J Crew

I am not sure if this has been announced or not, but I just received this 
letter from J. Crew clothing today.

December 30, 1996

Thank you for your expression of concern regarding commerce with 
Myanmar.  Prompted by you and others, we are ceasing entirely our 
purchases from Myanmar subsequent to April 1997.

We want you to know that we have done business in Myanmar in the belief 
that as in other dictatorial countries (the USSR, Yugoslavia, etc, etc.) 
commerce with the free world, though encouraged by the regime, would be 
one factor in ultimately ending the regime.  The strength of the feeling 
that you and others express leads us to feel, however, that it is not 
suitable for us to continue in Myanmar at this time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer 
relations department at 1-800-932-0043.  We appreciate your comments and 
look forward to serving you in the future.
