post #106 of 989

They do have site-wide coupons from time to time.

So has anybody picked up anything new recently, either S/S13 or sale stuff? Just curious.

The Prestons break in nicely. They're comfortable. I walked what seemed like miles in the O'Hare airport and felt fine in them (though I did have to give them a good airing out when I got home).
They polish up nicely too with some Kiwi dark brown polish and a horse brush. The heel and sole are very dense--and it took some getting used to something so solid and substantial. My usual go-to is a Clarks DB.

I'm pleased.

Anyone have any feedback on the Ludlow shirts? I own a couple of Ludlow suits and wanted to get an opinion on those. Thanks in advance.

I own three and I'm on the fence about them. I'm not sure I like the collar--it feels a bit small. The material also seems a bit thin. I probably won't buy more of these.

In all seriousness, I like JC Penny Stafford dress shirts, in slim fit, much better.

Thanks. I'm gonna buy 1 for a test ride. Getting it for $45 so figure why not. If I like it, I'll get more. All my ties are J. Crew (I feel their ties are underrated) and with the suit in tow, wanna see how the trifecta flows.

The collars on those Ludlow dress shirts look ridiculously small. There's no way those collar points hide behind jacket lapels, as conventional wisdom says should be the case. J.Crew ties are much too skinny for my tastes as well. Quit falling for fashunz and stick to classical proportions.

Is there an ETA on when the next 30% off sale would be? I know it is seasonal but any insight might hold me off from buying a couple of things before the summer. Thanks for any information in advance. worship.gif

LOL! I wonder how many times this has been asked in this and other J. Crew threads.

Is there a perception out there that because this is a J. Crew thread we somehow have special insight or and inside track to the J. Crew marketing plan?

Seriously. Dude, call J. Crew's customer service phone number. There's also a live chat thing with a customer service rep.

Maybe he thinks there might have been some notification of a sale, or someone who works for J.Crew that might know? Either way, J.Crew seems to seldom go on sale. Club Monaco, on the other hand, seems to have sales on at least once a month.

+1. Seriously, it wasn't that ridiculous of a question. This forum is full of people who work for certain retailers and may have access to "insider" information. Hell, another thread I subscribe to is called "When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale?".

Anyway, in response to the dude's question, I have no idea. From what I've observed, it seems J.Crew runs a 30% off or so site-wide promotion maybe once every 3-4 months.

Anyone have experience with the 484 selvedge jean?

Any comment on fit and quality compared to Levi's M&C slim?

It may be a matter of preference, but it seems like you could do better at that price point. The APC Petit Standard (which is slightly more slim-fitting than the J. Crew denim) or the APC New Standard, which the 484 is a basic copy of, are both better in quality and finish. (The 484 comes with the weird little selvedge embellishment on the coin pocket and an unfinished inseam.) Also, for the same price you should check out United Stock Dry Goods Narrow/ Slight Fit which are also comparable and better, and less expensive, I think. Not sure about the Levis.
