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. J Crew is not the only one having trouble - see here for an article in Slate about Anthro's troubles:

    1. Sigh. This is really silly. The answer to the retail climate troubles is quality control. Brands need to better curate their merchandise, make sure the price points are reasonable for the garments they're selling, get tailors in the design room and in the factories, and triple-check the quality of their merchandise. No one wants to pay $400 for an ill-fitting polyester sun dress that's dry-clean only.

  2. Ascena (parent of DressBarn & Lane Bryant) is buying Ann Taylor & Loft:

  3. And JCP is being sued for bouncy prices:

  4. Hey, all! I mentioned the Boden Fall 2015 preview was out a few weeks back, and I finally got around to doing a picks post. I focused on the dresses, tops, and knitwear today and will do the rest of the picks on Friday. You can find the post here.

  5. Equipment is running an extra 20% off sale items. The code is on their website-MD2015. Free shipping.

  6. The Kate Spade tweed Dorothy coat is on sale + 25% off with YOURS thru Tue, 5/26. I adore this coat. Here's the review..
