As publishers and fans of the various fashions in which we choose to don ourselves daily, I feel we are quick to send praise and give credit where credit is due. While I firmly believe in letting a company know that they done good, yall. I would feel remiss in not notifying them when I am less than pleased with their product. As much as it does pain me as I have been an avid / rabid supporter of the brand for a long while now, but I need to call out J. Crew on some recent purchases and instances not isolated to just me.
A week or so back, my boss emailed me asking if I had ever had issues with Crew and their buttons and zippers. Oddly enough, or maybe not so odd now, I have had problems with either zippers sticking or buttons coming unthreaded WAY too easily. Here is what my higher up had to say:
You ever have issues with quality of J. Crew stuff? I had three shirts and the buttons all blew up…cracked in the wash/dry. They did not have the right buttons to send me. Then the shirts got worn very quickly. Today, the zipper pull of my new jeans just fell off….second wearing of these.
The same things have happened to me, so I could share in his frustration. While J. Crew has proven themselves quite quiet in the social online realm, I still felt the need to show what happened to a few items from my collection.
I realize, yes, I could reaffix the buttons on the Utility myself, but I should have to. eah, I wear it regularly, but it’s also a utility jacket. And what’s the deal with the button shattering on the thermal? Anyone else been having issues with the fasterners of J. Crew?
Perhaps if we all band together, some action can be taken.
