The quality of clothing at Ann Taylor loft and J. Crew?
I'm at that not a college student but still at a young adult faze and need to update what I'm wearing. I've been, I guess pre-shopping and seeing whats out there. Honestly the last couple of years I have had hardly any time to spend that didn't involve running my business. Now I had been saving and want to get pretty much everything new and matching. What is the quality, and lasting ability of these mall brands? These two are one of the few that at least offer my sizing online so I'm kind of limited to what stores I can buy from. I've never had a good experience with having clothing tailored to my liking. So don't want to deal with that and just want off the rack stuff.

Honestly most of my stuff is from my high school years or work out style clothing like stretch pants and track jackets. It's time for a change

Gee, you went through high school and never learned good enough English grammar. I bet you're not college material...

^LOL!! anyways i used to really like J Crew but the last pair of pants I bought there was not all that great. The zipper broke after like 3 washings. But i also have a favorite sweatshirt from there that i absolutely love, it is my go-to sweatshirt when i need a hoodie.

J Crew clothing is ok. My teenage sons wear it a lot. I think the pants and shorts wash better than the shirts, which sometimes come out of the dryer a wrinkled mess.

Do not, however, waste your money at a J Crew outlet. That stuff is inferior quality to the store merchandise, and shrinks badly.

J. Crew looks nice, but there seems to be quality issues. I've had several of their tops and they seem to fade more quickly than normal. One sweater I have had threads coming unraveled after the first couple washings that I had to have repaired. I was really disappointed.

How RUDE
She wasn't asking about her grammar
If you want to critize someone look in the mirror first
If you read her post..she clearly stated she wants info on certain clothes brands
your comment was RUDE
I BET YOUR JUST AN ^$$

The Limited is not a bad option either. I haven't bought anything from there in a while due to the fact that I do not need anymore clothes (closet is stuffed).

I haven't had any issues with clothes I've bought at the J. Crew outlet.
