Then it seems pretty obvious. It was a return. Call customer service.

I tried it once with my brown tweed and had mixed feelings about it.

I dislike many posts on TSB, especially Dan's. But I do dig Townsend's and Alex's personal styles.

Especially since full retail on this shirt is only $25.

If you like J. Crew shirts, you might want to check out some of the JCP stuff.

Unfortunately, JCP doesn't make them for men with smaller frames (size XS).

I agree. I find that's true more and more. They really do have a try-too-hard aesthetic.And I'm really tired of the high-water pants look they endorse.

That's too bad. But you're right. The smallest size I saw was an S. Maybe as they grow their customer base, they'll start doing XS.

Anyway, what do you think of the quality, aside from fit?

A lot of Barbour is now made in Bulgaria (including the much coveted sports jacket). There's absolutely nothing wrong with it and in fact, I doubt you'll find a Barbour hood made anywhere else.

I see. My Classic Beaufort was made in England, so I assumed the hood to be the same.

No idea. Didn't see an XS online, so decided against a visit to JCP.

Wow, that's weird.

Any of you dogs know if they will come out with different colors of this shirt? It's the slim broken-in polo.

Definitely. You'll just have to wait.

Realized I've never tried J.Crew ties in the past. You guys ever try them out and know how the quality is?

Saw this TIe-Q thing today and it got me interested.

Yeah, but, to me at least, the only real polos to get are the vintage or the pique. They're the only ones that are classic versions. The broken-in is a weird bastard child.

I have two knit (black, navy) and one wool striped. They are very good. I always get compliments on the knit ones.

I bought a number of wool ties last year.  Very nice and all made in the USA.  Got a knit fairisle tie this year and noticed it was made in Italy.  Looks identical to the Engineered Garments version, which also is made in Italy, at a much cheaper price.
