It seems like this year there were more options when it came to heavy wool trousers than in the past. If stock sizes hold up well for winter clearance, I think a lot of good stuff will be had.

I'm still a little miffed that Alden is not sold in the Toronto store but from what the sales associate told me, it was Alden, not J. Crew behind that.
Picked this up today at the clearance store for $60. Fit is spot on in a medium. Nice and trim fitting, very comfortable. Much better price than the current $148 online price.
Asheville is probably as robust a retail area as Charleston, and yet we're given sort or a medium-tier store.
They're running a 30% off sale items right now. Walked by a store to see if anything worthwhile was there. Mostly scraps. Saw this for $80 + 30% off ($56) and picked it up.
Any opinions on these shoes?
Are you sure you're trying your correct size? Don't go by the J. Crew sizing chart. It is biased toward the large, in other words, you might have to size down to get a better fit. If I follow the J. Crew measurements, I'm a large but a large will fit me like a sack. A medium is almost spot on.
Agreed-although the mediums tend to vary in shirt and sweater sizing, and that's not to mention the fit of the Wallace & Barnes stuff (which varies from last year, from my perspective), or the coats and jackets, which are all over the map. Too bad, because their designs are awesome and, most of the time, are relatively affordable. But I never get too excited about ordering something from the catalogue until I have had a chance to try it on at home. Which might just be a rule for ordering anything off the Inter-Webs.
