Typically when we think of J. Crew, thoughts of cable sweaters, cigar slacks and preppy accessories cross our mind.

The mid-priced American brand hopes to fall into the luxury market with a updated version of their signature Edie purse. The normal price point of the bag is $238 to $298, but the new alligator version will retail for $1,500. Yes, that’s right, $1,500!

Only sold at the brand’s Madison Ave flagship store, a lesser python version is also available on their site for a cool $795. If it seems insanely priced, J. Crew describes it as “[a] one-of-a-kind bag is hand-finished in New York City with antiqued hardware, twill lining and a detachable shoulder strap—so you can carry it as a clutch like Jenna does.”

So, you convinced to buy this?
