    I just ordered this jacket. It has a ship date of Oct 22 so it'll be perfect for fall and winter. It's the last day to use the 25% off so I went ahead and jumped.

    Nothing at J. Crew is worth the retail price. This is why they have that 15% off for students and teachers. It looks nice though. It's surprisingly affordable for a topcoat, given that the cashmere used may not be top notch.

    If I didn't have a top coat already, I'd consider picking one up if I didn't want to spend much more money on one. It's a staple piece.

    Welp. I jumped on it too and it's showing ready to ship. Yours probably is as well. Well played, J. Crew. Well played. All my waitlisted items are now ready to ship.

    The overcoat; It says wool-cashmere in the description; wonder if it is a 90/10 blend? I think it would be good to cover up a ludlow suit. The model is wearing a jean jacket for some reason.

    There is also vest of the same material. While i'm not all that interested in the vest I would love see pants in this material. This combo would make a great fall suit.

    It would be great, but I doubt we ever see it. There's a similar 3 roll 2 suit for $450 + $228. I just wanted this jacket. I also ordered the Ludlow Chambray shirt, but I think i'll return that. Looked cool initially, but I've cooled on it myself since.

    They also have the gray plaid suit in the same English Wool but the 3 piece version is over $900.

    Has anyone taken their Jcrew 'secret wash' shirts to the dry cleaner and had them starched? I have done that on a number of shirts and want to know whether repeated starching has completely ruined the 'secret wash' feel or whether I can restore it some how.

    Thanks in advance.

    X-Post from the ask a question thread.

    I have a new season (FW '13) ludlow sports coat in flannel and I was curious if anyone has any experience with letting a ludlow jacket out a very small amount. Just a tad tight when I have it buttoned up. The sales associate said it did have some extra fabric, and I could go to a good tailor and spend about ~$75 to have it professionally altered.. He almost sounded a little hesitant with the advice though. I know generally speaking it's easier to take in versus let out, but the 38 would have been much too large in the shoulders. Anyone happen to have any experience? Thanks very much

    Just got the shipping email on this jacket. I'm excited to get it.

    I agree. I wouldn't pay full price for anything at J Crew. I'm glad that at least every once in a while they allow their sales to include some of their nicer (i.e. Ludlow) items. There was a 20% code a few weeks back that even worked on Aldens for a day.

    You should have no problems. It's just a regular suit. You can have them let out or taken in, it doesn't really matter (unless it's extreme).

    This is good to know. I was about to order some sunglasses, but might see if I can get my girlfriend to order them with the student discount. Had assumed this would be a no-go since the disclaimer says 3rd party merchandise is excluded.

    Got this jacket today. It's heavier than I thought but it'll be great in the late fall and winter.

    ^ Didn't pull the trigger on that jacket, but will definitely get the topcoat in the same colorway.
