    Saw a small display in Short Hills, NJ. I imagine the stand alone men's stores have a much bigger selection. The flannels were nice and thick, but still $98 for made in China.
    The denim looks interesting (made in USA).

    Oh man, I wouldn't be suprised to see hose flannels to be MIC, but one of them is pretty interesting and I will probabely cop if they go on sale for like $60

    The denim looks good on the site, but I'll drop by Boston's men's shop next week and check it out, but in any event, I might still just go with the RRL, $248, even with my student discount is kinda expensive consider its JC.

    If anyone has any coupons lying around they're not using, I'll gladly take them. Kinda thought they'd have a new discount tonite, but the new one only counts for ladies.

    Has anyone seen one of the Wallace & Barnes Makin Island chino shirts in store? Just wondering if there are some extra details - contrast inside front placket? Gussets at the hip?

    Tried it on in the store the other day. They run pretty big. An XS fit me like a standard jcrew small.

    The quality are nice on the W & B flannels.

    As for size, I tend to teeter between XS / S with J. Crew. I fit into the XS in these shirts.

    those of you who always got the 20% off coupons in the catalogs.....are you still getting them? I used to get them every catalog but the last two have been empty. Just wondering if it's everyone or just me.

    I got the wallace and barnes service belt in the mail today. the buckle is kick ass. the style of the belt is really nice, but for $88 the belt doesn't feel thick enough or sturdy enough. I expected a little more for $88. If this gets down to the $30-40 range maybe I'll bring it back.

    runs TTS in case anyone is interested.

    thanks for the info i was thinking about the quality on those belt cuz they look good to me. But just like u said, $88 is what's holding me back.

    I also asked a online SA about the wallace and barnes' new dark denim, since its made in the USA with a 14oz denim. they told me that the fit was in between the 484 and vintage slim fit, which I like, cuz vintage slim fit is a little loose for my liking but 484 is too tight. But again, priced at $248, I'd go with RRL.

    I was wondering about this as well; I have only ever received a 20% coupon once, and it was a very long time ago. And it was expired by the time it arrived.
