J.Crew Fireman’s Jacket Now Online

New up on jcrew.com this morning. It’s currently only available in black, but I wonder if more colors will be coming later? (I remember seeing an image of a blue version last year)

Update: The destroyed vintage sweatshirt is online now as well. This is a pretty fun piece that I was able to check out in store recently; two things that do not show well in their pictures are some of the light stenciling and patchwork on the sleeves. I would have picked this up if the fit in the body was longer.


Lobster Claw Belts

Inspired by this post, I came across this gem below at the J.Crew store on Michigan Ave. in Chicago over the weekend.

The style number is 94532 and its price was a reasonable $58. Made in the USA is imprinted on the leather belt, but I’m not sure if that also includes the metal hardware. It’s awesome anyway.

J.Crew New Arrivals for March

J.Crew has just updated its website with some new goods including the long awaited red chambray utility shirt, a cotton shawl collar Aran style knit, the return of the waxed peacoat, and the black Mulholland Master jacket from Mister Freedom (below).

The March catalog is available online as well, and it looks like J.Crew and Monocle are going to be close buddies for the next month or two (what will be next? J.Crew x Ace Hotel?).


J.Crew Fall/Winter 2010 Presentation

Pictures from the GQ/CFDA party in New York are already showing up. Here are a couple of the presentation from Frank Muytjens for J.Crew’s Fall Winter 2010 collection, thanks to That Is Major (she also has pictures of the other presentations too). GQ put up this shot on their twitter feed as well.


Update: GQ.com now has pictures available of each of the looks.

Madras and Paisley

Now up on jcrew.com. (Probably not a good idea to wear them together)


Alden Longwings for J.Crew

I just received these today. They are indeed on the Barrie last (so go down half a size) and they’re a couple shades darker than the stock photo on J.Crew’s website. J.Crew also describes them as waxy, but the leather is more soft than oily.

I also hear that a suede version might be in the works? Hmm…

Frank Muytjens in Free & Easy

Not paying much attention to this month’s issue of Free & Easy, StartWithTypewriters had to point out to me that there was a cool section in it on Frank Muytjens, VP of menswear design at J.Crew. The eight page spread shows off some of his favorite pieces from his wardrobe and home, and besides the obvious J.Crew stuff there were some surprising things listed.

J.Crew Spring Deliveries for February

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.

Military Webbing Belts

Spotted in this month’s J.Crew catalog – military webbing belts with slide buckles. I’m guessing that they’ll be selling them this season, along with the Mister Freedom belts that are on their site (and are currently sold out of).

If you’re looking for something to wear besides the usual leather or ribbon belts this spring, these would be a good alternative. Instead of spending $65 though, you can get nearly identical belts in a variety of colors from military surplus stores for much less.

The more expensive antiqued Mister Freedom webbing belts.

gr8gear.com by the way, is the web store for the famous Federal Army & Navy Surplus store in downtown Seattle and is where I purchased the navy colored belt above.

Review of the Superior Labor Canvas Tote

This last week I received the new canvas tote that J.Crew is selling from Superior Labor and I was able to take a few shots of it this morning after my errands at the Pike Place Market. The heavy duty canvas it’s made from is the same type used for 2way Engineer Tote, and on this they’ve also added an extra layer of it on the bottom of the bag. The cotton webbing handles are very sturdy, and are reinforced with extra stitching and rivets (which are also used to reinforce the seams along the sides). So far I’m very impressed with it, and feel that it’s a much better bag than the special Mister Freedom tote that J.Crew had previously.
