I just had a peek at the new J Crew catalog that my wife left laying around and on one extended trip to the bathroom (sorry needed to clarify why I'd be reading their catalog) I leafed through it. Normally I don't pay attention to catalogs. I was amazed at some things in it. First off, I am quite enamoured with J Crew's new (online only mind, not available in stores I've discovered) Vintage cords in slimfit (in a bevy of nice Autumn colors too, I shall have to buy a pair or two). BUT have they lost their minds?! $135 for a pair of Desert boots (not even Clark's) , $175 for a "military style" Timex watch? $175 for Levi 501's? And the biggest crime of all: $325 for a Harrington! Sure they come in four cool colors (khaki, tomato, navy and green) and I'm sure they're heavier than those dodgy ones I bought at 99X in the early 90's but jeebus that's steep! I'd happily buy all four if they were to "fall off a truck". Crikey. I got a brown suede coat for less than that from Banana Republic!
