The crews appearing in the glossy pages of J. Crew catalogs are far from motley. The retailer is known for its preppy fashions, including jeans, khakis, and other basic (but pricey) items sold to young professionals through its catalogs, websites, and nearly 520 retail and factory stores across the US under the J. Crew, and Madewell banners. Madewell is a women's-only collection of hip, casual clothes. Outside of the US, the retailer also boasts 32 stores in Canada, London, Hong Kong, and Paris. The American retailer sourced about 98% of its merchandise from factories outside of the US in fiscal 2016 (ended January 30); 65% of which were sourced from China and Hong Kong.
