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. Ily Couture has its knock off of the Rosebloom necklace on sale for $16 with code OCTBLOOM. I haven't bought this particular necklace from Ily before but have purchased several of their bubble necklaces and think the quality is quite good on those.

    1. 40% off still going on this weekend. If you are looking for a herringbone vest, I just bought really cute one. Black & white, down filled, side pockets. Snaps only no zipper. Fits same as jcrew one. $98 prior to 40% off

  8. LOFT is doing 50% off full-price styles till 7pm EST with code TAKE50. I find them to be some of the worst offenders when it comes to exposed zippers, but they have some JC knockoffs and I can usually find stuff to like in their loungewear. Plus, they're home to Gigi's world famous modern straight leg jeans!

    1. silver_lining - Woooohlaaaawdyeeees I looove those jeans. I'll take this time now to confess that I have at least 4 pair of the modern straight and 5 pair of the modern skinny ankle. My heart starts racing when I can't find them. I'm wearing them. I'm wearing them in my ON reviews in today's post. I finally tried on all my jeans and I think I'm left only w/the ones from Loft and about 3 other vendors. I think only 1 pair of J Crew made the cut.

  9. I got a denim/chambray shirt at Nordstrom today that other JCAs might like. Item #682349 I like it because of its fit (JC shirts are often too narrow in the bust for me) and because it has a vintage workwear style. The buttons are painted white metal and distressed to look old.

  10. Gap has a herringbone puffer vest, which also comes in petite and tall sizes, for $88. Take 35% off with GAPSAIL.

    1. Full (exposed) back zip? Absolutely no. That can't be comfortable to sit in!

  12. Does anyone have the Land's End Blakely riding bood? I am concerned that the calves will be too baggy. The "item dimensions" pdf never loads so I just dont know. Any input would be appreciated, since most of the reviews are from people who ordered the wide calf version. I need narrow as possible calves!
