J. Crew Ludlow Herringbone Sportcoat in Italian Linen – $229.60 w/ GOODNEWS
Normally $348 and just hit the sale section at $328 this morning. Extra 30% off drops it to $230.
Yep. Fresh on the heels of the J. Crew Factory cotton suit separates, there’s this beast.
$50 more than what a full cotton suit will cost you at J. Crew Factory, but you’ll be able to feel the difference. That floating chest-piece inside J. Crew’s (non-factory) sportcoats is noticeable when you slip it on. It gives the jacket a solid foundation without making it heavy. And it should just move with you better.
Wool, hit the bench. Linen. You’re in.
A perfect sportcoat to swap into rotation for the warm weather months while your standard navy wool blazer takes a breather. But even with that extra 30% off code GOODNEWS, it’s a splurge. Herringbone pattern makes it perfect to layer with a solid or larger/bold patterned shirt and off-white pants. Double vent. Gonna be hard not to look good in this…
Unless you’re stuck at home because you’re broke after dropping $230 you shouldn’t have spent on it.
All sizes seemingly available at post time, and from what it looks like, it’s not final sale either. That’s a rare combo for a J. Crew sportcoat that’s not out of season, but instead just heading into one where it’ll see its most use.
Toss up time: Would you rather have a full Thompson suit from J. Crew Factory and an extra $50 in your pocket? Or this Linen sportcoat from J. Crew? Meanwhile, their seen everywhere plaque belt also just hit the sale section.
