    That's good to know. I guess I was most interested in the feel of the Moon. Thanks for your time.

    I still don't know. I'm a whore for herringbone and would certainly get the Harris if it was. The Moon looks really quite awesome but I already have a cashmere sport jacket in an almost identical (herringbone) colorway. Hmmm.

    ^ I also have the J Crew Moon tweed jacket and I love it. It did stretch a bit & it certainly softened up a good amount after a week or so break in. It is very sturdy and I prefer it over the Harris.
    In short you can't go wrong buying one of these, it's my new go to cold weather sport coat for work and weekend.

    Yep, I've been wearing my Moon jacket a lot lately as the weather cools down. Very versatile. I've worn it with dress shirt and ties, or just a casual shirt. Goes well with jeans as well as chinos and even dressier trousers. Great jacket.

    Getting my Ludlow suit tailored. The guys that marked the alterations for me in the local J. Crew store said they were impressed how spot-on the fit was even without tailoring. I don't need to do anything to the jacket except, out of personal preference, taking the sleeves up about 1/4 inch to show off more sleeve. The pants were puddling just a bit so the inseam is going up about an inch or so, but the waist and the fit throughout is perfect, nice and slim without being overly tight.

    I am going to wear this suit to death. This is not hanging in the back of the closet for special occasions. I am planning on wearing this at least a couple of times to work just for the hell of it.

    I have an ancient suit that I got in the 90s in what was regarded as a top tier department store. My God, what a box. Either I really was a lot bigger then (I have lost some weight but I can't believe I was ever huge as this suit would have you believe). The lapels are aboutn 4 inches wide, there's not taper in the waist, and you could almost fit two of me in the pants.I can't believe I wore that suit to job interviews and still got the job!

    More like a full size. I'm a 9D (almost 9.5D) and I the 8D indys are almost too big for me.

    FYI, and i think someone has already mentioned this, the twill dot shirt fits slimmer than the regular cut shirts. It's not quite as trim in the waist as the slim fit, but it's pretty close. It's a super nice shirt, the best in quality i've ever received from jcrew.

    I ordered a peacoat on Tuesday and mine is still with that status, too. Hasn't shipped out yet; I shot them an email and they say it's being prepared to be shipped out.

    I think they're just hammered from the recent sales.

    My order is at "Released." No idea what that means.

    Ordered a ton of stuff yesterday with the 30% off (Christmas, fuck yeah [​IMG]). Most notably the W&B Cable Cardigan, Deck Jacket and the Saint James shirts in each color (lol). I've been eyeing those shirts forever and finally got them on sale.

    Do J Crew oxford shirts (not the secret wash shirts) have box pleats in the back?

    Yeah but they are tiny... either 1.25 or 1.5 inches wide

    Kind of annoying tbh... not sure what the point of having them is.

    If you do live chat and send them a link to the picture, they might be able to figure it out.
