+1, man. That is my exact sentiment regarding J.Crew. Their products are nice enough to fool people into thinking you have designer clothes, that is, if they are foolish enough to believe it. Lol. That, and their styles are pretty dope. Though I go for more of a rugged style, one with many personal idiosyncracies, yet sometimes I like to bust out a suit or a nice cardigan, which is where cheap (enough) J.Crew comes in. yup. i dont care if its 'designer' im not on TLC or Bravo.. im not trying to impress anyone.. im an old fashioned kinda guy who likes to look manly. and jcrew clothes are great quality (my experience is 100% and anytime something was wrong they had excellent customer service), nice materials, actually fit me, and are very reasonable (plus i have the teacher 15% discount). im more of a traditional LL bean type of outdoors/military/scholar kind of guy, and jcrew managed not only to market to me but to actually take all the things i actually like and put them all together. who else would sell country style clothes with city fits and back them up like jcrew.. if i wanted to look like i was dripping in wealth i would hang shiny gold jewelry all over and wear black leather shoes. instead i like jcrew for their humility, masculinity, and quality while combining all the things i like in one spot. dont dis.
