This SmAcKdOwN is pretty good. J Crew’s calf hair bracelet ($68) vs. Banana Republic caged bangle ($39.50) – I’ve tried both. They both have a hinge closure. JC version has a substantial weight to it. The BR version is lighter in weight.
Banana Republic caged bangle ($39.50) – The BR version, as I said, is definitely more lightweight than the J Crew version.
I like the calf hair pattern, the colors & the way its laid out. I prefer the four gold ‘cages’ on the J Crew version. The eight ‘cages’ don’t look bad on the BR version, but what stands out is the gold; not the print.
The J Crew calf hair bracelet was recent on waitlist with a ship date of February. It’s currently sold out, not available for purchase. It might pop back. If you prefer the Banana Republic caged bangle, use HOLIDAY for 30% off, bringing it to a net $27.65.
