The originally submitted version of this puzzle included two more theme entries: LONG JOHNS and DIRTY JOBS, which were placed at 27/28-Across and 43/44-Across, respectively. Unfortunately, there aren't many famous people named JOB, so those entries had to go. Even without those two, however, there are still five themers, which I think is plenty for a CREW.
Using five theme entries is plenty impressive. Getting three of them to interlock makes the puzzle a wow in my book—Alex is truly a grid wizard! In the fill, he included plenty of midlength fill to spice things up. My favorite bonus entries are COCCYX, INDY CAR, MALTESE, BEJEWEL, and SPACEX. That's a lot of fun stuff, especially for a puzzle that's already so theme dense. The short fill is also smooth and Tuesday-easy all around. And finally, if you're wondering who came up with the brilliant title "J.Crew," that was all Alex.
