Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

This is the weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post (similar to the "Off On A Tangent" posts), where we can share our finds from other retailers that have offerings similar to J.Crew (like Anthropologie, LE Canvas, Gap, BR, Talbots, Ann Taylor, and the like.)

If you have recently encountered items that are similar to 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 experiences with certain merchandise pieces, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.

    1. Those Old Navy print shirts are fantastic!

      Does anyone have a decent coupon. Today appears to be the only day EVER Gap, Inc. Isn't running a coupon...

    2. ChocolateandWoolens: 20% off at Old Navy until 1.27.13 with code SECRET

    3. It looks as if the Old Navy SECRET code is one of those that is different amounts depending on your browser or the email you get. Apparently the savings are up to 30% off instead of just 20%.

    4. I think the quality of the Liberty shirts is very poor. I compared it to my other Liberty shirts from past J.Crew seasons as well as the real deal I got in the UK. The old navy ones are really nice. I got one and I think it is better made than the JCRew one and much less $

  6. LOFT was 60% off of sale items this past Monday -I picked up several pairs of pants that reminded me of the Pixies, Minnies, and Stovepipes - and I got them all for under $80.

  7. Loft has a lot of Minnie style pants in various colors, fits and lengths, and they are only about $50 right now with the 30 percent off in stores promotion. I even like the fit better than j.crews!! Definitely worth checking out.

  8. Just picked up the BR black denim legging, with is neither denim or legging, but really really skinny pants. Similar to Minnis I suspect (which have never ever come close to fitting me--too tight thighs, too big waist). These are pretty good, seem like they will hold their shape. 40% today in store or 30% off online makes them worth it.

  11. I was selected to be part of a Talbots advisory council. I get to view their catalogs early and make comments and get rewarded. Each survery yields a chance to win one of several gift cards. When I did this a couple of years ago I got a $100 gift card. Now they are up to $250. Regardless if I win it is fun to see their new clothing and accessories way ahead of time. I am really liking their new spring items.

  14. C Wonder has a coat and shoes that have a print strikingly similar to the J.Crew vintage violet print. Lots of other cute things too.

    I saw some of their platters at TJ Maxx for $4.99 the other week, though. I wonder how well they are doing?

    1. I have those polda dot jeans from the Gap. I love them so much more than the JC version. I find the polka dots more subtle and way cooler, kind of vintage-y.
