"Looking to LOVE" with J.Crew

This is the weekly "Looking to LOVE with J.Crew" post, a place to share our favorite experiences with J.Crew.

If you have recently experienced a positive situation with J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Please feel free to share your story on almost any topic— including stellar experiences with purchases & orders, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.


  1. Whoa - new arrivals today AND a new promo, this time a tiered promo of 25% off $150+ and 30% off $250+!

    ...But I am so shopped out at this point, I doubt I can take advantage of it. Black Friday sales really got me this time around!!

  2. These recent 25% & 30% off anything promos are fantastic! And no final sale right now, either! Well done, J. Crew!

  3. Great promo! I was swamped with family obligations last week and didn't have a chance to shop so I'm thrilled. Just placed an order and may place another after work.

  4. Had a wonderful experience getting a price adjustment. The double cloth slim trench was on sale last week for $269.99 for regular and petite but tall was only $239.99. I purchased with 30% off in petite and love, love the coat. But this morning, the regular and petite which BTW use less material than the tall was also at $239.99. So I called and got a price adjustment of $21.94. Thanks to Lauren (PSA) I spoke to, she was pleasant and even said that all these promotions are CRAZY to keep up with.

  5. Hi all - this is a bit off topic but I know that many of us rave about how much we love our VPSs. Is is proper to give them a gift this time of year? If so, any ideas on what to give?

  6. In a fit of pique I wrote to CS regarding the nonfunctional buttonholes on the men's blazers, sportcoats and suits. I received a prompt response explaining that the decision to offer nonfunctioning buttonholes was made so that altering the sleeve length would be a simpler fix for the customer. The CS further explained that the JCrew tailoring service, which is free to cardholders, would make buttonholes functional in any jacket or blazer for $15. I think this is a great solution as nonfunctioning buttonholes on sleeves are sure sign of poor workmanship and function almost always trumps nonfunction.
