There are many reasons why we love J.Crew. And one of them is how it manages to snag some of the most exclusive Japanese brands and bring them stateside for its In Good Company section. Now, small shops have done this before, but we’re talking about a major retailer. It’s done this with outerwear brand Nanamica, and now its adding Japanese sock maker CHUP to its shelves.
Not too long ago CHUP was one of the hardest sock brands to find. Pairs were only available in Japan, and one specialized shop in the U.S. carried them. Not only that, but the production is very limited due to the way the intricate patterns are made. That’s also why they cost a grip just for a pair. So cough up a little dough and keep your ankles cozy this winter by visiting the J.Crew website to purchase for $34.
