Picked up a couple good pieces from J Crew's latest sale, lambswool athletic sweater, and abingdon messenger bag. The sweater at 40% off, and bag at 50% plus free shipping. Looking forward to those coming.

All in all I feel like I picked up a few good pieces from this season. A donegal cardigan, a pair of chinos, chambray and denim shirts, and what i've got en route. On the topic of sizing and consistency. I feel that the larges i've gotten have been pretty consistent in terms of fit. I'm just under 6'4. 215. I can only really speak to the chinos, sweaters and casual shirts however. It's a bit shocking to hear of some of the experiences others have had with their shirts. One thing I noticed was some inconsistency in terms of colour in some of the chinos in store, which is of course a pretty big issue for any company who sells their items online/catalogue.

The only time I have a problem is when I'm rough on something, e.g., I took a sweater off in a big hurry and accidently ripped a stitch. But it was my own fault, not the quality of the garment.

This is also one reason I don't clean sweaters. I think that is hard on sweaters, and it could have had something to do with this. If you wear another garment, e.g., a button up or t-shirt, under your sweater, you shouldn't pit out a sweater. And it you're warm enough to sweat in a sweater, then you probably should take it off.

I'm not sure if the cleaners did anything to it. I hadn't noticed anything wrong with the sweater when I got it and I've worn it several times (and I've never really had trouble with their sweaters except for the pilling) but I find it strange that it came apart at the stitching.

That's unfortunate, but not all that surprising.  I refuse to buy sweaters from J Crew, even on sale price.

LOL. Really?! I've never had a problem like this with a J. Crew sweater, and I have quite a few. At sale price, some J. Crew sweaters are a good deal.

While I agree, I think fabric selection is important as well. I very much avoid (due to bad experiences) most things in their cotton/cashmere line, but absolutely love their merino sweaters. They have lasted me a long time, hold their shape well, and generally look great.

There was a time when my closet was fully stocked with J Crew sweaters, but I've since moved on to Brooks Brothers.  Their sweaters are miles ahead of J Crew's.

I've looked at Brooks. Their material quality looks okay but I don't like most of their styles.

Cup, I like the J. Crew lambswool as well. I know lambswool doesn't get a lot of credit but for me it's nice and warm and affordable.

I like the J Crew slim cashmere crewneck and v-neck sweaters. They fit well, and the colors can be very sharp. I get lots of compliments when I wear them. The cardigan is also nice.

The fit on the cable knit sweaters isn't as good. There is better quality available for comparable prices (Brooks, RL, Johnston, etc). These are OK in basic colors.

The merino wool is nice. I agree that the cotton/cashmere blend isn't that good.
