30 May Meet the Overalls You’re Going to Think About All Day
If what the ethical fashion movement needs to succeed are more options that stand out for their style – rather than their sustainable or socially-responsible selling points – Good Apparel is leading by example. Case in point: a pair of slim-fit, flare leg white overalls made to skim your hips in organic cotton denim.
First debuting this spring, each piece in the house collection from Massachusetts-based ethical apparel production facility Good Clothing Company impresses with an aesthetic that’s one part crisp Cape Cod resort wear mixed with a healthy dose of downtown cool girl edge.
Along with those 70’s chic overalls it’s hard to stop thinking about, continue to peruse the core collection for ridiculously comfortable looking wide-legged pants, an of-the-moment cropped tee and classics that include a summer-friendly linen tunic and versatile black jumpsuit made of tencel that’s a match for even the trickiest day-to-night wardrobe challenges.
With founder Kathryn Hilderbrand’s three decades in the industry as a master tailor, it’s no surprise that the brand’s limited edition offerings place a premium on fit and function. Thoughtful details such as a thigh-high side slit that brings unexpected flair to the full length and long sleeves of a linen tunic and contrasting bands around a tee’s sleeves elevate basics into subtle statement pieces, while the option to choose an inseam brings customers a level of customization that’s rarely available to online shoppers.
That pieces are made with such earth-conscious textiles as bamboo, tencel, hemp and organic cotton and produced in one of the company’s two New England production facilities where workers enjoy safe conditions and fare wages are gravy on top of this enticingly ethical apparel collection.
Want to know more and hear Kathryn’s journey from running her own tailoring shop to launching not one, but two production facilities and going on to release a collection of her own? Go behind-the-scenes and get to know Kathryn in EP 104 of the Spirit of 608 podcast.
