    Stopped by the JCrew men's store to kill some time while the rest of the family was in Gap kids earlier this evening. Walked away with an $80 pair of pants for $15. I also picked up the Penfield Gibson jacket in navy since they applied the 30% off sale to it but I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it. Even at $110, that's still pricey for what is basically a rain jacket.

      Get outta here. That's a great looking dog. Congrats!

        Love those brown AE's and Vicious great find with those pants.

        Recent purchases: 2x wide knit ties from Knottery, Trafalgar braces (Ebay), and dropped $415+tax at Yoox today. HOPING I don't wind up keeping both items I purchased (a pair of Valstarino bombers). One's a S/S, one's F/W and if I could get just one in a tobacco brown or navy suede in my size I'd return both in a heartbeat:
        F/W: Is this too dark? Looks like something I could wear in lieu of a coat, over a dress shirt, on a cool day. 85% wool, 15% cashmere

        S/S:

        This is also nice and cheaper than paying for both of the above, but I don't think I like the color of the cotton ribbing: http://www.yoox.com/us/41459824JX/it...824JX&sizeId=4

        Love this one: http://www.yoox.com/us/41459800BQ/it...800BQ&sizeId=5
        Not sure how nice the leather is, which is why I'm favoring suede and wool: http://www.yoox.com/us/41459798KV/it...798KV&sizeId=4

          Were they the umber brown Bowery slim by chance? I tried on pairs with 32 and 34 waist but neither fit - a 33 may have... But the Ludlow and Bowery Slim don't seem to work well for me, so even for $15 I passed on them.

          Of the ones you linked, I really like the navy suede and brown leather! Of the two images, I very much prefer the darker one. The color and style makes the S/S version look a bit like a jacked up Safari jacket.

          Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

            Yup, guess they had them on clearance at all the stores even though they are showing full price online. I was surprised they had them in a 32/30 since that's a popular size. I decided to give them a try even though they said 'slim' and somehow they fit and don't feel like skinny jeans on me. They had another pair of pants in an off white color but I didn't even get those past my ankles before realizing they werent going to work for me.

              Here's a little better pic (featuring post-drinking pirate beard). Hard to take pictures of a critter that is either moving or asleep.

                  Just bought a navy barbour commander jacket, I like it a lot. I would have preferred olive but the price was right. I've heard people say it fits odd- I'm a 36r and the small commander is a great fit for me. It is trim but I think I can squeeze in a thin to medium sweater without looking silly.

                    How was the sleeve length on your jacket?

                      No issues with sleeve length, hits at the base of my thumb

                        Snagged a three-piece navy Thompson from J Crew Factory for $260 OTD. Pretty sure I'm returning the pants for a slimmer version.

                        Splurged for two slim fit J Crew flannel oxfords at 30% off. Not the best deal, but I've been searching for a quality Buffalo Plaid one. (Have a medium classic fit one, lightly used, for sale if anyone is interested.)

                          got a pair of baldwin denim for 50% off at midnight

                            Ordered a pair of Trickers from STP at about half off. I've been looking for a pair of brown bluchers with a thick leather sole or a dainite type sole. I'm just hoping these fit since the smallest size STP seems to carry for Trickers is UK9. Sometimes you can get lucky and find a UK8.5 which was the case here. I wear UK8 but their sizing info said these run small so order up 1 size.

                              I've got the Schott 654 cafe racer jacket in brown incoming in a couple different sizes. Assuming one of the sizes works, it will probably end up getting repackaged as a Christmas gift to me from my family.

                                It's a great jacket. I hope you get as much use and enjoyment out of it as I have.
