Just bought a pair of Bonobos Clean Slates pants. I’d been considering this for about three months, but was unsure if the pants would be worth their $118 price tag (down to $100 with 15% coupon nicepants15off). I have yet to receive them, but I will update the post once I try them on.
They are made in the USA of 100% organic cotton, which helps reduce the environmental impact of cotton farming. Organiccotton.org states that “Cotton is mostly grown in monoculture and is a very pesticide-intensive crop. Although it is only grown on 2.5% of the world’s agricultural land, it consumes 16% of all the insecticides used worldwide.”
Hopefully more companies will take Bonobos lead, by creating nice looking organic clothing, and perhaps with a little competition the price will come down a little bit. The organic cotton button down shirt market also seems like an area that could see some growth in the future, with non-organic cotton shirts already fetching $80.

that code doesn’t work anymore, but “SAVEBONOBOS” does! These were my first pants, and I love them! My next favorite are the Congos.
Unfortunately none of the codes work any more. Although, that’s actually a good thing, since instead of forcing everyone to look up codes, they have just lowered the price. This makes sense, since they want to make it as easy as possible to buy pants.
