        Won this JCrew Ludlow fit blazer for cheap on Ebay. Supposedly it's only been worn a few times and no alterations have been made yet.

          @bjmcgeever - Nice haul! I'm especially fond of the Malverns. I almost picked up a pair during the 2 for $250 sale recently. Really like both of those pants from BR, great pattern & texture.
          @TheMimbo - Big fan of the Veblens...bad boys are built like tanks! I also really like that color, should look great with jeans. Unfortunately, I purchased mine a while back in the size I THOUGHT I wore back then and they ended up being too big. I might look to get another pair on the cheap soon.
          @Vicious49 - Good looking jacket...nice detailing. I'm a fan of the Ludlow fit after trying on a couple of jackets in store a few weeks ago. A 42R fits me almost perfectly, but could use the waist brought in slightly.

            Two white jeans from J. Crew: the Tompkins jean and the vintage slim "wheat" jean (although it still looks very white to me).

            Found them at the J. Crew clearance store, tags say SU12. Around $25 each after the 20 percent off the regular clearance store price. These both fit much better than the Levis 501 and 514 white jeans I have--and they'll be replacing those.

              30% Off JCrew Factory today. Just ordered the Navy Thompson (finally) for $224 w/ tax. Not the cheapest its ever been, but I realize now how useful a solid navy suit would be (my only suit is great, but its got stripes on it). They say not to expect the pants until July. So until then it's boxers + suit jacket for me. I guess that's one way to beat the Texas heat.

              Another recent purchase are Levi 508s in a light grey. Needed a pair of jeans in this color (though they may just be thick twill cotton, not sure yet) and they do the job well.

                @Los- Was that the actual color name? I've really been wanting to go with a gray jean in the 505 but am nervous about the different grays and the streaking that seems to occur with the gray color... any thoughts or comments? Obviously you like them but anything that can help a brother out on one gray over the other or was that even an issue for you? Thanks!

                  @ajk170: Neutral Grey (http://www.jcpenney.com/dotcom/jeans...mComboVal=null) I used the JCP $10 off $25+ purchase code. I don't think there will be any streaking with these. I plan to wear them with anything from sneakers to brown shoes like my Kenilworth + a dark shirt (maybe the Calibrate Gingham) and a blue cotton blazer for a nice casual look.

                    Just picked up these 2 shirts. The one on the left is BR and the right is JCrew factory. Both cost me about $26-$28.

About that JCrew jacket though, the site says the color is 'navy' but it looks more like a grey to me. That threw me off a bit.
                      Have received the suit and can confirm that the cloth is a navy-and-white weave that appears a light bluish grey from a normal distance.

                        I picked this up quite some time ago. Have just been lazy recently and haven't posted a dang thing



                        This is the JCF Thompson in Cotton Khaki post-tailoring. Nothing was done to the sides of the jacket, as they were perfect. The pants had to be tapered slightly and hemmed. I think It'll be a great summer suit.

                        Picked this up today:



                        It is a brown glen plaid Suit jacket from JCP. It was on clearance for $48, and the matching pants for $25.

                        The fabric is very nice, 100% wool, with an almost felt-like feel. Certainly a fall/winter suit.

                        Do you guys think the length is okay? It's a 38L, when I usually purchase 38R. It seems to fit me perfect, length wise, other than the sleeves needing to be shortened .5 - 1".

                        Also had to get these shoes while I was at JCP as well.



                        After coupon, they were $10 and change each. Not bad for sperry clones.

                          JCrew 30 percent off today: picked up the fall/winter navy button-down collar shirt with the button pocket (sort of like an OCBD only softer material and in a slim fit, plus a different kind of pocket) for about 20 bucks. I love JCrew shirts, especially when I can grab them in these sales.

                            I splurged a bit recently. I got a couple shirts, a crewneck, and a blazer at Topman, two pairs of Cheap Monday jeans, and a pair of commuter 511 Levi's.

                              Things were 40 bucks on eBay. Look barely worn. Just won some florsheim berkleys as well:

                              Also great condition for $30 bucks. I've been getting lucky on ebay. Lol

                                There's a GAP store here in town that was recently switched over to a GAP Factory Outlet. Somehow I managed not to figure that out until this week. I checked it out and I've decided I like the outlet a lot better than the regular store. I picked up 4 shirts (including 3 OCBDs, which I'd been wanting for spring/summer casual use) and a lightly insulated cotton/poly baseball-style jacket for about $100 total.

                                One weird thing - apparently I am an extra small at GAP, at least in their "classic fit." The OCBDs I got are all "classic fit," size XS, and fit perfectly.

                                American sizing never ceases to amaze me. At 5'9" and not super skinny (140-150 lbs depending on how lazy I've been with diet/exercise), I don't think most people who saw me on the street would describe me as an "extra small" guy. But whatever - I'm glad to have found some casual summer shirts that fit well for cheap.
