I'll probably buy another pair the next time I need casual pants, though, because I really like the way they fit (slim but not skinny) and because they come in richer colors than what's generally available.
I'm perplexed, Alex. Before I decided to go MTM, I tried on several of Kent's RTW polos and found them very snug in the torso and very wide at the neck. Granted, you and I have different builds, but I'm wondering if Kent may have tweaked the measurements on his RTWs. As I recall, a LOT of SFers asked him to do so. Here's his sizing chart, but I don't remember what the numbers were back when I was shopping for polos.
The one you're wearing looks like it fits really well across the shoulders and around your neck. You just don't have the biceps -- yet -- to look really good in it. I recommend a gym membership (which I recommend to everyone, so don't take it personally) and a trip to an alterations tailor to have the sleeves and torso slimmed. Since postage to the States is prohibitive, you're probably better off fixing this shirt than trying on other sizes. If you're desperate to wear polos -- and you seem to be -- then consider Kent's MTM program. You can use the polo you own to make good decisions about what measurements to request on your MTMs.
By the way, have you washed that shirt yet? Kent's polos shrink a little, and like most garments, they don't shrink proportionally. Wash it a few times before you make any decisions.

Thanks a lot, Threadbearer; you're thoughts are truly appreciated! smile.gif You're right--I haven't washed it yet; I will see, if it shrinks in the right areas any! Yeah, laid flat, the arm openings are 7 1/4", so I'll get them tailored to 6", I think; my arms are 12" around when flexed--yeah, I know, terrible! tongue.gif Funnily enough, I used to be a 15 stone tight-head prop in rugby, before smoking, Japanese food, and glandular fever took their toll! tongue.gif Anyway, when I get it fixed, I'll show fit pics! smile.gif

some more j crew stuff. i got these pants and shirt at a regular j crew store, as opposed to an outlet, and you guys were right. on both the shirt and pants the cut and fabric is totally different than what they have at the outlet stores. nicer colors, softer cotton, shirt gussets, and a nicer, slimmer fit. so lame that the outlet stores have inferior goods.

pants need to be hemmed though. the only have fat boy size in longer inseam size.

also, edmorel, no visible stitching on the inseam or outseam on these pants.

Pant length is ridiculous but you know that and it'll be fixed. Shirt is great.

pants and shoes are too close in colour, combined with the accordion break it looks bad from the belt down.

The J.Crew outlet stores sell goods that are really inferior to the regular stores. I'm not a big fan of J.Crew, but I like their shorts and shirts for casual wear. I hate their outlets, and no longer bother shopping in them.

Btw, love the shirt.

thanks guys. i have an IDENTICAL gingham shirt in blue from the outlet, and the 2 feel nothing alike. its a joke. they really should have a sign that says, "this isnt really j crew. its cheaper stuff that looks like j crew."
