I’m going to make this short and sweet since I’ve waxed poetic OVER AND OVER AND OVER again about my love for James Perse here. I do think it bears repeating though, that no, James Perse isn’t “technically” an ethical or sustainable brand (on par with other brands that I tend to wear/feature), although they do produce as much as possible in the US. But IMO, part of being sustainable and more responsible in our consumption habits (and maybe one of the most important ways?) is choosing items that work for your body/lifestyle, and that are made to stand the demands of multi-year wears and washes so they STAY in your closet.
After more than a decade of wearing James Perse I can absolutely vouch for the brand’s longevity and the garments’ extremely high quality. That is why I continue to wear and buy James Perse.
My very favorite JP pieces are the dresses and t-shirts, but I’ve had great experiences with some pants as well. Here are some of my favorites from the new spring collection, with free shipping on orders over $150 using code VIPSPRING19. Oh, I did try and order the canvas linen jumpsuit to review for you, but they sold out in my size pretty quickly…
Linen tee dress | $195
V Neck Skinny Dress | $225
