J.Crew Chief and American Express Invest in Warby Parker

Warby Parker, the hip purveyor of retro-style glasses, has solidified ties with two of its most prominent fans. Now the three-year-old startup can count Millard S. Drexler, the chief executive of J.Crew, and American Express as participants in its latest round of financing, which closed last month at $41.5 million. The two join an already expansive group of investors that includes General Catalyst Partners, Spark Capital, Tiger Global Management, Thrive Capital and Menlo Ventures.
