    Tried the red chambray with my 501 STFs (still dark blue). The look is great.

    do they offer free shipping for these watch straps (2 for $30) on the red phone?

    My impression was that shipping is always free when you order from the red phone.

    I want to pair the Red Chambray with some white denim.

    That would look great too.

    Went to try on the nice ludlow suit in charcoal sharkskin and it was sweet. Very nice feel to it. But, kind of hard to stomach a $600 purchase from jcrew. I suppose i can sign up for the jcrew card and get 20%. Any chance the Ludlows go on sale later this spring?

    I wish they'd start shipping to the UK. I need those Quoddy boots.
    Try a store located in the UK that sells Quoddy, like Oi Polloi: http://www.oipolloi.com/subcat/Shoes/3.html

    my nailhead, in a medium, measures about 18.5 across the shoulders and 21.5-22 across chest. i think it's because of the weight but it's the best fitting jcrew shirt i own. i put darts in almost all of my other jcrew shirts and this one still lays closest to my body. it's definaltely more fitted than the chambrays. but then again, imo, chambrays are supposed to fit slightly relaxed.

    go get it! arguably one of the best shirts that jcrew has offered in some time.

    I think it IS because of the dense fabric weight that the shirt looks & fits better. I reported in February in the Gitman Brothers Vintage thread about my experience with Gitman's "Double Weight Blue Oxford," and their "Extra Heavy Dark Blue Oxford" -- and the fact that those two beefy, sturdy works of art are far and away my favorite shirts. Why? Because the density & character of the fabrics make them look fantastic. I know Crew has been pushing the lightweightedness of many of its shirts as a good thing (which I'm sure will be fine when it's hotter than blazes come July-August), but this heavier Nailhead shirt sounds like one to try.

    Robert,

    I'm saying I've seen some in person before that weren't that small. I posted some pics of these, the standard government issue ones.

    not sure what on or off-seam pocket means. is there an advantage of one over the other?
    The opening of an on-seam pocket follows the seam of the pant -- take a look at these two photos (light pant - on-seam; dark pant - off-seam) and you'll see the difference:

    The front rise is about 10". I was hesitant to order a pair online, but I tried them on yesterday at the local J. Crew and loved the fit. Just wish they would come in the same colors as the sun faded stanton shorts (vintage turquoise and rustic orange were must buys for me)

    +1. Specifically, I was hoping someone who owns them could give an estimate on the front rise. Cue Robert posting 4 times about why J. Crew > RRL.

    Sorry for the double post, rise is in reference to the urban slim fit chinos. Still figuring out the board.

    Just curious--how can you tell from the pictures how big they were? And where are we getting the information that the nam watches were smaller than kid's sized watches?


    Personal experience. I have about 10 vintage watches. All my pre 80s watches Timex, Hamilton,... are significantly smaller than the Camper.

    So I ended up snagging the red chambray and the blush madras a little over a week ago or so. I dig the cotton/linen fabric on the chambray as it gives some nice texture. Fits slim in the body, but baggy in the sleeves as typical of the Crew. I picked up the madras from member Staver (thank again, man) and I'm liking the fit on this for summer style as well, a bit more relaxed I believe than the chambray. Here are some fit pics I took. Check my profile for my stats if you're interested.

    Seems like you might want to size down to XS in the madras. In the top pic, the shoulders seams are falling off your shoulders.
