    Need a bit of help with the sizing guys. 6ft, 155 lbs, athletic/swimmer build. 40 inch chest, 28 inch waist, circumference wise.

    I'm looking to get the Bayswater peacoat after some serious debates between sterlingwear/schott/jcrew.

    So...medium or large? Also is this warm enough for Toronto winters?

    I know how you feel, hate when they don't have XS. Although they do have a slim fit line, I wish they had more items that were slim fit like the demin shirt, chinos, etc.

    I agree, they're chinos are still not slim enough for me. That denim shirt would have been really nice in a slim. I'd like to see the Wallace and Barnes collection in store too.

    I can't say for sure what size you should get, but I bought a S size of this coat last winter and I'm 5'-10" and 150 pounds. However, due to your athletic build, a M may be more appropriate. I recommend going to a store and trying on a S and M of their coats to try and gauge what you may be as this is currently an online only item.

    Also, pay the extra $20 for thinsulate. It's warm enough for New York winters. I think you'll be ok.

    I like the looks of that shirt too, which in the print J. Crew catalogue I received in the mail has a different price point than the other indigo shirts available. (i.e. it's priced @ $138 or something as opposed to the $98 of the denim shirts available) So it will be coming out soon, hopefully?

    Yes I noticed this too. Lambswool Cable Cardigan went from $98 to $118, for example.

    I was actually able to pre-order it from J-Crew. Its a Wallace and Barnes Denim Work Shirt and goes for $98. I really like the color, but it is very thick. Ive never had a denim work shirt before so I wasnt expecting that. I got it in extra small and the fit is decent but since its so thick I dont think it looks very good on me. I would soak it but it would be a shame to fade this color. If I got it taken in by a tailor it may get too hot. Im still going to keep it though and hope my opinion changes. Its probably just way too hot right now to be wearing a thick denim shirt

    You could order a TOJ peacoat. They have many sizes and fit athletic builds...did I mention it is also better in every way?

    The Jcrew in Yorkdale mall of Toronto is for females only. Makes me rage just thinking about it.

    Thanks for the Thinsulate tip. Definitely will select it. I'm torn between a medium and a large right now, I'll email Jack to be sure.

    Are the Ludlow blazers worth the 388? Super 130s Loro Piana. Anyone know if they're at least half canvassed?
