Don’t you hate when you come up with something that you think is totally original and then you see it in a shop window or a catalog? It happens to us all the time and we’ve begun to wonder if there may be a J. Crew spy following us around all day.
First, J. Crew totally stole our idea of cutting off their embroidered critter chinos. We love embroidered critter anything, but the pants looked too stuffy. Scissors, a snip and a run thrugh the wash, and you’ve got subversive preppy slob-wear.
Now J. Crew is pushing the cutoff camp shorts. Dagnabit, we did this just a few months ago (during one of those weird winter heat waves we had)! Our Army camp pants we’re looking beat and our summer gear was in storage, so shorts they became. Between you and me, they were a whole lot cheaper than the J. Crew “originals.”
J. Crew cutoff camp short, $54.50
