    Can anyone explain to me why J Crew's Khaki looks green under certain lights?

    They're made with concentrated evil.

    I tried on the oilcloth jacket in the store last night...I am 6'1" and 190 lbs, athletic build and the small was a bit too tight in the shoulder especially with multiple layers...However, I thought the medium was a tad billowy around the midsection but it would probably be good with layering in the cold weather. Just wanted to provide another point of view on sizing since I am a bit bigger then the other people that posted. I think alot of J crew stuff is just personal preference on how you like your clothes to fit.

    That's crazy, you're 6'1" and trying on a small?

    I am 6'2", 200 and the oilcloth large fits me great. It has some extra room in it for a sweater but overall I love it. A jacket isn't supposed to fit you like a tailored suit.

    Thanks for the additional inputs. I will probably give it a try and purchase it, and return it if it doesn't fit me well.

    FWIW, I'm 6'2", 170ish, and a J. Crew small fits me ok, if not a little baggy around the waist. Their stuff is usually pretty generously cut.

    6'2" 195 and a medium from here can be a good fit but in some cuts its not long enough...and all my heights from my waist down. You guys must have crazy long legs and tiny torsos

    I am 6'1" and 185lbs and I wear a small in their button downs, 38's in their suits and small/medium in their outerwear.

    I was browsing through the Oct. 2009 catalog and I hope JC brings back of those shirt patterns and colors.

    Wow, i'm 6'6" and the lowest my weight has ever been was just under 190. Maybe I have more muscle mass then you, but a tailored fit Large-Tall from J.Crew fit me nicely enough. I can't imagine trying to squeeze into a small.

    Yeah, this makes sense. I'm 6'1, and hover around 140-145 lbs, and a J. Crew small has been (historically - someone mentioned they slimmed them down this season?) very big on me. An X-Small fits better, but is too short in the arms and trunk.

    i'm like 6-1 and 175, the medium button down from jcrew is too short in the arms and tight in the shoulders. i can't imagine how someone 6-2 180+ can even fit in anything smaller than a medium.
