Yes, no doubt my favorite purchase in a while, next to the shawl cardigan.

If i had more balls and a climate that would allow me to wear it, i would've snatched that caped mac lightning fast

I just got the tuesday jacket and the grey trousers. I'd post pics but I forgot to bring my camera cable to school.

I got an XL/42, and I'm normally a L/40. I think I might have fit into a Large but this fits about perfect. It's slimmish but I could layer a sweater under it.

The v's actually a little deeper than my photography shows. I'm feeling a little uncertain about the colors of the v and the crew now, I have to admit. Not sure what these will go with much besides jeans.

Very cool in both. I was looking at the JtG Harringtons earlier today after seeing Get Smart's recommendation. I like that they're made in England. How's the overall quality?

Do you have a link for the sweatshirt?

The quality of the Harrington is pretty clearly not in the same class as Baracuta. The lining, rather than being a dense cotton flannel, is more of a loosely woven acrylic. The shell is 65% poly/ 35% cotton, rather then Baracuta's 100% cotton (with a teflon coating). All that said, I like the way this fits and the quality is perfectly fine for a casual windbreaker. It cost $75 shipped, and the cheapest you can find a comparable Baracuta is about $150 from Modual on the B&S forum. I know there's a cheap deal on Ben Sherman Harringtons from overstock.com, but they only have navy and red and I really wanted cream/beige. I think I like the idea of cheap Harringtons as they're pretty painless to replace and I might want a different color in a year or two. I got the sweat shirt from the Rakuten store "American Clothing Cream," and I know that the store "Take Off" also carries this brand. they do cost about $115 plus shipping so it's not a screaming deal. You'll have to spend some time linking and searching through the Rakuten affiliate thread to get the hang of the place and get pages to appear in tranlsated form. The Raken affiliate rep is very helpful via PM. As for the quality, I doubt that it's as good as Buzz Rickson or Loopwheeler, but they fit really well and don't have the short torso/sleeve problem that Buzz has. It might also be worth your while to check out the options from Blue In Green (I almost went for the SDA indigo dyed sweatshirt instead). For a cheap alternative, the Urban Outfitters "Fink" brand is well styled and proportioned and only $38.

Man, that j. crew final sale is addicting. They keep re-stocking the sweaters. Just ordered a grey spencer cable crew and a blue shawl collar pullover. Plugged in a promo code for an extra 20% off, too.

Thanks for the thoughts. I attempted to navigate Rakuten some last night (their Post O'alls stuff looks great). Maybe I'll give it another go. I took a look at the Fink sweatshirt at our local UO recently and ended up not getting it. I'd like something a little more substantial.

The Harrington looks nice. I'm not hot to get one yet, but will pull the trigger at some point on some brand somewhere. I may just keep my eyes open thrifting. I'm certainly not averse to a vintage/off brand. I also have a green modified Harrington from Brooks Bros. My funds are a little depleted since I just purchased this from B&S last night:

^ Great buy.

It's certainly not uncommon to run into old Baracuta or Van Heusen Harringtons in thrift store. There's also vintage Izod Lacoste if you don't mind or can remove the alligator emblem.

Wish it was just as easy to thrift nice old sweatshirts. But a few pop up every other week on eBay and garner high prices, so anything's possible...
