    Spent the weekend in Vegas and stopped by J Crew for the first time. Was very disappointed with the selection; they had very little of the products in the latest catalogue available and needless to say didn't have the red chambray.

    J. Crew in Vegas? Any chance it was an outlet?

    It was their store in the Fashion Show mall.

    Purchased the nail head shirt in a small - loving this shirt to be quite honest.

    I almost picked that one up, too. Felt too heavy, though, for me to wear in spring/summer.

    Must just be a poorly stocked store. Some are better than others.

    I ended up getting the Timex Camper on amazon this morning. I'm not too worried about it being too small. I checked out the Expedition Camper at Wal-Mart yesterday and I liked the size of it. I'd assume they are the same size. I also love that it's a 24 hour watch. May or may not attempt installation of NATO bands on it. Might just get the other Timex at Wal-Mart and use that one for changing out the bands.

    Lucky Brand has a red chambray for $70:

    http://www.luckybrand.com/Military-S...efault,pd.html

    Anyone know how it compares to the J. Crew version? (which is now not even listing small, damnit! should have gotten it when it was)

    Several years ago (before I cared enough about fit), I got two shirts from Lucky in size XS. They seem vanity sized, since their XS is bigger than any size small shirt that I own. The shirts are probably somewhere between S and M in J Crew sizing. They could have improved their cuts in the last few years, but I don't expect it.

    By the way, I was watching Karate Kid 2 and noticed Ralph Macchio wearing what looked like a red chambray shirt.

    I wish they'd start shipping to the UK. I need those Quoddy boots.

    No, the Expedition is larger.

    You can just buy them directly. They say they will ship internationally. They even have stores in the UK that carry them. http://www.quoddystore.com/catalog/

    Tried the red chambray with my 501 STFs (still dark blue). The look is great.

    Does anyone know of any Utility Jacket alternatives? I'm thinking about picking it up in Shadow, but I'm on a super-budget. I'll probably pick it up anyway, because there isn't a thing about it I don't like, and it's relatively inexpensive at the moment.

    (Looking for a slim-fitting, utility-type jacket of medium weight.)


    Picked up the H&M utility jacket in olive. $49 i think. They also had a faded navy like the JCrew shadow color. I like the fact it has a tab collar. Feel it fits that military look better.

    But I've worn it almost daily the past week. Perfect for weight for California spring. Typical H&M where the first few times wearing it I'm finding all sorts of loose threads and whatnot. Nevertheless, worth fifty bucks for sure but the JCrew version is far more substantial, better constructed, better linings and pockets, obviously. So if you can get the JCrew for the online price and willing to spend $100, I'd say it's totally worth it.

    I want to pair the Red Chambray with some white denim.
