I had a one of 25% discount code and I used it on the Aldens. I'm a size small in both brands, although I don't have any shirts from J. Crew anymore in a size small. I still drown in them though, tried on the green oxford last week, but still too big for my frame...I need to have the arms and sides taken in, where as Epaulet's small is a great fit off the bat.
Nice, I'm a size large in J Crew for how it fits in the shoulders/chest, but have the same problem with billowing sleeves and a little too much width in the lower half of the body
Unfortunately I live about 3 hours from the nearest J Crew that stocks mens clothing, so I can't really build a good relationship with the sales associates. Hopefully I can charm them next time I am passing through in a week or so.
Actually I just saw that Epaulet will be doing a trunk show in LA on the 22nd... since the J Crew I go to is about 30-45 min away, hopefully I can just make it there and try their shirts on!
Do you mean the 'bench green' stonewashed oxford http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shirts/oxfordshirts/PRDOVR~93060/93060.jsp
? I am thinking about ordering it (ships Oct 16 tho)... disappointed that it doesn't come in a slim fit, though. Is the color the same as the online pics?Edited by thonez - 9/15/12 at 3:39pm
