J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs!}

This is the weekly "J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs}" post, to help each other share our reviews.

So if you have recently purchased, or stopped by a J.Crew store to try on an item (or two) from J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Also, this request is not just limited to clothes. Please feel free to discuss bags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc.

In particular, if you could mention a few of the noteworthy details like fit, size, fabric, and the like— that would be fantastic! Thanks in advance! :)

  1. I am looking for a review of the factory leather jacket (the moto style). Has anyone ordered it? I am mainly interested in knowing about the quality of the leather and if the hardware is really as it looks on the website (aka not shiny silver). TIA!

  2. I visited J.Crew over the weekend and tried on a few things. Here are my reviews.

  3. OT - For any JCAs that wear an XSmall or Small at Madewell: the All Weather Outbound Jacket is back in stock here in size XSmall for $29.99 plus free shipping. This is a phenomenal deal on this jacket. I own one in size Medium, which is much too big, but I chose that size to layer. However I could have gone with the small and still be able to layer underneath it. I went ahead and purchased the XSmall because I can wear the regular and camo outbound jackets in XSmall without layers, so I think it will fit and work for the weather here the next month or so and then again in the spring. You can see the jacket on me here. For reference, I usually wear a size XSmall or Small at Madewell.

    1. Melissa, thank you so much. I had ordered the regular Outbound jacket in one of the last sales and did get a great deal ($68) and needed an XS. But just this morning, thought I needed another jacket that could handle wetter weather and what a great price, so placed an order just now. So when it comes, I will make a decision whether or not to keep the regular Outbound jacket.

    2. Wow! What a phenomenal deal! I had eyed the outbound jacket but couldn't justify spending much since I already have a similar one from J Crew. At that price I can't NOT buy it! Thanks so much for the heads up!

  4. Fabulous deal! I have this jacket and wore it today. Great jacket! If it was a different color, I'd definitely order another one. I wear XS in the downtown field jacket and purchased this one in size XS also.

    1. shopalot - I would get one in a different color if they were to make it, too. Grey, Navy, Tan, or Black would be great. Possibly even a nice true red.

  5. Thumbs up on the stadium-cloth colorlock coat.. It was featured in a Style Guide pic or two and looks much better irl.
