New J Crew Store On Upper East Side

Lately I have been kind of obsessed with J Crew.
Under the keen eye of Mickey Drexler the brand can do no wrong!
Love the Liquor Store in Tribeca, the website and the women's stores in Malibu, etc.
Now a new mens store recently opened in NY's UES.

Says The Choosy Beggar:
"J.Crew’s just-opened men’s store on 79th & Madison. Ten years ago, the brand wouldn’t have dared invade the Upper East Side with a two-story stronghold catering to the city’s better dressed men. Yet, vitalized by a clear executive vision and a collection of first-rate partnerships, Crew can now go where ever it darn well pleases. The location is actually a natural fit for a brand that’s come to represent classic style (with a hint of old-school luxury) for a new generation of shoppers. “The feeling of luxury is new,” Frank Muytjens, VP of men’s design, told us Tuesday morning. “But it’s layered on top of the same brand values.”
