I would be careful about J. Crew. Just because they’re more expensive than Forever21 doesn’t mean it’s better quality. It’s still considered mid-level and still made in 3rd world countries (which might mean sweatshop construction) Their materials are usually a little nicer, though! I would wait for sales, obvi, when they sometimes have things for up to an additional 40% off. I would also keep your eyes open at thrift stores. I found a J. Crew cashmere turtleneck once for $17!!posted 10 months ago

I’m fiber artist. I make my own yarn, knit, weave, etc. My mom and sister sew. I’m also a vintage clothing collector and thrifter. I can tell good fabric quality and construction from crap. The incidence of crap is much higher at places like F21 than it is at J Crew. Sadly, BR is getting worse; too many synthetic materials are making it into the garments.
As far as the sales go, I’ve figured out at what time J. Crew updates their sale section, but my lips are sealed on that one!posted 10 months ago
Well, if you already have the top secret info on their sales and know all about thrifting, i don’t know what else to tell youposted 10 months ago
