Looking for a J. Crew time machine...

Can anyone recommend U.S.-based websites selling women's clothes like those from J. Crew circa 1993?

I'm probably revealing my hopeless fashion sense here, but I'd love to find an American website offering women's clothes for fall like the ones I used to buy from J. Crew in college.
Specifically: corduroy or heavy wool jumper dresses, cute wool minis, heavy (but not necessarily bulky) sweaters, cable knit tights to wear with boots, etc.
I used to find this stuff in spades back in the early 90s. Unfortunately, all the sites I am looking at now are either very ladylike (more delicate fabrics/cuts with girlie embellishments) or just too matronly (skirt lengths too long, cuts too boxy). I don't know if the sites I used to shop on have just rebranded, or if the stuff I'm seeking is just too far out of fashion - though it seems like it would be fairly timeless.
Sites I've tried without luck: J. Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta, Coldwater Creek, Garnet Hill, Woolrich, Boden.
In case it's relevant: I'm 5'9", about a size 12/14, with long legs and a short torso (though I don't wear any special sizes/cuts).
Any ideas? Thanks!
