Just got the timex watch and a bunch of other crap I'm not sure about just so I could get free shipping... Even though we are using that code, as long as its not labeled final sale we can return it right?

post #1114 of 1157

took a few final sale things back last night and they pushed for me to do an in-store exchange, store was picked over like crazy so i asked nice and they gave me store credit. Probably won't work with every store as they were hesitant but they worked it out for me.

I have a flannel with that label - at least three years old, probably four. Luckily for you, that plaid, Campbell, is pretty common - I just bought one from LE Canvas for $18.

I got a medium and im 5'11", 178lbs, 40R chest, 32 waist... hope it fits!

5'8
~150lbs
inbetween 38-40R
30-31 waist

I think you'll be fine in Medium. I got my jacket in the mail the other day and it fits me perfect. I can't imagine sizing down since the shoulders are just right. Sleeves were just a tad long, but a small cuff fixed that. I really like the fit of the jacket. Glad I didn't get the slim version.

REALLY love the jacket. For $80 it was a steal. All the pockets and details are great.

Finally got a red/white/blue striped strap for my Timex. Really great looking.

Lol I just took my M in that shirt to goodwill today! It's from 4 years ago.

Any last takers for my extra pair of small Touchtec gloves? Wool with leather palm that can bee used with touch screens. If not I'm returning them to the Lenox mall in Atlanta today where any atlantians can get then for full price.

picked up the andros timex in the last sale.  is anybody else disturbed by the watch's loud ticking?  i can honestly hear the ticking from across a quiet room

 

it looks incredible, but this might be a dealbreaker for me

If anyone has an Authentic Bayswater peacoat in charcoal or possibly black in size small, I would be very interested! Thanks!

I just got my large (slim) university jacket. In short, I really like this jacket. While I don't think it is worth what it was at retail ($275) I would have been happy paying $150-$175 for it. Some quick pro's and con's:

+ Not too heavy (First guess, feels like 18oz)

+ Nice fleece lined pockets (2 interior and 4 exterior)
+ Buttons are sewn well and secure
+ Nice tapered fit through the body

+ Lovely standing collar

+ Wool is what you'd expect (It's fine)

+ Perfect length for what it is (30.5" I believe)

 

- A little tight in the shoulders, but I am picky, it's seriously just a little bit. For those fitting the near exact definition of large (like me) I would still get the slim. The chest would be too roomy in the regular.

- A vent. I really wish this had a single vent. Oh well.

- Workable cuff. Some may like this, I just rather something easier to tailor, but it shouldn't be that much of an issue.

I think this is a wonderful jacket, and I've been impressed with every J.Crew outerwear piece I've gotten this year (winslow jacket, $90 at Mr. Porter was a steal. The field mechanics jacket and this) and I think for people between sizes should size down and get the slim. I was the definition of a large and slim fits great. I think if I wanted to use this more as a top-coat I wouldn't have gotten the slim, but this jacket isn't really meant for it I think because it would just be too big everywhere else -- unless someone wanted to go through it all getting it tailored. 

 

I can post pictures at request as well. :-)

Cheers.

from what i've gathered googling around, the timex quartz movement is much louder than other quartz watches.  i think it is intentionally done to conform with their slogan "it takes a licking, and keeps on ticking".  when digital watches were getting popular, timex increased the volume of the ticking to distinguish itself from the pack
