J.Crew began in 1983, when the first catalog was launched. Since then, the business has expanded to that of an iconic American brand known worldwide for its sophisticated, fun clothing and accessories to live, work, and play in. The first J.Crew store opened in 1989 at the South Street Seaport in New York City. Since then, J.Crew has expanded to hundreds of specialty retail and over 150 outlet stores across the world, with a robust online business and new stores opening regularly. In 2006, the J.Crew Group launched Madewell, which quickly became a go-to brand for effortlessly cool styles for gals and guys alike. J.Crew has set the industry standard for quality, design, and style by sourcing fine fabrics from top-notch domestic and international mills. We create signature pieces—from Italian cashmere sweaters, to Japanese seersucker suits, to our famous broken-in chinos—that will find a forever home in your wardrobe.

Crafted from the finest fibers, cast in custom- developed colors and knit into timeless silhouettes — our cashmere is made to last for decades, and it is our hope that these heritage items will be passed down one day. Because cashmere is so important to J.Crew, we’re making every effort to build a transparent, responsible, and sustainable cashmere supply chain, from farm to factory. Cashmere comes from the soft underhair of cashmere goats. At J.Crew, our cashmere comes from over 1,000 farms in Inner Mongolia, which are all certified to The Good Cashmere Standard® — an independent standard that aims to improve the welfare of cashmere goats, the lives of farmers and farming communities, and the environment in which they live. J.Crew was the first U.S. member of this organization and the first U.S. retailer to commit to certifying all cashmere sweaters to its standard. We also give back to the cashmere community. In 2019, we were the first U.S.- based company to join the Sustainable Fibre Alliance (SFA). In 2020, we partnered with the SFA to launch a Women’s Empowerment Program – now in its fourth year – to support nearly 1,000 female herders and their households in Mongolia by providing education, training, and financial incentives to increase their economic returns. Once the farmers have the cashmere hairs, it is transported to a local dehairing plant, which cleans and processes the cashmere so it is ready to be spun into the luxurious yarns that make our products. Our dehairing plants are also members of The Good Cashmere Standard and serve as the main point of connection to our farming communities. The dehaired cashmere then travels to our spinning mills, where it is spun into the yarns that are eventually knit into our sweaters. We’ve worked with our mills for over 20 years and view them as true partners in driving transparent and sustainable sourcing throughout our supply chain. For example, these partners will also participate in our climate and water stewardship projects to ensure that these impacts are managed at the mill-level.
