I feel like J.Crew Factory has slipped into the shadows this year. It's hard to remember to go look and shop the factory when the regular store has so many sales (has anyone noticed there are 5x the amount of sales compared to last year). I can't buy items from the regular store until they are on sale AND I wait until they have an extra percentage off. The great news about the J.Crew Factory is that they almost always have the clothes on sale and the prices are already reasonable. The things I would stay away from at the factory and spend the money on at the regular store: Jeans and Minnie Pants.
