    No, I think that would over-sexualize it and that's not what J-Crew is about.

    J.Crew and abercrombie and fitch are completely different. One is GENUINELY preppy, the other is pseudo/wannabe/faux/markets itself as preppy to the masses who don't actually get that style..

    I think this is awesome. J.Crew has always tried to encompass more than just the clothes they are selling, and I think this is an awesome thing they're doing. Not only showcasing the REAL people behind their brand, image and style, but also showing their support for anybody and everybody! (And also saving money by not needing to hire models ... ;)

    Pretty lame for depicting a gay couple. One of them is TOUCHING the other in a bro way. J. Crew is a fag line so I'm surprised they never had a spread of two gays hugging yet like you see those stupid hetero couple do in every god damn fucking ad catered to mainstream. If I had a clothing line the cover would be a penis going inside of a hairy anus with the tagline, "get over it."

    Sean Avery supporting gay marriage is a bigger story, and the guy who was fired from sportsnet for not supporting it in the aftermath. Things are happening out in the real world that affect us. Turn off the internet and turn on the TV news.

    So much hate represented in this post! I can't believe you called it a "fag" line. I can't believe you used this word to express your hatred for J Crew. Shame on you and I'm calling Jenna Lyons right now on the J Crew red phone hotline.

    Great now people are going to cry "Homosexual Agenda." This does not strike me as progress, just pandering to get Sodomites to purchase their clothing.

    Get WHO to purchase their clothing? What Sodomites do you mean? I've heard gays refer to themselves as fags, queers and homos, plus some other terms, but I can't recall gays calling ourselves Sodomites. Which is a right-wing Christian term for us. Please explain your meaning.

    They didn't go out and choose models, it is a J. Crew employee and his partner. Real people in a real world.

    This is the weirdest post I have read on here for a long time (and we do get some weird ones).

    DodgedBullet's and JakeBenson's posts were way out of line here. No one really has the right to use sodomite and fag in a derisive sense, but when gay men use it, it's really just a way to express self-loathing.

    Fine, I get it JakeB, you don't like J Crew. However, don't effing use the word "fag" to express your feelings.
