J. Crew has an almost perfect record in finding brands to collaborate with on collections that remain true to the cultivated Americana of the brand’s ethos. The new collection, made in partnership with Old Soldier, is no different. If you’re one of the uninitiated, Old Soldier is a Long Island-based clothing company that draws influence from New York’s maritime history to produce genuine nautical clothing and accessories that are timeless and very well made. The line-up with J. Crew has many of the staples in a capsule such as this: jumpers, caps, and tees, but the motifs have a definite vision of bygone boating and the still-present, thriving maritime community in the Mid-Atlantic shores.
