    Yikes, yeah, size down then.

    I've noticed pretty erratic sizing with J Crew sweaters, anywhere from a medium to an XL fits me.

    I wear suede year round. I will admit the color gets the darker the colder it gets (i.e. I am more likely to wear sand colored in summer, snuff in fall, chocolate in winter, etc) but I think it's a versatile enough color you shouldn't fret.

    I think it's the way the armholes are placed and it may be due to my chest or something but their sweaters just don't fit me. It's a shame because it's nice wool and I got them for $45 a piece. C'est la vie. I'll just stick with BB sweaters which fit me a lot better.

    Suede is great in fall and winter, just be sure not to wear them in the snow.

    If you really don't have a stomach, definitely size down at least. Personally, I'd return it. Never been happy with any of J. Crew's sweaters. They're "in good company" ones may be better, don't know, but their own always feel cheap to me.

    I think it's a structural issue so I'm just going to return them and continue my quest for clothing that fits! I have a BB sweater that fits perfectly but they don't make a lambswool sweater in staple colors.

    I don't think the shipping is free, but you can get tester-sized decants of hundreds of different fragrances from The Perfumed Court.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Shipping is $5 or $6 at Perfumed Court which is too much for a $3 tester bottle.

    Looking for a loafer similar to this:

    In a shade of brown, doesn't have to be suede.

    Any suggestions?

    I just purchased a 3 button navy blue pinstriped Donald Trump suit and I need to have the pants hemmed. The trousers have no pleats, and I was wondering what will look better, cuff or no cuff? Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    For a flat front, I go with no cuff, the exception being if it a very lightweight material. In which case, a cuff is simply more functional, since it will help weigh down the legs, and create a wrinkle free look.
