J.Crew’s Bandanas

Hidden away in the Crewcuts section on jcrew.com are some great and affordable bandanas. They’re made in India, and are fairly soft in comparison to many of my other handkerchiefs. Only time will tell how the fabric holds up in the long run though. There are also lots of other cool stuff available including Andrew [...]

J.Crew Holiday Arrivals

New arrivals from J.Crew today, in mostly knitwear and smaller gift type stuff. Other highlights are Mackintosh jackets made with fabric from Fox Brothers, a CPO shirt jacket, a black watch sportcoat, and wool throws from Drake’s.

J.Crew Spring/Summer 2011 Preview Roundup

Images from J.Crew’s Spring/Summer 2011 preview hit the web today, and everything looks to be toned down from previous seasons (sort of like minimalistic Free & Easy looks). The standouts for me are the accessories, and I’ll be on the lookout for those new Superior Labor bags next year. The best pictures of the event [...]

J.Crew’s Fair Isle Knit Tie

There are a few new things up on jcrew.com today, including this fair isle knit tie. Apparently made here in the U.S. Other interesting pieces include corduroy shirts and a down parka (maybe a good alternative to one of those Nigel Cabourn parkas, if you don’t want to spend $2k). Update: There are now some [...]

Chamois Cloth Shirts

The chamois cloth shirt has been a longtime favorite among outdoorsmen – made from soft sueded cotton (think flannel), they are ideal for layering in cold weather and are about as warm as wool. Just don’t get them wet. Some newer ones for consideration this season: An LL Bean chamois cloth shirt in the Signature [...]

J.Crew’s New Arrivals for October

J.Crew added a few new interesting things to their site last night: a Crescent Down Works jacket, made in the US New Balance 1400 sneakers, and scarves from Drake’s (hopefully they will carry their ties at some point?). I don’t know what they were thinking with these $350 patchwork chinos of theirs though. They don’t [...]
