    Does anyone here have both the Harris tweed jacket and the Abraham Moon tweed jacket as well? Had a chance to feel both at the J.Crew store briefly, but didn't get a real chance of evaluating the two.

    Curious to see what others think.

    I had last season's Ludlow Tweed, and the cut was different than the standard ludlow fit. Had more structured shoulders etc. Not sure how this season's Harris Tweed jackets are like.

    In terms of material, there's just no comparison. Harris tweed is much heavier, thicker, tougher IMO compared to the Abraham Moon Tweed.

    Regarding the university coat that they are having a final sale on. I figured I'd share the specific measurements given to me by a rep. The slim large has a 49" chest and a 48" waist. The slim medium has a 46" chest and a 45" waist. Basically the thing is enormous. It seems that one should size down if he feels like getting one.

    Also while we are on the topic of wool coats, is it possible for tailors to take in the waist without taking in the chest just beneath the armpit?

    I've tried both, I own only the Abraham Moon. The Moon is a softer tweed. I prefer it, maybe because it stands out a little from the usual tweed, maybe because it feels a little more luxurious. The fit is nice without being overly slim; it's basically the Ludlow fit. My sleeves feel just slightly long, as I like to show a little more shirt cuff than is customary, so I might get that altered eventually. But other than that, I think it's a great jacket.

    Thanks for the details. I'm generally quite a fan of the quality of Harris tweed, but wonder if I can save myself the 100-200 by going with the Abraham moon without compromising any real quality.

    Merry Christmas Eve everybody btw

    Merry Christmas, all. What kind of sales does J. Crew historically have the day after Christmas?

    Last time I checked the clearance part of the local store, there was junk. The final sale items online look like nothing to get excited about either. I'm hoping for wider sales in January.

    Local J Crew had a bunch of different fair isle sweaters (almost all sizes on hand) in the clearance rack near closing on the 24th, as well as a bunch of other sweaters. Might be worth checking out if you've been holding off on getting one.

    Not a big fan of the fair isle style, overall. But thanks. Darn it, though, if I didn't go to the store anyway and pick up a non-sale item, the mast stripe slub jersey long-sleeved crewneck t-shirt. (It replaces one that I got too big a few years back, so the purchase is rationalized.) Incredibly simple shirt but I feel so cool and relaxed in it.

    My retail therapy today also included three vintage repp-style neckties (one by Southwick) and a new Harris Tweed by Wigens driver's cap.

    Want a few things in the sale section on the website: should I hit up the extra 25% off that ends tonight, or hold off for a better deal?

    buy now before it's gone. 5% more ain't worth the risk of waiting
