J.CREW

J.Crew debuted in 1983 with the mailing of its first catalog. Six years later, the company opened a flagship store at New York’s South Street Seaport. Today, the business includes retail stores, the ever-growing website, jcrew.com and catalog business. In 2003, Millard “Mickey” Drexler joined J.Crew as Chairman and CEO, pushing service, quality and innovation to the next level. The company partners with the finest global fabric mills and craftsmen—as well as with iconic brands such as Alden, Timex, Thomas Mason and Barbour (to name just a few). J.Crew has also introduced several line extensions, including crewcuts (for kids sizes 2–14), J.Crew Weddings & Parties and J.Crew Collection (featuring exclusive and limited-edition pieces with couture-level details). J.Crew continues its retail expansion with a series of new specialty boutiques. Four men’s-only stores in downtown Manhattan—The Liquor Store, the Ludlow Shop and 2 J.Crew Men’s Shops—are each filled with a curated selection of J.Crew must-haves, limited-edition items, vintage finds and a suiting shop. No. 1035 is the exclusive Madison Avenue women’s shop dedicated to the Collection label plus one-of-a-kind products. In addition, a crewcuts store opened on Madison Avenue and a dedicated jewelry and accessories shop was added to the Prince Street store. In 2006, the company introduced Madewell, a modern-day interpretation of an American denim label founded in 1937. Madewell has a flagship store in New York City and 65 other stores nationwide. Summer 2010 brought the launch of Madewell’s much anticipated commerce site, madewell.com. In March 2012, Jcrew.com launched in over 100 countries and opened the company's first stores outside of North America in London in November 2013.
