Once a month, my beloved J.Crew piques my interest by placing new items on their website, and into stores.  And after a disappointing GANT Sample Sale, some of these new arrivals act as a kind of breath of fresh air to my otherwise sour disposition.*  Here are some highlights.

Something for those cool Fall afternoons, Woolrich John Rich & Bros.™ Upstate Blazer, $595 (above)

Or something for those holiday parties, Ludlow Black Watch Sportcoat, $495

 And speaking of black watch, Mougin & Piquard for J.Crew Grande Seconde Watch, $425

And even more Black Watch, Flannel Black Watch Robe, $69.50

An old favorite revisited, J.Crew Rollneck, $85

And a new collaboration, Fratelli Rossetti S.p.A. Dexter Penny Loafers, $630

And to go with that collaboration, Merino Dress Socks, $16.50

or perhaps, Fair Isle Camp Socks, $18.50

Something fairly practical, Sueded half-zip pullover, $59.50

Or just something for that aspiring writer in us all, J.Crew Notebook Trio, $29.50

Plenty more at JCrew.com.

*My disposition really isn’t sour.  After all, we’re only talking about clothes here.  We’re not saving lives.  At least, I don’t think we are…
