I'm really liking the look of these tweed jackets. Anyone have any experience with either?

I found the shoulders on both to be too overly padded and wide for me.

Well they've fit me very well in the past seasons, it's just this time they tweaked them a bit and they're now closer to fitting like RL jackets.

Btw, for those looking for a better alternative to the J Crew merino shawl, look at Rugby's shetland blend shawl. It's better made, MUCH MUCH warmer and far better fitting (shorter and slimmer, even with a heavier weight). Be warned though, this is a serious ass, mating crest level shawl collar. Also their $90 western has MOP buttons, which is amazing.

Some of the clothes on the Rugby site look worth owning. I liked the Campus Duffle Coat but the crest on the left sleeve was a deal killer.

I like the j. crew khaki trench coat.

anyway to round up my jcrew f/w stuff, I got a pair of the garment dyed jeans to serve as 5 pocket khakis, and damn, they are nice. they really improved the classic fit.

Wow, that must be a new item or how else would I have missed it... I actually like the look of it a whole lot more than the J Crew merino shawl. Just wish it was merino wool as that is way more comfortable. Good price, too.

the shetland is a little itchy but I actually got used to it in about 5 minutes, and its much much warmer. j crews merino tens to be pretty thin, and I like my knits to double as outerwear.

Slightly OT, but this month's Domino mag has a nice feature on Jah Cru creative director Jenna Lyons; it has some shots of the first JC catalog from 1983-----wish they'd do a throwback season! Of course, her taste is impeccable.

How is the quality on the Sutherland trench?

I thought it was just me. I've never been able to find a j. crew blazer that came close to fitting right.

Michelle Obama was attired in Jah Cru on the Letterman show, and she look fine, in my humble opinion.
