J.Crew is the average American's idea of “dressing well”—and that's not inherently a bad thing. Most guys look to J.Crew to provide them with wearable basics that include everything from tees to suiting to necessary knits. You may not have a standout wardrobe shopping here, but J.Crew's “middle fashion” approach ensures that just about everything they produce is wearable, of decent quality, and worth the price. 

Journal Standard is created with roughly the same philosphy. Making clothes that are for everyday, it's a label that you can rely on to create a solid looking kit just by assembling assorted pieces from the label. Journal Standard has four major lines, and whether you're shopping the main line, the the upscale Trisect, the modern and almost unisex Relume, and the workwear-ispired J.S. Homestead line, you're in good hands when copping from the Japanese label.
