How do you justify paying 3X or 6X as much for jcrew for identical styles?


I'm not gonna try to answer the question regarding quality, but pricing does get much lower for their stuff. After a few weeks, they'll likely discount those prices further and then they'll usually do an extra 30% off sale items to clear everything out. Prices will usually dip into the $30 range for shirts before sizes get very limited.

In store, shirts can be had in the sale section in the sub-$20 range.

this is true. their in-store 30% off sale price deals make shirts extremely affordable. like the previous poster stated i've purchased plenty of their shirts at $20 or less. i own both LEC and Jcrew items. To me, Jcrew products are superior.

Just bought a J-Crew Workers Chambray off eBay, since they don't ship to Australia. Anyone have one of these, how are they?

I own a few button downs from both LEC and J Crew Factory. With sales, the LEC shirts were around $12 each, and the J Crew Factory shirts were around $20 each.

IMO, the J Crew Factory stuff is pretty decent quality for that price range.

The fit is very different for these shirts, though. I bought both in small:

LEC - The small just -barely- fits me at 5'9 150lbs. I like that the sleeves run a little bit shorter. One major complaint is that the buttons seem to have very tight spacing, which makes it odd for me to wear with one button open. It either looks almost completely closed, or WAY open if I undo 2 buttons. Not sure what I can do about that.

JCrew Factory - Also bought in small, is considerably baggier than the LEC shirt, particularly in the chest. The sleeves seem to run very long in this shirt - far longer than LEC, banana republic, gap, h&m, express, or any other similarly priced shirts.

Any other good options in the < $20 range? (Uniqlo +J in medium seems like a good option, but not available until I can make it up to NYC)

Hey I have the grey chambray for sale BNWT shipped for $70. As for price for a slim tie, I'd say 20-40 range. If you have existing fat ties you could easily get them slimmed by a tailor
