+1 to all of this. I bought one this winter and absolutely hated it. Fit is true shit, and quality seemed off to me too. Neck is disgustingly huge too. Major disappointment, as they are pretty cool looking.

A lot of the features that I look for in denim J Crew offers from their own stock, such as subtle crinkle wash, printed pockets, canvas lined button fly, leather washer buttons, selvedge-lined 5th pocket (I know I know).
Yo, I love the Crew, but wtf would you buy their selvedge denim? So many better options out there for the price point...

Agreed. fit looks a little snug with just a tee underneath, if you try to rock a button down underneath it won't be pretty. I would exchange it for a medium. Or - if you want to get this small of your hands - PM me.

Damn these look good. These are the cement color, I am assuming? Will be copping soon... J. Crew is really impressing me with the shoe offerings as of late, both from the J. Crew line and Alden, Quoddy, etc. I think it's the strongest part of the S/S 11 collection.

I wear my Aldens sockless all the time - use baby powder, shoe horns when putting on, and shoe trees, and you won't have problems. I hate socks though...

Save your some $62 and buy straight from Alden, nothing special about the J. Crew ones. Here: http://aldenshop.com/DrawOneShoe.asp?CategoryID=90
I think the color you are looking for is dark brown suede...
