After their surprising victory in this week's Tipped Cardigan Round-Up, we thought it might be time to give
J. Crew another look. We'd always considered them to be almost as lame as Benetton, who were the poster child for excruciatingly boring preppy crap until American Apparel came along and won the title. So we surveyed their entire collection, and alas, that great cardigan was an anomaly in a sea of hoodies, worn-out shirts, and the kind of denim we'll all be very embarrassed about years from now. And frankly, "J. Crew" sounds like the nickname a "Saved by the Bell" cast member would use when launching a rap career. Better luck next year, Mr. Crew.
