I am actually saving this time since I tried on the J. Crew jacket in store and wasn’t blown away by the quality. What would you do?

I was eyeing that Forever 21 blazer the other day, but decided to add it to my wishlist instead of buying.
I think this is something that you would wear often and if it was some kind of material like wool or cashmere or something high maintenance, I would say splurge. Considering this is jersey, I think you would do fine with the F21 version. You could even buy a back up and still have some extra change in your pocket.
I agree. If it were something other than jersey, I would buy the J. Crew one. I tried it on and it wasn’t something I HAD to have, so I am going the chepo route.
Definitely save. Stripes are cool, but it’s a memorable piece and if you wore it every day (or a couple times a week) you might feel like you are in a uniform. And, at least in these photos, I like the cut and proportions of the F21 better.
Save. Rule #1: Be blown away by clothing item before you make a purchase!
(and they are VERY similar!)
Agreed! I bought the cheap version this morning!
This is a perfect example of when a pricey piece of clothing doesn’t pass the F21 test. I think the J. Crew was meh, and I didn’t much care for it. The F21 is actually a better fit, and much less expensive. Good choice! Can’t wait to see it show up in an OOTD.
Thanks for the tips on the F21 blazer – I hadn’t actually seen it before but have been ogling the J.Crew one for awhile now. Good to hear a few comments that it may not be as good as it seems (me not having a nearby store so I’m just going by online pics)
