Let me know what you think. These guys are committed to their craft.
Coming from somone who knows next to nothing, why are those jeans good? Seem like just a lot of predistressing, but people seem to like them so I'm curious.
dude, i own like 3 pairs of j crew dress pants. i have a bunch of issues with the jackets -- the button stance is too high, the shoulders too padded, the lapels too narrow. it's like a combination of all the awful looking on trend blazer styles. the quality is also junk at retail, and you can't consistently find a full suit at 70% off (when it's actually worth it).
Photos online must be pretty deceiving. Model must be wearing pants really high. FWIW, button point cannot be higher or equal to Uniqlo jacket. If Uniqlo had the same cut in terms of the balance in buttoning pointt, I probably would not need any other suiting unless I want to get all fancy.
Yeah Teger I think you've got it backwards, J Crew's button stance is a little low for my taste. Their suiting seems to be a rip off of RLBL (slim cut, highly padded shoulders, narrow lapels, low button stance). Don't see how the above could possibly be considered a high buttoning point.
I like those jeans and tank btw. All from the same label?
^Hence i want to try out the suiting by J.crew, if only to have a more balanced jacket as high button points bring out the worst in my thigh / hips. J.crew retail is also not as shocking have spent a lot more on other purchases. By the description, the suiting material is not all bad. It is probably mid-level / status quo, and I am probably not knowledgeable enough to notice the difference as much as I do like reading MC now and then. Ignorance is bliss.
Just depends where in the hype cycle SF is between distressed, washed, and raw jeans. They all have their merits when done well.
