"Thanks!" to Belle de Jour who was kind enough to not only let us know that J.Crew was featured in Martha Stewart Living Magazine (on page 58 of the June 2009, Number 187 edition), but also scanned the image for us to view.
The article includes the following:
Three-piece suit A dark mix-and-match suit in a medium-weight fabric, such as this one by J.Crew in merino wool, remains wrinkle-free and can be worn most of the year. Launder the ensemble together to make sure the colors continue to match. Jacket, $230, skirt, $118, and pants, $135, jcrew.com.
I believe the suit they are referring to is the Super 120s Two-Button Jacket (Item 86034; $230.0) and the Favorite-fit Super 120s Durham pant (Item 96108; $135.00). The "flutter skirt" appears to be a new arrival.
I own three suits from J.Crew and I love them all. They are classic in style, always providing me that professional appearance. However, I never considered washing the suits in a washing machine, or by hand, myself. What do you think the article meant by "launder"- to have the suit cleaned at a dry cleaner, or for customers to wash the suits with their washing machines, or by hand?
What are your thoughts on the suit? What are your thoughts on J.Crew's suiting in general? Would you recommend their suiting? How do you care for your J.Crew suits? :)
