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. Wondering if any JCAs have ordered from British retailer Poetry. I just received their fall catalogue and they have some lovely-looking wool and alpaca pieces.

  2. Hi JCA's - if you like a camo tee but don't love the JC colorway, Gap has a V-neck version in a light grey. Feels nice - very soft.

    1. Thanks for this info! I haven't ordered the JC version bc I prefer V-necks on me, so I'll be sure to check this one out tomorrow (if it's still in stores.) Thanks!

  3. After a very long and healthy break from Joe Fresh (and having missed last week's J.Crew 60% off sale), i wound up buying a few of their bandana print pieces which I'd been stalking. Like J.Crew and gingham, Joe Fresh decided to do absolutely every single piece imaginable in a bandana print this season. I scooped up a tee, and scarf, as well as a pair of linen-look cotton slouchy pants, and a navy/silver cardi, all for $50 CAD. I'm heading back to a different location tomorrow to grab the bandana-print faux birks, they'll be really cute with white pants if it EVER stops raining here. Though too short for me, their red bandana print shorts are very cute and the fabric is a nice heavier weight.

  4. Received the RACHEL WIDE CROP CHINO PANT(WM471) from Boden today. I ordered both a 6 and an 8. I often take a 6 or 4 in J. Crew and the 8 was right for me in the Boden Rachel. The fit is flattering - leg is wide but not too wide, imo. The fabric is a nice weight but the white is still pretty see-through. They might work if I sew the pockets shut and cut them out. They also come in Navy and Sand.

  5. Hi JCAs! Anthropologie sent out a link to their August Pre-Shop yesterday, plus there is an extra 40% off sale AND Free Shipping on ALL orders until the end of tomorrow. I've shared my personal picks on my blog today in this post. Lots & lots to love! :)
