Totally agree. Definitely prefer the side vents two a center vent.

Is it just me, or are these sale prices WAY higher than they used to be? Everything's only $10 or $20 off. WTF?

Any recommendations with regard to sizing for the J. Crew Vintage slim-straight selvedge jeans? For reference, I sized down two to a 34W in the Naked & Famous Slim Guy and GAP Authentic fit selvedge denim (discontinued). Do these stretch much? Thanks in advance!

J.Crew vanity sizes a lot, so go 1-2 sizes down from true waist size to get the right fit. For reference, I have a 30.5" waist and I wear a 29 in J.Crew.

In regards to the jeans themselves, they're not raw, so they're not going to stretch much. They'll stretch a little if you don't wash them, but that's the case with any pair of pants, really.

Did JCrew change their fit this season? I went in to pick up some new shorts and ended up also buying a lightweight cotton button up they had on sale. I have always needed a Large Tall in JC, but it was a straight Large and ended up fitting my arms well. Seemed much slimmer too. Not complaining as I had all but given up on JCrew's fits. smile.gif

Also picked up a short sleeve oxford, some cheap flip flops and a straw hat for $6. Good deals in the store right now with an extra 30% off sale items.

Not that I'm aware of. And they're now doing 40% off sale in-store and online, just so you know.

Ah really? I leave town in the morning, but otherwise I might be tempted to ask for a price adjustment. Just bought the stuff on Saturday.

Regarding the fit, it really is different then my last couple purchases from JC. Longer and slimmer. Maybe it's just a one off sizing change for that shirt.

Guys, whats the fit like on their shirts? Regular fit and slim fit, around what pit to pit should I be expecting? Do they fit smaller or bigger than Uniqlo oxfords? I'm 5'10 140lbs so probably either XS or S .

Also, for their shorts, as I know they are vanity sized, but how much should I size down. My pants/shorts usually sit at around 32" waist, so either 30 or 31 I'm guessing?

RE: Shirts, you're going to drown in them. I'm 5'9'' at 155 lbs and I drown in a size small shirt from J. Crew. The neck size and sleeve length are great fit though. Back in college when I couldn't afford better shirts, I would just buy J. Crew shirts and pay my tailor $15 to take in the arms and sides of the shirt to properly fit me.

Hey Joe (and all others interested),

I've had a job with J. Crew Factory since earlier in the summer and hence can give you a breakdown on how the standard sizing in Men's Long Sleeve shirts like the Point Collar or the Gingham above work.

A Medium is a 15-151/2 in the neck (in at least the Haberdashery shirts, the neck size is listed on the tag but as far as I know this rule applies to all Men's long sleeve Factory shirts that come in standard sizes) and a 34-35 in the sleeves. To know any of the sizes add or subtract an inch in both neck and sleeve. So, a Large is a 16-161/2 Neck and a 35-36 Sleeve and a Small is a 14-141/2 Neck and a 33-34 Sleeve.

I apologize if you guys happened to know this already, but I figured I'd toss it in, in the off chance it helps anybody out.

When do you think J Crew will start having Fall/Winter stuff? There are a few summer items that I want that I just know will be pushed to the Sales section once the Fall/Winter gear is out.

Don't suppose there are any coupons or codes floating around? I'd kill for a pair of those purple 484 chinos.
