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. I have a few Anthropologie reviews here. Madewell reviews to come!

  2. I recently noticed the Crop Kick jeans at Gap (I know, they've probably been out since spring, but I wasn't looking for new jeans and only saw them by chance last week while perusing the sale section). They look like a similar cut to the J.Crew Teddie pants, and come in chinos and several denim washes. I patiently stalked my size and ordered a pair in dark denim yesterday for about $15.

  3. Anthropologie is running a few promos right now. First, today is the last day to take an extra 25% off their sale items. I have some picks here.

    Also, if you're signed up for Anthropologie emails check your inbox for an email with the subject "Let's talk gifts (including 20% off for you!)" from last Friday, August 26. Take the short survey (about 10 mins to complete) and get a code for 20% off your full price purchase through Sept 6! We've been sharing our picks for that promo in this post.

  4. I haven't seen Zady mentioned here before, but they are having an end-of-summer sale with an additional 20% off. They have an "Essentials" line which includes sustainably and ethically USA-made products. The line is very basic, but includes a few nice sweaters in wool and alpaca (less-pilling), and at the sale price run around $100 each. I have the .06 Lightweight Alpaca Sweater and the .07 Alpaca Cardigan. I am also interested in the .01 Wool Sweater, but I am afraid it would run too long and lean on my short and curvy frame. Downside is that many smaller sizes are sold out, and the items are final sale. Sale ends midnight Labor Day.'s-sale (not an affiliate link)
