Denim is an integral part of my wardrobe, and while I adore the distressed, broken-in feel of vintage or secondhand jeans, some occasions call for a more polished pair. When purchasing anything new, my number one rule is to buy from a brand with the absolute best quality that I can afford so I know it will last for as long as possible, and when it comes to denim for me that’s FRAME.
With jeans expertly designed to be both classic yet contemporary in the most figure-flattering cuts, I know I’ll be wearing them for years to come. The fact that all FRAME jeans are made in the U.S. is also really important to me, as I know the garments were made ethically under domestic labor laws and are #sweatshopfree. No pair of jeans are worth unfair working conditions and child labor. Period. Also, anything manufactured locally means avoiding the use of fossil fuels that would have been used in overseas transportation.
FRAME’s dedication to quality does come with a higher price tag, so if a full priced pair isn’t in your budget, wait for a sale! Or better yet, attend their seasonal samples sales if you’re in the LA area (that’s how I got this amazing striped overall-inspired set).
Side note: FRAME tops and dresses are not listed as U.S. made, just the denim.
