    deleted premium officer chino from my list, would rather pick up chino from GAP or american eagle.

    The nice thing about the GAP chinos is that they don't stretch like the J.Crew ones. I wear TTS in GAP and I have to size down one in J.Crew.

    anyone know if there is a way to still get these MacAlister boots? They aren't on the website anymore, i'm hoping they release them again sometime.

    good to know. somehow the GAP chino feels better than J Crew regular chino.

    Waiting for those damned cords to get marked down 10-20 bucks at least. Saw some fairly nice looking shawl neck pullovers that might be a decent pick-up on sale. Only 69 but I'd feel better around 49, considering my closet shelves are bulging with sweaters right now.

    Are you talking about the jean-style or the trouser-style? Both were marked down to $49 (or maybe $39, not sure) at my local store (North Ave). Would have tried them on but they didn't have my size. I saw those sweaters as well and look forward to them getting cheaper - I have a grey shawl neck pullover from last season that I like quite a bit. There were a couple of cardigans that I hadn't seen online, including a brown/cream marled wool shawl collar for $98. Wasn't blowing my mind, but I might pick it up on sale.

    Surplus and officer chinos were $39 as well for anyone who's interested.

    Anyone have anything to say on the Youngstown flannel after owning it awhile?

    I'm on the fence on this one; not sure if I'll still be feeling it a few weeks post purchase, plus I haven't seen it in person. Definitely want the spruce green one though.

    I have a J.Crew flannel a coast-to-coast search. It's blue and white and only available in stores at the moment. None of the other flannels tripped my trigger, but this one did.

    Saw that one in store, but it was the last one, in a large and folded up tightly so I didn't really get a feel for it.

    It's pretty baggy.

    Really? Doesn't look like that from the pics. Must be some binder clip magic [​IMG]. Got any slimmer alternatives?

    I wear a J crew 38 ludlow suit. The small utility jacket is too baggy for me. The small would fit someone who wears 40.

    I picked up some navy blue cords this weekend for $39. Probably could have waited a little bit cause I'm sure they'll go down some more. What's the price adjustment policy, does anyone know?

    if you like the utility jacket, just find a size that fits you in the shoulders and dont try to zipper it... thats what worked for me

    it's not skin tight, but I wouldn't call it baggy. Mine fits nicely. There's maybe 1-2 inches extra in the waist that I'd take out if I were really fussy about it, but at the same time, the fit overall is about right.

    & I don't like the advice about buying a size you can't zipper. What's the point of having a jacket then? I find with a slightly heavy sweater, the jacket gets a little snug and zips up tightly.

    I bought the Youngstown and the spruce green. I've worn them several times and have not lost the love. What's not to love about them? They're plaid and manly!

    By the way, the store here is sold out of the Youngstowns and the spruce green pile was low. Also noticed that almost every tartan secret wash was gone.

    Wore my youngstown (blue) this weekend when I went apple picking. Perfect occassion, eh?
    That and my Red Wings made for a nice Saturday excursion on the farm.

    Love the fit and colors on this shirt. Not regretting the purchase at all.

    I do believe that the shirt and boots enabled me to pick nicer, riper, more colorful apples than my feiends who were not wearing the goods.

    The clothes make the man, or the apple-picker, as the case may be. As for me, I'm wearing my fatigue jacket today for the first time. Temps in the 50s and it's all drizzle out there. I feel that my jacket enables me to be better prepared than my friends for any tactical situation that may arise.
