    I saw those C&J boots when I visited the Soho J Crew store last month and they are gorgeous in person. Did you size tts?

    I did size TTS (I went with 9.5 UK, which is 10.5 US). I thought about sizing down, but the boot was snug in argyle cotton socks. It will be a bit looser with thinner socks, but fine.

    I found the Quoddy blutchers to not be comfortable at all. Do they take some heavy break in time?

    I have the Quoddy maliseet in peanut brown that were extremely confortable out of the box. I don't own any Quoddy suede, but I always had the impression they were very confortable with or without socks

    My failure to find a baller messenger has brought me to this. I feel like I could do a lot worse?

    You could do a lot better. For starters, look at Filson 256 and Saddleback

    Has anyone seen/tried on the marled cotton shawl-collar popover?

    I did see it on an employee at one of my local J. Crew's, it was actually quite nice looking

    Having ordered extensively from both stores (lol), no they are not

    So JC is using a price differential on the same mass-produced, China-made shirts in order to spur sales? Say it ain't so!

    I wonder if JC's loyal mainline customer base will ever catch on to its scheming ways

    Don't buy. I have had mine for about seven months and the thing is practically falling apart. Major POS.

    I was reading the catalog while taking a shit today. The sight of $200 Dickies did wonders to facilitate the progress of my log.

    What kind of abuse have you put it through? I've had one for about 5 months and there's not a stitch out of place.

    I agree, if you can afford a saddleback they will last a lifetime.

    Nothing out of the ordinary, for a messenger bag. Use it everyday, have traveled with it, etc.

    I looked for a messanger at the ~$100 price point for a long time and almost bought this. Ended up with a barbour, which is one of the best purchases I've made. It's indestructible.
