J. Crew Fitting Room

Was able to go to J. Crew store again at the Fairview Mall. There were a few spring items that I want to try on. After I grabbed a few to the change room, I realized they were all striped except one. Yes, I am still obsessed with stripes.

J. Crew Lightweight Boy Shirt in Stripe in size 6 (here)

This is made out of cotton but so soft that feels almost like silk. However, it fits small. I'm usually a size 4 J. Crew and this is a size 6.

Side view

I would recommend to go up a size for this one.

Liberty-collar merino sweater in stripe in S(here)

Here is a close-up look. As much as I like the stripe, I think the floral collar is a bit too much for the wide stripes. I like the fabric though. Not a very thick wool.

Tried on a couple of items from the clearance section:

Reverse-jacquard stripe popover in S (here)

This is a small but it fits tight around my arms. It fits ok on the bodice so not sure if I go up a size, it would be better.

The store has still got both colors(I believe the other one is a navy/brown). It was $37.99 in store. Very good deal.

Pear Sweater in S (here)

This is a light wool sweater but the fabric is so itchy I had to pass. If it is a thicker wool sweater, I can probably layer it with a thin long-sleeved tee underneath to minimize the itchiness on the skin. But since it's a lightweight, don't think I can layer it.

I was going to try on this tippi but only saw it on my way out. Next time.


  1. Thank you for the reviews!
    I ordered the boyshirt in my regular size,so now am scared it doesnt fit:(

    1. I have another one of their boyshirt and I had to size up too. Don't know if it's the cutting and I have broad shoulders.

  2. Forgot to ask,was the size 4 very tight in the striped boyshirt?
    Do you think i could not wear my regular size?

    1. It feels tight even I size up but I have quite broad shoulders. Would recommend going up a size.

  3. Thanks for another excellent post. Where else may anybody get
    that kind of info in such an ideal manner of writing?
    I've a presentation next week, and I'm on the look for such information.

  4. Thanks for the review on that striped boy shirt - I've been eyeballing it!

    1. I love stripes and blue and white is my favorite stripe combination :)

  5. Can't have too many stripes! Love the lightweight one.
