Don't ask silly questions. I would imagine the fit is like any other size small Gap shirt. Slightly oversized for tagged size.

No, I don't have it. But I have thoughts. And they amount to this--meh, it's a belt.

The leather looks bad and that buckle gots to go. Step up your belt game and look outside of the Crew.

Wait a sec. Are they only 30 bucks? I thought none of jcrew shirts was cheaper than 60.

How'd you pull that one off?

i wish they made 36s in suits. i wanna get this for a wedding next month. http://images.jcrew.com/erez4/erez?s...if&tmp=prdDtIm the sleeves can obviously be taken up, but can the whole jacket be shortened without messing up the proportions?

It's kind of impossible not to have Gap experience for most of us and my past experience has been that Gap shirts fit like shit in their intended sizes. So a medium fits like a large, small like a medium, etc. Sleeves have excessive bagginess, shoulder seams fall off the shoulder, the backs billow out, etc. I avoid at all costs. How's that? Better for you? I mean it is Gap, not designer so you should expect it to fit like all Gap products do, same with J.Crew. Tailored fit my ass. Ask silly questions, get silly answers.

Doesn't the Crew offer free alterations? Hook yourselves up and get them altered. It's not uncommon to alter suits as they're usually always tweeks to be made.

I also wish they had 36S. I altered a corduroy sport coat to be short enough. It works as a sport coat, but I'm not sure it would work on a suit. I'm not sure that the proportions are quite right.

I'm considering LL Bean's chino sport coat. Not the Signature line, but the normal line, since they have 36S.

Today's itinerary includes: clearance store, vintage store, and J. Crew store. Anything you'd like me to look for?

I'd recommend finding another jacket. Taking an inch off the length will be difficult/expensive and probably won't look right.

I think an inch is doable but it may not be worth the costs to alter it. The ludlow jacket is shorter than traditional jackets so the 36r may be alright. I have the other measurements for the jackets let me know if you need them.

looks like i'm goin to the liquor store today. 29.5 might not be too bad for me. thanks, i pm'd you for the measurements.

dunno about jcrew in particular, but free alterations usually only includes inseam and maybe sleeve length. i think shortening a jacket requires taking the whole thing apart, altering each piece, and putting it back together.
