    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.

    Hmm. Personal taste, I guess. I really like early/mid 1960s-type narrow lapels on jackets and shirts, and I'd rather go with a narrow tie. For me that kind of narrow has more of a cool Americana vibe.

    Yeah, personal taste. I still vote against the Ludlow.

    Doesn't bother me, and I ain't young. I see it as an homage to 60s style, which I've liked ever since I saw my Dad's sportcoats (purchased c. 1962).

    It's just fashion. Lapels will get big again soon enough, as the 70s wave overtakes us (viz. shawl collars, which I really dislike).


    The lapels on the Ludlow are much narrower than what you saw in the 60s.
    You would need a 1.5"-2" tie to wear this jacket.

    Robert- The Ludlow is a joke. Lapels were never this narrow.
    The Ludlow is not even slim. I have BR jackets that are slimmer than the Ludlow.

    Here is a vintage Timex military watch I found recently that I thought you guys might like. I am planning on selling it because I have too many watches like it.

    I did, too, until I saw the epaulets. I will probably spring for the JC version of the gray chambray.

    Was watching this tonight and noticed that Phil from Modern Family looks like he is wearing the J Crew gray chambray at 13:42. It looks good on him, though I'm not sure I'm going to spend that much again on the gray one since I already have the blue one.

    Nice catch! I noticed the dad on Cougartown was wearing the flannels back around Christmas.

    I went to the local J. Crew today and there was some cool stuff that was not on the website. I tried it on but just could not bite at retail + 15% off. It's all going to sell out, probably. Oh well.

    Is it just me or does J. Crew sort of fit a little loose? I cant wear a medium and all the larges I have feel like tents. I need to get them darted. But otherwise, I love J. Crew.

    Nice. Where'd you find that? And how much are you selling it for?

    I guess I have to see it in real life, then. It looks OK to me in the photos.

    Robert is not one prone to boasting, but he has returned from the clearance store and he would enjoy telling you about his most excellent score.

    Would anybody mind?

    For 60 bucks plus sales tax...

    That is a really nice find. Maybe your best yet. What do you think of the fit? And how does it compare to the Millerain or other jackets you like?

    The fit is absolutely spot on. Slim, short but not too short. It's a much nicer fit than the millerain field jacket, which I find a bit on the bulky side.

    Details are nice and subtle. I can see it being a good rain weather jacket, and I can see using this a lot for travel, especially plane travel, because there are just enough pockets, and because it would be easy to layer under.

    Three way tie between this, the j. crew peacoat, and the fatigue jacket from last fall.
