J Crew’s contrast knit blazer (11386, $198) was marked down to $129.99 online & is currently sold out. I’m still seeing it in-store and it’s still marked $129.99 in-store as of yesterday.
front & collar lapels – 51% cotton, 49% wool
sleeves, welt pockets & back body – 58% wool, 42% cotton
lining – 100% poly
Size 4 vs Size 2 – I’ve lost some inches, but I wouldn’t pull a 2 at this point. My vps swears I’m smaller than I am & that’s the size seh pulled for me. I tried on the size 4 in August and forgot I had the pics. The size 2 pic was taken in Oct. I could get it on, but couldn’t get it anywhere near closed.
I would wear this open, not buttoned. Size 4 would be best.
Linen merci tee (HO13, 08815, $49.50) – Size S – It also comes in a dark charcoal type color. This is 100% linen and thin, like the . Such an odd thing to roll out for holiday. I guess you’re literally supposed to wear it on holiday?
The size S fit fine, so tts, imo. These tend to grow a little bit while you wear them. The color is natural (NAT). My jeans are the Loft modern skinny 27 1/2″ inseam. They’re sold out, but the modern skinny jeans are identical. I took wear 8P in them. LOVE! If you don’t want that taper from the knee down, try the modern straight jeans. They’re currently on promo, along w/cords, for $35. As of today, 10/18, INSIDER gets 20% off and it works on the jeans! So a net $28. Good thru 10/19.
I had a couple things scanned at the register and they weren’t on a 2nd cut. The only 2nd cut I saw marked on a ticket was the wool racing-stripe track pant (review), $99.99 online vs $69.99 in-store. Holiday begins arriving as of Monday and should be full out as of Thursday, 10/24. I’m thinking they might cut more things next week and keep the addtl % going. There’s still a lot of merch to move.
