Today I am sharing one of my new favorite brands. They are located in Nashville and have some lovely pieces, including this denim jacket. This is my favorite jean jack I have ever owned. It is super soft denim with slight stretch. I love that this jacket has a slightly dropped shoulder and hits at the hips. There is slight distressing but not too much. Mine is the original wash in size Small, this is tts. I would size up if you are looking to wear bulky layers under.
Quote from their website:
“ABLE is an ethical fashion brand that employs and empowers women as a solution to end poverty. We’re deeply devoted to quality – both in the products we make and the quality of life we aim to provide. We invest in, train, and educate women so they can earn a living, break the cycle of poverty, and thrive.”
Able is ultra-transparent in that they publish their lowest wages online! This is truly admirable and a rarity to find in the fashion industry.
In addition to fair occupational standards, able has environmental initiatives as well, below are some.
Shipping & Packaging: They aim to have 100% recyclable shipping and packaging materials in 2022.
Leather: One of their main resources for leather uses a 100% recycled water, closed process system, to keep the environment safe. Seeking partnership with industry innovators who are working to create plant-based leather alternatives with low environmental impact.
