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. Going to a Boden warehouse sale sat...Never seen too many Boden clothes before but I will check out the sale. Some people on here have compared it to J. Crew...we shall see.

    1. Ooh, how exciting! Please report back, I love Boden!

  2. After a two-year hiatus, I finally went back to Banana Republic (I've bought 2 Sloans, a shirt here or there, but not very much else.) I was put off by their boxy designs and the zeal with which they started to embrace polyester, so after being my mainstay for a long time, I stopped shopping there almost entirely. After browsing their new arrivals this past weekend (& thanks to a great review by a fellow JCA, OperaRach!) I was curious about their new offerings and I was pleasantly surprised. The 40% Cardmember discount helped me buy some spring items such as the Watercolor Pencil Skirt, 2 Merino sweaters in fuschia and blue, thin suede belt and another skirt. Their new pant style (Ryan) seems promising, although the fit didn't work for me personally (BR pants rarely do). In any case, I was pleasantly surprised and have already wishlisted a few other tops.

  3. Club Monaco has 30% off sale and clearance this weekend. I placed a small order for a couple summer tops (love the Katie sweater). Shipping is $ but you can save a few $ choosing economy-it never takes very long to receive.
