    Is J Crew going to be selling Monocle?

    I visited a J. Crew Factory store in my area (didn't realize there was one here). Is there any difference in the clothes there? I bought 2 dress shirts and a pair of brown/honey classic fit chinos there. They all fit great, but I'm wondering if there's a hit to the quality. I bought my girl a nice shirt as well. They had the blue Chambray there for $40 ($50 with $10 off sale) and I'm wondering about the quality compared to the ones found in the regular store.

    How do the cotton blend cardigans fit? I usually wear an extra small in their shirts but recently I bought a cotton crewneck sweater from jcrew and had to get it in a small.
    Just wondering if the cardigan fits a little tight since I had to buy a size larger than usual for the sweater.

    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?
    Too many pockets.
    I regrettably have decided to return it. I like the design and the era of military it inspired from but I have the mock-neck wool cardigan for the F/W and the Utility Jacket for the S/S (along with a couple of zip hoodies) so unfortunately, the Cotton Surplus sweater just odds out.

    yes, there is a noticeable difference in quality.

    30% extra off sale items online right now.

    Grabbed a small in that Millerain jacket, plus a few things to top up the cart to get that sweet, sweet free Canadian shipping.

    I'm about to order a cheap Timex military watch, but one with a black bezel. Will definitely get several colored straps from the crew, and possibly from the other link someone posted as well.

    Where does stuff like this Kuroki denim come from? I've never seen it before online or in store, and then all of a sudden it pops up in the sale section online.

    Wish these had been in my size. They will probably all be sold out by the time anyone reads this.

    Found some Timex military watches online for around $30 shipped. Looks similar to the J.Crew Timex, but a few different details.

    Looking forward to the sunwashed Red Chambray that I just ordered. It said it was in stock, so hopefully it comes soon.

    I also love how you can get custom hemming on the essential khakis. Very nice feature.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    returns from the store most likely.

    the denim seems pretty cool: http://www.denim-kuroki.co.jp/english/kuroki.htm


    I honestly don't see anything special about it. I'm curious what you guys are seeing that I am not. [​IMG]

    For me, just that it is high quality selvedge denim for a good price. I've liked the J Crew selvedge I've bought in the past, and I am assuming this is at least as good.

    I would prefer that it were not distressed; J Crew loves to do that. But I'd take it that way at the right price.

    I have it. It is good, but nothing particularly special. One nice feature is the inside pocket. Note that the sherpa lining makes the arms really narrow inside, so it's hard to layer over other things, because the arms will be too tight.

    Anybody???

    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?

    is it ok to wear a shirt underneath?

    is it true to size?
