#2 Are J Brand Jeans True to Size?

The answer to this question is, sometimes. It’s advised to either choose your usual size or go down a size when it comes to J Brand jeans. We suggest ordering both sizes and trying them on at home just to be sure.

#3 How to Wash J Brand Jeans?

We’re all guilty of over washing our jeans and J Brand is quite the advocate of putting this habit to bed. Not only will it help the environment but it will also maintain the quality of your denim. When you wash denim it breaks down the fibres in the garment which in turn reduces the overall stiffness, not washing your jeans too often also helps to preserve the colour. Instead of washing your jeans, J Brand suggest popping them into a pillow case and into the freezer overnight. This will give your jeans a refresher, kill all germs and act as a quick wash. Do this as often as you find necessary. However, if you find yourself covered in ketchup, a quick spin in the washing machine may be unavoidable!

#4 Where are J Brand Jeans Made?

Almost every pair of J Brand Jeans is made in their downtown LA headquarters, USA.

#5 Are J Brand Jeans Sustainable?

In 2018 J Brand kick started their efforts to become more sustainable. Demonstrating their conscious effort to make more sustainable choices when it comes to the overall production of their products, the brand launched their first ever 10-piece sustainable collection launching in A/W18. The selection of denim was designed and produced with a reduction in waste, chemicals and water usage as priority. Since this the brand has gone on to implement further sustainable strategies such as using recycled cotton, botanical polyesters and biodegradable Tencel fibres. As well as sustainably sourcing the finer details such as buttons, zippers, recycled paper for hang tags and threads.
