Banana Republic's launched a new denim collection to match their shiny new Broadway flagship. The jeans range from classic dark skinnies to pre-wrinkled slouchy boyfriends. There's a 70s looking lightweight cut with a slight flare that hits a little higher than usual, and made my legs look significantly longer. They've included an easy boot cut and a slouchy skinny that should be avoided if you're less than 5'10''. They range from $89 to $99 which is slightly more than the Madewells and Gaps I've been favoring of late, but they're significantly softer. Denim this soft - I took home the boyfriends - usually comes with a $200 price tag. Before I left I had to sign this Notice and Disclosure agreement:
"You acknowledge that you attended Banana Republic's denim event and received a free pair of denim. If you choose to write a review of the denim, in consideration of the free denim you recieved, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknolwedged, you agree that you will comply with the following:
- You will clearly and conspicuously disclose the receipt of the free denim from Banana Republic; and
- Your comments in your review will not only include honest expressions of your personal opinions, findings, beliefs or experiences about the denim and will not include any claims about the denim.
You agree that if you fail to comply with these obligations, you will modify or remove your review of denim immediately upon request by Banana Republic." Hope this takes care of all that.
