Crew Clothing - is it for a "certain age"?

I used to shop in CC for years but stopped when a few comments were made around me (not whilst wearing it) that it was a bit... fuddy duddy. Now I've seen this white tunic on this blog (and lots of others I think they must be doing a campaign!!!) I'm wondering if it's "cool" again! I feel so old saying this, I'm 42!

Do any of you have stuff from there? Thoughts?

I'm nearly 50 and wear it. Mostly because it's practical and wears well.
Am decidedly unstylish though.

I'm 25 and will occasionally find something I like in Crew - I personally wouldn't buy that tunic as it would make me look a lot bigger than I am but it could be lovely on someone slim or with a more hourglass figure to give it shape.

On another note it's quite possible the second blog is sponsored by crew.

I'm a size 12 for reference often mistaken for a 10 by people who buy me clothes but that length combined with the lack of shaping and bulkiness would make me look at least a size bigger for a more detailed answer.

I have a pair of green cords from Crew. I quite like them, except I don't wear them very much because I secretly suspect that they make me look like Buttons.

I'm 59 and I've never bought from them although they keep sending me their catalogues. If I saw something I like'd there I'd buy it though as I don't really care about any demographic stuff.

I wouldn't wear that tunic as I think it would make me look a bit lumpy and that mid thigh length doesn't flatter me at all. (Plus I'd never wear white as I'd spill my dinner down it.)
