Not a bad looking suit at all for under 250$ but I think it could let out a bit in the chest to get rid of the pulling on the button and the bowing of the lapels. Just personal opinion.

You're probably right. The fabric also doesn't have the softest hand since it's 50/50 wool/cotton.

I bought that same suit and definately looks better on you. I felt like pitbull. You're spot on the color its definately more of a mid grey and it was tighter than other Ludlows at that size. All those factors contributed to me happily returning it. I ended up getting the ludlow in italian linen navy during their 30% off sale a few weeks back. Fit is much more true to size.

They have a few Ludlows in chino and linen on sale right now 25% off retail isn't a bad deal. It's probably the best its going to get before the summer is in full swing. So if your on the fence go for it!

Are you sure thats not a bit tight at the center button? I see that creesing indicative of pulling.

Can someone say what fabrics for shirts are thicker than eachother at jcrew?

 

like

Thickest = Oxford

Middle = poplin

Moderately thin = Heathered poplin

Thinnest = Linnen

 

 

I really like heavy shirts and got an heathered poplin one reacently and was disapointed with how thin it was.

 

I wanted to see if there were any other fabrics that are thick and smooth.

@wj4 The Ludlow seems to look best on smaller frames like yours. Disappointing to hear about the composition of the fabric.

Hey guys,

Curiosity's got the best of me now. I'll try to measure the specs and compare it to my other suit jackets and sport coats.

The fits are all over the place though. There was a Ludlow jacket in a 38 that I tried on, which felt super tight. Arm sleeves were hugging, and I only had a t shirt on, while the two others I have are loose, and fit more like a true 38. Those allow for me to layer with a light sweater under.

Here's one of the sport coats I'm talking about that allows for layering. This is a 38R where as the picture I posted several posts above is a 38S.

For reference, I'm 5'10" at 160 lbs.

Linen and poplin are definitely thin. A white shirt in those fabrics would be pretty sheer. Oxford is rather thick. Of course, there's also flannel.

Seersucker would be mid-range I think, but breathes well which makes it great for hotter days.

I bought a tartan shirt last season that is thin-ish but has no stretch in the material and is very smooth the weave is very very tight. I always thought this was poplin. (Have any idea what this might be?)

 

 

But after getting that new heathered poplin shirt I am not so sure. Becasue that one when i put it up to the light it is somewhat see though and has a good bit of stretch in the weave.

J. Crew website now featuring product reviews. (Look out popover plaid shirts.) Will you dudes be posting reviews of your fav J. Crew items or is does this thread operate in the same way? From the ones that I have read, it looks like quite a few bad reviews are already accumulating re: Slim-Fit Tees and re: Slim-Fit Henley.  

 

EDIT: Somebody really does seem to like the 484 Raws however, and though it might be tantamount to treason, I have to agree with this person.

I'm satisfied with most of the products I had purchased with the exception of the slim-fitted sweat pants as the cotton fabic pills and sticks on to my socks, annoying me to no end as I'm forced to use a rollie on my socks.

No biggie though, since customer service took care of the problem. Just that it would have been one of my favorite pieces among many others had they simply nailed down the choice of fabric.

Looks like they might be rethinking the idea.  Reviews aren't loading on my IE or Firefox.

I wish J.Crew had less online only sales. Adding up shipping, you don't really get a deal even with the discounts. I'd rather just walk into a store and buy what I want.

-I have a pair of the 484 Raw Selvedge. The cut, I think, is similar to APC PS or PNS, with less taper at the hem. The denim itself is thick and the jeans are nicely constructed. The pair I got were on sale, and people will argue that there is better denim at the price point, but I have definitely enjoyed my pair. (No official word yet on the fades, because I have not been wearing my pair every day, and I have not washed them.)
