What's your weight and build? If you're not jacked or on the chubby side, I suggest you go with their slim shirts.

Their size small actually fits better than slim small. All the measurement is same between S and slim S except the length of the shirt.

 

I dunno, maybe is just me.

I wear XS exclusively, but the slim shirts are cut slightly narrower around the chest, waist, and sleeves. That isn't to say that J.Crew has improved their cuts recently. Maybe the regular shirts are now slimmer than they used to be.

Hmm. I dunno. I think the combinations are interesting. I tried the blazer/jacket idea today--not sure it worked with my brown tweed, and maybe would have worked better with a thinner blazer in a grey or light blue. But it was fun giving it a shot.

I didn't see any slim shirts from land's end. I didn't know they made them in slim. The fit actually isn't too bad. If I were really picky, I'd get them taken in a little.

It's definitely interesting and often blogged about, but I'm more afraid of my sportcoat/topcoat ripping with the slightest movement. Not worth spending more to get a larger size to accommodate the denim jacket. If you ask me, it's just another marketing tactic.

After today's effort, I would tend to agree. I won't do it again. It felt a little too tight for comfort. It was nice and warm though.

However, I think I still want to try some of the other combinations, like with the fatigue jacket, the rain jacket, and another rugged piece of outerwear. I've got a J. Crew millerain (sp?) fireman's jacket from a few seasons ago that would have room for this.

Wish that I had picked up the Heathfield jacket when it was still in stock. I tried it out in stores and it was a perfect fit. Wonder if anybody on B&S has one for sale...

What's so special about it?

I bought the blue Heathfield on this most recent 25% of sale items for around $120 total. Thought they had been sold out of size small for awhile, but must have found a few somewhere. I'm so happy I picked it up. I had been trying to preorder since last spring when I was told they weren't even going to make it. Glad I waited for the sale price. It really is a great piece. Great length, great sleeve length, nice and slim, perfectly versatile spring outer layer. I'm not a huge J Crew fan, usually just stick to the third party stuff and some of the sweaters, but this was a really good piece.

Original price on the heathfield is a bit ridiculous.

Damn, no kidding. I'm looking for the Heathfield jacket, too. Would have snapped it up at $120 total.

Twill dot shirt currently available in xs and s with an extra 30 off.

I grabbed the British millerain fatigue coat a couple of years ago at the clearance store for a ridiculously low price. Something under 100 bucks. It's a large, which fits a bit big on me, but damn, I love it and i wear it anyway. A bulky sweater fills it out a little. If you guys get this, I'd recommend sizing down one from your usual J. Crew size.
