14th and Corcoran St, NW

Thanks to Jeff for sending:

“Snapped this photo this morning through the window.”

Last month we learned that this J. Crew “will be men’s only product, with some exciting partnerships featured.” Plans were to open “sometime in 2016”.

    I really wish it wasn’t mens only. I wonder why jcrew planned for that? There is a large gay community there, but still…

    • Logan Girl

      Agreed! If they sold womens clothes I’d be there all the time!

      • anon2

        There are so few men’s only shops (most of which are just suit stores, and universal gear is closing) in DC compared to women’s only, I don’t see why this is a big deal. I mean there are 3 other J. Crew’s in the city even…let guys have a nice clothing store for once.

      If you go to the J Crew on F street, the men’s section is like a quarter of a floor so I think having one just for men makes sense.

        The one in Friendship Heights isn’t that big either.

    • Google “J. Crew Liquor Store”, it’s one of their signature stores in the whole country. I’m guessing / hoping this is something along those lines.

    What are we looking at in this photo? Is it just the fact that it’s something that says J. Crew on it?

    • +1, no clue what this is supposed to be.

  • I Dont Get It

    I don’t think this is “The Plan” that I had heard of previously. Or maybe it is?

    • Anon

      This is Part 3, please read the headline IDGI! This is the part that seeks to rid the city of ill-fitting, billowing clothing. Pants, shirts, jackets – the lot. Part 4 is shoes, I believe. Those will rid the city of all square-toed shoes. Can you imagine the eventual uproar?

    • dcd

      I was confused by that also. Is there some unfortunate reference to The Plan ™ that I can’t read?

      • Anon

        Many church groups believe(d) that there was/is a concerted Plan (TM) by DC to kick black people out of the city.

        • dcd

          I know (wasn’t that obvious, given the sarcastic ™ in my post?). I’m just not sure about the connection here. Is there something in the picture that suggests that this is part of The Plan? Is just the fact this it is a J Crew sufficient to make it part of The Plan.

          • I love the month of August very, very much

          • Anon

            Ah, sorry – that part confused me… I think the connection is that J Crew is pretty far out in terms of “gentrification”. Next step is the likes of City Center-types moving in (Burberry, etc) but I think we’re still quite a bit from that.

      I’m not easily offended, but given the current climate around the country I’m not sure even a joking reference is in good taste.

      • Anony

        …it seems that you are easily offended. There is nothing wrong with a little satire.

      • John

        Actually, you just sound very easily offended.

        • west_egg

          Okay, you and Anony are probably right. “Let’s marginalize black people, LOLOLOLOLOL!” Is that better?

  • Rich

    Their sales have been dropping for quite awhile, so who knows how long this will last. they rely a lot on outlet stores and their Madewell brand is the real money maker now.

  • Angry Parakeet

    Is this the building that used to be a sex club until a man stumbled and fell down the stairs and died?
