I was shocked and most pleasantly surprised to see that J.Crew is back in the prep game. After a solid half decade of carrying minimalist, one button, and boyfriend blazers, the brand is going back to its roots with the J.Crew Dalton Blazer. It has been a long time coming, at least since early 2016, when I realized the brand was moving away from its heritage aesthetic. It was a look with which I fell in love. From that moment, my J.Crew covet list grew smaller and smaller and my gripes as aired day-drunkenly on Twitter, more and more frequent.
Though I have not seen the Schoolboy Blazer offered since 2014, I retained four of the colorways that I purchased back then. (Sorry, the Cherry Red just had to go.) The J.Crew Dalton Blazer is a reincarnation of the Schoolboy Blazer; I have not been able to discern any differences between the two styles. It is single breasted with anchor detail brass buttons, functional buttons at wrists, back vent, and a contrast flip collar in some colorways. In the words of SNL’s Stefan, this blazer has it all.
The J.Crew Dalton Blazer is available in three colorways in the cotton / Irish linen mix. It is available in two colorways in the Italian stretch wool mix. Would you like to know the best part? It is available in sizes 2 through 20 in the tall range.
