    I'm not sure if you're going to be able to slap the 15% student onto a sale already.

    When does J Crew typically do their next big sale? I missed out on the black friday sale.

    They've been doing the same thing almost every weekend since.

    That's a "computer error" in their discount codes that seems to pop up every year. They "quickly" fix that to exclude Aldens though.

    Decent pick-up today: the cotton shawl-collar cardigan (the "heather barley" color) for $59 after the 30-percent off final sale. The in-store sale price is $10 less than the online sale price, and they had a range of sizes. This had been on my want list but I thought the $100 asking price was a little much.

    I didn't see anything else of note in the sale section.

    I was inspired by how the store manager was wearing his slim-fit chnos. The problem I've had with wearing the inseam a little shorter now (no break) is that they tend look too flared before hitting the ankle. I noticed that he irons a slight crease (front/back), maybe going up halfway to the knee, that gives them a more weighted and tapered look. Gotta try this.

    My 2013 J. Crew want list (or will accept affordable substitutes of similar quality from other manufacturers):

    Dark navy suit
    Glen plaid suit
    Grey tweed sport coat
    Light summer sport coat
    More dress shirts (like the Ludlow, with subtle stripes and patterns)
    More dress trousers (some grey, some other variety, too, like a glen plaid or blackwatch)
    A tux (!)
    Decent neckties
    A dark brown lightweight v-neck sweater
    A slim winter topcoat
    Maybe a madras shirt or two
    Some decent plain-toe or wing-tip dress shoes
    A couple of decent dress belts


    I don't think that's asking for too much.

    You can, did it 3x already. The reason you can do this is because the 30% off is not a coupon code, it is an automatic markdown on clearance items.

    The kicker is that all clearance is final sale.

    I did today. The on sale stuff was already ~50% off. Then they have the 30% off no return on top. I used my 15% student discount afterwards. Surprisingly, there were items in sizes not XL.

    2 lambswool sweaters and 2 shirts for about $120 taxed. Started early with the Xmas shopping for '13.

    Awesome snag on that turquoise fair isle, wj4. Have been looking for that in a store all season. Possible proxy if they have any M or L left?

    Don't recall. I'll check tomorrow during lunch break. This J. Crew is pretty small and the sales section was only 2 racks.

    The new "resort season" stuff is awful, most of it. I hate this in-between season.

    It's ambitious.

    I forgot to add:

    a pair of Sperry canvsas shoes (like Vans) in navy
    a leather key case
    a small leather credit card holder
