Hi all! I stopped by the store the other night to make a return and visit my favorite (friend and) SA and didn’t intend to try anything on. That lasted about five minutes as I wandered around the store and decided I had to at least try on a few of the re-released “vintage” J.Crew items among one or two other items that caught my eye. I wasn’t dying to get my hands on a rollneck sweater or a rugby shirt, but I am not going to lie, I’m still thinking about that rugby shirt. So, here’s a quick post with a few try-ons from the latest “mini” rollout at J.Crew, visiting several dates from years past (but come on…how about some 2006/2007 blazer re-releases…please??)
First up, the 1984 Rugby Shirt in Stripe.
I wore my share of rugby shirts in the early 1990’s. I’m wearing a size small and it still had a little room – if I wanted to go true 90’s style I’d size up to a medium. I was surprised at how much I liked this. It comes in three color ways, two of which are almost sold out. The navy and white is still in stock but the pink/navy and olive/champagne are almost gone. I didn’t buy it because even though I do like it, it’s more casual than I tend to go on the weekends and I’m not sure I would reach for it enough. But I can see why it’s popular. My store only had the white/navy but it seems like the pink/navy combination is pretty popular. If you’re looking to revisit an old classic, this is a good way to do it. Out of all of the re-released items, this one was my favorite.
