J.Crew Retiring Certain Colors Out Of Respect For The First Family

The First Family, as in, you know, the Obama's are huge fans of the brand J.Crew. The company's preppy aesthetic works great for a presidential image, and gives America hope that shopping off the rack is in fact acceptable.

The Obama's have been shopping with J.Crew for years and make a point to purchase everything from J.Crew specifically in the way that all Americans do, which is of course, admirable. Which is why Jenna Lyons' new statement has me a bit confused.

Today, Lyons told the Today Show that J.Crew would be discontinuing some of the styles worn by the Obama family. Well, not necessarily exact styles, but the colors of those styles worn by the Obama's. Why you ask? Lyons says it's “just out of respect for the first family.”

If the Obama's were shopping at J.Crew just like everyone else, why would the company need to respect them and their color choices? What do you think about this issue?
