J Crew’s check button down blouse (23050) retails for $64. This is the only color/pattern I saw in-store when I bought it. From what I could piece together, it sold out on the 1st go-round and the store quickly got another shipment. I dunno if they had them mailed from another store or what. The inventory management is intriguing — even if I’ve spelled the word incorrectly. And not just at J Crew. I’ve noticed Old Navy (ON) selling out of things, too.
Size 4 – Perfect fit. Sometimes I want to go up to a 6 in the button downs to ensure chest comfortability. Not so in this case.
Have you seen this shirt? I perused the Nov catalog and see button downs from the men’s dept, but not this one. I also don’t see it on the web. Own it? If you see it online or have more info, i.e. name, lemme know.
p.s. There is some confusion about this shirt, as discussed here in the comments. I found the following online. No wonder the SAs are confused.
Men’s Secret Wash button-down shirt (19417) in vintage navy gingham – $65.50 – It runs XS – XXL – This one looks just like the women’s one above.
Point-collar dress shirt in medium gingham (20066) – $69.50 and currently on promo for $55. It’s sold out in XS and runs up to XL. The checks on this are tighter.
