J.Crew Pocket Squares



—01. Indigo denim fabric.
—02. Sakura pattern.


That sakura indigo pattern seems to be making its way around New York in the past couple of seasons, but I don't mind, its great. I've been hunting for it myself, but haven't been able to find the supplier since seeing The Hillside, FSC and Wayne Pate use it. J.Crew have found the swatch card however and made some neat little pocket squares. Both indigo dyed fabrics look great and would be a nice accent to pretty much any cotton garment I'd wear.

Edit: Hillside also have made pocket squares using this fabric, this season, which are now available at Context.

awesome if you like things made in china by quasi-slaves.

jcrew's manufacturing is wack, regardless of how nice any of their designs may be...

Do you realize how many labels would be under your "wack" category?
Also, have you done your research.. or are you just "re-bloging?" Lets hear it!

yes, there are certainly a gazillion brands that fall under my wack manufacturing category... but a high number of brands mentioned in blogs like this aren't.

it IS my fault I chose rally against one of the 5% of J Crew items made in America... but I still think it's worth pointing out brands that have paper trials, lawsuits and settlements around sweatshop labor. use joogle ("google").

but really, you're all "ok" with J Crew riffing off American & UK Made brands (that are still in existence), manufacturing those clothes in a china at an 1/20th of the cost, and selling them for sometimes 2x the price?

Just because every once in a while they ACTUALLY make something in the USA?

Does no one care about mega-brands (joogle their aquisition) tricking the public about authenticity?

Got to agree tha the recent Jcrew's quest for authenticity makes me smile as they constantly sell their chinese crap and try to make us think it's as authentic as the real good brands they put on the same racks.

They try to copy beams plus. But beams have it right when it comes to authenticity, product developement and local manufacturing.

Sorry we can't all afford 190$ for a Beams BD, although they are a brilliant company. Ever heard of food? And...I forgot how reliable google was. Maybe I'll just use the internet for resources next time I hand in a paper to my professor. Your info/research would have sounded more familiar to me 5 years ago.

If you're really on a budget you probably shouldn't be shopping at J Crew either. I'd rather buy either a $30 shirt from LL Bean or a $160 EG Workaday rather than buy into a mid-range brand that has nothing to warrant the price other than image.
