"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. I’m wanting a super high rise wide leg pair of lightweight denim or chambray pants. Think more 70’s than 90’s. I’d think this style would be a no brainer this year—comfortable, easy to wear but still polished and yet I haven’t found exactly what I want. Ordered the Everlane easy jean a size up so the hip is looser (the elastic waist is fairly tight) and the super soft wide leg jean (found on sale) but in my experience the rise on the latter is not high enough. Athleta has a pair in linen but they’re lower rise.
    The ones I like most are Jesse Kamm but $395...too $$$ for my needs. If anyone sees this please report back!

    1. Madewell had a style that was very very similar to the Kamm pants, but I don't know what the style was called.
      A lot of people on IG have said the Kamm pants are "not worth it" for various's a blogger who really loves them and people in the comments chimed in about sizing (I've heard they run almost a full size small).

    2. Ugh I lost a post...
      I’ve tried both madewell Langford (old style, ok) and newer Emmett, which didn’t work at all. And also several Everlane variations of similar which tend to be more flattering on me.
      I would not spent the $400 on Jesse Kamm but I like how the width/shape of the leg and rise is lengthening unlike the JCrew options I’ve tried which are cut wrong for my legs.
      I have read many many reviews of Kamm pants from every blogger/influencer I can find. I think they’d work well on me so I check resale but they’re still an investment.

  2. too many exceptions to promos. too many exceptions to cardholder discount.

  3. no Canadian promo. gee what a surprise. no orders for me...unfortunately.
