J Crew S/S 10 Discussion - Page 121

post #1801 of 5155
I highly recommend the madras shirts. I ordered a blue/ red madras in small from Staver and it is very nice. The tailored fit is perfect for my slim body type.

Do the other j crew shirts have the same fit as the madras if they also have "tailored fit" in their description, more specifically the chambray utility shirts?

^ No. Every single shirt on the site has that blurb about "tailored fit" in the description, it's meaningless. I have no experience with the madras, but the utility shirts fit about a half size larger than Secret Wash shirts, fwiw.

+1. J. Crew shirts are only "tailored" if you consider having like 3 inches of tapering tailored and have 14 inch forearms.

Thanks for the feedback. I guess a xs sounds about right for the chambray shirt.
post #1805 of 5155
fwiw, the xs madras seems just a little tighter in the chest than xs in the blue chambray.

Is the red chambray in stores today?

This is infuriating. I had my local store tell me (on the 23rd) that the shirt was backordered until April. I called to order anyway and they said it wouldn't ship until April. Now it is online and in stock? WTF????

I know, it pisses me off too (see my history of ranting about it in this thread). JCrew is one of the few fashionable clothing outlets that carries Tall sizes and yet they constantly tease us with only carrying a fraction of their line in Tall.

EDIT: Zoomed in again and looked at it really hard. Oh my, these patterns are extremely subtle.

At least you guys have a few options. They have like 4 Medium Tall shirts.

Nop. The Medium Tall is even too big in the neck and chest.

I'm 6'6" so I understand your problem.. Even an XL in JCrew, depending on the button up, may not be long enough for my arms. I have noticed some are, some are not.

Have you considered buying a JCrew button up on clearance sale and taking it to a good tailor as an experiment? It should cost you around $15 to get it taken in and you can see if they can make it slim enough for you to fit well. If so, just start buying anything they don't have in a L-Tall in an XL and get it altered. It's an additional cost, but you will be happy in the long run with an expanded wardrobe that fits.
