J. Crew Fall/Winter 2011 Discussion - Page 6

post #76 of 1157
I'm kind of in between a small and medium for J. Crew and I got a medium in a sweater and I think it is the best size for me... I do put it in the dryer so account for that.

Good but not great deal when you can get it comfortably under $100.

The only ludlow sport coat I bought was their herringbone linen one. It fit well everywhere except the arms seemed a bit baggy so I just had them fixed at the tailor.

When do you guys think the next percent-off sale will be? I'd like to buy the chambray, but I don't want to pay full price.

wow, those Chippewa boots are great looking...impressive.

As for having a J Crew thread...I think it's good. They do some ok basics and great colab stuff. I picked up a fair amount of their stuff in my early days, and while I've moved on from it I still check out what they have on occasion, mostly for the colab stuff though.

J Crew has a bunch of nice knit ties right now. All way too narrow. frown.gif

I'm curious because mall stores like J.Crew are all I go to right now, I haven't been at this for very long. What have you moved on too, and what difference in price and quality do you see?

 

As for the next J.Crew sale, I asked my friend that works there and he responded "after Christmas." J.Crew ostensibly wants a high end clothing reputation and does so by quality (debatable), price, and not having sale signs plastered everywhere every other week. They remind me of Nordstrom because of this.

Look around here and check out the shops that everyone talks about (online of course since you can't visit them all personally obviously). My personal favorite is Context because they are local and I am able to go in there and check stuff out. I buy most of my clothes from them these days. Also check out Epaulet, Self Edge, Union Made, Inventory, Drinkwaters, and lots more you can learn about here.

As far as what I've moved onto, well, lots of different stuff. Brands in my closet now include: Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments, Epaulet, RRL, Sunny Sports, Sugar Cane, Iron Heart, KMW, W+H, APC, Somet, and Dry Bones. I have a couple J Crew shirts left that get some wear occasionally, and a fatigue jacket that I actually like surprisingly well and wear often. In general they are more expensive but have higher quality materials and construction as well as more unique styles and fits in some cases.

I think you can look decent dressed by J Crew, but you'll look like lots of other guys who wear the same stuff. You'll also be settling for shirts of decent but unremarkable quality. If all you care about is looking decent, then don't worry about it. I think J Crew makes that easy for the average guy who doesn't really care much beyond that. Chances are however, since you're here, you care about more than just looking decent. You have an interest in clothes and probably in the quality, design, fit and fabrics of them. If that is the case do yourself a favor and explore what all is out there. There is a lot.

Compared to other SW&D brands, I would say the quality of J Crew shirts, pants,... are hard to beat.

This. Their collaborations are often excellent. Mind you, they so seem to have got more expensive and I tend to pick up any basics I need in their online sales and clear-outs.

 

The thing is too that for those worried about looking a J-Crew clone, or like 'lots of other guys', just mix it up with some more unusual stuff. I loved their coral Stanton pants this summer, but I wouldn't wear them with anything else J-Crew. And in any case, pink is a colour most Canadian guys seem to fear to wear, whereas I love a bit of pink in the mix so I am not in much danger of looking like everyone else up here.

LL Bean has them under the name Katahdin Iron Works Boots. It looks like they have a lug sole this season, but I have a pair from about five years ago that looks a lot like the JCrew ones except with a cap toe. They have EE sizing and mine have no external branding (LL Bean label inside tongue). Chippewa also has their own website. They don't sell directly, but you can find a retailer close to you or it will take you to on line options like Zappos.

Never bought a JCrew sweater before. I wear a small in tshirts and polos, and a XS in button up shirts. Can anyone give me feedback on which size to get for sweaters and quality?

i wear S in their button ups, and size up one in their sweaters (M).

I bought a M sized belstaff jacket from this seller on ebay. It fits awful and I hate it, but she only gives store credit for returns. I have about 500$ to spend. What should I get? Are any of these coats decent?
