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. Rant: I’m a bit annoyed with LL Bean today. I received a pair of Wicked Good shearling lined leather slippers in the mail today. The slippers themselves are amazing. I absolutely love them. But the way they were packaged for shipping was very disappointing. No shipping box or wrapping; they just slapped a shipping label on the shoe box! Like most shoe boxes, it’s made to allow air flow. It has a one inch diameter round hole plus two slits cut into the box, so there was nothing protecting the slippers from rain, snow, dirt, insects. I was shocked that a company like LL Bean would be so careless with shipping merchandise, so I called to let them know this was happening. The rep who answered the phone acted like I was unreasonable to expect a shipping box and insisted they always ship their shoes in the shoe box, without any wrapping. My opinion of LL Bean dropped substantially after that call.

  2. Stubbs and Wootton promo Extra 20. Have some really cute shoes, slippers and mules at a great price with the additional 20% off.
