Kind of hypocritical on your part to show them...just trying to eek one last laugh out of them before it's not PC anymore?
I was surprised to read a "dis" in The J Crew Review (http://thejcrewreview.com/2012/03/19/j-cre…), a blog written by several young women that are seemingly addicted to J Crew, as are many of us, as evidenced by their readership. They highlighted your letter as a hallmark of what's wrong with J Crew lately and suggested that we write to J Crew if we have complaints, about anything, really. Curious, I read your letter, and I knew immediately to what your were referring. As I paged through my March catalog and came across the page selling mens "...as close to custom as it gets" shirts, my first thought was, "That's not true! That's just how mens shirts have always been sold." And my second thought was, "Well, that's pretty damned deceptive and downright disappointing." I disagree with the previous writer, mksolide81d, that we have little to no control over what corporations say in their ads. MONEY talks. When consumers stop spending, the head honchos listen. You can be sure that if many J Crew fans inundated corporate with letters, we would be heard. No, it isn't rocket science, but I believe that consumers have a right to honesty. And I am still optimistic enough to believe that people can make a difference. Thank you for your letter and column!
