J.Crew Fall/Winter 2012 - Page 15

How do the cotton cashmere sweaters compare to the merino wool?  I have a giftcard to jcrew and want to grab a v-neck sweater.

I have several merino wool sweaters and cardigans from J.Crew, and they're great for layering. Don't have experience with cotton cashmere, but I hear that they stretch with use. I've also heard that J.Crew cashmere sucks in terms of quality.

The merino is much better than the cotton-cashmere.  Holds its shape much better.  Just fold it, don't put it on a hanger, and it should hold up nicely.

I picked up two merino v-necks and on cotton-cashmere blend last week. The difference is subtle but the merino seems to fit better, feels a little slimmer fitting. I got the cotton-cashmere only because there wasn't an equivalent color in the merino.

By the way, I picked up a couple of basic oxford shirts, and the fit is spot on. If you want some good basic shirts, these are great. I got the light blue and the white.

Other recent pickups:

The brown herringbone tweed ludlow sport jacket. Love it!

Two patch-elbow crewneck sweaters (navy and light blue).

A slim-fit secret wash shirt. These are great fitting shirts!

I tried it on in the store and the fit is good. And I like the very basic cut and style. But really, there's not much to this jacket, not enough to warrant the price tag, in my opinion. I'd pick it up if it went on clearance, though.

I've found JCrew's basic oxfords to be consistently decent value for the (sale) price. Fit is almost always really good.

Yeah, even at regular price (under 70 bucks), considering you can pay more for an oxford other places, it's not a bad deal. For me, they're staples, as are some of the more basic secret wash shirts.

Hey guys, looking at a couple different jackets for fall layering, both waxed canvas to deal with rain as well. Whats your opinion on which would be better?

How does it fit? Slim?

Is it effective as a rain coat?

Thanks

Can you post pic(s) of said jacket?

I am ready to pull the trigger but would like to see a real life pic of it.

TIA.

Not really slim, you can layer a good amount under. It's meant to be worn in the rain, that's why I got it. I haven't worn it yet however. I bought it over the summer, still sitting in the closet.

Have had the second for a few years now. It's a pretty heavy jacket, water resistant, not proof. It's developed a nice patina after some pretty hard wear. Small fits very well on my 5'9" 160 lb frame with just enough room for layering. Check ebay for some NWT at 25-30 percent off retail.
