Tailorless Flared Jeans
Seven For All Mankind is introducing its Tailorless line for fall and holiday seasons. The line is designed to allow women of every height to reduce or eliminate the need to have their flares hemmed. The industry standard for inseams for a flare is 35 inches meant for a woman who is 5′-9″! The average American woman is between 5′-4″ and 5′-5″ and “petite” jeans designed for women 5′-3″ and below, so the majority (about 90%) of women in the U.S. are currently unable to buy flared jeans that don’t require tailoring. These jeans will flare at the right spot. The new line will be available for fall in August and will range from $189 to $215.
