look4less: chambray v. chambray?

Well, this is awkward.  I'm doing a look4less on these items solely because it pays to look at all of a company's online retailers.  In this case, we're discussing my retail love J.Crew and its counterpart J.Crew Factory.  If you're unfamiliar with how J.Crew runs its Factory stores, they actually manufacture items specifically for these outposts.  Unlike a stereotypical "outlet" that sells outdated/last season merch, J.Crew creates new items [usually based on their regular store gems and popular prints/fabrics] specifically for their Factory inventory.  SO, it's rare that they actually have the exact same item on sale at both, instead of a variation of the original.  

Pay Attention People: Factory Chambray Popover v. Faded Chambray Popover.  They didn't even bother to change the name.  Love it.  Poor planning on their part = win/win for everyone.
