J Peterman is back.

Or should we say, “J Pretentious.” I don’t remember where I heard that one.

J Peterman went bankrupt years ago, as I remember, so it seems someone has manage to revive the company and catalog.

J Peterman was my favorite clothing catalog. Sure the goods were overpriced and of mediocre quality, but the catalog itself was the real fun. Delicate watercolors of the clothing and accoutrements, who knew what they would really look like? Each description was a little story, feeding into some overprivileged entitled yuppie fantasy. So romantic. I deserve this.

I actually bought the cheapest things in the catalog, a couple scarves, just so they would keep me on the mailing list.
