To be honest I don't like the look of casual shirts with darts or any alterations-- I'll pay more for the shirt that's cut right off the rack

I hate how swimming pools knock off lakes and the ocean.

yeah, must be a coincidence LOL. nevermind they were released same-season, look exactly the same, and JC has a long history of cherry-picking from the designers du jour

also shrewd analogy, definitely pertinent

Impossible for me with a 42" chest...gotta have darts to make it hug the hips.

Also......I don't understand some of your logic.....a GOOD tailor can cut it JUST like any brand you want.......do you think some of these places have magical tailors who do cuts that nobody else can?

Haha, putting prices in relative terms is an effective way to make arguments more persuasive! Nothing wrong with that

And boy, this thread sure turned ugly fast

Lately I'd agree and I love my CPs, but they just keep raising retail and really adding nothing.

I think J. Crew have some of the most overpriced shirts. You're overpaying for what is basically a knock-off of better brands:




I don't see anything wrong with the J Crew shirts. I have some and they fit well on me at least. Now sure the quality isn't the best but I don't want a shirt that will be lasting me for 10 years anyways. Would look weird taking a picture 10 years from now and then seeing a picture from 10 years ago where I'm wearing the same shirt.

I think Uniqlo is the best bang for the buck—although, their trousers never fit me as they are vanity sizes! ¬.¬ I think a lot of stores, Americans use, like J.Crew, can be a little over-priced—although, I like a lot of their stuff. H&M and Topman are, pretty much, the worse shops out there! Topman has terrible cuts, styles, colours, etc, etc and H&M have shoddy stitching, etc! Fich that!
