Loomstate Mantra Jeans
The Right Fit
I fell in love with Loomstate jeans the minute I put on my first pair -- their skinny leg Flux jean was a perfect fit and so flattering (not to mention the high quality organic denim and gorgeous wash). So I was pretty sure I'd love the second pair -- their straight leg Genesis jean. I did--for the same reasons. Now I'm loving a third pair -- Loomstate's low-rise, bootleg Mantra jean. Still sweet. Still spectacular.
The Mantra's low-rise waist isn't too low but hits right at the hips for a comfortable fit. Since I'm not very hippy and have an extraordinarily high waist, this cut works really well for me. The pants have enough stretch that they fit well through the hips, but don't bind at the waistband (or anywhere else.) I feel fancy when I wear them, but also like I could run for my life if I had to. Which is my way of saying that these pants look fantastic and they're comfortable. I normally prefer straight and skinny-leg jeans, but the Mantra's subtle boot-cut leg looks great.
Like all Loomstate jeans, the Mantra jeans (I actually wear-tested off-white colored Mantra cords; the pants are available in denim and in various colors of corduroy), have a clean, elegant design that people always notice whenever I wear them. I've never owned a brand of clothing that has received so many compliments and inquiries. I love the trademark "Nature Calls" label stitched onto the inside of the fly and the purple polka-dotted white cotton used for the inside pockets. Most of all, I love the feel of the soft organic cotton.
I've never really been very fashion-oriented. Men's jeans and cheap t-shirts were the staples of my wardrobe. But now that I've found the perfect fit with Loomstate, I'll never go back. It's an added bonus that Loomstate's fashions are all organic.
Note on sizing: I'm normally a size 10 in women's pants, and I often wear men's pants to get the length and lower rise I like. I'm a size 30 in Loomstate; the length seems to be somewhere between 33" and 34".)
Price: $140-179, (depending on wash and sales)
