J Crew's In Good Company is their multibrand concept. Uniqlo, Muji and J.Crew are completely different beasts. The first is essentially The GAP, transported from it's hedday to 2013, Muji is a place to get underwear and socks at a the train station if you forgot yours at home, and J. Crew is positioned as a lifestyle brand, which is why, I suspect, you dislike it. In like, 1999, I think that you would have just been bored at a J. Crew, same as I get bored at Uniqlo or the GAP. But Andy Spade and co. made it hip-lite, and I bet that you hate that. Personally, I never buy J. Crew, because I have the same gut reaction as do you. But I do like some of the brands that they'd like to be associated with - particularly Globetrotter, though fiberboard luggage has got to be the most useless POS to actually use for travel.
