J.Crew Fall/Winter 2012 - Page 68
Styleforum Top Picks
Lots of people over at dappered.com seem to like it. I don't know. I think you're better off saving up for the real thing, i.e., the J. Crew Ludlow. The fit always looks a bit off to me with the factory suit, especially the pants.
With all due respect, I wouldn't go with a lot of the Dappered crowd on anything. It's reverse of some of the SF crowd. I mean they did some store wars thing and J Crew Factory store beat out Amazon.
Wearing it right now. I had to get it tailored up quite a bit, and it is still not as slim as I had hoped. Material is nice and I actually like the stripes, makes it a little different than your standard blue blazer.
Agree! That was kind of my point. Some of their information is.... interesting. I tried on some JCP stuff after some recommendations there, and I have to say, the JCP stafford dress shirts are okay, especially in slim fit, and especially if you can get them under $20. But yes, the aesthettic is different there, for sure. They don't seem to like white jeans, for example. LOL.
On another point: 30 percent off final sale in the store today! For around $20, I picked up that OCBD-like navy shirt from this past/fall winter. Can't find a picture right now, but it's the one with thinner material and a button pocket and brown buttons. Very nice shirt, especially at this price.
