I agree they're overpriced at full retail. But then just about everything seems like it is these days. That is, I remember a time I could get a great shirt for under 50 bucks and it was three times the quality of a J. Crew shirt. So, I don't know. I'd never buy anything from J. Crew at full retail.
At the same time, if you can wear J. Crew with a bit of irony, that would be cool. Like, yah, I know I'm wearing a cheap J. Crew shirt, and I KNOW I'm wearing a cheap J. Crew shirt.
