    I just now checked this thread again. Yes, I am. A couple more and we can do an SF in Omaha meet. Picket the J Crew or something.

    Kind of basic/plain, but I'd thought this would work well underneath either of my brown leather jackets, with my usual cream safari shirt and jeans:

    I have that one. Unlike my recent bad experience with the shawl collar, this particular cardigan fits perfectly, and seems to be high quality stuff--nice details, solid material and construction. It's light, simple, and classic.

    I think its a good product, kind of a throwback to their glory days of the early 90s when they made good stuff. I just am not sure if its worth $85, is there a coupon anyone is aware of, or an alternative, for say $40?

    What bad experience did you have w/ the shawl collar? I'm thinking of getting some sweaters from J.Crew -- which should I avoid? EDIT: nevermind, found your post in the cardigan thread.

    I tried to get some sizing advice from j. crew customer service on the Spencer Jersey Cardigan. I'm probably more confused now. There seems to be little difference between the dimensions of a L and an M, in the body lenght, sleeves, and shoulders, and even the chest--only about an inchin each area. But then the chest size drops quite a bit with an S--from a 43 and 42 in the L and M, respectively, to a 39 in the S.

    I'm worried that if I go all the way to an S I'll end up with something too tight. At the same time, I was really swimming in the L.

    I'm very interested in a few of the gloves and hats J Crew offers this fall. The only thing disappointing about J Crew is the prices considering everything is made in China.

    Some of the accessories seem to be made in the UK.

    It's very soft, though it doesn't feel sturdy like a flannel from Filson might.

    I think a few of my J Crew ties are made in the USA.


    Also, does anyone know how the quality is on the wool/cashmere Sutherland topcoat?

    I'm 5'10", 160#s, 38" chest and the small fits me perfectly. I bought a medium at first but it was a little bit too big in the shoulders and the sleeves were too long. I would order both and send back the one that doesn't fit.

    No that's the back, so there's no reason to assume that the droop in the fabric is the result of... oh.

    Thanks. Is it meant to look oversized? The thing that really bothered me about the large was that there was no waist suppression--fit like a tent, straight from the shoulders, and well past the belt/pocket line. Does yours fit closer? (In other words, like the model pics?)

    This is a bit ridiculous, I just clicked on another flannel shirt that was supposedly on sale, but when I click on it, FULL PRICE.

    Why do they do this to me?

    Their website is a mess.. I almost never buy anything online from them anymore.

    Besides, the sales in stores are so much better -- this weekend they had an extra 50% off the sale items in store.. I picked up two shirts at $15 each. (And $10 purcell-knockoffs...)

    I just got home and checked the ties and they are indeed made in the USA.

    Everything else is China though.
