plaid tab collar shirt
couple of scarves
I liked the Truman, but it fit me kind of oddly (maybe due to it just being tried on almost right out of the box).
The long coat. I did not think I would like this one but it's kinda fun and drapey - could see myself getting it in sale season maybe.
Next shipment should arrive around mid August.
just swung by Jack Straw on my lunch break and tried on the olive baker jacket. i liked the color and material, but i wasn't crazy about the fit. which was fine, i don't really need anymore f/w jackets
i really wanted the terry cloth bedford that i believe was last season. i thought that material worked really well for this style of jacket, but I came around late and never could find a medium. maybe it'll be back around in the spring.
jack straw said he didn't order many shirts this season, mostly jackets. i wanted to see a work shirt in person, the shirt tail seems pretty exaggerated.
