J.Crew Fall/Winter 2012 - Page 62

Buying $53 sweaters is killing you?
post #917 of 1020
It adds up.

But not really killing me, no. I'm actually pretty thrilled to find this stuff. I had to ask for the $53 sweater, though. They still had it at full retail but they gave me final sale price (plus 40 percent off) when I told them it was a final sale item online.

We're in the same boat bro. Good stuff lol.

Yeah, I'm glad I didn't jump on these things at full retail earlier in the season. Some stuff never goes on sale, and if you want it enough, you just have to bite the bullet and go for it. A lot of stuff, though, does go on sale and it pays to be patient.

Ordered these:

This, in navy, 90 bucks! Cashmere! James Bond/Steve McQueen cool!

And this, in heather indigo, 28 bucks!

Free shipping. Woo hoo.

This has to stop.

Maybe I'm a loser but there is plenty of excitement in this for me. My first cashmere. My first turtleneck sweater since college. And there is something about a rollneck that is just cool.

If you were referring to the white Sun Washed Oxford shirt that was (temporarily) on sale, I did ask the electronic SA and she informed me that the reason it was still shown in the section but no longer at that price was because it was no longer on sale. Which lead me to believe that they have limited quantities they would like to get rid of.

Hey guys. In case you all didn't know already, in-store sale items are 50% off and you can stack it with your student discount.

Also spring stuff drops on the 30th online, 31st in-store.

post #923 of 1020

Well I have some questions for y'all.  Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.

 

-So the extra 50% off sale, is that at every store or select stores?

-Couple of things I'm looking for that I'm not seeing locally here that I was wondering if anyone has spotted in their local stores:

The Dodocase would be in the sailcloth, which is the grey and grey variant.  The Wallace and Barnes blackwatch shirt is listed as full price, but I'd guess it's sale in store.  Anyone spotted it?  Also, if anyone knows of any stores with a lot of Wallace and Barnes. 

 

A couple of musings from this thread:

 

Robert, you must be one of the most stylish guys in all of Asheville.  Love that town btw.  I'm assuming the only J. Crew is the one just outside of the Biltmore.  On a personal note, you wouldn't front a band and have a record label would you?  Oh, and ignore the dumb comments about $53.  BTW, do you have either of these already?

Or that Cashmere Tneck?  How's the fit?  I don't do a slim in J Crew shirts, but the regular fit shirts are fine.

 

 

 

As for J. Crew, a real mixed bag this year.  IMO it's like that every year.  This bag looks really good though:

Crew ties that you like.  The wool ties are made in New York and they're very nice.  The fairisle ones they did this season, I grabbed the lighter white/grey variant, are nice as well.  Made in Italy in fact and look nearly the same as the Engineered Garments ones, but at a much lower price.   

 

On the flip side I thought their sweaters generally were poor though.  I was excited to get this Fairisle cardigan they'd had, but when I felt it in store it was a big "no".  Horrible hand feel to it.  Oh, and that SNS Herning knockoff of sorts that everyone was fawning over, the cardigan.  Oof.  Got it online and it felt awful.  Horrible sweater.  Their secret wash shrits are alright, but a bit long.  Banana Republic's soft wash shirts are just as good and some of the patterns are better and BR practically gives the stuff away sometimes.  In fact the've got a few nice ones on the website right now.  I think you can half J Crew and half Banana Republic on those as they both make some bad ones.  Outerwear at J. Crew is kinda junky too.  Granted I've spent a small fortune on outerwear this season and I'm addicted to pricey enough brands, but generally J. Crew's outerwear doesn't impress me.  Chinos are alright.  I've done the Stantons.  Not nearly as good as my Banana Republic vintage straights from a year or two ago, but their current vintage straights aren't the same.

BLAUG, you sure do write a lot. Tneck and rollneck are in transit. Will report upon their arrival. Yes, J. Crew's in the Biltmore district, but there is a clearance store (not a factory outlet but a clearance store) in the Brevard area. I've gotten some great deals there, including the Bayswater peacoat for $40.
post #925 of 1020

Rang up some of the higher profile stores today looking for the Red Wings and a few other items today.  No luck and the general answer I got was they're online only.  Was able to grab the Dodocase I wanted.  Free shipping, proper sales tax and they matched the online price while giving me 50% off too.  Not the initial Dodocase I wanted, but I don't think the one I really wanted has a camera hole.  Great deal for a Dodocase though.

 

Hit up one of the two local stores here tonight just before they closed and their sale section was gutted.

Yes, I do.  smile.gif

 

Interesting.  Never heard of a clearance store.

Now that I've filled out a lot I'm going to re-visit J Crew stuff.. Oh Robert, hello from Raleigh icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I might try to get that Timex naval watch, it's on sale and was at my local store.. 50% off that would be pretty dope.

Well if you like the Nato strap look, you don't have to go the Timex route.  I've picked up some nice brand new Victorinox Swiss Army watches for about 80% off on eBay and just grabbed some Nato straps to go with them.  Anyway, if you find another watch you like better than the Timex you can still do that look as they make those Nato straps in various sizes and there are plenty available on eBay.  Next I'm looking for a watch with an orange face or bezel and then I'll get a camo Nato strap to add to it.
