J.Crew Fall/Winter 2012 - Page 44

post #646 of 1020
was I just hallucinating, or did this jump in price from like $130ish to $230??

I guess $130 doesn't make sense since it's "wallace and barnes"....but still I could've sworn........................

Was going to post about the decent sized order I placed, but I've been busy of late.  That being said I did get the Buffalo Check CPO shirt.  My advice, don't bother.  I like the fit, but not as much as an overshirt.  That's do to my build though, so it might work better for most.  Still I'd wear it over a henley or something.  The pattern and buttons are great.  Just looking at it again, it looks a really dark navy (and not black) and red buffalo check.  I'd noticed the buttons were navy right away.  They're anchor buttons btw.  Anyway, why wouldn't I recommend it?  Wool on it really itches.  I'm not too bothered by wool, especially from the bicep down when I have a t-shirt underneath, but this one really bothers me.  It also bugs me where it hits my neck.  I haven't returned it yet, but that wool is a likely deal breaker.  By comprison I have the AW11 Woolrich Woolen Mills PPO shirts.  They have the same sort of button, nearly identical, which actually is a point in J Crew's favor as I wouldn't have expected that button.  Still the fabric on the Woolrich PPO shirts is sooo much nicer.  Still a wool, but much more refined.  Hope that helps. 

 

I'd like to get the Black Watch shirt myself.  I'm assuming at $350 it's a much more refined wool.  Just went to sale on the site though and they only have xs left.  Must have moved their inventory to the stores.

J. Crew, for instance, makes its cashmere sweaters—including its Crew Cuts sweaters for children—from Loro Piana yarn. But the company has contracts with the Italian manufacturer that require it to keep mum.

Store credit, yep :)

They had a huge selection of their secret wash shirts in all sizes, my local J.Crew has a tiny selection of XS which is what I take. In the back they had a large selection of suits. I walked out with a pair of the 484 chinos and the selvedge indigo denim shirt. I wish I had a Men's Store where I live, I don't live in LA. They were even offering a free haircut and shave, first come first serve. I think I spent well over an hour in there.

Haircut and shave??

that's pretty screwed up on their part. i dont even see it on their website anymore so i guess S&D overruled their sense of business ethics

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll see if I can ask them to price match (doubtful...but I've had good luck with their customer service so far, so might as well try).

By the way, how do you like it? I think someone else said that the color is not as blue in real life... a little more gray?

I also JUST noticed that this sweater has elbow patches.. hmm. The online rep says she'll price match for me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifnod[1].gif

Cop or not? I like the look and it's deeply discounted right now. Originally $288 down to $218 where I'll use the 25% off to take it to $163.50.

does anyone have the Slim Waffle Henley and can you comment on the fit/size/quality?  Can anyone compare it to the American Apparel baby thermal long sleeve henley?  I have a bunch of those and love the fit....

 

thanks!

Does anyone have any experience with the Wallace and Barnes selvedge denim?

 

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/theliquorstore/denim/PRDOVR~99584/99102790023/ENE~1+2+3+22+4294967294+20~~~0~90~all~mode+matchallany~~~~~wallace%20and%20barnes%20dark/99584.jsp

 

Oddly, the 484 cords fit perfectly but the 484 denim fits me too tight in the thighs. The slim-straight cut is just too baggy for me.

 

I'm currently in some Made in the USA Levi 511's (not raw) that have stretched perfectly. But I'm trying to find ONE more pair of jeans that fit just slightly looser.

 

I was on the chat with J.Crew and she said the W&B were supposed to fall right inbetween the two in-house fits.

 

Worth the $210 (after 30%)? Another option was the LVC 505.

 

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/denim/selvedge/PRDOVR~17342/17342.jsp

 

Kind of a bummer that the model isn't made in the USA at that price point...but Levi's appears to not make any USA 505's anymore.

 

Basically, I'm looking for some selvedge denim that's already pre-shrunk so I don't have to deal with crazy amounts of stretching or fading. And all the other big selvedge names (APC, Tellason, etc) seem to be all raw.

No experience with the W&B selvedge, but I know these Wings + Horns straight fit come in an OK wash and are USA made. Might be a decent alternative to the aforementioned, and could probably be found on sale somewhere now.
