Thank you. I think so too. The vintage stuff I buy often resembles current Crew offerings. I suspect this is in part b/c this is purposeful by the store, ie, they pay attention to what's on the shelves of regular stores. I also suspect this is in part b/c J. Crew bases its offerings on a vintage preppy aesthetic. Or I'm just attracted to things in the store that look J. Crew!

Thanks for the help. Suppose I'll try to hunt one down in the nearby shitty J. Crew and see for myself.

You go out in upstate NY with the peacoat as your outer layer? Damn, Thinsulate will be good to go.

Ugh finally!
I hate coming and readin this thread of the boring nonsense all about Him.

I went to the store today and tried on the Heavyweight slub jersey hooded henley. It was actually kinda lightweight and kinda short.wide and short. but it did look really cool just standing straight.

Also tried on the Regular-fit lightweight chino. And they felt nice but fit exactly how they look in the online photos.Meaning a lot of room in the thigh but everything else looks pretty cool

Came out with nuthin. I want the rustic shrawl collar cardigan.anyone have it think its worth the price??

Without Robert this thread is:
"What size should I get"
"That is expensive"
"That is cheap"
"Sale"
"I like the Red Chambray a lot"
post #4509 of 5101
Yeah! What he said.

Now let's get some real substantive discussion going, eh?

5th Ave NYC store had some kick azz sales last weekend. When you buy shit at full price and the shit sells out b4 it goes on sale, you feel happy.

When shit goes on sale for 70% off, for which you paid full price, it kinda makes you wanna choke yourself with a lousy XS cotton cashmere sweater.

This shirt is quite nice. One of the buttonholes on the collar was too big on mine though.

Has anyone been to the 30 Rock store recently? If so, is the stock as decimated as the Liquor Store/B'wa Men's Shop?

J.Crew Discussion Topics-
1. How did J.Crew become so popular so fast?
2. Why does J.Crew not offer a slim fit shirt?
3. Can J.Crew maintain this hype?
4. Is there a J.Crew style or do they just make stuff they think they can sell?
5. Why can't J.Crew afford a reliable website, that can be easily navigated?
post #4514 of 5101
great topics! I'm especially interested in #4. Maybe because of the perspective of age. That is, I think some of what J. Crew does is recycle things that were popular in bygone eras. I see the tartan shirts, for example, as revisiting the preppy style I saw a lot of in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

They also definitely have fairly "classic" pieces.

Most importantly why don't J. Crew ship internationally?
