Thanks in advance.

Why... why on earth would you take a casual, J. Crew shirt to the dry cleaner... and have it STARCHED?? puzzled.gif

Well, obviously I made a mistake that's why I'm on here looking for a solution.

I have a new season (FW '13) ludlow sports coat in flannel and I was curious if anyone has any experience with letting a ludlow jacket out a very small amount. Just a tad tight when I have it buttoned up. The sales associate said it did have some extra fabric, and I could go to a good tailor and spend about ~$75 to have it professionally altered.. He almost sounded a little hesitant with the advice though. I know generally speaking it's easier to take in versus let out, but the 38 would have been much too large in the shoulders. Anyone happen to have any experience? Thanks very much

Just got the shipping email on this jacket. I'm excited to get it.

If I didn't have a top coat already, I'd consider picking one up if I didn't want to spend much more money on one. It's a staple piece.

I agree. I wouldn't pay full price for anything at J Crew. I'm glad that at least every once in a while they allow their sales to include some of their nicer (i.e. Ludlow) items. There was a 20% code a few weeks back that even worked on Aldens for a day.

You should have no problems. It's just a regular suit. You can have them let out or taken in, it doesn't really matter (unless it's extreme).

It worked out well for me and I intend on using the same gentlemen again when I make my next purchase.


This is good to know. I was about to order some sunglasses, but might see if I can get my girlfriend to order them with the student discount. Had assumed this would be a no-go since the disclaimer says 3rd party merchandise is excluded.

Got this jacket today. It's heavier than I thought but it'll be great in the late fall and winter.

^ Didn't pull the trigger on that jacket, but will definitely get the topcoat in the same colorway.

It's identical to my other J Crew ludow suit jacket. I like the fit b/c I only need o get the sleeves shortened. You can try on any ludow jacket at a J Crew to determine fit.

^ How heavy/thick is the fabric/jacket? It looks like a heavy tweed to me, but I'm not entirely sure.

 

Thanks.

It is a heavy tweed. It's in line with other tweed jackets that I have.

Hello, I hate paying retail price at j.crew though, I like buying things at j.crew outlet store although they are from over-stock or not from current season. Products are priced decently & reasonably at outlet store, I believe. What do you think?

post #345 of 983
doesn't j.crew have things made specifically for their outlet stores?
