Crewcuts on Rex and a Sneak-Peek to a Future Post!


Rex does not own much from crewcuts. I cannot justify spending that sort of money on things he will outgrow so quickly. However, the few pieces I have bought for him have been fantastic in that they hold up extremely well and I would dare say are made with more care than the adult line. This polo he is wearing is the only piece I have bought either of my kids at full-price. The polo was about 30 dollars and it was his first birthday (yes, I bought it in Feb. 2008) and the darn crab critter at the bottom was to die for, so I bit the bullet and got it. I have not regretted it once. As you can see he is still wearing it to this day...and it has been well over a year. I suspect he will wear this out...based on how it fits, I could see him wearing this till his third birthday.

I will say crewcuts on sale is the way to go...I have never had to worry about a piece selling out. That means those darling dresses that were in an e-mail recently that I know CW would look so cute in? I can definitely wait for a sale...they will still be there. :)


I will hopefully get some more images from this catalog up tomorrow. I can't promise, but I can try my best!!! :)

Rex is a total cutie! J. Crew needs to make a Crewcuts model!

My daughter has been wearing crewcuts since they came out; I have never bought her anything at full price though. I really watch for in store sales as well as online and have bought about 90% of her clothes for the past few years from JCRew--pants for around $7-10; wellies for $14;sweaters for $12-15 and a dress here and there all under $20. I buy her stuff to grow into as well.

He's adorable!! I can't believe it, but I have never bought crewcuts for my kids! I've never even seen it IRL! Maybe if the store I go to carried it...

He is soooooooooo adorable. I agree, Crewcuts should use him to model their cloths

awww...what a cutie! :)

can't wait to see the catalog! Is this the fabled fall '07 one I hear so much about? I was not on the mailing list at that time so I missed out!

Rex looks absolutely ADORABLE! I have bought a few Crewcuts pieces on sale, but can't afford to outfit all my little guys in the line on a regular basis. The Tampa J.Crew has a Crewcuts so I was able to get some really FABULOUS deals then they had extra 30% off, but I'm only there a couple times a year. The Orlando J.Crew doesn't have Crewcuts, unfortunately.

Emily: I would love for Rex to be a crewcuts model!!! Maybe they would give free samples away to me and CW, too. Well, regular J. Crew samples for me, but you knew that! (Oh and the income would be nice for college savings!) We can all dream, right?

Anon at 4:09: Thank you, I will bear your thoughts in mind when I shop next time!!!

sparrowsandsparkles: I have bought crewcuts on-line and from ebay and have not been dissapointed. I figure if they are on super-sale and they don't work for Rex or CW, I can always give them away...but I have yet to not keep one of the items. (And when you see them in real life for the first time, your heart will nearly stop from how freaking cute they are...you should have seen my reaction to a pair of spearmint patent shoes I bought for CW...AGH...TOO CUTE!)

shopaholicdiva1027: I agree...if only because I am his mommy and well, all mommies think their little ones are just the cutest ever... :)

AppGal: Thank you and yes, it is the Paris Catalog. I have already posted some pics from the catalog in early February, but today I am posting more. At some point today there will be a couple more pics from the catalog here...and then a few more over the next few days!!!

FFM: Yes, crewcuts on sale is just wonderful. Then the clothes are in the territory of carters regular-price. (Which is a lot cheaper!) And since we both have boys, aren't the pieces wonderfully durable...that polo has held up to a lot of abuse!!!

Roxie: He also has an argyle vest you should have him wear...too cute...I will show you on Friday!!!
