    So does the Eaton Centre store not have as big a selection as what you would find on the website? I was hoping to try on one of their overcoats, but it seemed like they didn't have too many.

    That sucks, nan. I was really looking forward to getting some Everlane stuff (oxfords, terry, t's) shipped to my door, but I really would hate to hear that it's leaving a sour taste in Everlane's mouths. I hate CDN gov't policies. They really hurt US companies trying to offer their products to us. I'd rather just use Kinek.com and ship to Buffalo.

    Eh? [​IMG]

    Can someone please tell me what the sizing for the Mayfair overcoat is?

    Looking for sizing in MEDIUM:

    - Shoulder width (the most critical!)
    - Length
    - Chest
    - Arm length

    Many many thanks in advance!

    dgnosh,

    You're preaching to the choir here. Thing is when ever the topic of tariffs/duty on consumer goods wether they durable (like cars and bikes) or soft goods (clothing, footwear as well as bed and bath) come up for discussion, some nitwit will chime in, "It's to help pay for social programs, medicare, etc."

    WRONG! The bulk of funds sent to the Reciever General to keep this great enterprise called Canada going comes from the GST, income and to an extent excise (sin) taxes. Duties and tariffs are leftovers from a time when they were the bulk of the Government's revenue prior to WW I. I think at this point it cost almost as much to administer as what's taken in, sure it keeps a few sad sack companies afloat that just quite can't figure out the concept of competing in an open market place making a quality product people actually want afloat for a little while longer.

    The secret is shop smart, as for J.Crew they will figure out a way to make it work. If that means flash sales so be it.

    Still annoyed they can't sell Alden in their Canadian stores, but I think that's more Alden than J. Crew.

    Agree with Rambo on the JCrew sales. Have not seen that much I want lately.

    Clearance store visit at lunch (note: not Factory Outlet but real retail at clearance prices): Picked up season 2009/10 fatique jacket and peacoat. These are replacements in my correct size, Medium, for the coats I picked up a couple of years back in Large, which is now the wrong size for me.

    SO... I'm selling my old coats, the fatigue jacket and the peacoat (both Larges). If you're interested, pm me.

    Anyone with hints on next decent sale? November's coming so I can only assume...

    Also, anyone with experience with Jcrew lambswool sweaters? Worth it for the price? Not itchy like those lower quality lambswools out there right?

    I may be in the minority here, but I vastly dislike their sweaters. I find the fit overly blousy and lengths/collar widths really strange. I had one of their lambswool sweaters - I mean, it seemed nice, based on my inexperienced hand (I have no idea how one would even gauge the relative quality of lambswool), but the fit threw me off.

    Are you sure you're trying your correct size? Don't go by the J. Crew sizing chart. It is biased toward the large, in other words, you might have to size down to get a better fit. If I follow the J. Crew measurements, I'm a large but a large will fit me like a sack. A medium is almost spot on.

    I agree w/ this. In most SF brands I'll be between L - XL, but JCrew Medium is where things fit.

    jcrew chinos and most jeans are vanity sized. my 32 measures almost a 34 in waist.

    it does shrink a little if u put it in the dryer, but it all depends how much bigger is ur chino.

    Yes, they should definitely shrink up after laundering, assuming you tumble dry them.

    +1 on that. just a small amount of shrinkage from the dryer.
