Hey y'all. question about J.Crew's older blazers. I recently bought the "long boyfriend blazer" ( http://www.jcrew.com/womens_feature/NewArrivals/jacketsblazers/PRDOVR~19197/19197.jsp )in black on eBay, item #19197. I believe it originally sold in Fall 2009. The jacket is partially lined - sleeves, shoulder and upper 1/3 of the blazer. However there is a large slit in between the lining and the sleeves at the shoulder on BOTH sides. You can't see this slit unless you lift up part of the lining. And the slit is pretty symmetrical on both sides. My friend said this is intentional, that it makes it easier to move your arms around in the blazer if the lining isn't fully attached to the shoulder. however the stitching is so shoddy. There's fraying loose ends. I can't tell if this slit is intentional, or if this is a somehow damaged jacket where the lining was torn by someone who wore it last. The item was sold as NWT from a seller with great ratings. SInce the jacket is so old, its not like I can just walk into a store and see if other blazers have it. I own 4 other J.crew blazers - tipped schoolboys from 2013, wool flannel schoolboys from 2013 and Lady day jacket from 2012 and none of them have this slit in the shoulder. They are all also fully lined. Can anyone shed some light on this? I'll try to post pictures later if anyone doesn't get what I'm talking about.
