J.Crew is good to their staff. We've heard tales from the inside about free all-you-can-eat-ice-cream day in the cafeteria and very generous employee discounts. However, every now and then something so special comes along that even the kindest of companies have to prioritize who they work for — the general public — over who works for them. We hear that employees are banned from using their discounts on Alexa Chung's new Madewell line, which just went up for sale online. Of course they could probably find a way around it, and sneak into the store as a plebeian and buy it full price, but all special employee shopping privileges for this collection are off. Since it's such a hot commodity, if you had your eye on any of it you might want to swoop in soon, like the bat on Alexa's shirt that says "HELLO." How can you resist the "HELLO" bat? It's perfect for anyone going to Fashion Week who wants to wear their mood (you know, batty) across their chest.

Update: A source tells us J.Crew employees are banned from buying the line at all. Oh well — at least they have ice-cream day.
