i really love the j.crew dress pants, but oh man, the suit jackets or blazers don't fit. the 36r is too small and the 38 is just too big. sucks. i was pretty set on buying a ludlow suit a few months ago until i discovered the jackets just don't fit me. ended up getting a jil sander suit on sale for about the same price as a ludlow sit so it ended up working out okay ;)

 

i totally agree about j.crew not having as much stuff that interests me, at least this season. i usually buy about a 3rd of my stuff every season from j.crew, but i ended up buying just one thing from j.crew this season and it was a t-shirt they have had for multiple seasons.

I've only been buying j.crew for a couple years, so I can't speak to the quality of their clothing over time, but they do seem to make a few things well. I love their Oxford shirts, because they seem to have a good variety of colours and they fit my frame pretty well. Their Ludlow suit jackets fit great and are super comfortable. Sweaters and the Wallace and Barnes stuff are also really nice. That said, I don't like most of their SS seasonal offerings and really only look forward to their FW (which is fine because my climate is winter a solid 6 months of the year).

 

I'm just waiting for another 25% + free shipping sitewide code to pick up some t-shirts for summer at this point. They had a really good one late last year that lasted several months I found on one of their mailers.

I bought a pair of J Crew 32x30 chinos last year and they've stretched like crazy. The waist now measures 17" when laying flat so that would be 34" now. Although I don't really remember the fit when I first bought them I think the thighs have also stretched. Anyway, they're just way too big on me now.

 

I'm a TTS 31 waist so I'm about to buy some 30x30 pants. Do other people agree on the stretching? I don't want to buy something too small and then regret it later.

My sun faded chinos definitely stretched.  Both in the waist and in the thigh.  Not sure if the broken in chinos would though.  IIRC they had a built in waist band that would IMO prevent so much stretching.

Good luck.

 

On the worst days, I have trouble in a t-shirt and shorts.

I got some ridiculously good deals at J. Crew stores this weekend (additional 40% off on sale prices).
I got 1 wool ludlow suit pants, 1 bowery wool pants and 1 bowery cotton pants for 105$.

post #910 of 987
This is a decent deal. This suit can be had for $230. Color is more medium gray than light. If your store doesn't have it, they can order it for you.

Jacket is 299.99. Pants is $149.99. Additional 40 percent off and 15 percent off for student.

Jacket is item 07170.
Pants is item 07172.

Has anybody inspected or purchased and could comment on the quality of their ludlow shoes? I'm very interested, because if it's on par with, say, Allen Edmonds, but would be subject to their continual discounts, they could be a nice way to get some good basics at a good price, with a good return policy (alternatives being Meermin in Spain, which is a risk due to enormous shipping costs, or Jack Erwin whose aesthetic may not appeal to everybody). The new penny loafer looks good.

Materials may possibly be of similar quality, but the craftsmanship is poor compared to AE's and the finish can be quite shoddy.

I bought this suit few months back for about $360. It's my second J Crew suit and for this price point I like it.
