    Anyone have experience with Bonobos casual shirts? They are having an extra 30% the ones on sale. Thinking about giving one a shot.

    I have a pair in navy I use for work. Reasonable quality, reasonable fit. I like my JCF Urban Slims better. The ON's are not as slim, but they're nice and soft and fit pretty good. I think they would suit you well for your intended purpose. Work dress code has changed a bit, so I'm going all ON for my work pants, and saving my better chinos for better purposes.

    No experience with those particular pants, but I'd recommend trying them on in-person if you can. Like a lot of cheaper brands, Old Navy's fit and sizing can be wildly inconsistent.

    Can this suit jacket pass as a sport coat? I am looking at the toast glen plaid color. I'm thinking with the patch pockets and the glen plaid it could work. Thoughts?

    Seems reasonable -- it is fully lined, so may be kind of warm even with their 'climate control Cool Wool'. Didn't see what the lining was made from anywhere.

    As an aside, I enjoyed reading the reviews. "This was tight on me". "Shitty construction bc patch pockets are cheap", etc.

    I don't get it... is there some kind of rule that the vast majority has adopted that says you can't wear something with patch pockets and still look sharp? Thanks for the insight @hornsup84

    I think the majority buying from Lands End probably isn't that fashion forward, so patch pockets look "cheap" in that they are cheaper to make and the connotation is that it's thus a cheaper jacket than one with regular pockets. Probably true on all fronts, but they're not appreciating that it makes for a more casual look that some might prefer.

    There was also a guy who said that patch pockets didn't work for doing business that he needed to do... as if it were the jacket's fault for being patched rather than his for not noticing when he was purchasing. Classic.

    Brooks Brothers, hardly cheap, feature patch pockets on many of their blazers.

    While Lands' End is not fashion forward, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. I think of their things as traditional.

    Did you know that J. Crew customer service specialists can give you garment dimensions for an item over chat? It's pretty cool. I wonder why J. Crew doesn't simply provide them online.
