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. Another month, another Helmut Lang Surplus Sale (concluded). I got the Scoopeneck Jersey Dress for a song ($36).

    Clothingline just concluded a store-based Theory & HL Sale. How bad are things in the clothing sector?

    M.M. LaFleur is having an "invitation only" sale. But prices aren't compelling. I have a few gift cards but haven't bought anything from them yet.

    1. To answer my question about the dire straits of the fashion industry, an article titled 'Sweatpants Forever' in the NYT Magazine on August 6 states:

      'For years, Sternberg had been saying that the fashion industry was a giant bubble heading toward collapse. Now the pandemic was speeding up the inevitable. In fact, it had already begun. An incredible surplus of clothing was presently sitting in warehouses and in stores, some of which might never reopen. "That whole channel is dead," Sternberg said. "And there's no sign of when it's turning again."'
