J. Crew Black Watch Ludlow Sportcoat – $299.99 (reg. $425)
Damn. With a capital D. Even the self proclaimed minimalists (hi there) would be hard not to go Pavlovian over this sportcoat. Here’s what it has working against it:
- It’s wool. Proclaimed First Class wool from a 200 year old Scottish mill, but still. Summer’s a comin’.
- The on sale price is more than an Indochino suit with a Groupon.
- Not a lot of guys walking around in dark Tartan plaid this time of year. Like wool, out of season.
There’s a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t even consider buying this. Especially if $300 on one single sport coat is an outrageous price for your budget. But for the rest?
Just look at it. Talk about a jacket that does the talking for you. Chinos, jeans, whatever. The saying “Stand out quietly” has been uttered and written more than a few times here. This walks up to that “quiet” line, takes one big step over it, and doesn’t look back.
Not two steps. Not three steps. Not a leap. Just one.
Most sizes available. Free shipping (on any order) with the code FREESHIP. Code expires 3/18. So if not $300, at what price would you buy it at? Say if one of those extra 30% off sales came along and dropped it to $210?
