Well then they re-released the same cute pattern this winter and threw in a promo - and add that to a gift card I already had - and well ... I caved. Even though I don't need another puffer vest ... and actually don't prefer the flap pockets and now-missing the two-way zipper of the redesigned vest (Factory still carries the older style puffer).
But the pattern got me. And the overall style is just the right kind of preppy-lumberjack I like. And of course the $%$%$% off. You've got me again, J.Crew, well played.
