    I wonder what the kickbacks for those mentions were?

    You do realize that they were trying to present different price points and styles, right?

    At JCrew's price point, one can do much better

    What would you suggest that beats it for trim fit and price point?

    J. Crew sells separates, not suits. Tell me again why they rightfully should be on the list? Oh yeah, I forgot - in case some high school/EMO dudes happen to pick up a copy. J. Crew is a joke when it comes to business dress.

    Listen I'm no fan of J.Crew but its hard to argue that they aren't a relatively affordable business suiting option for a young guy right out of college. I think that most of the guys here know that the same money could be spent better in other places but I'd rather see more guys wearing j.crew suiting than the standard 3 sizes too large men's warehouse alternative.

    What the fuck do you think a suit is? A jacket + pants.

    So what if they're sold separately?

    At the price and fit that a NY mag reader on the younger side will appreciate, I don't see J.Crew as a bad option. I've heard BB mentioned as a better bang for your buck, but it doesn't come in cheaper.

    Doesn't matter, just needs to happen more often.

    +1. I tried on their suits at the men's store and was very impressed with the fit, and their fabric was surprising in appearance and feel as well. On sale I would def pull the trigger on one of the worsted wool ludlows.

    Do you think the everyday NY Mag reader knows that? Probably not.

    +1, amen.

    A few hundred young guys who will post on here in the next month that they need a suit for a wedding could do a lot worse. Separates allow for minimizing tailoring costs, or in the case of most guys, to help them get the best fit when they have never used a tailor. J Crew offers a practical, stylish option.

    uniqlo blows j crew out of the water for affordable suiting. so does H&M and topman.

    I like some of Jcrews stuff - on sale.

    I scoop up some graphic tees, cords, and other casual stuff when it's dirt cheap. I don't think I've ever bought any full price item from them. Wish I could say the same for da wifey.

    Separates are not "a suit." Instead, you buy a suit and then you get it tailored. How many decent mens clothing shops even carry separates?

    J. Crew is pathetic.
