J.crew is the kind of store that I wish that I did not shop at, and yet I do. The clothing line seems perfect for the Washington DC conservative bunch with the argyle sweaters and monochrome suits. The clothes are well made, priced high, and never offend at the office. The styles are classic: the peacoat that I bought 5 winters ago is for sale every winter with slight variations in cut and color. The same boots are for sale. The styles are stale, but the colors are spectacular. If you are looking for something unique and frilly, look elsewhere.
