    Nah that's not it, the tag, price and material are all different.

    I'll try to take a photo of it tonight, but capturing the colour is a little challenging.

    Rocket, I don't usually buy stuff at full price, and in this case I got 20% off as a student, so yeah. But I plan on keeping the tags on, to see if it appears online and ever goes on sale.

    But the moment I saw it I loved it, it's really chunky, and the flecks add a lot of visual interest. It's pretty similar to this actually, and as you can see $200 is pretty much the going price:

    I thought Club Monaco was bad quality. Now, at $89 a dress shirt? Seems high.

    If you're paying retail you are doing it wrong.

    The XS hoodie is already sold out, looks like it's a hit. I don't plan on getting one though. I'd like to pick up a nice hoodie at some point, but it's not a priority.

    Description says it's cotton, not wool. The collar is also kinda flimsy-looking.

    I thought donegal was common with wool, which is why I said I would have thought it would be 100% wool (especially at that price point). I checked it out in store the other day and it's like 20% cotton and the rest is polyester and some other synthetic material I can't recall.

    The collar is not too flimsy in my opinion, and my main concern is the material. Is the material a sign that the shirt won't hold up well after some wear and washes?

    Was it acrylic? Either way, I usually prefer my clothing these days to be without nylon and acrylic. If it's something you really want then you should get it, but I'd advise not to get it at full retail.

    I don't think that synthetic material will make it less durable, in fact I think I've read that it adds durability somewhat.

    It may have been acryclic...

    I can get the shirt at a 20% discount, but it's still steep at 100$.

    I'm not so concerned with durability in the sense of whether the shirt will literally fall apart or not. I just worry about buying a 100$ shirt that, when put through the wash a few times, looks like crap because of the synthetic materials. This is an area I know almost nothing about, and don't think I own any shirts that aren't 100% cotton.

    Can anyone comment on how the 5-pocket cords fit, particularly waist-to-thigh ratio?

    Epaulet Rivet Chinos work great for me. Most J. Crew cuts are so vanity sized in the waist that if I size down there enough, the thighs are too tight.

    I walked into the CM in Philly and they removed all of the men's clothing. It's all womens! WTF? The saleslady said that they might be opening a separate men's store in Philly but that won't be for a while.

    Where is the closes men's store? NYC?
