The J.Crew menswear 3.0 look book is in. Is it any cop? You decide.
First impressions from Brendon Babenzien’s J.Crew vision are… it looks promising. Not ground breaking but it aligns with the Drake’s, Aimé Leon Dore, Ralph-lite customer and will likely filter to the Uniqlo tribe looking to spend a little more. Price points look OK and there’s a welcome focus on quality and provenance.
My picks from an initial scan: the pocket tee, the chino, the cable sweater and the jeans look like solid basics. The brushed wool crewneck is beautiful. Colourways, silhouettes and finishes look good to the naked eye. The look book is nice enough but no major surprises; most fashion lifestyle brands shoot in this wholesome-with-a-quirk vein these days. Upshot: I’d like to see it all in situ in a store.
Some pieces seem to be available already with more to drop on 16th August. You can peruse the look book and collection here*.
