    is there a difference between the catalog and the website as far as inventory goes? There's a colorway of a Wallace & Barnes sweater I really like (as per the latest catalog I received today), but it's not listed online. Might stop by a store tomorrow and ask, but I was thinking maybe someone here knows the answer

    Eh, I'd say it's safe to go down a half size on the Chippewa boots, depending on how you want them to fit. If you like them tight, yet not uncomfortable, go down a half size. If you like a little room, TTS.

    Online and catalog have the same inventory. Your best bet is to call to see if they can locate it in a store for you. Good luck!

    I'm a newbie and currently don't own a sportcoat. What are you guys thoughts on that one? Do you think it would be more wise to find a navy color sportcoat for versatility?
    If this helps any -- I'm 26 and go out almost nightly in Italy (dinners, nightclubs, upscale cafes/bars, etc.). Thanks for any input!

    I own a pair of the LL Bean Chippewa's that are pretty much identical to the cap-toe boot at J. Crew. I sized down half a size from my sneaker. I wear an 11 Nike, 10.5 Sperry, 11 Desert Boot (I SHOULD be wearing a 10.5 though). Got a 10.5 in the Chippewa. Fits perfect.

    so is it safe to say that chippewa size is equivalent to desert boot size?

    Cannot go wrong with that one, TJ. Very versatile. I have the brown herrinbone in the Donegal wool and it's a favorite.

    Are those Preston Bluchers any good? How would you compare them to other similarly priced shoes like Cole Haan and J&M?

    Also, do they fit TTS?

    TIA.

    Navy would probably be better but it is winter time now. Ideally though if you are wearing a jacket every night, you should have at least 3-4 so you don't wear them out too quickly

    I'm thinking of grabbing a Ludlow blazer but won't have a chance to try one on before the sale ends. Was wondering what size you guys might recommend. I'm 5'10'' 135lb & have about a 38'' chest. I was thinking of trying a 38, but typically take a XS in all J. Crew stuff.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the heads up, maybe I'll give the 38R or 38S a shot with the free returns. Still wondering if a 36 would be a better fit.

    looking at getting the LUDLOW SPORTCOAT IN STRIPE JAPANESE COTTON TWILL.

    Anyone here purchased one or seen one in person.
    How is the cotton quality?
    I ask this because i noticed the following on the jcrew site......

    look just where the armpit begins. Notice what looks like a tear....??
