It can be difficult to track down some of the most stylish clothes, but that's why there's J.Crew: the one-stop shop (most) everyone has access to. We know you normally shop there to cop a simple pair of chinos, an oxford shirt, and maybe a heavily-discounted Fair Isle scarf or cap, but you should also check for the brand's Ludlow suit collection.

The Crew took a trip to Italy’s Vitale Barberis Canonico mill that has started to manufacture fabric for Ludlow suits. In business since 1663, the mill breathes the continental cool that #menswear bros are so fond of. The mill even shows off fabric swatches that date back to the 19th century. So, next time you hit up your local J.Crew, you'll know exactly what you're copping. Watch the video below to get the full story.
