    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't think they will be as sturdy as the other ones, but you should be fine.

    thanks man....would you recommend swapping them out for the broken in essentials?...they had those at my local store and they were a little cheaper.

    thanks in advance.

    Hey gang, I'm a Canadian, so I need a some shirt size comparison help.

    I'm a solid GAP small, a solid Club Monaco small, a solid H&M medium, and an Epaulet large. Is it safe to say that I'd be a medium in the J Crew summer button downs?

    I think it's the other way around.


    Is it?

    I'm not certain but that's what customer service told me a few months ago and I've noticed when some of the regular/standard items go on sale, it ends in an even number (either .00 or .50). The officer chinos are on sale right now and the standard british khaki is $55.00 and the other colors end in .99.

    I'm the same. You'd be fine with small in JCrew. Shoulder will be nearly identical with Gap but fuller chest and arms.

    Well I think what you have are fine and will hold up well enough, but it sounds like you may not. I think you should go with your guy and exchange them. I bet you would feel better about the choice in the long run.

    So when an item says "expected to ship 05.10.2010," does that mean they'll charge my card when it's shipped?

    Has anyone attempted having the red chambray taken in yet? I'm seriously considering having this done. Sleeves are seriously baggy.

    Thinking about it too but haven't done it so far. And because the fabric is so light, sleeve so baggy, and my arms shorter - the extra length kinda hangs down, muffin-top style, over the cuff instead of stacking. Getting close to pirate-look territory. Having said all that, SoCal weather has been awesome lately and it's my favorite shirt at the moment with sleeves rolled. For the person earlier asking about the shrinkage from the wash and dry, I noticed it shrank about quarter inch in sleeve length. It feels a tad bit tighter in the chest and body as well. I didn't measure back. Highly unscientific but I certainly can feel some shrinkage occurred, but nothing significant to really change the fit. This is pretty much typical of all my JC shirts. It's usually most apparent in the sleeves as I have all my shirts hanging on the same type of hangers. I have a lightweight and madras shirt that I haven't worn or washed yet and the sleeves of those are about quarter to half inch longer than all the others. Incidentally, the shortest sleeves are one JC shirt I got off ebay that turned out to be from the outlet (damn those ebayers!). The sleeves on those are another half inch shorter than the other washed shirts.

    Thanks for that. Did you hang dry or use a dryer?

    Right, just got back from the tailor after not having much success with wash/dry method.

    My main issues were:

    1. Sleeves too long
    2. Sleeves too baggy
    3. Body too wide

    ...And this is in a small, the same size I wear all my Crew shit in.

    The tailor explained that shortening the sleeves just over an inch would be no problem but that slimming them would be impossible, judging by the double stitching on the inside. As far as the body went, he's adding two darts in the back.

    I gotta say, just having the pins in place made it look 50% better, but I'll be wiser tomorrow when I get it back.

    Why do you guys keep buying J Crew shirts if you have to get the tailored?
    You can get mtm for like $50 and with the same exact fabric J Crew uses for like $70.

    Edit- Though if you get them on sale for $30-$50 the extra $20 for tailoring the sleeves, chest, torso,... might make it worth it.

    Never had a J Crew shirt in small fit me anything but absolutely perfect. Believe me, this is the first time in my life I've ever had a shirt tailored.
