Lyons and Drexler were credited with making J.Crew a mainstay in the American shopping scene. Yet in recent years, the preppy apparel maker has struggled to get shoppers to pay up for its styles. J.Crew is often criticized for its lofty price tags when similar styles can be found elsewhere for less.
The chain is one of many retailers struggling with a high debt load tied to a leveraged buyout. TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners purchased the retailer for $3 billion in 2011. At the end of fiscal 2016, J. Crew has nearly $1.5 billion in long-term debt.
