You readers know by now, or can probably imagine, my delight when I opened this e-mail from the Imogene + Willie peeps, telling me they finally listened to me and created my very own custom made jeans! YAY!!
Little does it matter, that they did not actually create them because of me (read about this further down), but I know that in one way or the other I did have some kind of influence.
Every time I talked to these people, I stressed out the importance of also producing a raw denim pure 100%cotton jean for us women. I know these are not the most commercial kind of jeans, but I also know that there are lots of women out there who think and feel like me. I don’t need to resort to men’s jeans anymore, now there is Imogene’s Clarke. THANK YOU, Imogene + Willie!
About these jeans:
- This fit is named after Matt and Carrie’s precious niece, Clarke. Clarke, as a little girl – and now blossoming teenager – has always been very particular about what she wants. It runs in her genes, bless her heart. Her keen sense to detail and how things fit mirror why we took a lot of time developing this new jean style. It had to be just right… just like sweet Clarke.
Clarke was co-created by Carrie and Susie Crippen – friend, soul sister, mentor and co-founder of J Brand. Carrie and Susie wanted to create a jean together that was what they wanted to wear. Not just today, but yesterday and tomorrow as well.
Clarke is your new best friend. She is that new silhouette… skinny, slouchy, sexy and cropped. It is the new skinny. This is the jean you need right this minute. –
