J. Crew Factory Reviews: Field Jacket & Anchor Sweater

Though I didn't buy anything at the brick and mortar store last week (reviews here), I did order a couple of items online when they sent me a promo code (can never resist a sale upon a sale!).

Everett Field Jacket, XXS, Black, $62.50 (here)
(unzipped, zipped, and belted - I think I prefer it zipped and unbelted)
Factory's version of the popular Downtown Field Jacket features a similar look with an added belt.  Online, it looks like the jacket only comes in black - which looks like a dark gray in real life, - but I thought I spied some navy blue and olive ones at the store in limited sizes last week.  Currently on sale for $62.50 (Downtown Field Jacket is $148), this is a great option at a lower price point.  The fit of the retail versus factory version is the same.  XXS fits well in the shoulders and chest with a straight cut through the torso.  The sleeves are a little on the long side for me, but I prefer this to being too short.
Verdict: Keep, love the fit and price

Intarsia Charley Sweater in Anchor, Sm, $29.50, (here)
I was a tad hesitant on ordering a size up in this sweater, but was so enamored by the nautical theme and sale price, I decided to get it anyway.  It's a little slouchier in the torso and the sleeves seem a little longer, but I think it fits decently enough.  My favorite part of Charley sweaters are their comfort level - they're always soft, nicely stretchy, and never itchy!
Verdict: Keep and have already worn :)

Check out even more Factory review's over at Gigi's :)  

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  1. The field jacket looks great on you! Wish it came in olive green online. Does Factory ever carry XXS in the store? (that aren't returns?)

    1. Hi Jen! I have seen XXS in stores, but usually only a limited selection of items. It's worth a shot! When I visited my store for the jacket, their olive green was wiped out of small sizes so I'm not sure if they had XXS for this particular jacket.

  2. Love both the jacket and the sweater on you! Can't believe the jacket is only $62.50! I wish I lived closer to the Great Mall...I'm sure all the good stuff will be gone by next weekend :(

    1. Thank you! I ordered both items online, but am also lucky to live about 15 minutes away from JCF. Maybe try online ordering?

    1. It's a pretty lightweight jacket good for fall or spring weather composed of a single layer of fabric without any padding / insulation. Hope that helps!

    2. Thanks, it did! I ordered a size larger because I'm unfamiliar with JCrew sizing and am exchanging it for a smaller size. But I was impressed with the weight of the piece and am really happy I bought it! Your review helped.

    3. Christina! Did you see the jacket is currently on sale online for only $42 and has free shipping?
