What whaaaaaat! This is the first I've heard of said Jcrew liquor store - will definitely visit and report back :)
That is a great store, Uncle B. We have another cool one in Dallas that is similar by Ralph Lauren, the "Rugby" store. Very Old School, lots of skull and crossbone stuff (replaces the traditional polo horse on everything.) You'd also like Billy Reid, based in Dallas but opening up new stores in New York and maybe other places (full of great stuff, including vintage hankies/pocketsquares, haberdashery, etc.)
Holy moses, I had no idea this was there. I guess it's because I'm not a JCrew gal but still. I'm going to have to pop in to this one!BTW, I stumbled into your blog through English Muse's blog and all I can is wow. Total eye candy. LOVE IT!I've jumped on as a follower and am adding it to my bogroll toute suite! So feel free to stop on by for a visit anytime. Heck, you might want to follow mine too!All the best and thanks for sharing- THL
Sounds pretty interesting. J Crew has come a long way. I first started shopping via catalog in 87. I haven't purchased from them in awhile. Nice concept from them.
ooo i hadnt heard about this! our jcrew isnt quite as sexy. theyve really done some fun stuff creatively in the last few years
Hey Beefy!I was actually there several weeks ago on a brief trip, and a friend thought I'd enjoy it.I wanted everything in there!It was cool, and the staff wasn't annoying.TBFXOXO
very cool! they need one in los angeles!!
yet another reason to go to NYC right now!
I was there 2 days ago and it was everything I thought it was going to be and more. I had been chomping at the bit to go and with a 3 day swing trough NYC it was way high on the list. My son was willing to spend his entire college fund on a shopping spree there. If he gets a good scholarship we can celebrate on our next trip.
I'm with Daisy - I've been and it was what I expected, only better. Not nearly as faux-sceney as a RL Rugby store and work definitely went into thoughtful merchandising. Resale of vintage Rolexes, proprietary books on men's manners and so forth. You must stop by! And then have lunch at Cafe Sabarsky or Bubbie's before heading back uptown...
Love your site, and I would say byrd said it all (see above). The store is so well done in it's authenticity and the merchandising is top drawer. I am always looking forward to your next post.best, BB
