Seems like J Crew has really slimmed some of the cuts this season which is great. Kopped the club shorts in white today, also tried on the new hook and bar chinos and the new broken-in chinos in that reddish color which actually ended up being more purply/berry-looking which I didn't like it at all. The broken-ins were alright I guess, not too into the whole pre-distressed thing and they were a little thick for my Floridian tastes...the hook and bar were great though, very light weight and just about the same cut, perhaps a little slimmer...both were on the slim side for J Crew which made me really happy. Handling the new s/s flannels was also great, very soft and thin. I tried on that woven hat (Twilby or something...?)...I was expecting to like it a lot, but I also hadn't seen a fit pic of it, so I wanted it to be much smaller than it actually was, even in the size small...I have a pretty small figure so I just felt awkward with it, a guy with a larger body type would probably pull it off better though. The chambray driving cap was also much bigger and more Parisian than I had expected it to be, also a bit disappointing. On the whole, an unexpectedly positive visit to J Crew.
