    Anyone own any of the cashmere or cashmere/cotton sweaters from J. crew? Was wondering how they hold up.

    The cashmere ones are okay, the cashmere/cotton ones suck.

    Yeah, the cotton/cashmere lose their shape pretty quickly, it's annoying.

    jake davis blog just put up an entry about a white chambray work shirt but i am typically an XS in button downs from jcrew ...

    does this just not come in XS? are these slim enough to buy a small?

    good buy or no?

    I don't think they do the Chambray shirts in XS. I've looked before for the Grey ones in Xs.

    the chambray's also not cut that slim. I'd say it's a little fuller than regular jcrew shirts.

    can someone talk me out of the officer chino?

    I was disappointing with the fit. They are pretty baggy for me, and the rise did seem high. I like to wear pants lower so they just look a little off for me.

    This is the problem with all their pants. I just got some regular fit lightweight chinos and I'm going to debate on keeping them tonight because it will require $40 in alterations to get them how they are supposed to be.

    anyone know anything about the Jaspe jersey shirt, its looks nice and comfy. but they don't tell you if its 100% cotton, or really anything other than that they used a twisted cotton yarn and that its 'unique'.

    I am just trying to determine if there is anything special about it, or if its basically a slightly nicer version of AA's 50-25-25 shirt.

    its probably the same fit as the slim jeans. not super slim, about an 8" leg opening on a 32.
