There are only TWO clearance centers, one is in Lynchburg, VA and the other is in Arden, NC both are not realistically weekend driving distances from NYC.

I don't think anyone considered them ever to be good but I picked up some secret wash shirts for $17-18 and they were pretty decent.

It has never been great. Though the shirts are slimmer and many of the accessories belts, ties, socks,... are exactly the same as J Crew stuff with a different label.

I could be wrong, but somehow I think they had a bunch of nice shirts and ties (for the price, of course) a couple years ago.

Question for those who own the lightweight utility shirt or the utility jacket. Anyone find the utility jacket to be kind of short? The fit is great and I love the color but I find the jacket to be a lot shorter than my fatigue jacket. Is that just the style? I also bought the utility shirt and I was wondering if it's ok to wear untucked? The side vents are in a style that I've never seen before and I was wondering if it would look odd if I wore the utility shirt untucked. Thanks

+1

The shirts are, indeed, slimmer. And I, too, use the factory stores to stock up on shirts, ties, and socks. Everything else...well, a few nice things can be found. The shorts I purchased recently were nice.

But the jeans are terrible. Poor fit. Even poorer washes. Steer clear.

How much slimmer are the outlet shirts? An XS from the regular store fits me perfectly, I couldn't get away with buying a S and then washing it could I?

Um maybe in the chest and the waist it would be fine but I think it would be too big on the shoulders.

If you've found the perfect fit, stick with it.

Personally, I have 2 button-down oxfords, one from the factory, one fro the store. The store-bought item fits much looser and is longer...by a couple of inches. The jeans were the exact opposite. The store-bought vintage slim fit me perfectly, while the factory VS denim was loose, bordering on baggy.

Yeah, the utility jacket and shirt are shorter than usual. I think that's just the style. Since the utility shirt only goes to about 1 inch below my belt, I think it's ok to wear it untucked.

Great thanks for the info. Have any idea how the factory shorts fit in relation to regular merchandise?

What would you guys compare the vintage slim fit to? Are they more of a straight fit (like 501's), a little slimmer (like 514's) or a skinny fit? Thanks.

I haven't had a chance to try the store shorts yet. I will report back if I do.
