About

The Idea

There is a problem with women's jeans, with women's clothing in general, that has yet to be addressed by large fashion retailers. 

Namely, pockets. 

How frustrating is it to find the perfect pair of jeans only to realize the pockets are so tiny you can barely fit a single key in them? Or that the pockets are entirely fake? 

Seriously, who decided to have fake pockets was a good idea?  

Our Story  

After seeing thousands upon thousands of complaints about this one problem, we were in almost disbelief that it hadn't been properly addressed yet. So we set out to fix it ourselves. 

Clementine Jeans was born. 

A simple idea, that fashionable doesn't have to mean impractical. We've all seen the arguments. Just buy men's jeans! Or buy cargo pants! Why do you need to sacrifice having stylish jeans to have pockets that could hold even just a phone? 

With Clementine, you don't.  

Functional Doesn't Have to Sacrifice on Style
Functional Doesn't Have to Sacrifice on Style

The biggest two arguments we faced were that:  

1) Women don't need pockets because they have bags.

Who wants to carry a bag absolutely 100% of the time? Of course there are a lot of times where it's fine to bring one, but it's also about having that choice. Sometimes all you need is a phone and a wallet. Or maybe you're going out somewhere that you'll need to worry about losing your bag. 

And maybe the reason women always have bags is that they have nowhere else to put anything...

2) Pockets will look bad and bulky. 

The issue of looking bulky was something we did want to truly deal with. We wanted our jeans to be functional while having zero sacrifices on how good they look. We went at this two ways. 

The first was by bringing the pockets towards the front of the thigh, rather than to the sides, the result being that anything in the pockets won't be sticking out the side of your hip. 

Second, is by making our first skinny jeans out of high-quality stretch denim. Because the denim holds tight to your form, it minimises any bulkiness from what's actually in your pocket, and also snaps down and lays perfectly flat when not in use.  

 Pockets don't look bulky while in use!

Made in Canada

Once we had our basic idea mapped out, it came time to put everything together into something people could wear for years. The result was better than we even hoped of achieving at first. 

When we set out to make these jeans, we wanted to do it right. The way clothing should be produced. Ethically, and high-quality. 

We tested and sampled fabric after fabric before we settled on the one we chose. A high-quality tri-blend stretch denim that looks fantastic, and is incredibly comfortable. Even the lining of our pockets, usually an afterthought, is made from a cotton-polyester blend fabric that was originally meant for high-end dress clothes!

After the materials had been sourced, and the designs finalized, it came down to production. From the beginning, we wanted to keep it somewhere local. And after reaching out to every factory we could find, we finally settled on one in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Our Vision  

At Clementine, we aim to ethically and responsibly produce high-quality jeans and other clothing that are, at the same time: comfortable, great looking and practical. 

Our goal is to provide to women what other companies refuse to. Our jeans will only be the first creation of our line. 

We have plans for dresses with pockets, skirts with pockets, different shirt designs made for different body types, and wallets that are small enough to actually fit in a pocket, just to name a few. We welcome any and all input on what products we should create.

Sizing Options  

Another thing we wanted to make sure of is that our sizing would be inclusive. Clementine Jeans Co. proudly produces jeans from a size 27 waist to a size 42 waist! Approx: size 2 to size 22. Inclusive sizing will be a cornerstone of all our future products.

For the more petite, we are currently working on jeans with a shorter leg! But for now, the smaller sizes will fit well, they may just need a slight hem for the length.  

***Sizing Chart with instructions on how to pick your perfect size will be emailed to all our backers after the campaign has ended.***

Fits

All jeans are currently skinny fit, and available from size 27 to 42. Sizes 37-42 are shaped differently to fit those sizes perfectly. More fits will be added to the Kickstarter if we reach our stretch goal!

Colour Options

Navy With Contrast Stitching (Skinny Fit)  

A classic combination that looks good enough to stand out, but goes with almost anything you wear.

Charcoal Grey (Skinny Fit)

Rather than go with pitch black, which will eventually fade no matter what fabric is used, we went with a deep charcoal grey that looks fantastic with any colour top, (even black!), and will still look great after long-term use.

Our Commitment

Our Company is based on what people want and need. 

At Clementine, we believe that the you, the customer, should be in charge of what is being produced, or not produced. After all, you're the most important part, the ones who are going to be wearing the clothing, and be making the difference success and a failure. 

All of our product ideas come from problems women have told us about. Our commitment is that every product will solve a problem that you actually have. Lack of function, a certain fit or size that is hard to find, we welcome any and all of you to tell us what it is you have a hard time finding, and we will create it for you! 

Chances are, if there's a clothing issue you have, others have it to. We will be the company that solves those problems!

Our Guarantee  

We are completely confident that you are going to love your new jeans, but there's always a chance the one you first order isn't the perfect fit. If you need a different size, send them back, and we will send you a brand new pair in a different size!

How can you help

This is where you come in. We have everything ready for production, but to meet the minimum order quantity to get these jeans into production, we need your help!  

Risks and challenges

We have everything sourced and ready for production, but after the Kickstarter is complete, we will need to order larger quantities of all of our materials before we start the manufacturing process. Manufacturing itself should only take 2-4 weeks depending on the order quantity, but there is always a potential for shipping delays beforehand. We will make sure all of our backers are with us every step of the way, and know what stage we're at with production.
