"Looking to VENT" with J.Crew

This is the weekly "Looking to VENT with J.Crew" post, a place to share our not-so-stellar experiences with J.Crew.

If you have recently experienced a frustrating situation with 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 poor experiences with purchases & orders, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.


  1. Hi JCAs! I can't read this, but the headline says it all.

    1. Yikes!!! I wonder what happened and what can J crew do now? Just as it seemed like design was turning around too.

  2. Just came to post this. Wtf. I’m upset with him.

  3. If you read the article, Jcrew is rising out of bankruptcy, he is leaving before they fire him

  4. They are bringing in someone from Victoria's Secret

  5. Part vent, part review. After buying the high waisted pleated tapered pants in brilliant sunset and not finding anything in my wardrobe to coordinate I noticed the Parke linen blazer and the cotton crepe cardigan in the same color. I contacted CS who didn’t know if they would match. So far I got the blazer and it not only doesn’t match, it totally clashes. The blazer is an almost fluorescent red orange and the pants area little darker and slightly muted.
    Honestly I didn’t pay much attention to the fit of the blazer because the color is so off. My guess is the cardigan will be closer to the blazer than the pants.
    I guess calling something the same exact specific name doesn’t mean they match anymore. FWIW, there was another blazer the same color name that was shown with the pants as well and a reviewer said it didn’t match either.

  6. Chris Benz leaving is good for my wallet. I bought so much this year!

  7. I was only a fan of a small rollout in the beginning. Other than that, I never really cared for any of the rollouts after that one. I saw his work years ago when he was hired to design for Bill Blass and I thought it was really bad so when he became the head designer for JCrew I wasn't excited at all.
