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. Everlane has their big sale going on now, but I’ve mostly struck out there over the past few months. My daughter liked the turtleneck sweatshirt and a pair of mesh lug sole ankle boots. I had ordered new wide leg pleated pants on Nov 11 when they had a 20 percent off sale and finally got them this Monday. They are really nice but run big and the length was a little bit short for heels/platforms. Totally in right now as that pleated baggy style is everywhere but a little trickier to style than a cleaner front black pant so back they went. They do have a few nice sweaters on sale but most are so boxy I just can’t take the chance.

    1. I've stopped looking at Everlane entirely. I tried a few things in 2018 & 2019, and ended up returning everything I got. I don't think I have the right body type for any of their tops... and bottoms.

    2. I had loved a few things I got from there but then put on a few Covid lbs and hated it all. Gave everything to my girls. Now I’ve lost the weight but don’t want it back.
      I do have a few sweaters I still like from previous seasons, but none of the current cuts excite me and I find alpaca uncomfortably itchy.
