Rated 2 out of 5 by AnnieofNorthernVA What a Bummer
I have J Crew pencil skirts in every color and pattern, and wanted to add this one to my winter collection. It has taken years of writing to this retailer to get the designers to taper the waistband on the pencil skirt so they actually fit and looked like true pencil skirts. J Crew had the perfect Pencil skirt for maybe two years, now Here we are again with a Pencil skirt that has a waistband so wide and disproportionate you can put a closed fist inside.
The size 6 fits like a size 8, the size 4 fits but the waistband is way too big and gaping. What's going on with these designers? We are NOT Men, our waistlines are smaller than our hips, how many times must we iterate this before you listen?

Rated 1 out of 5 by shopdiva OKay pencil, not like double serge
I was looking for an addition to the many double serge pencils I have. This one is close but not close enough. It fits true to size. I'm 5'5 149 pounds and wear a size 6. The waist seems bigger then the regular pencil skirts and higher. Higher waist seems to be a J crew trend as of late and it is not flatting on me draws attention to the belly area. The fabric is a little itchy even with the lining. My issue is the color. I was hoping for more of the bluish color to pop like on the model. She has it paired with a blue pinstriped shirt. I was hoping I could pair with my denim shirt. This skirt is more brown and gold with very faint lilac/bluish. And I do mean faint. Might consider altering the waist for the sake of variety in my wardrobe

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valentina Perfect and stylish!
I got this skirt in my usual JCrew size 4, it is shorter than the double serge pencil skirts I have, and maybe a bit more tailored, it is absolutely perfect! Quality, material, execution, just like JCrew of years ago that I love. I plan to wear it with chambray shirts, striped blue and white shirts, navy sweaters, denim jackets, burgundy leather jacket... so many ways! Great addition to a well curated closet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatDenC Fallen for J. Crew's No. 2
I just received this skirt today and must say it is one of my favorite J. Crew purchases to date. The craftsmanship for this price point is excellent - from the corduroy interior waistband to the patterned lining and fabric weight. The attention to hidden and unhidden details is just impressive. I'm looking forward to pairing it with the Lena jeweled tweed pumps and a chic navy lace blouse. I agree with other postings that the pictures seem to show much more bright blue. Also, the waist is not as cinched as it should be; however, the overall quality and detailing more than make up for that.
