Great Pick

I'm always hesitant to buy something online that is sold as "final sale".  I mean, nothing is final because there's always Ebay, but that's just an extra hassle. I decided to take a chance on this little number:

Woolrich John Rich & Bros.™ buffalo-check shirt-jacket c/o J. Crew

Unfortunately (for you), it's no longer available and even if it was, it wouldn't likely fit as it was sold for 'boys'.  Knowing that I'm a pretty reliable J. Crew boys size 12, I ordered it (originally $128, on sale for $99, extra 30% off for $69 plus free shipping), and it is 100% perfect.  One of those kinds of things I almost wish I had paid full price for.  The fit is ideal, and the weight (a heavy wool shirt/jacket) is great for Southern California winter. 

A similar W's version is still available at a very steep $625:

There's a cute LL Bean version of a buffalo plaid available for $179 on sale:

Or this Banana Republic version on sale for $149:

In any case, looks like you could find yourself some buffalo checks for the end of winter...
