Hey My Lovely Tall Ladies!
Hey my lovely tall ladies! My name is Whitney Coyour and I am the founder and owner of L Jean USA. We are in the process of creating Tre’ Classic slack designs made specifically for tall women, 5”10 and above.
Initially I wanted to start our blog with an elaborate piece, but have decided to write from my heart and let you know why I have decided to start out on this journey.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking, “blah, blah, blah”, but let me finish. This is not going to be a post about how my life was a total disaster because I couldn’t find slacks growing up and how my confidence suffered as a result. Or, that I got teased because I had on high waters one day (LOL!! That made me chuckle!! Do they even call them high waters anymore?) Ok, not at all, that’s is not what this post is about. But, let me start by saying, yes, I am six feet tall and I do have issues with the rise, fit, and inseam lengths of ready to wear clothing at the mall. Most importantly though, through my research, I realized I have tall sisters all over the world that have the same problem, but that is not the only reason I am starting the brand.
As I brainstormed ideas for this post, I started thinking about how my line fits into this genre of clothing for tall women. I realized, at L Jean USA, we do not do ALL clothing, we do slacks, trendy, classic slacks or “Tre’ Classic” as I like to call them. My mission is get it right with the fit, feel, and look, and have every tall woman in the world walking into her office, that meeting, or a night out with the girls, looking and feeling amazing! Ladies, throw on a pair of heels (yes tall women – rock them heels) and a fabulous blouse, showing up and showing out, for all to see (even though we really can’t be missed – LOVE THAT about us!!). And, why not? It’s been long enough that we have waited for trendy slacks that fit our bottoms, hips, and leg lengths the way they we want, and damn it, deserve!!
So, there it is, I am tall, a woman, and love looking good in what I wear. When I try on a pair of slacks, I want to feel like Emeril Lagasse, “BAM! Aww, yeah babe!!!”, and that is what I want for every tall woman in the world and that is why I am bringing these designs for my tall ladies to life. I want you to walk in the room and take that mug OVER! (Ok, I just got goosebumps!)
Ladies, “Live Above Average” is more than our tagline at L Jean USA, it is our way of life, and we encourage all women to “Live Above Average” in everything you do, starting with your slacks!!
Love y’all and talk to you soon!
