|Banana Republic Sale Trench|
I always appreciated the review section on their website and on the Brooks Brother's website. Even though I have access to many B&M stores, I always find the fit comparisons to be very useful. (Sometimes it is nice to see that I was not the only one who could not zipper a skirt in my usual size!)

I was DELIGHTED to see that Banana Republic has a new feature- a "Find it from a local store" window. That is such a considerate time saving device. And- the item that I was looking for was on sale and had an additional 30% off, so it was not a feature reserved just for full price items. Absolutely wonderful. I checked the site, and the GAP now has the same feature but, Old Navy does not. It does say BETA on the form, so it may just be a trial. I give it very high marks!

J Crew- Why is there such a shroud of secrecy surrounding your inventory? User friendly websites will enhance your business. You have some great things to offer. Now show us what you have. From the comfort of our homes.
As it happens, the coat is not available anywhere particularly close. If I were so motivated, I am certain I could call and put it on hold and drive a little out of my way to look at the size. I am not going to do that, but I am so happy about the website addition, I can promise that I will visit their site more often. And, isn't that what internet shopping(or window shopping!) is all about?
( I wear my trench more in the Fall than in the Spring, and mine is on its way out...)
Have you seen the new BR site?
What do you think? I'd love to hear!
