Yeah, I have navy shorts I just bought when they had everything for 40% + free shipping...came out to be $11.99. Only time I shopped online and didn't feel like they were ripping me off compared to a retail store

Are the broken-in-chinos in navy only sold in stores?

if you're referring to the urban slim fit, then yes. even instore its scarce. the red and navy ones have been selling quick.

what about the classic fit broken-in chinos, in navy and espresso?
post #1280 of 1303
I believe broken-in classic fits are now only "online/catalog only" items. They used to be the staple chinos they sold in the store till they came out with the Stanton (which is more expensive and thinner...) and I guess they thought it confused customers to offer both casual style of chinos with the same fit in the store. I personally like the fit of the classic broken-in ones. Tailored but not too slim.

The red Miansai® rope bracelet looked great and I like a lot.. I grabbed some more Slim broken in Polos, The polos are very thin but feel fantastic on a hot summer day (only complaint was that one has a slightly looser button but a needle and some thread can fix that). I also grabbed a couple more Jaspe V-necks since they are marked down online and they fit quite well. In a week or two I'll be grabbing the Belstaff Colonial Bag and the Red Wings Rugged Classics. I'll keep you updated on how I feel about them.

Still debating on if I could pull off the Chukka Wabasha boots, not sure what I would wear with them but they look so interesting to me. Also side not the Alden Indy's from J-Crew are 1 full size larger than expected, I wear a 12 wide so I sized down to a 11 1/2 and they still feel like a 1/2 size too big but I also haven't tried them on with thick knitted wool socks yet. But the J-Crew Red Wings Beckman are hard to break in but are perfect sized down a 1/2 size.

WFU Guy I believe they stopped re-stocking them to retail stores around Jan-Feb and marked them down some until they sold out in-stores. The website says all the fits in broken-in except classic are online exclusives but I didn't see them at my local J-Crew but I could be wrong.

The item description for the broken-in classic says online/catalog only. The only broken in chinos I see in stores are in the regular fit or the USF. USF ones aren't bad either. I got a pair last spring for 10 bucks. They usually discount the broken-in chinos a lot more than the stanton, from my experience.

Has anybody seen the Colburn tweed or Whitman herringbone sportcoats in stores yet? Stopped by yesterday and the store didn't have either, and I was told maybe early this week but they weren't sure. I need a grey/brown jacket for fall and got a John Varatos one off Gilt but the fit kinda sucks so I'm sending it back. Thought these might be a solid option.
