Call them what you like – pre-fall, late summer – the mid-July J.Crew new arrivals are here, and they are nothing short of outstanding. J.Crew celebrates the launch of the new Ludlow Dress Shirts, plus a return to some classic favorites in underwear, undershirts, and the ringer t-shirt. There are some great new sweaters, and an update of one of my favorites – the British Millerain Oilcloth Jacket, and some new versions of the MacAlister boot – now also a shoe. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. I can assure you I will be testing out the Ludlow shirt, and may indulge in a cashmere cable knit sweater…maybe.
LUDLOW SPREAD-COLLAR DRESS SHIRT IN SMALL GINGHAM $88
According to the J.Crew website, the new Ludlow shirts are designed with the proportions of the Ludlow suit in mind. The collar is slimmer to match the slim lapels, higher arm holes, shoulder darts, and split yoke. They are also made of 120′s two-ply cotton for extra sturdiness and drape. I was not a fan of their neck & sleeve dress shirts. At this price, these new shirts are a reasonable deal, and certainly worth a try. In addition to the one shown (gingham) they also have solid white and blue, a subtle blue stripe, a larger gingham, and a pink & blue tattersall. There’s also a point collar version. More after the jump…

THE MEATBALL SHOP COOKBOOK $28
And don’t forget to pick up your copy of The Meatball Shop cookbook. Because what better way to make sure your clothes continue to fit and stay nice and clean, than to eat lots of meatballs. Ok, that was sarcasm, but I do love a good meatball.
