It's been a rough couple of years for retail brands. From Toys R Us folding to Sears' bankruptcy, and thousands of others in between, it's not surprising to hear about additional brands being added to the list of companies that aren't quite cutting it. A few days ago, Vox reported that J.Crew will be shutting down its Mercantile and Nevereven brands. The latter launched only a couple of weeks ago, and J.Crew had just entered a partnership with Amazon to sell its Mercantile line back in September.

If you've been eying the Mercantile collection, don't fret. While the line may be going away for good, today Amazon is offering 50% off almost 200 Mercantile items. The line is meant to make J.Crew quality affordable, since the store isn't exactly known for having bottom-line prices. Today's sale gets you the best of both worlds.

Bundle up, buttercup: Long Puffer Coat

Slim, not skintight: Straight Fit Jeans

Bulky jeans aren't exactly fashionable, but not everyone wants to wear the ultra-tight skinnies that are dominating the world of denim. These straight fit jeans come in several different washes, and they're narrow enough to look modern without cutting off your circulation.

From $27 at Amazon
