WTF, $650 for a J.Crew suit? As much as I love the subtle birds-eye tweed, that's a shit load of money for J.Crew. Add CA tax and you're talking $700. Yikes. Wonder if any of you know of anything similar that's not $700 or better quality for this amount of money? Then again, everyone is probably over in the S/S thread.
This is definitely not the gray flannel suit, which has been available as a f/w item for several years now (I've owned one in the Aldridge cut for over a year). I opened a j.crew card to take advantage of the first-purchase discount, made the order via red phone in the store to get free shipping, and the whole purchase came out to about $550 after tax. It's not a cheap suit, but that's an acceptable price for me. I'm not aware of any other tweed suit for that price.
