I went into urbn this week just to check stuff out. And everything is so stiff and cheaply made. Worst material ever. Waste 50 bucks on a button up or spend 15 more bucks and go to jcrew. People don't have common sense
Some things you should never go cheap on and shoes are one.
Definitely agree with this one. I've had cheap shirts and jeans that are at least wearable, but shoes are a different story. Unless it's something simple like canvas sneakers I tend to splurge.
I also like J.Crew suits because I'm not constantly worried about them getting a nick or pucker here or there. Peace of mind is important. If something worse happens to them it will only ruin my day rather than my week. I also have a larger drop so I can buy separates and save quite a bit on waist and leg alterations. The last one I got needed about 1/4" let out of the sleeves and 1/2" off the cuffs and that was it. I think they'll even do those for free in store if you have a J.Crew card.
My tailor fit polos and half zip merino/cotton sweater came in. I swear that J. Crew clothes fit me PERFECTLY! The polo's fit me better than the Lacoste or Polo RL's that cost 4x as much.
