Welcome back to “Show & Tell Your Denim!”
Read episode 1
In Episode 2 ilovejeans.com asks Canadian Ani Wells founder /owner of Simply Suzette a cool sustainable online platform that bridges the gap between the denim industry and us the consumers, what are her 3 all-time favourite denim pieces.
She definitely doesn’t disappoint as you’ll see in the video which jeans she chose to show us and why.
First I wanted to ask her a couple of questions as I always find it interesting which denim brand a denim expert starts off wearing in the early days. So I asked Ani what was her first pair of jeans she remembers loving and how did they make her feel…
“My first pair of jeans was when I was very young, but I remember wanting a pair of my first premium pair at age 11. I somehow was interested in the quality and couldn’t get enough! My first real pair of jeans at 11 years old, were a pair of 7 For All Mankind bootcut jeans and they made me feel like a superstar”.
What have you been doing in lockdown that you’ll carry on doing when real-life resumes?
“What have I been doing that I will take with me:
I have gotten very good at time blocking which I will definitely be carrying with me, but also I’ve realized I need to give myself more time. Time to wake up, time to work out, and time for each task! I always try to cram things in and I know that is not how I am going to succeed 🙂“

As you can see from the video Ani @simplysuzette has a unique style she calls her minimal ‘uniform’ which comprises of a button-down shirt, converse, vintage t-shirt, jewellery and of course sustainable jeans!
Ani is an advocate for keeping her life as sustainable & minimal as possible. I really liked her jean choices in Show & Tell as it really gave us an insight into how she lives her lifestyle.
3 Favourite Jeans
The first jean was designed by Ani from years of trying on jeans and collecting measurements that work with her body shape. She worked with a Pakistan denim manufacture Soorty Enterprises using their Cradle2Cradle Line, creating a light denim straight leg jean she clearly loves.
The second jean was from a denim brand based in Italy Blue of a Kind where they (re)craft high-quality vintage garments by picking them apart in their factory and carefully replacing them back together by hand to live another day. I truly love this idea and they have a fantastic selection of Jeans jackets, & skirts.
Last jean was a cool vintage Wrangler find at the famous Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena California.
