    J. Crew posted their Spring 2011 lookbook here: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/springlookbook.jsp A few images - 1. Fireman's Jacket makes a return. In navy. [​IMG] 2. [​IMG] 3. [​IMG] 4. Looks similar to the Field Mechanic's jacket. For the spring. I hope it doesn't have that damn back "game" zippered pocket. [​IMG] 5. [​IMG] 6. Kinda digging the white oxfords. [​IMG] 7. J. Crew continues to sell the rolled-up pants look. [​IMG] 8. [​IMG] 9. More toggle coats. [​IMG] 10. [​IMG] 11. Some sleeve issues... [​IMG] 12. [​IMG] 13. [​IMG] 14. [​IMG] 15. [​IMG] 16. [​IMG] 17.

    Does anyone think that these look pretty terrible? Maybe the individual pieces are actually ok (I like a couple of the nautical themed things) but whoever styled that shoot is pretty blind.

    Agreed. I think the second and third outfits work. Everything else is a crapshoot.

    while individual pieces look solid, I have several complaints - I don't think wearing fine cordovan shoes without socks would be so practical. Also the ties worn so casually seem way over styled, and would identify a person as a d-bag in real life.

    What is going on with the guy's suit sleeves in the 4th picture (in the lookbook)?

    ^^ Guy looks like a drunken lawyer. The "crinkled" jeans turn me off. I do like a few of the cardigans.

    I really like [​IMG]
    and also this grey one. I guess they are light weight blazers, but at first glance they both almost looked like a chore coat or something a little more workwear than hyanis port. Still very cool

    I'll be interested to see what new/interesting stuff they add to their 'Jcrew in good company' venture this summer.

    Sleeves look awful.

    Not feeling many of these looks. Pretty poor in comparison to F/W10. They need to chill with all of the nautical shit.

    [​IMG] A layer and a jacket with...shorts and no socks. [​IMG] Also, 9, 10, and 15 are plain awful.

    The jackets in 1 and 2. The rest of it sucks and whoever thought up these outfits needs to be set on fire.

    Like the jacket in the first one, the rest looks pretty bad.

    I can't believe this is serious, tbh, whoever styled this is fucking stupid, as others have said.

    Just a note about look 4. The jacket is called the Piece-dyed Brushfield jacket.

    Overall, the new collection looks pretty good ... just not in the lookbook. No one in the real world would actually pair those items like that... I still miss 05-07 J. Crew more haha.

    Most of the styling is gimmicky, but of course the individual pieces are good.

    I called J Crew The suede laceups are all Alden and will be available in May in navy, white and camel. I think they said $445. I was planning on buying versions of these anyway. The thing I like about the white J. Crew is that it is on a leather sole instead of that red brick sole nonsense people tend to like. I will buy.

    Most of the dark wingtips in the collection are Alden cordovan. Not sure it makes sense to wear those sockless.

    I like the Navy sweater over the St. James shirt. The navy sweater will apparently be available on Thursday online for $88 in navy and white. I already bought their navy nautical cotton sweater, I may pick this one up too.

    For some reason im really digging the sweater. The shorts are tacky but what can you expect.
