J. Crew employees may have a swell employee discount, but they won't be able to use it on the brand-new much-coveted Alexa Chung for Madewell collection. The Cut reports: "We hear that employees are banned from using their discounts on Alexa Chung's new Madewell line, which just went up for sale online.
