J. Crew Fall/Winter 2011 Discussion - Page 27

post #391 of 1157
looking for a fall jacket that i can wear it on a regular basis, nothing crazy expensive, any suggestions?

what's the consensus on the woodland jacket? they good?

I liked my Woodland, that is sadly now too big for me, but I found it too warm to wear every day. It's really more of a winter jacket.

What is the general consensus on the JCrew factory outlet merchandise as opposed to the mainline stores? I've worked at BR parttime for years during college and I wouldn't touch BR outlet crap with a ten foot pole.

Products in the factory stores are made specifically for the "factory brand."  The quality is not the best and you will often times find some form of J. Crew embroidered logo on the polo's and some other items which you would not find in the mainline stores.  If you are looking for cheap, disposable shirts, etc. the factory store is ok but if you are looking for long-term wear I would look elsewhere.

 

PS I'm a sales associate/men's personal shopper for J. Crew so if you have any questions about anything let me know and I'll do my best to help you out.

Does the stitching/hem still look like the original when you had it shortened? Like so:
87195_WB2194_d2.tif&width=393&height=393&effects=sharpen(20)&quality=90&profile=jpeg

Thin and then gets a tad wider (along the thinsulate side) like shown in the pic. Mine`s currently at the tailor and I wonder if it would still look untouched except shorter in length

Sorry, I think my post was confusing. My coat is currently unaltered. There were a couple comments about the sleeves needing work, and what I was saying was if I did any altering, it might be to shorten them, not the overall length of the coat - I feel it's already fairly short in a way that I like.

Quality of the factory shirts is total shit, sweaters are pretty bad too. I do have an indigo workshirt that is actually pretty nice though.

in general I'd stay away from the factory stuff.

Anyone on the board currently working at J crew? If so, shoot me a PM please.

I'm a student and make most of purchases online because the nearest store is too far away. Is there anyway I can still get the 15% discount?

i doubt, cuz after all, it's harder to prove that you are a student over the phone or online.

I didn't see this anywhere but men's outerwear is 25% off in-store and the student 15% stacks on top. Picked up a coat today at 100*(1 - .85*.75) = 36.25% off.

^this deal still going on, good. i ma drop by tmrw and see if they got anything good that i can pick up.

By the way, not sure if this has been discussed before but how dumb was it for J Crew to open a store in Canada finally only for it to be Women's only?
