J. Crew Sales Pr0n

Good morning, lumpkins.  I apologize for not posting in so long, but I truly have been sick.  My doctor says I have the flu, and laryngitis and possibly a bacterial infection of some sort.  Even the most devoted pr0nista would be laid flat!  I’m working on a fantastic post about Spring coats, but in the meantime, I thought I’d pop in with a few great sales.

For one thing, J. Crew has some lovely sales on pants – which I rarely show you.  I adore their suiting pants for their fit.  I’m very low waisted, meaning my belly button is down where my hips are; also I have ample tush and legs.

The city fit is a near perfect rise for me (rise = length from crotch to waist), and gives me enough stretch in the leg.  Sadly, the stretch wool doesn’t have belt loops.

If you’re more of a skirt kind of a girl, the pinstripe stretch wool pencil skirt is an excellent value right now for $65.00.  They have sizes 0-16 in Navy; it’s 22″ long, fully lined and sits just below your waist.

A quick word about skirts in particular: if you’re short, and you’re lucky, you can buy a petite size and your skirt will fit you proportinately.

If not, bring your skirt to a tailor. Your blogger doesn’t want to see any of  you with a skirt lower than at the knee.  Any of you!  Not even if you’re Michelle Obama and you’re nearly 6 feet tall – your skirt should hit just at, or just above the knee.

A hem will take your tailor a day or so, and cost you less than $15.00.  Proportion is critical, my pron darlings.

If you’re not quite so curvy as I am, or you’ve got a bit more span between hip and belly button, you’ll need a higher rise.  J. Crew’s Favorite Fit is on sale for you in their Super 120s wool.

I have these and they are super soft for a wool.  The Super 120 is a really nice knit.  These are available in either a navy or a charcoal pinstripe.  Regular sizes go 0-16, Petite 0-12, Tall 0-14.

The matching two and three button jacket is also on sale right now.  $129 is a really good price for a wool suit jacket.  The one thing I’ll mention about the way J. Crew fits is that it tends to be a little small in the back and shoulders.   I take a size 6 jacket, but I’ve got broad shoulders, and defined arms, and it’s just a touch snug.

I can’t vouch for the fit of J. Crew men’s jeans, because I don’t know anyone who wears them, but I’ve worn their women’s jeans and liked them quite a bit.

Among other styles, their relaxed fit jean is 25% off and available in a pretty good range of sizes from what I can see.  Can anyone tell me why men’s jeans cost so little compared to women’s?

Just the other night my friend DP was telling me that he was in the market for some more suits, and it just so happens that J. Crew has a good deal on them right now.

To my right is the 3 button Aldridge suit jacket.  Now they say this is a 3 button that rolls to a two button…I confess I don’t know what that means, but if it looks half as good on you as it does on this gentleman in the picture, who cares?

They have it with the year-round solid classic-fit suit pant.  Note that this is a slimmer, more tailored fit.  I happen to like that cut, you just have to make sure it fits you.

While you’re there, pick up some boxers on sale.  I like the beer, and the Rock Lobster.

Were $18.50, now 2/$28

Hmmm…maybe I need a guest writer to talk about certain men’s fashion.  I’ll talk to my menswear blogger friends and see if we can do a cultural exchange. :)

Underneath my J. Crew suits, I love to wear their slim fit stretch shirts.  Every season they come out with more colors and I just keep buying them.

Right now, the Bright Blue and the Fresh Rhubarb are on sale for $19.99.  A whole host of other colors are on sale for between  $39.99 and $49.50.  I’m going to pick up the Bright Rhubarb and maybe the Fresh Mint or Charcoal; I already have the Deep Persimmon, and a dark purple color.

Note that these are not final sales, and I didn’t find these in the Sale category; you’ll find these just by poking around.  A true pr0nista knows where to look.

With your navy suit, do pick up this leopard print patent leather belt.  Every pr0n diva knows how to show a little personality.
Whether it’s shoes or jewelry, or something else, a little wink here and there in your outfit takes you from catalogue clone to Pr0n Princess (or Prince!).

I leave you with this year-round suiting vest for men.

Why a vest?  Why not?

I’ll be back soon as I can pumpkins, with a full discussion on Spring coats.  And Monday should be another edition of Pr0n Plus.

Until then, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
