AMO Translated Is The Latin Root Word For Love

 

Yes it is true! Ecco is proud to now be carrying a new denim line. Since we are the denim hot spot of downtown Burlington, we knew there was no better way to start off July than gaining a new denim line. Recently created, AMO denim has five specific must have styles that targets all customers. Created by industry veterans with experience from True Religion and Current Elliot, AMO’s five styles are cut from the best vintage denim and range from your true boyfriend jean to your true skinny jean. All of their denim is carefully made with love so that everyone can find their perfect jean. Below is a small excerpt from the AMO website that elaborates further on the AMO story

imgres

Longtime friends and self proclaimed denim soulmates, Kelly Urban and Misty Zollars founded AMO in 2014 out of a personal desire and void in the market.  ”We couldn’t find the jeans we wanted to wear” both stated, ”We absolutely love vintage jeans, but we find that they rarely fit well and are often uncomfortable.  We wanted that vintage look, but also wanted a jean that fit perfectly, and that felt good on.

But it doesn’t stop here, AMO also works with a non-profit organization named SNP LA. This non-profit organization is the largest nonprofit spay and neuter animal welfare organization in California. When buying a pair of AMO denim, you know that a small portion of the proceeds are going to a loving and nurturing organization. What better way to shop? Here is another excerpt from the AMO website explaining in depth what SNP LA does.

 SNP LA’s vision is to ensure that spay, neuter and veterinary wellness services are affordable and accessible to all pet owners in the Los Angeles area and to create an environment in which animal shelters no longer rely on euthanizing animals as a way of controlling pet population.  SNP LA has spayed and neutered over 100,000 cats and dogs – preventing millions of animals from being born into homelessness.

Here are the 5 styles that AMO carries. Each come in different washes which include distressing and non-distressing. Come to Ecco this July and find your new favorite pair of jeans from AMO denim!

Top Five Reasons to switch over to designer jeans.

1.They stretch to fit but keep their shape!

Let’s face it, everyone in the world of jean lovers has experienced this problem. You buy a brand spankin’ new pair that make you feel like the jean queen just to watch them slowly become your biggest fashion dilema. Nothing like jeans with a saggy bum to make you feel beautiful…not!

This is where the designers swoop in to save the day! We carry seven brands of amazing designer denim that will leave you feeling ready to sieze the day in style.
One of our best-selling brands, AG (Adriano Goldschmied), has a fabric that will hold up in every stretch battle! Their line of contour 360 denim is one for the books! These jeans are fully equiped with a four-way stretch to keep you feeling beautiful and sleek!

2.You can wash them without the color fading.

In an article in the Huffington Post searching for the best black skinny jeans this past February, three of the top 5
jeans are brands we carry in our store. Paige, Jbrand and AG all made the cut. Black jeans are a struggle for a lot
of people because no one wants runny dye ruining their outfit.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/26/best-black-skinny-jeans_n_4855980.html

These jeans aren’t on the pricey side for no reason! With high-quality fabric that holds shape as well as color you can’t go wrong. These designers took special care to provide the best fabrics out there but if you want to go the extra mile remember to wash your jeans in cold water only turned inside out and lay them flat to dry.

3.They do your booty justice.

We all want our backside to be just as confident as our front and with designer denim you can finally show off that bum without covering it with a long top. The founder of Paige jeans was recently featured in a blog to discuss her company and her passion for denim. On the top of her list of important features in her design is the butt!

Paige cranks out arguably the best butt jean of our time and they don’t plan to end the era any time soon! Paige claims
that the secret to a great looking butt is the pocket placement. The pocket should end right where your cheek meets your thigh.

4.They’ll last!

It’s never fun to part with your favorite pair of jeans so why not invest in a pair of high quality jeans that are made of durable materials? We made sure to seek out the right companies that make quality a huge part of their reputation.
Jeff Rudes, owner of J Brand jeans (ones of our beloved brands), recently spoke about the importance of sticking to the good stuff when it comes the materials used to make these fabulous jeans. In an interview for the website Jean Stories, he said that it’s good to know how to say no and be stern on the quality of your product.

We are in full support of this philosophy which is why his line of gorgeous and long-lasting jeans are one of our top products. It’s that very mindset that makes all of our designer companies so reputable. They provide you with denim that will last you through all those memorable moments in your life.

5.Comfortable is an understatement!

Who says you can’t be fashionable and comfortable at the same time? Most of us wear jeans nearly every day so
having a pair that feels like you’re wearing sweats is the dream! DL 1961 is known for their stretchy quality
and innovative fibers, which is something we can all appreciate when we are bending over to pick up our kids or
out dancing the night away! Whatever it is that you do in your jeans, you might as well do it comfortably.

EB: You’re out for a night on the town. Where are you going to eat dinner and where are you grabbing a drink?

M: Same place actually. I love Lenuig’s – the food there is incredible. And upstairs at the Lounge, probably my favorite place in town.

EB: Favorite movie?

M: Bridesmaids is pretty awesome. But my favorite movie that is a little older than that is White Oleander with Michelle Pfeiffer. It’s sad, but really good.

EB: Travel item that you just can’t leave home without?

M: Makeup brush and bronzer. Don’t leave home without it.

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: What is your favorite brand in the shop, and an item that you just knew you had to have?
