall, I'd say pass. It's ok, but even for the price you can do better.

Are there any good waxed cotton/weatherproof jackets that can be worn both on their own and over a sport coat, other than Barbour? Might get a Barbour, but I am certain there have to be other nice jackets in the same vein out there.

How about a mac?

I have been pretty disappointed with Jcrew stuff to the point where I wont consider buying anymore. I find that, though some cuts are decent to start with (pants and knits yes, shirts no) the materials inevitably look like crap after a short amount of time. In fact Id say, the older they get, the worse they look. The opposite of many other items. Wool trousers pilling, cotton chinos that become flacid in color and hand, knits and jersey that lose shape (and jersey loses color in non attractive ways).
If Jcrew stuff was priced more like Gap Id give them more leway. There is some nice stuff in similar price ranges to Jcrew now.

I would contact them and say give me money back, the fucker clearly got the sweater or if I was in a bad mood file fraud charges.

there are very few things I buy from J Crew nowadays (mostly 484 chinos) but I kinda wish they had a Madewell-equivalent for men. All the stuff my gf's shown me from them has seemed more interesting than what I see from J Crew's women section when I walk through a store. Kinda wish their Saucony collab went up to (bigger) men's sizes as well :embar:

Thanks dudes.

I am looking for something more hard-wearing though - these are almost too nice (and pricey!). Barbours can be worn in the city or while sweeping up feces in a field. That's what I'm looking for.

I assume you mean traditional suit jackets and sport coats worn to work environments. If so, there are a lots of country coats like Ulsters, Lodens, Balmacaans, etc. I don't know if they're any more "hard wearing" than a well made mac, but they're more rustic, which is realm of picking up shit in the field.
