    I was going to buy some J. Crew Officer's Chinos in black but shipping is $12.50. It pissed me off to the point where I just closed the window. Everytime I order from them I can't get over what a joke their shipping is.

    I think I'll actually have use for this thread; I'm always looking at items that may or may not actually work out. First example, a denim blazer...

    Proceed with sarcastic commentary.

    If you order from the little red phone they have inside the store, shipping is free. Didn't know if you knew this or not...

    JD_May, who makes that? That stitching looks Nudie-ish.

    So, what are you going to wear it with? It could be interesting with certain pieces; perhaps Rye's pink jeans?

    It's 7Fam, but I agree it does look like a nudie jacket. My first thought was brown or dark tan chinos. Maybe black jeans? Sadly (I think) I don't own any pink jeans.

    Looks like someone else BIN'd it anyway, so I'm saved from myself.

    I think its strange that I'm drawn to the Gucci tapestry bags for fall. I'm not going to post pics, because I already know the opinions of the peanut gallery.

    They came today bit I am going to send em back. I sized down to a 30 and it's still too big in the waist. Measures 32" and I am a hair below a 32 so after stretching I'd be screwed. The "10 year wash" is okay (I got the black ones) and the slub twill is really nice. Sending these back is a shame. I may keep em, we'll see. They'll be no worse in the waist than my RRL chinos which fit the same and have the same details. I may try and see what a tailor can do cause I love these otherwise. Maybe move buttons 1 inch or something (button fly).

    I'm torn. I don't like the sleeve ribbings, and something else just seems off. If I look at it one detail at a time, it seems nice, but then all in all that picture doesn't look good to me.

    ^^yeah, that sweater is from the Banana Republics "Monogram" collection...I haven't really found anything in that collection that I like. It seems nice for the price points, though I definitely don't like the "varsity theme" that they have been running with for a while. I have almost pulled the trigger on some Monogram items on sale in the past, but there is something very off-putting about them. May be that I really don't like that model. Overall the arm-stripes are more than enough for me to say no to that sweater.
