J. Crew has been one of my favorite clothing retailers until recently. Now l rarely find something there that l want to buy. I see l'm not alone.

 

Their problems are explained and illustrated in this interesting article:

I own this style style of cardi in the gray/white stripe -- J Crew and it's the only open front cardi that doesn't have too much fabric down the front.

"We" used to sit and make fun of the models for wearing wierd combinations of things that did not go together. We would say "Look at her! She doesn't care!"

I'm not a huge fan of JCrew except for one thing, I LOVE their pencil skirts!

In particular, their No. 2 pencil skirts are perfection.  I have them in various colors in wool for the winter as well as the cotton blend for summer. I have found nothing else from them that I care for.
