Most likely not, it is unfortunately (dont know how common is it other places) known that J.Crew uses pins to make their clothes appear more fitted. /edit, i even think that the picture above is from Jcrew +1. Most J. Crew pieces do not fit anywhere near as trim as their photos imply. The actual pieces tend to be far baggier. I used to wonder if their marketers/stylists had the gall to fraudulently represent their product by using special tailored pieces in their photo shoots. Then about 3 years ago J. Crew answered my question by accidentally placing this picture on their web site.... http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/461/jcrownedpd0.jpg Pretty much every single brand does this. Not just pins either but actually taking apart the shirt to make it fit. I've seen arms cut off and held together with safety pins because the arms weren't long enough for the model. Its outrageous how much each piece is changed.
