I agree with saying most clothing is overpriced. It's worth what somebody will pay for it. No doubt J. Crew is bumping stock out the door and making a serious amount of dough, people are buying it.

perhaps you older folk are a bit less aware as to what your body types are compared to yesteryear. that or the other mall brands of your choice have conned you into thinking american sizing is some sort of standard. its built that way to accompany fat americans.
Oh, snap!

I purchased three of their sweaters for this season -- a fleece shawl pullover, a merino full zip and a merino half zip, and find all to be rather flim fitting, much moreso than past seasons, and especially through the arms. I am very very happy with them.

For $800 that thing better be made of human skin. A Vanson Horsehide comet runs under $600 Schott horsehide Racer is $612 Both of those jackets look way better than that... thing ^ etc

I don't know what else would possibly ever one-up LK at the SF get-togethers.

Not only is that jacket overpriced but the model looks like he should be modeling rogaine not clothes.

I tried that leather jacket on the other day and it is both extremely thick and warm. The leather felt pretty indestructable and while I would not pay $800 for the thing, it seems much more than reasonable than their $375 rubber raincoat and the $790 Mac collab.

Menswear pricing in general is ridiculous. Click anywhere on Revolve and it's filled with startup labels selling $75 ts and $200+ dress shirts. Considering even at the mall AX and Banana are all selling $300 peacoats I think Jcrew is probably the least guilty of the bunch.

Konnichiwa, tokyo-san, o-genki desu ka? iidesu yo. I said that early on, as even Aero - the King of Leather Jackets - can now be had for less money. I checked this jacket out in a local J Crew, and its not even on the same planet as an Aero, Schott, etc. It is a nice looking mall jacket, not a lifelong heirloom like an Aero.
