Shop Alert: J. Crew Mens Shop Opens in Copley; Women’s Expands

The J.Crew Mens Shop opened at Copley Place in Boston this week. This is the company’s first dedicated all mens store outside New York City. The original J. Crew store across the way is now entirely devoted to women. A definite improvement, but first, a look at the new Mens Shop.

Looks a lot like Brooks Brothers to me, from the dark paneling to the scripty gold logo. Hmm. Guess the women’s collection is not the only aspect going all fancy.  (You DID notice the $600 items in the fall catalog, didn’t you?)

Same clothing that was across the way last week, and I suppose the cabinetry isn’t dissimilar, but the vibe feels stuffier.

Table of ties. Could do without the tartan.

Chambray and gingham hankies.

Love the hunk of slag glass.

Retro fans and other objects behind the register.

Heading across the way to the original space . . .

The women’s store is now wide open.

A shoe department was added in the back. Love the picture wall.

And more jewelry cases are scattered around the store.

No complaints here.
