  1. lena! i had that too! oooofff thanks for the trip down memory lane– i’d hide cigarettes in that front pocket. mine was green. and i wore it with those brown suede bass loafers. memories.

  2. I still have mine in blue! I am excited to break it out this year after a long while. I always loved wearing mine.

  3. AH! I had that! (but mine was blue). Remember how SOFT it was? It was almost fuzzy.. 🙂
    Thanks for the flashback!

  4. I’ve been looking all over the internet for this bad boy without even knowing the correct name, so as you can probably guess, I’ve looked through over a thousand pics of “vintage/classic/discontinued” J. Crew hooded pull-over and after finding the right combination of words finally found it here. I never had one, but always wanted one. I don’t know what it says about me that I’m looking for a “Vintage J. Crew Anorak” from the mid 90’s but I still want one. I always wanted the Navy Blue/White one, but never had the $$ and with one prep school and one catholic school tuition, my mom never had the dough to drop on something that wasn’t part of the required blazer/slacks/tie dress code at my school. Now that I’m grown and can afford to buy my own stuff, of course it’s discontinued. Sucks to be me, I guess.

    • very funny! well, you should feel less alone – you’re not the only one searching google for a “vintage j crew anorak”. maybe we can start a petition for them to reissue it.

  5. My son had the reversible madras one from JCrew–I used to sneak and wear it all the time. We still have the above jacket in green! Love the pockets!
