J. Crew - September Sneak Previews

The lovely J. Crew VPS has just sent me a few sneak previews for September, so naturally I thought of sharing them with you.

First off, the Duffle Coat. I have no description to go with it, but you cant go wrong with navy. The Selvedge Chambray Shirt has been around for a while, and the Adidas Gazelle Sneakers are also available at other retailers.

 Duffle Coat (B0647, $298)
Selvedge Chambray Shirt (07678, $98)(similar here, here, here)
Eastwood Jean in Dark Otis (B2596, $168)(similar here, here, here)
Adidas Gazelle Sneakers (B0493, $65)(here, similar here, here)

Next, the Shiny Puffer Vest. I love the rich colour of this vest, and can't wait to see it in person. Interesting worn over a coat. It's not something I would probably ever do, because it seems like overkill to me. But I do love the rich hues combined with the white pants a lot.

Shiny Puffer Vest (B1160, $138)(similar here, here, here)
Sateen Toothpick Pant (A9583, $98)(similar here, here, here)
New Balance for J, Crew 620 Sneakers (06690, $80)
Boyfriend Coat (A8907, $250)
Vintage Cotton Long Sleeve Tee (58157, $34.50)

The Jeweled Raglan Sweatshirt looks similar to the one from last year. I have already reviewd the Turner Pants here before.

Sharp-Edged Bangle (B5184, $68)

Twill suiting featuring a single button jacket. "The matching trouser has a relaxed, straight leg with zipper accents at the pocket and ankle. (28"inseam)"

Zip Cigarette Twill Suiting Pant (B0758)

Lastly, the Pinstripe Bomber Jacket. I could see wearing this with my denim skirt in the fall.

Have you seen the new style guide yet? If so, is there anything that caught your eye? Please share!

Hope you all had a restful weekend. I am taking advantage of the great weather we are having and went on 3 very long hikes this weekend. Have a great Monday, everyone!


  1. It is interesting - it really appears that J Crew is going more and more casual. Not a problem for me, but if I was working outside the home, I would have moved on to someplace else - zipped trousers where I worked wouldn't have been acceptable. Love the duffle coat!

    1. I am certain they will have enough pieces that we are accustomed to.... I love the coat too!

  2. Thanks for sharing your picks, Rose. I'm not sure about the Shiny Puffer vest, but the Boyfriend coat is intriguing. I really like the looks in the last two photos. I'm curious about the Dannie pant. How similar it is to the Pixie or Minnie.
    I checked out your review of the Turner pant. Would you recommend sizing down in these? I don't have any of the pants that you compared them to, so I am unsure about sizing. Thanks again.

    1. Hi maryeb!
      I bought the turner pants and got my regular petite size.
      it is a little slouchy,but i think thats the way it should fit.

    2. You can see me wearing it on my blog:)

    3. Sorry Rose that i butted in on your blog.Hope you dont mind:)

    4. Hi maryeb! I loved both the coat and th epuffer vest, just not together. I think I would size down in the Turner pants.
