J.Crew’s Top Secret $288 Chinos: Are they Really worth it?

viagra over the counter walmart had a very interesting post today on J. Crew’s new chinos.  The sticker price for these chinos are $288. Are they really worth it? Let’s see what Mike has to say:

You’re looking at the most underrated pair of khakis on the market.

Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed something interesting relating to canadian cialis with 2 free viagra. After randomly talking to three people who work for three different clothing companies (who are not J.Crew) I began to notice a pattern. Curious, I had asked each of these people a simple question: “Who makes your pants?” One by one they all told me (in a hushed voice, seriously) that they are from J.Crew. It was almost as if these pants were some sort of speakeasy and they didn’t want the rumor to get out. I understand that they didn’t want to be seen as a defector, but this was an amusing situation considering we are talking about a pair of cotton pants.

All of the intrigue around these khakis led me to the J.Crew Liquor Store to take a look for myself. I ended up leaving with my own pair and have gone to wear them roughly 25 times in the span 30 days. I had to ask myself had I joined a secret club of amazing pants?

Selvedge is a nod to the early 19th century, when fabric was woven on narrow looms and the edges were sewn together to create a “self edge” that helped prevent fraying (a colored thread was often incorporated to help the mill tell fabrics apart). We continue this great tradition with a small-batch, rigid cotton twill that’s woven in Japan. The dense, unwashed fabric will slowly fade, break-in and “whisker,” just like a pair of jeans. (The more you wear them, the better they get. Good thing they’re built to last.)
