Our friends at UrbanDaddy just tipped us off to the latest J. Crew store opening in New York. It’s a lot like their Tribeca outpost, the Liquor Store, but they’ve got a few new tricks up their sleeve too.

For one, they’ve tempted one of our favorite sketch-bloggers, Richard Haines, to make an appearance at the store from noon to 2pm and 4pm to 6pm this Tuesday and Saturday. He’ll be making and handing out original sketches of whoever happens by, on whatever paper’s handy.

It’s not a bad idea: A good artist can be more trustworthy than a mirror if you’re trying to figure out whether that blazer’s a good fit.
