"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following updated feature from J.Crew.
During yesterday's new arrivals, J.Crew also included Part 2 of their "Made-in-Italy" feature, with a neat little video titled "About a Thread":

Why do we insist on "Italian made" for our men's shirting and suiting fabrics? Because we obsess over every detail and want to make sure our designs are the best of the best, from start to finish– and the artisanship and craft that go into making Thomas Mason and Crespi fabrics are second to none (they're exactly what you'd expect for some of the most important pieces in your closet). So our design team traveled to each of these centuries-old Italian mills to discover in detail the processes involved in making these fabrics– and they caught it all on film.

Once again, I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes look. It was fascinating to visit the town & production center of Thomas Mason. Did you notice the quick appearance of sequin pants too? ;) I look forward to seeing the last video "About a Print".
What are your thoughts on the video? Do you think you like the styles more now that you have seen the video?
