    I'm with you, I bought the BR blue chambray for $34 after coupons. So, I guess I can justify $98 for the JCrew one. I'd rather pay full price for that (which probably won't go on sale) than full price for a secret wash shirt that will probably go on sale.
    How do you like the fit and quality of the BR ver? I'm just curious for someone else's opinion. EDIT: Wow, you only paid $34? Great job. Mine was discounted, but not to that point. [​IMG]

    A lot of folks said this about the blue chambray as well and I dont think that bad boy ever went on sale. Still stuck on $98 after at least a year.

    Maybe they'll make a red outlet chambray, use non-selvage and knock the price in half like they did with the blue one?

    I think the fit is nice. Better than the J Crew one. I also like that it has flap pockets, to make it a little different from the others. The only thing I might change is the buttons; it would have been nice to have something like MOP instead of plastic white. ... and it's not selvedge... Mine was not $34, either.

    I have the blue chambray, and I really like it. went to the store during the weekend, and my gf said she likes the red chambray, damn it's another $98.

    For anyone who has tried on or owns the Red Chambray how do the arms run? I'm hoping a little on the long side...

    Well I will prob still buy it, worth the money or not. [​IMG]

    That's what I thought about the blue chambray when I bought it last year. Since it has turned out to be one of my favorite shirts and has held up well, it was well worth the price.

    I'm not the best judge of fit on shirts, as I am stockier than the rest of you all. But I got a large and it fit trim, but not as slim as most people like them here.

    How I got it for $34 is a little aggressive, I guess. I bought it at full price and they gave me a coupon for 40% off every Wednesday in February. So I took it back to the store I bought it from and grabbed a replacement on a Wednesday.

    I got the watch from campingsurvival. It is very snazzy with a nato strap I got from ebay.

    Also, is it just me, or are jcrew dress shirts slimmer than their others? I have a dress shirt (well now it has just turned into a casual shirt after wear/washing) in S and it (well seems like it) has a slimmer fit than my S secret wash ones, which are on the I'm-swimming side.

    My straps arrived today from David (this seller: http://natostrap.blogspot.com/2008/1...raps-in-8.html)

    They are much better and cost less than the JCrew. I recommend everyone buy your straps from him.


    Might be something that's just me, but I like the JCrew ones because they're 10 5/8" long as opposed to the foot long ones that most places sell. This is because I have skinny wrists.

    Regarding the thirs shirt in the pic, I am pretty sure that it is red, white and blue. The shirt def has black buttons on it but when pairing the shirt under both a black and navy sweater the color matches the navy.

    Anybody else seen this shirt in person that can comment?


    I know of at least 3 that aren't listed online at the moment.

    [​IMG]
    white button, regular pocket. has buttons like regular JCrew dress shirt.

    [​IMG]
    white buttons and camp pocket. different type of buttons though... like the ones used on some of the lightweight utility shirts.

    [​IMG]
    black buttons and camp pocket. same buttons as above.
    if this is the one you're referring to, I've got it and it's definitely red-black-white.

    [pics from Staver's FS threads]

    Btw, there's also a red-white-black plaid shirt in the lightweight line that might be in-store but not online yet either. Has white dress shirt buttons and button down collar if I recall. Cheaper option than the madras, which was $72.50 ($3 more than the other madras... why???). The lightweight was the standard $59.50.

    I thinking about returning the Cotton Surplus sweater. I like the way it looks but I'm not sure if I have the guts to wear it out. It calls too much attention and it might be one of those items you look back on and think "what was I thinking?" Any opinons?

    Good overall look, but I'd get those jeans taken in quite a bit from the knee down.
