    I've been waiting for this coat to show up on their website,

    and then for the price to drop by about 60%


    Wasn't that pictured at one of those GQ 'must haves this season' /? The funny thing about their choices is that whenever there is something that interests me: in the past it was a Schott toggle coat and a Gap fleece vest - when I ask about it - it is always from last year.

    I bought 2 of the shawl sweaters (grey & brown) and am really loving both of them. Normally most of the things I like at J. Crew aren't fitted enough for my taste but these aren't bad at all, especially if I throw some layers beneath.

    That's the selvage showing in the second pic.

    J crew shirts would be perfect if they didn't have such pussy light fabric and small ass collars

    I still say that last pic might be the best fit you've ever had. Almost want to straight up rip it

    Has anyone gotten their shirts tailor by them? I have broad shoulders so there smalls are just too tight on top but fit pefectly everywhere else, So i gotta buy a Medium but the arm sleeves are just way too big. I don't know a good tailor in OC. Last time I did go to one I basically had a Jcrew Blouse hah. So any experience with Jcrew Tailoring and could you go back to them after you bought something and pay for the tailoring or they just send you somewhere else.

    Does anyone know if JCrew ever restocks popular styles that get sold out? I had my eyes on a blue merino shawl collar sweater with horn buttons at the collar. I think it retailed for about $140. I held off on buying it but eventually decided that I need a new blue sweater this season. Alas, to my disappointment I found that It is sold out online and the only JCrew store in my state is a crappy outlet... If any of y'all know what model sweater I'm talking about, please post the name of the style.

    Call them and tell them exactly the one you're looking for, and they might call around to stores to see if they have it. They've done this for me before, not sure if they will always do it.

    How big is the shawl on the shawl merino? I don't like a pussy shawl collar - I like a gigantic, oversized crest. I got two of their merino sweaters and I love the fit (although it could be slightly slimmer, its still better than anything else you can find for $9.99 on sale).
    I feel the same way. The collar is very big and chunky.
