Buy This (But Not Full Price Like I Did): J Crew Downtown Field Jacket.

One of the very best fall purchases I made in 2011 was my J Crew Downtown Field Jacket:

I have worn it a ton for the past two years and look forward to wearing it an obnoxious amount again this fall. I actually paid full price for it (I know) but you shouldn't do that! Please don't do that. It is in stock right now in the mossy brown/green (and in navy) and J Crew is offering  25% off with code SHOPFALL. (Also, 6.0% back on eBates! That's my referral link! I can't stop with the exclamation marks!)

I really can't say enough good things about this jacket. It's casual but the shiny brass snaps keep it looking sharp and it's the perfect in-between layer for fall. Just go for it and thank me later.


  1. How does it run? I'm between a medium and large...can't decide...

    1. It fits true-to-size. Get the medium if you're going to wear it just over a shirt, large if you want to layer it over a sweater.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I just placed my order. Been meaning to get one. BTW, SHOPFALL is 25% off instead of 20% :)


  3. A bazillion eons ago in college, I had an earlier version of that. I wore it forever. I've seen it in the stores and love everything about it.

  4. Just bought my navy version via eBay. Lurve it!
