    Stores don't stock XS. They might have the occasional online return, but the odds of finding a youngstown XS outside the web site is 0.

    looks like it's a Red Phone purchase for me.

    ^ Most J. Crew stores totally suck in terms of selection. Expect to see a small fraction of what's on the website. But sometimes, you'll find things IRL that are not even on the website.

    A lot of things are catalog/online items only. And there a few things that are store only. A clerk tried to explain that it has something to do with there actually being two distinct business operations, which is why you also see different prices online sometimes, but it still didn't make sense to me.

    There's also four "levels" of stores that get more/less items accordingly.

    Saw that today at the factory outlet; supersoft shirt.

    Neat; guess I'm stopping on my way up to Michigan next weekend. Were there any other notable F/W items in factory versions?

    Upon flipping through the latest J Crew catalog that came in the mail, I noticed something really annoying. In every fit picture, one sleeve cuff and/or (usually and) one pant cuff is always turned up. I could understand if it was done randomly, but in every photo?? It's worse than seeing the models pretend to read Steinbeck (which isn't actually that hard to do).

    Explain.
    Store levels 1 and 2 get the good stuff, 3 and 4's get just the basics. Based on sales, store performance, and such.

    Did the wool shawl cable cardigan in wheat all sell out that quickly (in ever single damn size)?

    Maybe there was a manufacturing defect in that color. Seems odd that it would be sold out already.

    Has anyone tried the garment dyed jeans? How do they look in person? How is the fit? Was thinking of picking up a pair since I have so much blue denim in my closet. Are they vantity sized like much of the rest of the pants?

    I've been looking at those jeans in dill color for a while...however I felt the white ones a while back and they seemed a little to thin for me.
