A run-around staple

J. Crew Downtown jacket

 I (and my daughter and many of my friends) own and love this jacket. It is a great and less expensive version of the Barbour.  I have both colors and it fits true to size even with a light sweater worn underneath.

Today only it is on sale.

  • Do you know the brand / store that sells the beautiful down filled coats. They have the rolled collar and bell shape . They show synthetic and down, and sell boots and other coats as well. Located in New York, think that it is a staple there.

  • I have this jacket in the greenish color which would not have been my choice but the man at JCrew told me to pick that color…it’s outstanding….the jacket is wonderful…lightweight and yet works well with a sweater and a scarf and the greenish color goes with everything. I am so happy that I make the reflexive move to pick black like everyone else in NYC. Love, love, love this jacket.
