We all depend on J.Crew for their classic style and timeless designs. J.Crew gives us that traditional americana flair we crave. However there are a couple of brands out there that offer similar looks. Here’s a look at a couple of brands that also offer classic tailoring and one of a kind pieces.

Uniqlo

This Japanese brand truly features some of the best basics out there.

Their sweater selection, very similar to J.Crew is quite impressive.

Sweaters done in cotton, cashmere, and wool. Colors like mustard yellow, seafoam green and icy blue. The styles are truly classic. Choose from raditional turtlenecks, sleek V-Necks, and comfy cable knits.

Prices starting at $14.90.

Uniqlo’s dress shirt collection is pretty remarkable. Different styles like oxford, slim-fit and stretch. Fresh colors like dusty pink and slate grey to striped patterns and checkered classics.

Uniqlo has a wide variety of casual shirts as well. Vintage looking denim and corduroy shirts with a perfect fit. Also check out their array of beautiful plaids and flannels.

One thing to be aware of, Uniqlo has a huge pants collection. Most Uniqlo pants are hemmed to your length. Allow time for hemming if you are shopping at Uniqlo.

GAP

Gap has been around since 1965 and has proven to be very reliable over the years.

A major draw with GAP is their Denim collection. They have a variety of styles ranging from straight leg to bootcut. GAP promotes that classic american jean.

These jeans truly are long-lasting and are on the same level as J.Crew. Prices starting at $35.00 and there are always plenty of online sales.
Not to mention the iconic jean jackets, choose from Sherpa collared, acid washed and traditional

Gap’s outerwear has stepped up its game. Sleek trench coats, classic peacoats and fresh teddy coats are only a few options GAP offers.

Like J.Crew, GAP features a great children’s collection too. Sizes ranging from infant to adult. You’ll find adorable khakis for the little ones, cute smock tops for girls, and trendy polos for boys.

Banana Republic

A sister brand of GAP, Banana Republic offers contemporary styles that are very versatile.

Banana Republic is on the verge of formal. Leaning towards the fancier side of J.Crew.

At Banana Republic, women can find some amazing dresses. Dresses you could wear to a wedding or skip on to grab a cocktail after work. A variety of styles in patterns like floral and lace. Shift dresses and Fit and Flair are perfect for the office or change things up with their impressive collection of unique jumpsuits.

Men can look forward to plethora of blazers, and suits. Banana Republic’s fit is pretty spot on. Gorgeous textures in velvet and rich Italian wool. Easy to pair a suit together or mix a blazer with a handsome pair of jeans.

Another perk of Banana Republic is their shoe selection.

For men, staples include trendy suede work boots or formal leather sneakers to dress down a suit. You can also opt for a fancy pair of Italian leather oxfords or a comfy high lace up hiking boot.

Women have options like an over the knee suede boots,  silver patent leather oxfords,  striking leopard heel, or a faux fur velvet loafer in magenta.

Scotch and Soda

A Dutch company founded in 1985, with locations across the US.

Scotch and Soda tends to be a little trendier than J.Crew but also offers high quality clothing at a similar price point. These pieces definitely make a statement.

Scotch and Soda prints are superior. Women’s tops feature silk star zip ups and embroidered ruffle tops. Vintage looking wrap blouses and cargo shirts will make an impression as you enter the room.

The Men’s shirt department has pieces like the denim work shirt and casual Hawaiian. Men’s styles range from Chinos in a variety of styles and colors to beautifully pleated wool trousers. Stylishly striped corduroys and oversized cargo pants will amp up your everyday wardrobe.

Women’s styles featuring embroidered corduroys and leather paneled trousers paired with Western buckle trousers and Kick Flare Jersey pants.

Scotch and Soda has a eclectic group of accessories including fun belts, colorful hats and quirky pins.

Scotch and Soda locations are growing, I have found their online catalog is great. A quick way to find deals on these one of a kind pieces.

J.Crew Choices

While we still crave the authentic pieces J.Crew has to offer. It’s good to know there are other options out there. Amazing basics at Uniqlo, trendy statements at Scotch and Soda and fancy formals at Banana Republic, and timeless denim at the GAP. Mix and match your wardrobe and always keep it classic.
