A Movement To Reform Fashion
There is no evidence that J. Crew cancelled orders, delayed payments or asked for discounts from suppliers during the pandemic.
KEEP WORKERS SAFE
There’s no evidence that J. Crew made additional efforts to Keep Workers Safe during the pandemic, such as contributing to supply chain relief or signing onto the Severance Guarantee Fund.
J. Crew does not publish a list of its Tier 1 manufacturers, which is now the industry standard and is critical to hold brands accountable. The company has not signed The Transparency Pledge, which commits companies to publish detailed supplier information in the public domain on a regular basis. More than half of the companies we track publish a list of cut-and-sew factories, putting J. Crew behind the industry on transparency.
END STARVATION WAGES
J. Crew has not made clear, time bound commitments to pay its retail and factory workers a living wage. While the brand uses some Fair Trade factory production, it’s not clear how these wages compare to a living wage.
HELP PASS LAWS
J. Crew is part of a trade association, the AAFA, that lobbied heavily against California’s Garment Worker Protection Act, which aims to end wage theft in garment factories, earning it a “NO” in this category.
