    I thought it was about time for this thread as J Crew is slowly putting up some of their S/S line (cashmere sweatshirt, some of the new jackets) and I'm actually really looking forward to picking some new stuff up.

    A link to part of their lookbook/shots of new stuff: http://acontinuouslean.com/2008/11/1...ing-mens-2009/ (thanks robin)

    Some stuff that I'm loving:

    - grey sweatshirt
    - dark grey unadorned basic trench
    - Sperry chukkas

    Nothing says "spring/summer" in my world like a trench coat.

    its a super lightweight trench coat that's probably waterproofed to some degree

    There are some new cotton/wool sweaters that are in stores right now that seem nice (and not like the cotton/cashmere ones).

    I like the tie bar. Probably give that a try along with a knit tie.

    I also think those Chukkas are the Japanese Sperrys but with new J Crew only colors. I have some in light beige I love, and they look really similiar. Hopefully we actually see some slim shorts this time around.

    [​IMG] This does not look like the "cashmere sweatshirt" they have on their website already. If they release this fleece looking one, I will be all over it.

    Here are my stats: 5'8", 150lbs, 38" chest, 15.5 neck, 33" sleeve, 30" waist. A few people with almost exact same stats have said they are a small at JCrew. This is me in a medium tailored favorite polo (it has gone through the washer and dryer): [​IMG] [​IMG] Don't know if I could go to a small, but if the fit is right does that mean I'm a medium for JCrew? Or do the tailored polos fit differently?

    it will shrink in the wash. you are a general j crew medium. you could probably wear small in the sweaters/outerwear, some of the shirts

    you're probably a medium in almost everything. I'm 5'10, 160lbs, 38 chest and fit a medium in everything with the rare exception of a small every so often (usually outerwear).

    That's after putting in the washer on cold and low heat in the dryer.
