Jeans that fit are jeans that last

by Charline Catteeuw

As continually consuming beings, we are conditioned to believe that we need to follow the “latest high-street trends” in order to stay in the know of what’s hot and what’s not. The good news; at Les Basics, we are advocates of a slow lifestyle; a rejection to all things fast. We pride ourselves on slowing down, taking time to create pieces that reflect our values, beliefs and not to mention what’s best for the place we call home - our bodies.


The saying goes, ‘Jeans that fit are jeans that last – but the question on everybody’s lips, how do I find jeans that fit? Well, here at Les Basics we’re not just talking S, M, L.. We are talking about finding jeans that “fit” or, that align with your beliefs, morals and lifestyle. We believe in minimal capsule pieces (you know, those basics that scream comfort), and pride ourselves on being sustainable not only through sourcing the right materials but taking care of our beautiful craftsmen, too.

What we believe.

We believe in opting for an investment piece and choose quality over quantity - Rest assured that one pair of quality jeans will last a lifetime. Not only are you investing in yourself, you are empowering and supporting the brand and those very hands that curated your timeless jeans.

Basics are not only meant to last, but they are to be the masterpiece of your everyday wardrobe, that’s why we understand being happy in what you’re wearing is paramount. After all, happy girls are the prettiest. 


Denim industry.

Did you know, over 1.2 billion pairs of jeans are purchased each year, and in 2015 alone the fashion industry produced 92 million tons of waste from this same production! The saddest part? It would take on average 12 years to “recycle” what the fast fashion industry creates in just 48 hours. That’s why we encourage our customers to adopt a trans-seasonal approach when it comes to buying their jeans. In other words, don’t change your jeans as frequently as the seasons; make the seasons suit you.. and this will allow for a more sustainable wardrobe, adjusting your style to cater for every season is a great way to adopt a slower fashion lifestyle. 


The ''Perfect'' fit.

As it appears, finding the perfect “fit” can be easier than you thought; the key things to remember, the jeans will always fit you, in every sense of the word... your physique, your personality, your beliefs and your lifestyle. Don’t follow the trend, do the right thing, buy your basics sustainably and make your purchase with peace of mind. Support the slow fashion movement and it will not only benefit those hands that make your clothes, it will allow for a healthier, more conscious lifestyle.

Choose happy, not a size.
