Brand I like: Denimist

15

I’ve become increasingly smitten with this newish line—the vibe is very American and casual; like Nili Lotan but less pricey (though still not cheap) and more laid-back. Right now I’m dying for this blue camo jacket, which also comes in a very cute pink colorway.

This button front shirt is heavy enough to wear on cool summer evenings as a jacket; it also comes in a very good red striped print.

These 70s-style carpenter pants are pretty unexpected in baby blue.

A western-style jumpsuit that I could see wearing nonstop come fall.

Here’s a long-sleeved striped tee—black and white, which is so versatile and a little punk rock—and it’s currently marked down.

A pair of simple mid-rise skinny jeans with a nice clean wash is not so easy to come across these days.

And how fun are these poppy yellow straight-leg jeans?

    While I am not a jumpsuit person. I really, really want that jumpsuit. I used to have a much-loved JCrew denim shirt that was a dead ringer for the top portion. The shirt disappeared in a clean-out or a move. Does anyone else have favorite clothing items evaporate? For me, it happens way too much.

      Ha! I was thinking about this the other day––I’m missing a favorite scarf and a vintage dress that I LOVED. I have no idea where they are, but I miss them both.

    It’s unfortunate that clothing companies still ignore so many women in this country by not making clothing in their size. and that we as consumers are fine with that. Their largest size is equivalent to a 12 based on their size chart and the average woman in the US is 14/16. Also, a quick scan of their website looks like they feature only white models. The lack of diversity is sad.

      that’s the first thing i thought of…and i’m a size 8, but these clothes look like they’re for women w/the body of a 15 year old rather than those w/real bodies.

        I checked the sizing on that striped T, as I was about to pull the trigger on buying it…bust measurement for a Large is 35″. That’s VERY small. Oh, well *shrugs*

        Still considering that jacket! The pink one is $100 off!

          I mean, the other option would be to not financially support companies that are doing this and to purchase from companies that don’t only want to cater to white, extremely slim women.

          And the bust measurement for size medium for the tee is just 32.8 inches, which is really small for a typical U.S. medium. Oh well.

      There’s an issue of some designers only wanting their work seen on “beautiful people” so they stop at a certain size. It’s a really dumb financial decision in my opinion.

    Oh dear, another stripe tee I want. Also, there’s a distressed white cowboy shirt which I couldn’t wear in Texas (because folks would stop me and tell me where I could get a new one)––it looks soooooo comfortable and not too thick. Love the “patch” pocket on the camo jacket––a good one for airline travel––if anyone gets to travel safely by plane ever again.

      Regional differences are so interesting. Do strangers in Texas really do that? It’s almost kind of cool in a way – do the people who do it mean well?

        I was only being slightly sarcastic. MANY people in Texas take the wearing of what might be called “Western Clothing” very seriously. My brother does not leave the house without his hat (as in cowboy hat), I’ve never seen my nephew wearing anything on his feet other than cowboy boots and my second cousin talks like he’s never traveled fifty feet outside his ranch and dresses as if he just walked off the set of a John Wayne movie (he has a graduate degree in Engineering from Texas A&M so he isn’t completely unworldly). So, yes, particularly in the smaller towns people would be “concerned” that I was wearing such damaged clothing. If you are a glass half full sort of person I suppose you could think of this as charming.(sigh)

          It’s funny bc I also kind of dislike brand new “distressed” clothing (but I might not notice if someone had the “self-distressed” type unless it was pretty far-gone). Although, I am also trying to work on being less judge-y. Ha! Well overdue I am sure. … Can these people in small towns tell the difference – or do they just see a hole in someone’s pants? What a fascinating world it is! Plus, I sort of have a yen for cowboy boots, and I wish the hats looked good on me but alas they do not. However, I would probably be annoyed too. I dress pretty badly but no one ever says anything here. I should try to do better really. I didn’t like shopping *before.*

            Oh also … is this weird? I like those Farmers Only ads. I haven’t bitten yet though.
