If you, like me, can spend hours scrolling through the Instagram account @lostjcrew, which features campaign and catalogue imagery that J.Crew originally shot between 1983 and 1997, I get the feeling that you’ll like the latest piece of news released by the retailer. Yesterday, J.Crew dropped its first round of iconic vintage pieces from that era, a program that will continue throughout the brand’s 40th-anniversary year.
Starting off strong, J.Crew hand-picked a selection of its signature rollneck sweaters in 14 different colors ranging from classic hues to bright shades of red, yellow, and green. The 100% cotton knit first made its debut in J.Crew’s catalogue in 1988 but has no doubt been featured countless times since, as it quickly became a staple for the brand. In turn, it’s made appearances on the @lostjcrew an immeasurable number of times, including here, in an autumnal shade of burgundy.
There’s only one catch. Since each sweater was handpicked and one of a kind, this drop is extremely limited edition, meaning that if you don’t act fast, it’s highly likely that the color you want will sell out. With that in mind, shop J.Crew’s just-launched vintage selection of rollneck sweaters below.
