    I'm a newbie here. Can anyone comment on the sizing/length of the university coat? I'm 6'0.5'', 175, medium built, are they cut slim? Should I get medium tall or large tall? or regular medium/large?

    I don't shop at jcrew a whole lot, but i really like this jacket and the discount is only available on the site. Thanks so much!

    Does the fatigue jacket also come in black or only green?

    I saw it in Black last week at the Paramus, NJ store. Looked great in that color.

    Wow that is fucking ridiculous IMO. I'm very disappointed, considering sending a lengthy email asking for an explanation.

    Some retailers don't want certain items falling into sales. It's not the first time jcew has done it, and they don't do it only with collabs. Other retailers do it. What's the big deal?


    Ive havent been hit a couple of times with orders from 150-250 from j.crew. I figure its about 50/50 on my orders regardless of the price but I think its generally worth a shot. UPS rapes canadians.

    You don't say. Listen to this: I just finished getting charged (for a RRL shirt off ebay) $48 for a $48value (a 100% customs charge).



    I don't get why they ship to Japan and Canada but not to Europe...

    Canada has no Jcrew and they are physically right there. Japanese are a guaranteed market and will buy anything. Europe is neither close, nor a guaranteed market.

    It's shitty? Pretty simple reasoning, here.

    I've been to 2 Jcrew retail shops and haven't seen this black.. I'd love this jacket in black..

    I guess I'm being edgy and fashion-forward, ha ha!

    Henley OVER a shirt? Really? I don't know, Robert, sounds more like fashion-backward. Pics or I'm not believing this.

    Yeah that sucks.
    After the tax and shipping...I really just end up saving like 8 bucks rofl.

    I bought the Cotton rib sweater-jacket, and a merino cardigan. It's getting a little cool down here.

    I'm just about to pull the trigger on a university coat. Just. The massive tax and shipping sucks; I hate ordering stuff over international boundaries [​IMG]

    I just emailed customer service re: Fatigue jacket in faded black. I haven't seen it in any store or online.

    I also went to the local shop during lunch today and hooked up the red & black buffalo check sherpa lined shirt jacket....really hot!

    I'll see what I can do. It looks best, imo, with the plain (unwaffled) henley (at least that's the only way I've done it). You just put it on like a sweater. Sort of the same effect as a half-zip sweater but with buttons instead. You wear a henley over a tee, don't you? Why not over a collared shirt?

    Have not seen the fatigue in black in the store. There's a field jacket in black, though.

    Because it has a collar.
