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. Can anyone comment on how Madewell tops fit in comparison to JCrew? I have never ordered anything from them before, but I am loving one of the pullovers!

    1. kiwigem - I usually take S or M in J Crew. Usually S. In Madewell I take M most often. It depends on the cut, though. If it's oversized, I usually call and ask for the chest measurement if I'm thinking I might want a S. Sometimes I've ended up w/a S. One example is one of the chambray popovers. I'd call for measurements. They're quick to help. HTH :)

    2. Gigi to the rescue again! Thx :-)

    3. kiwigem - lol you're welcome :)

  2. The palm print dress at GAP is a surprise love for me this season. It's been so long since I *had* to have something from that store, too. IRL pic on my blog HERE.

  3. For Canadian JCAs, Reitmans is carrying the tossed hearts print this season on a lightweight crepe-y poly blouse with tab roll-up sleeves. Probably not as nice as J. Crew's silk version but for $30, it was good enough for me.
