J.Crew has begun to update its website with new items for February, and local stores should be receiving goods in now. In addition to several great looking shirts, ties, and shorts, there are also shoes and boots from Alden, denim from Levi’s, classic Persol sunglasses, and a number of other accessories. The men’s catalog for February is online for viewing too.
Some of the new shirts, including a few with club collars and a new utility shirt made from a heavy oxford fabric. Good stuff.
Sun faded Stanton shorts.
One of the new Levi 501 models made for J.Crew, this one has gone through a salt soak according to the description (sounds like a gimmick). I wonder how they compare to the 501′s that Levi’s sells in their own stores.
A new “Cadet” jacket. I think its design would have been better if the epaulet straps were left off.
A very lightweight chambray scarf. I’ve checked this out in my local store and it’s surprisingly very soft.
Some of the madras ties. The first one is interesting in how the pattern was set horizontally to the ground, and that the tip is squared off. Seems pretty vintage like.
The classic Persol 649 sunglasses (a favorite of Steve McQueen).
A leather postal bag from Belstaff.
Made in USA Weejuns! Not bad at all.
And lastly the special Alden shoes. The indy boots are a bit better made than the regular stock 405 model (nicer leathers are used), and the calfskin longwings are probably on the Barrie last if you’re wondering.
