Looking to The Official Preppy Handbook for serious inspiration the book served as a guiding principal behind the foundation of J.Crew, which opened back in 1983. Today many of the brand's beliefs from the popular literature still exist inside J.Crew and it's immediately noticeable from the brand's high-end selection of pants. A clean, conservative aesthetic serves as a template. While subtle designs and intrinsic accentuations are utilized for a little creative twist. The modern blend on timeless tradition seems as effortless as it is appealing. From leather pants to wide-leg pants each piece is as elegant as the next.
