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. have reviewed the pinot embellished dress from anthropologie. Just GORGEOUS!! fit is TTS, price is crazy high but it looks great on and you can pair with simple grey or black pumps and evening bag. Highly recommend if you can afford it. My review pictures posted on my blog.

  2. Bought an Everlane cashmere crew for $100 as a test. Wore it once so far and zero pilling! Unlike the Jcrew cashmere T that pills within two hours. Too bad Everlane doesn't have a better color selection as I would love more exciting colors. I also wish they were slightly longer, but that's mostly because I am 5'7" and wearing an xs. Still a victory overall though.

    1. Yes, I like Everlane's cashmere, too! I don't have any from this season, but I've collected four v-necks over the past few years and all still look new. To me the v-necks seem longer, even though the measurements listed online are nearly the same.

  3. I've been reading the many posts regarding cashmere pilling, and realized my best looking cashmere sweaters are from Costco. About 7-8 years ago they had Kirkland brand cashmere sweaters in a few colours. I got two v-neck cable sweaters in pale green and chocolate brown. I've worn them both a lot and they barely have any pilling, so it just goes to show you that good quality cashmere does exist. I think they were only about $80-90. If I ever see Kirkland cashmere again, I'll definitely buy it.

  4. I agree with the positive clothing experience from Kirkland. A few years ago I bought a Tommy Hilfiger black gingham and a pink/black plaid flannel button down from Cosco.
    Ive worn them every year-- they're in great shape, comfortable and fit well. Overall surprised on quality and attention to detail and would buy again if offered again.

  5. I've been having good luck with the cashmere from Ann Taylor this season and last's. I bought the cashmere tunic turtleneck a couple of months ago and have been wearing it regularly. Plush, warm, and no pilling!

  6. Sundance is having their End of Season Sale Event, with an extra 50% off outlet items. This is such an amazing many pretty items for excellent prices. I've shared my personal picks, as well as reviews and pics for several items here on my blog.
