J.Crew does barnhand-meets-banker at their new Upper East Side location which opened earlier today at Madison & 79th Street. The interior is less stuffy than most UES men's boutiques, a welcome change for the shopaphobic men. Featuring weathered wood recovered from old barns, the interior blends perfectly with tailored wool blazers and its signature clean, prepster look. The building is actually a former bank, and the lower level of the shop has the vault still intact in the back, this time filled with bags, vintage finds, and shoes. (One can argue that these are the only goods worth really protecting anyway!) Maybe the banker set will channel their inner barnhand with the Quoddy chukka boots that look too comfortable not to be worn on a weekend jaunt (city or country).
