mfitz82, you are too skinny to be even the definition of mid-20s medium, but you are pretty right, I think. you are their target customer LEC is a younger version of LE. in part it's a gateway brand. young single men feasting on cut-rate LEC will be getting the catalogs for the next twelve years and, one day, buying a shitload of LE for themselves and their kids. or so they are hoping, i'm sure. it must help, in the effort to undercut j.crew's prices, to make fewer sizes of each item. it gets expensive fast when you start making and stocking every imaginable size.
