Okay, if you live by the irvine spectrum I recommend picking up the effing awesome khaki colored shawl HBT jacket at the levis store. It's on sale for 64 bones (coulda been 74 but i had red wine at Veggie Grill so i can't remember) from over a hundred. I tried on the small and it fit me like a Medium. I ended up picking up a pair of tan 201 workwear pants for 21.00.

I have that shawl collar jacket! It was 60 something down from $125. It's killer!

I managed to pick up this Lee 101 rider shirt form a local thrift store for the princely sum of £6 ($9) it looks and feels unworn, although in the pics it has come striaght off my body so looks a little crumpled (excuse the dip can impression in the pocket old habits die hard). I also picked up a new unworn Levis shirt for the same price.

Here are some quick and dirty pics of the Levi's shawl collar jacket:

Two front lower pockets...

that wrap around the back:

The receipt calls this a "shawl collar blazer" and it's $64.90 down from $128.

I think this jacket looks great but the fit was off on me. The pockets are set towards the side seams. I could not button it and comfortably keep my hands in the pockets. My arms were angled too far back.
I really wanted this jacket too..

Guys,

I tried on that shawl collar jacket at the Levis store in Towson, MD. I feel the same about the fit. Wanted the thing really bad- I think with some nice wear and a stain or two it would be the perfect companion to a denim Chore Coat.

Okay, I'm about to blow a gasket over these. Apparently J.C. Penney's only employs imbeciles, because I can't even get a person on the phone who has even heard of "Big Mac." :rage: I have called every J.C. Penney's in a 75 mile radius and everyone acts like I'm from another planet for asking about such a thing. One even kept pulling up their online page and telling me they were available online only...Too bad that's their normal line and not what we have discussed here and I kept explaining to her that these were available in stores only. Sorry, but I had to rant. :mad:

JC Penny's new Big Mac workwear line. I doubt these are actual Big Mac repros, but more like recent styles from the Gap.

All have side gussets and are long enough to tuck in. The quality is what you would expect.The railroad stripe shirt is thin but will be good for the warmer weather. With my coupon they came to about $16 each. There are 2 pant styles as well, blue and gold denim carpenters. Nothing special, but still not bad for the price. There are also some Western style shirts in several plaids and light and dark chambray.

Believe me, you're not missing anything. I checked these out recently and found them to be cheaply made and ill fitting. The only way I'd buy them was if I was going to actually wear them to work in and didn't care if they got trashed. My 2 cents...

They say in the article that the guy in the middle's vest and jacket come from the Gap? WTF? I've never seen anything remotely this cool there....anyone else?
