I have bought recently some oxford shirts from Jcrew and I'm in love with them. Pretty awesome quality got them on sale so makes it even better.
But are the flannels from Jcrew Factory the same quality as Uniqlo? Uniqlo flannels are kind of cheap feel material.
I'll buck the trend and say that if you like some of the factory shirts, get them. I don't think you'll regret them. I'd say that they're one of the things I trust from the factory. Plus, you can get them on sale a lot at the store and if you get lucky, you'll get them on clearance before the end of the season. That's not easy to do though as the flannels sell VERY quickly. You might have a hard time getting something decent after Black Friday.
I'm always curious to hear why people think that they're crap?
Just keep in mind, the flannels and work shirts don't fit the same as the tailored shirts. They're cut a little boxier.
