    Went into JCrew to adjust the price on my Alden boots and ended up walking out with two pairs of cotton dress pants (bedford and ludlow) for $52 total.

      looks good Eric F. i'm actually thinking about picking one up myself. how tall are you so that you went with the L? how is the material?

      Not sure if this should be in the "How Does it Fit?" thread or not, but I just wanted to update on my Napoli suit situation. 38L came in today and it's pretty spot on. Thanks for the feedback guys; I'm glad I went with the long. Really happy with the fit out of the box - just need to hem the pants and we'll see if my tailor has any minor suggestions for the jacket.

        I'm 6'1", but I usually get away with 38-40R in Thompson/Ludlow/Banana Republic jackets. The regular was a bit too short in the body and quite a bit off in the arms. The L is actually a bit smaller through the waist that the R was (I forget the measurements, but they're all on the suitsupply website), which is great for me since it would have needed to be taken in a bit.

        As far as material goes, the Super 110's wool is great. It's a wonderful dark navy and soft to the touch with minimal sheen. I don't have much to compare it to in this price range in terms of suiting, but it definitely leaves my JCF Thompson suit in the dust in terms of quality. Even the other "better quality" jackets (Ludlow herringbone, Banana Republic birdseye) that I have pale in comparison just in terms of construction. If you're seriously considering a purchase it certainly doesn't hurt to send out for one to see what you think about it in person - their free shipping/return policy is great.

          I got a pair of the navy Peal & Co chukkas from Gilt last week. I've worn them twice and I'm liking them a lot so far.

            I had some returns to J.Crew and while there picked up the Italian Chino suit jacket in Wheat for under $100 ($96 actually) off the clearance rack (marked $159.99 + promos). I had already picked up the pants a few weeks ago for $50, for a total of just under $150. So now I have another summer suit, just in time for, uh winter... Oh well, I'm sure I'll get plenty of use out of it.

            I know some folks express concern about the narrow lapels on the Ludlow suiting. I also share those concerns (its bound to go out of style in the not too distant future), but I'm less concerned when it comes to a more casual khaki summer suit.

I can't decide if it's the pattern, or the fit, or the fact that I've never worn a popover before. Are the sleeves too long? Note that they probably look a bit weird because they've not been ironed. It was cheap enough ($25) that I'm willing to keep it long enough to give it a chance, but I'd also be OK with returning it. Either way, I'd love some opinions on it.



                You're a lean fellow and I feel that it is a bit too boxy on your physique. Additionally, I don't think the muted colour palette works with your high contrast complexion. My suggestion is to return it.

                            Goddamnit. Why did you show me these? I might be able to get away with wearing those to work.

                              That's what I said yesterday when Joe published the Bonobos travel jeans deal. "Khaki jeans?! *lightbulb*"

                              (They should be here Thursday.)
