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. I purchased BR's Mid-rise Skinny chino two weeks ago when it was on sale. The material is sturdy and the fit is good. Since I haven't worn it yet, I can't say whether or not it stretches out. I purchased the classic camel color. I'll probably buy another backup pair when the price drops again. Item number is 669126. It kinda reminds me of J.Crew's Andie chino.

  2. Wide leg velour sweats at Loft are down to $9. Like these for around the house wear, length is good for me at 5'7".

    1. Omg I’m going to look. I know you said to Size down, have you checked the size chart? I wonder how close it is to correct.

    2. XS would probably fit you like S fits me - very roomy but they stay on fine with my wide hips. They fit about like the BR sequin pants. Sure you could do xxs as well. They actually reach my feet because of the loose fit.

    3. Ugh. Shipping is $9 and they’re coming up only 50 percent off for me, plus final sale. $10 is not terrible but I can’t do free ship to store, :(.

  3. I am also loving my banana republic High rise wide leg pants, Wore them again for a client meeting where I like to look presentable but need to move/bend etc to take measurements. Item number 425617.
    I’m keeping my eyes out for similar cuts from BR.
