Dear J. Crew

Dear J. Crew,

There are two things you probably don't know about me: 1. I wear your camp socks exclusively during these colder months, so props on that and 2. I'm not as big of a sweater-phile as these other bloggers.  Anyhow, I recently got a pair of your new lightweight marled cotton/acrylic/nylon made in the USA socks in authentic red.  Obviously, they are now my favorite pair of socks I have ever owned.  My question is this, can you guys make a sweater out of these?  I don't care if it's the same fabric blend or 100% wool.  That doesn't matter to me.  What matters is getting more of this incredible marled "authentic red" in my wardrobe.  Seriously, it is that boss in person, but you probably already knew that.  I'm thinking a boatneck knit or maybe a crewneck.  But, ultimately, that doesn't really matter either.  If you guys can make that happen I'd pay handsomely for the results.  I'll keep my eyes peeled, but won't hold my breath.


Cheers,
Lawrence

  4. Enough about socks and shit you crazy mother. And enough say "x is the truth". How can they be the truth if your just giving us your opinion on this shit?

  6. Or Wigwam socks for a good made in the USA option.

    How you expect anyone to take you seriously when you treat cotton blends and wool as an "either, or" is a mystery to me. Too much time shopping at the JCs and LECs of the world, I suspect -- cotton sweater sucker deals are a favorite trick of the overpriced "bargain" brands.

  8. LAS I picked up this same pair a couple weeks ago and you obviously copied me. Even if people hate on the crew for not being authentic outdoorsy sock shit, they do better color combos on the socks than any "real" camp brand, and the shit's made in Vermont so whatevs.

  9. I'm all about authenticity but these socks are so great that I just don't give a shit about the blend of the fabric. Especially when I get them for 75% off for working there.

  12. A couple weeks ago I had to pull over on the highway to defecate. I didn't want to drop a bomb right on the shoulder, so off came my camp sock. I just held the sock wide open while I squatted down and released a solid turd. Little to no break. Case in point, that these things absorb even the filthiest messes.

  14. I only wear Fox River socks. That's where it's at in my opinion. They're made in the USA and make great warm socks! Plus, I like the look of their ragg socks that were in GQ Magazine.

  15. They have sweaters at H&M that look like this, in this color! No boat neck tho, they have a button-up placket.

  18. Here I am in the previously mentioned H&M sweater. http://yrfkt.com/redsweater.jpg

    The neck's kind of weird. Model in-store had it buttoned up like a turtle neck with some atrocious look on his face, but I would not recommend that styling.
