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. Cambridge Satchel Co just started its winter sale, 40% off certain sizes/colors at Some good deals to be had, and the bags are excellent quality. Items ship from the UK but in my experience usually arrive here in Nowhere, WI in less than a week.

  2. Madewell - Four reviews here - a scarf, tailored tee, lycee blazer and downtown sweatshirt

  3. I visited the Ann Taylor site today. Surprised, to say the least. Their new arrivals are really good. Much better than the last year or so. I think I recall reading they had a new creative director or something. Whatever they changed, it worked. They have a lot of tweeds for spring, cotton blends. Sure there's some poly in there but it's a supporting player and not the main content. The geo set, the fringe tweed set, the denim shirt dress, all appeal to me.
