Anyone have this item? I have a chance to get one in either graphite or navy at a large discount from its original price, and I'd really like to hear some comments. I had recently bought the 8-wale J. Crew Factory sport coat, but I found it to be a bit too shapeless, and I wanted to find a higher-wale coat I could dress up a bit more. Is 18-wale crazy high, as in it will look like velvet or something, or is that a pretty good wale for a sport coat that I'd be wearing mostly with jeans or chinos.

Shit, I meant to put 18-wale in the title. The 8-wale one I returned.
