"Thanks!" to many of you, including Irina, who shared the following email J.Crew sent this morning.
The email features the Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Flannel (Item 48682; $188.00), described as
A style icon: one of our all-time favorites (and best sellers)—the schoolboy blazer—updated for fall in classic wool flannel. Featuring a posh, slightly shrunken fit and finished with authentic haberdashery-inspired design details like a lapel buttonhole, a ticket pocket and crested gold buttons for a touch of legacy luxe. Lapel collar. Long sleeves. Chest welt pocket, welt flap pockets. Functional buttons at cuffs. Fully lined. Hits at hip. Import. Dry clean.I positively love this jacket! And I want one in each delicious shade: Pearl Gray, Decadent Red, & Heather Caramel. And clearly J.Crew was listening about complaints that their previous jackets lack luxe buttons. This jacket comes with beautiful crested gold buttons that are sure to shine all season long. Can't wait for my local J.Crew to start carrying them! :)
What are your thoughts on the Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Flannel? Have you tried on or own it? Does your local brick & mortar store carry this jacket? If so, please share.
