Sunday Steal: The Wool/Cotton Peak Lapel Ludlow

$315 for a Ludlow suit, but is it a little much?

J. Crew Windowpane Italian Wool-Cotton Suit = $314.98 ($576) w/ FRESHSALE

Windowpane, peak lapels, a ticket pocket, and a wool/cotton spring & summer ready fabric.

Too much going on there?

This would have to be maybe, what… not less than the 5th suit in a guy’s collection? This is a suit that gets purchased after someone knocks out the standard navy, charcoal, a medium grey, maybe a pinstripe, etc… It’s certainly not a foundation type of suit. Yet for all that’s going on with it, it still isn’t completely crazy. Hey, it’s not some in your face Suitsupply number.

NOT final sale. So, that helps.

Lined in bemberg, solid half-canvas construction, and the Ludlow cut that many (but not all) favor. One drawback for the thicker legged among us is that the pants are only available in the slim option. And if you’ve got calf muscles, look out. Their slim pant is real tapered from the knee down, so you might have a hard time getting in these. No word on the % of wool to cotton makeup either, but since this isn’t final sale, it can be returned.

Thoughts? Too out there? Leave it all in the comments…

This is part of the 30% or 50% off select items code FRESHSALE that expires tomorrow. Didn’t see this suit late last week when it launched, so perhaps it’s a new addition to the sale section?
