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.

  3. If anyone is looking for lightweight wool suiting in grey or navy, go to jjill.com and type "simple 120" (yeah...) into their search box. A phenomenal deal, and not final sale. Size down one from your J crew sizes. The tall pants are now all sold out (sorry guys!) but plenty of regular and petite sizes in jackets and pants are still available. Code "FRS412" gives you $5.95 shipping on any order. Love this stuff.

  4. It's interesting how J. Crew is obsessed with virtually the same print as Kate Spade at the moment (the "fanfare" print and a Florence Broadhurst print, respectively).

    1. I noticed that too! I love the Tretorn sneakers Kate Spade has in fanfare/fingers print.

      The Kate Spade friends and family is this weekend.

  6. This striped dress over at Gap reminds me so of 90's/early 00's J. Crew. If you can find it in your size in store, it is surprising well-made of sturdy, quality fabric. TTS in the body, bustier ladies size up.

  7. Received an L.L. Bean Signature catalog in the mail today, and there are some VERY cute things. I'm thinking of placing my first order...does anyone know if their clothes run TTS/comparatively to J.Crew? TIA!

    1. I'm usually a two in J. Crew and wear that size in LLBS's dresses and tops. Their pants vary, though. LLBS does have online chat, and they're great about providing measurements.

  8. I reviewed the Barbour® Women's Utility Jacket and how it compares to J.Crew Downtown Field Jacket HERE.

  10. I got a cute pair of kelly green khakis at ON the other day for like $20 maybe. They're a little more casual than the jade cafe capris, but for a trend, I think I'm happier spending only $20.

  11. My girlfriend had on the cutest pair of bright blue colored denims yesterday with bright red stripes on top, adorable. The jeans were ankle length, but more "matchstick" than "toothpick," which I loved. She said she got them at JCPENNEY. The brand is Bisou Bisou and she said they were $15 on sale for the month of April, colors include green, pink, purple, and yellow too. FIFTEEN DOLLARS! For a trend that is halfway over before I even get into the game, I may check them out next time I'm at the mall!

  12. ruffles, yes JCP has some cute items; just have to do a little hunting and the prices are super. The quality is not bad either esp. for trendy items. I seem to pop in there quite often and just talk a walk around....
