    Looks like I'd have to size down one, since the model's my size in an M, and the shoulders look off in the photo.

    It's FCUK, and I have about zero experience with the brand.

    why do you want that. fcuk is somehow related to the french connection.

    Eh, Gilt credits to burn. Apparently they won't refund you money that you've spent as Gilt credits, they just give you your Gilt credits back.

    I take it that's a no? Seriously, I've never owned anything by French Connection or FCUK.

    french connection is kind of like club monaco sometimes slightly worse or slightly better quality but usually worse (more bland/diluted/confused) design. I had a zip sweater a long time ago that was a size medium and was super slim and fit me when I was a true small. that shirts looks like its supposed to be worn more relaxed though. don't really see the appeal though looks like the kinda thing you could thrift pretty easily. yeah having gilt credits just sitting sucks, I would just wait for something good to pop up unless you really want an ugly hawaiian shirt with wood buttons or whatever.

    The wooden buttons were part of the appeal, actually. I was contemplating it for a wedding Labor Day weekend. Looking at it again, the stitching is kind of awful, and it can't decide whether it's supposed to be a work shirt (chambray fabric, triple-stitching, dual front pockets w/ pen slot in left pocket) or a floral shirt.

    just exercise discretion and you'll be OK. otherwise you'll probably end up looking more XxX than bedazzled...heh

    Hey everyone I'm about to make an order on Jcrew and I need some advice... Should I pick these boots up? Please help with some advice. I like them and think they're interesting I just am not sure how I would rock them or if they look good enough to wear out.

    Do not buy either of these boots, you will regret it.

    Any thoughts on these? I'm having a hard time finding black jeans that I can afford, but I'm not sure about the stitching.
