    You're welcome. I personally like the grey coat in the last slide though, most of the items look very good too. I wonder who designs men's collection. Jenna Lyons takes care of men's too?

    I believe it's both Jenna Lyons and Frank Muytjens.

    They're doing a great job.

    Anyone own the wool/leather Donkey jacket from last year? I picked one up on ebay and I am curious about how it fits compared to the Skiff jacket. They look almost the same only the Donkey has leather panels.

    I really like that first jacket. I dont know if I could pull it off but the pockets are great.

    This entire look is really nice actually. I dont currently own a toggle coat. This looks like a good option.

    These two jackets are also nice.

    I was at JCrew today and saw the Ghillie jacket in person. That thing looks nice for sure. They didnt have a medium out and I didnt have time to ask to see if they had one in the back. I probably wouldn't pay $300 for it anyway but if I come across one on sale later on Im going to consider it.

    Does anyone know where J. Crew sources their fabrics? Specifically their oxford shirts? All I can gather is that it is somewhere in Mauritius.

    I've been looking around for bomber jackets for the spring, and so far, I haven't found anything that I liked.

    I tried the Alpha Industry Burnett jacket, but it didn't fit right - http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=30619498&parentid=M_OUTERWEAR

    I just ordered one from Topman, we'll see how that goes - http://needsupply.com/mens/outerwear/olive-ma-1-bomber-jacket.html

    The one that looks really on point is this one from Wallace & Barnes last year, but it's completely sold out (I tried eBay, but no luck):

    https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/outerwear/wallaceandbarnes/PRDOVR~82853/82853.jsp

    Any other suggestions?

    No, but keep looking. Something will work out.

    I wouldn't trust any heavier jackets from J. Crew i.e. the Duffle, Pea coat, etc. You can find better buys / better fabric / heavier jackets from other companies.

    I've always liked the look of the Saturdays goose bomber jacket. Never pulled the trigger on it though, so I can't speak for the quality.

    I've always been disappointed by J.Crew's socks. In my experience, they do start off huge and then shrink a bunch, but I don't find them very comfortable or very high quality. My favorite no-show socks are from Mocc Sock (http://moccsocks.myshopify.com). I use them all summer.

    I should point out that I am in no way affiliated with them.

    Thanks for this! I love Mocc Socks. Just a fan of this pattern.

    With the shrinkage, are you speaking about their no show socks or their socks in general?

    I meant their socks in general. I had to wash them a couple of times before they shrank down to size - not sure why I didn't return them. They ended up being pretty snug after that and I have small feet (8 in vans, 7 in JP).

    Anyway, I don't know if this is true for their no-show socks, but their regular socks don't have a flat seam and, IMO, they're really uncomfortable.

    Legit question. No reason at all -- just looks cool. Same reason people buy patterned underwear.

    i will be of help.

    i have some of the j.crew no-show socks. like 4 pairs. i have pairs in white and grey, the standard colors they always sell.

    i also have a patterned pair but i don't have those striped ones, i am guessing they are the same.

    yes they do shrink after washing and drying, mine would never fit right until i did that.

    last year they had no-show socks by anonymous ism and damn they are sick. i love 'em. quality is great.
