J Crew Fall 2009 Menswear Favorites

August 12th, 2009

It’s no secret that we’re fans of J Crew’s classic American style.  We’ve reviewed their Fall 2009 collection and edited it down to the staples that you’ll be reaching for over and over again.  Here’s our six favorite picks from J Crew’s Fall 2009 menswear collection:

fatigue-jacket_081009
Fatigue Jacket | $168 at J Crew
How to wear it? Wear your fatigue jacket with a bright color inside to get a look that’s thoroughly inappropriate for boot camp.

cotton-cashmere-cardigan_081009
Cotton Cashmere Cardigan | $69.50 at J Crew
How to wear it? We’re loving a fitted navy cardigan worn just as it’s shown - with a pair of white jeans.  So fresh and so clean.

thermal-henley_081009
Thermal Henley | $42.50 at J Crew
How to wear it? Pair this supersoft henley with your rugged fatigue jacket for a look that mixes soft and hard.

solid-tweed-sportcoat_081009
Solid Tweed Sportcoat | $265 at J Crew
How to wear it? Mustard yellow (as shown) or blood orange, with a splash of pure white, will make this grey tweed sportcoat shine.

secret-wash-button-down-scholar-tartan_081009
Secret Wash Button Down Shirt in Scholar Tartan | $59.50 at J Crew
How to wear it? The pattern of the season, tartan plaid, works great under a fitted cardigan and dark rinse jeans.

black-resin-crinkle-wash-straight-leg-jean_081009
Straight Fit Jean in Black Resin Crinkle Wash | $98 at J Crew
How to wear it? Take a break from your standard blue jean, and try these inky black jeans.  Best paired with vibrant colors, like this bluish purple.

    Great selection! I can vouch for the fatigue jacket. Bought mine last weekend. The fit is slimmer than what you might think from the model pictures, and it has a lot of nice details. Now I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can start wearing this!

    Trish, I’m curious if you’ve looked at the work shirts, the ones with the collar tab. There’s a white and grey one I’ve had my eyes on for a while. What do you think of them?

    EDIT: I mean, two shirts, one in white, one in grey.

    Sorry for the delay Gary - which shirts are you looking at?

    FWIW, I have my eye on the mini-gingham button down:

    Wish they made that in a women’s cut!

    Sorry, the one I’m talking about is actually called the “broken-in chino utility shirt,” shown here: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/MensBrowse/Men_Shop_By_Category/shirts/utilityshirts/PRDOVR~95881/95881.jsp

    I like that mini-gingham. In fact, I have last year’s version. Very versatile, very nice-fitting. Simple but classic.
