Even though we can't remember a time before the Jenna-fication of the J. Crew catalog, we can remember every single trial and tribulation of team Dawson's Creek. Thank god, then, that Buzzfeed spotted a 1998 catalog on Ebay (going for $124!) in which Joey, Pacey, Jen, and Dawson model the best of J Crew's '90s fare. Now see the gang look jolly in cable knit sweaters. Now see them scale a tree in khaki chinos. Hope you're taking notes, Jenna Lyons. [Buzzfeed]
