I'm 5'6", so I normally have a really hard time finding things that are the right length. I wouldn't have really given J Crew much thought except I recently got one of their lambswool sweaters off B&S and the length was suprisingly good for my height.

Thanks for the help.

Help a brother out?

Shoulders do not constitute a slim suit. Midsection width does in the jacket and thigh, knee and hem does on the pants.

KPO89- Not a terrible fit.
I agree that the quality to price ratio is quite good. My main problem is the lapels.
The lapels are so narrow on the ludlow, that you would need a 2" tie.
There are other problems.
Surgeon Cuffs- Means you can't alter the sleeves at all. Almost everybody alters the sleeves on their jackets.
Cut- For a slim jacket, the shoulders are quite wide. My older H&M jacket 40L has shoulders at 17.25" while the my J Crew has 18.2".
Pants- The pants are not slim.

I will agree with you on the shoulder width because i'm a true 39 and pulled off a 38. But I did have the pants slimmed and the sleeves taken in a full inch. Apparently this surgeon cuffs isn't on their suits anymore becausefor $10 my tailor took the sleeves in.

I returned one a couple weeks ago. Color is different from the picture and it is going to look odd unless you are 6'2"+

J Crew is coming to Canada.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/yahoocana...ming_to_canada

Too bad they are only coming to Toronto currently (as is typical of most American retailers when they first move North) and I'm on the other side of the country. Hopefully (although I don't count on it in the slightest) this means those astronomical duty charges they add will be reduced on online orders or something alone those lines.

I'm a fan. Tried it on at the Georgetown store a couple months back. Definitely a winter coat in terms of warmth and I think it looks pretty good in person.

In regards to the earlier post, I should note that I am in the 6'2" - 6'3" range in height, so that may be a part of it.

Here's a real life pic of it:



Looks pretty good from this pic I would say. Why would it only look good for someone who is 6'2"+?

If anyone has a deck jacket from current season or past in Size S or XS, I would love to buy it from you. Shoot me a PM.

Are you kidding? Midsection isn't the only thing that makes a suit slim, it's shoulders, armholes, sleeves, midsection, chest, etc etc.

ugh its a pain finding suits where the shoulders aren't really wide. Its amazing how many 36 short/reg suits I come across with 17.5+ shoulders

I'm jealous. Where I live its tough to find anyone that'll shorten sleeves on a jacket for less than $25

My guess is Sherway Gardens (not technically Toronto, but who really cares).
