    Damn I thought I was skinny at 5'9 and 143... Pants can be hemmed for more accurate fit, but looks good

    It may sound a little grimy, but I was able to stretch out the discount at jcrew recently and combine the 30% with the 15% student discount. They are not supposed to do it, but if you find a less informed worker you can push for it. Using a personal shopper, or the chat feature can also help

    Mind you that you can get the 30% just by applying for the J.Crew card, and if you get turned down you can repeat the process.

    I picked up the Ludlow Italian worsted wool suit in charcoal, size 34/s, and 30/30 for the pants. (came out to be about 380, with free overnight shipping)

    as far as fit. The 34/s runs a little larger then suitsupply's 34, and fits like some more modern cuts of 36's

    Fits very well off the rack, with just sleeves needing some work (slight trim, and shortened)

    From what I can tell about the quality, it is comparable with similar priced Hugo Boss suits, and possibly a little better then the similar C.M suits.

    I have strange measurements so unless I m going with an MTM or etc, finding a suit in my size that can be bought in separates saves me a lot of money.

    Just for general knowledge, their XS jackets are for the most part a little longer then their 36s (which is already longer then most modern 36s)

    Re: stacking discount. It's not grimey at all. The SAs I know do it for me all the time. They can even expedite shipping for free and have done it. I've bought the Lee jeans before and those are excluded from the 30% sale. The SA couldn't override it on the CPU so he called for the prices to be adjusted manually. If you build rapport with a couple of SAs and buy stuff from them, they will treat you well.

    I own quite a few j crew pieces over the years and still like them for some basics but it really bothers me that damn near everything is now made in china yet the full retail prices keep climbing. I will only buy now when its super closeout prices. When I choose to drop real money it's not gonna be for an all chinese made mall brand.

    Which size shirt would fit a 5'8, 123 lb. guy like me better: XS regular or S slim?

    I've tried XS slim before and it was definitely too restrictive. I've also tried a S regular, but it's too big.


    I own two of their shirts in XS regular, and I'd say that the fits are pretty spot-on (albeit a tiny bit restrictive; I can get pics if needed), but I'm wondering whether their S slim might make for a better fit.

    If you're asking whether XS regular or S slim are more baggier, then S slim is more baggier and its sleeve length is longer.

    From what I remember, XS slim and XS regular are more snug than S slim.

    From your profile, XS regular should definitely not be a problem. What's your chest,neck and sleeve length (center back)?

    Oh dang, thanks for the quick reply. I've been eye-ing their pale barn shirt for a while:

    http://www.jcrew.com/browse/single_...534374302023743&nav_type=PRMNAV&bmUID=j_pugiN


    And now that they're on sale (along with the 40% off code), I was thinking that I might as well. But I didn't know whether or not I should venture out from the XS regular that I know fits well.

    So yeah, thanks again for affirming the size.



    As for my measurements, I actually don't know them haha. I'm only casually into fashion.

    Anyone have experience with their MacAlister Brickman boots? Do they run true? Do they fit like Clarks DB?

    Thanks!

    Anyone own or check out the broken in tees? I'm wondering how they fit and feel.

    They fit true to J.Crew sizing.
