J-Crew has a great selection of updated classics and boasts an impressive jean selection in my opinion if you're not one to tote around a two-hundred dollar "7" label on your butt. However, I am always a little weirded out by the fitting of most of the Crew's clothing. Some of the shirts especially fall very loose and are more boxy then I would like. Not exactly the most attractive fit in my opinion. The shoes are great though, no doubt about that! I was longing over some suede ballet flats for all of last winter's seasonal line but never had the wallet to dish out 115 dollars for a pair of shoes. The pricing is just in line with other University Village stores-- high-end and ridiculous at some points. If you can afford it and it fits you well, then go for it-- the quality of fabrics are great, especially the interior lining of jackets. They always have a small sale selection but it always seems to feature the seasonal line "duds". Nothing too exciting to be found. But hey-- do some searching, our tastes our different, of course.
