Monocle and J.Crew might seem like an unlikely pair to team up but over the last 6 months the market leaders have been cooking up some interesting projects.
I know I’ve noticed the increased advertising presence in Monocle’s last couple of issues as J.Crew have been ramping up their menswear and the latest catalog. Now online, you can view the “Men of Monocle” piece that J.Crew have put together. They have photographed the guys behind the magazine in London, styled tastefully in J.Crew’s spring collection and their recent collaborations.
The catalog/magazine is the first real collaboration that’s now in the public eye between Monocle and J.Crew but I wouldn’t be surprised to see another form of collaboration in the future, maybe a shirt, or something like that. We don’t often get to see the Monocle staff in front of the lens so it’s nice to put faces to pens for once. The styling itself is very comfortable and what you might expect from both brands.
