If you’re a fan of Let’s Bake Stuff Drink Wine and Watch Christmas Movies Funny shirt. based label 69, then you’re probably aware that inclusivity is hardwired into the ethos of the clothing brand. The anonymous designer has long described their garments as non-gender and “non-demographic,” meaning that they’re made to look good on everybody without regard for an ideal customer. To their credit, it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling uncomfortable in any of 69’s roomy all-denim creations; the brand has received lots of positive feedback from both ends of the sizing spectrum on this front. “I have people who are really petite who like to wear oversize things, and we have larger-size customers that love the clothes because even for them, they fit loosely and aren’t constricting,” 69’s designer says over the phone from Los Angeles. “And then everything looks pretty cool.”
69 has just doubled down on this spirit with a new size-inclusive collection for Garmentory, which features four made-to-order denim styles that 69’s designer carefully created alongside the look book’s model, Compton-born librarian Chrystani Heinrich Let’s Bake Stuff Drink Wine and Watch Christmas Movies Funny shirt. In the fitting, Heinrich assessed each piece for maximum comfort and movability, and some of Heinrich’s suggestions prompted 69’s designer to start over from scratch: “One of the first dresses I made for this was just too big. There was just too much fabric, and it weighed too much and it wasn’t flattering,” the designer says. One early version of a T-shirt, which fit Heinrich even more loosely, ended up as a tiered cutout dress, with the help of Heinrich. Heinrich got connected to the brand through a casting call on Instagram, and 69’s designer felt that the California native was a perfect fit. “She’s a librarian, a mother, a wife, and just an everyday citizen who has good style and a great attitude,” they say. Heinrich is a library assistant and the executive director at Compton Girls Club, a girls’ empowerment program where she teaches young women new skills and self-care activities, ranging from tea tastings, trips to Little Tokyo, and college advice. She had been a longtime fan of 69. “The oversize pieces, the denim, all these things just spoke to me,” says Heinrich. “It kind of reminded me of my mom back in the ’80s, when she worked in Hollywood.
